Today is my one year blogiversary! I can't believe it's already been a year! Whoa. In the month of October 2011 I only had 11 page views. A bleak start, but I had high hopes. 370 posts, 2144 comments and over a quarter of a million page views later, I don't feel quite so much like a newby anymore and am happy to say that I'm still enjoying myself.
In honor of the celebration, I'm sharing these fabulous looking festive candles that I did for my birthday. You can find the original post here.
I've had a few ladies ask me recently how I polish my nails. If this is an area you feel like you could use a little practice and how-to in, make sure you pin or bookmark this illustration by Lacquerized for future reference. It's the best one I've seen.
The only thing I would add is to make sure you wrap your tips. Otherwise, this is exactly how I do it. Then I though, what the hay, I'll make a how-to video. These are totally on the fly. I'm no professional videographer, but they'll do.
First we have a video of the technique I use to polish my nails. You'll find it's much like the illustrations above.
Next is how I clean up as I go with an orange stick.
I hope you found some tid bit of information that was useful to you! Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
