About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

Long Time No See!!

Well, I haven't been around for a really long time.  I was working a job that I didn't like and it sort of took any life I had out of me.  So, now I'm off and looking for something else.  In the meantime, I'm going to try and keep up with my blog and post on a regular basis.  Hopefully, you missed me. :)  I don't have a paper craft project to show you, but I want to show you what I did do last night.  I've been spending some time on Pinterest (too much according to my husband) and saw a picture of some pretty manicures.  It inspired me to dust off the old cosmetics case and pull out some of my nail polishes. Ombre is really the thing right now, so I thought I would give it a go and do something with that on my nails.  Here is how they turned out:

I first applied 2 coats of base coat. My favourite colour is blue, so I used two different shades of blue and then faded into a green applied in stripes on a cosmetic sponge, then dabbed onto the nail.  I put a glitter polish over the entire nail after, with a second coat at the bed of the nail.  Its all finished with a top coat.  I really like the way it turned out.

Here are the products I used:

I love the Pro-FX base coat and top coat.  My nails are the healthiest they have ever been since using the base coat.  I never thought it would make a difference, but it does.  And my nails don't stain when removing the polish as much. The nailpolish colours are:  Pier 17 (dark blue, NYC), Blue Me Away (medium blue, Sally Hansen). High Line Green (green, NYC). I bought all the products at WalMart.

Well, thats all for today.  I will be back this weekend with a couple paper craft projects to show you. :)

See you then...
