My 1st Nail Post!

Hey Y'all!!!  Hope 2010 is starting off well for you guys!!!  I kinda have a Sephora haul but instead of taking pics of a bunch of stuff and talking about it at once I decided to do one or two things at a time.....  Gotta save my content, lol!!!  Since "hauling" isn't really something I get to do much anymore... But anyways....  This is gonna be my first nail related post! I was contacted by a rep from Nailene before I moved to ATL in October asking me if I wanted to try some of there products!!  Of course I said yes. I told her that I was moving and it may be a VERY long time before I got around to posting reviews..Then I left the stuff at home (my parents house) and I shipped it here to ATL with a bunch of other stuff I left there that I planned on shipping to myself.  I've also been wearing an acrylic overlay over my natural nails since April.  I finally took them off Christmas Eve........ I decided not to get them done for a while because I don't exactly have a JOB! So it's not right for me to be getting my hair & nails 'did'.... Just hair! XD
So here's my nail porn....  I really suck at painting my own nails.... It always looks like a blind 3rd grader did them.... I'm not a nail blogger so don't get all pissy if I'm not using the correct nail lingo!

I used Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat as a base...(Not pictured)

China Glaze VII  (707) Two coats

Nailene Acrylic Strong Topcoat 

Nailene Acrylic Strong Topcoat - "Nailene brings the salon home to you with Acrylic Strong. Lock in color instantly with this super glossy topcoat guaranteed not to chip or peel. Seals in polish for days."

Paint Job!!

My nails are really short!! I lost all the length when I sawed off the acrylic overlay.. They also are a little lumpy... Which it my fault for not removing the overlay properly. Some of the thinnest layers are still there and I'm to lazy to soak...  I also have a retarded pinky nail!!! I thought it was acrylic that I was taking off, but no!! *FAIL*... Now I have 1/3 of a pinky nail :( I let it rest for a few days.  I actually had to wear a Hello Kitty Band-Aid on it for a few days because it was so painful :( ... So after it kinda healed... I just painted over the skin....

I didn't wanna get crazy so I decided to add a little bling to my thumbs only! I did this on New Years Eve so I used stars!!  It made sense at the time....
The stickers were really easy to use! I mean who can't use a sticker! I found that using a tweezers to remove the sticker works best and using a tweezers to place & press down the sticker is helpful.  

Don't forget to add another coat of top coat!!! to help the sticker stay!!!

I usually hate not having an acrylic overlay on my nails because self done manis don't last on me at all.  I must say that this stayed "chip free" for about 5 1/2 days!!! That's actually a long time for me!!!!

Nailene Acrylic Strong Topcoat- I give this product! If this topcoat can make my home manis last longer, hey!
