Silver NOTD

So, after my freehand success on the 4th, I thought I'd do it again ... and I did a pretty good job on the actual nail art, but I ended up not too pleased with my color choices. The silver base - Sally Hansen Celeb City - was so shiny it made it difficult to see the art - done with China Glaze QT & 2Nite - except in indirect light or shade. Chalk it up to another learning experience:


Also, 2 more people think I'm adorable!


I got the Adorable Blog Award from Lacquer Laine & Nailz-in-Aus =) The rules for this award are:

–Include the logo in your blog or post
–Nominate as many blogs which you like
–Be sure to link your nominees within your post
–Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog
–Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received this award

Keeping it short but hopefully sweet, I have just one nominee today: Tartofraises : Nail Art sur Ongles Naturels This amazing nail art blog is in french but she does provide translations & the part I love the most is she has a ton of tutorial VIDEOS on her blog! She makes it all looks so easy, I now have a lot more designs I want to try =) I found this blog actually because she found me first & after I saw her nails I was quick to add her to my blogroll - which I of course encourage you all to browse at your leisure =)

I promise the Helmer pics are coming soon. Maybe even tonight if I can get my butt in gear, but don't hold me to that too strictly LOL. Thanks for reading.
