Lily has amazing timing & Thrisza is my Inglot angel!

Everyone knows that this past week has been extremely stressful
and flat out craptasticlysucklios!

Today I managed to convince the web host that sucked to give me my money back and release my domain.
(OK so I bitched then out and threatened to post their name on my blog, twitter, myspace, scream it from the mountain tops, file a complaint with BBB and I did write an email to the owner directly)

With all of that somehow Lilynail 
somehow managed to perfectly time this little surprise package of joy!
This is a true RAOK (random act of kindness) and I appreciate it more than words can express!
I needed some cheering up and this did the trick!
I'm sorry it's late and I forgot to write down the names so I will add them tomorrow.
(there was a casualty that did not survive and I haven't had a chance to clean these up yet)

Why yes that is a gorgeous silver holo and YAY another H&M HK!

Jack Skelington nail decals (you know I adore jack) some wicked coral/orange Sephora nail patches, Hello Kitty lip gloss that smells so yum, a sample of Lush I think it's lemony flutter or whatever it's called.
Lily also set the beautiful Zen card (I so need some Zen) several other fabulous nail decals the beautiful gloss' at each end and some fabulous candy which my children devoured, but not the chocolates....those are MINE!
Thank you so very much Lily, you made my day! ((hugs))

Part 2 of my cheer up

I did a swap with the gorgeous Thriszha of Fab UR Nails
Part of that was my very first Inglot #342 and it is beautiful!
I used it for the first time lastnight when I decided to do a statement mani for that back biting host that we'll not mention. I used my gorgeous Inglot 342 and OPI Brand New Skates (a gift from my little Ange).

I'm playing with my MIL's OTT lamp to see if I want one or not.

All of the pictures in this post are taken in OTT light in my lightbox.
They are very color acurate...even the purples are dead on.

But my skin looks odd, washed out, strange.
What to you think of these pictures vs my regular pics?
Do you see a difference? Which do you like better and why?

Thank you to all of you my readers and friends! I appreciate your support and kind words this past week!
Extra snugglies and smooches for you all!

  1. That Inglot is gorgeous! And that was definitely perfect nail mail timing! I'm glad your hellish week is over and things are working out. :]

    I think I prefer your old lighting. To me, these look a little bit grayed and washed out. I love the warm look of your old pictures.

  8. O:-) I think your just an angel! I'm so happy that you'll be getting your money back and release your domain! You are one fantastic women.  You had a lot to yell about and it was good you had this coompany to take it out on.  They did deserve it.  I pray the rest resolves easily.  I still can't believe the stupidity of people.  I prefer your old lighting.  I guess maybe you need a more expensive camera? I don't know, just guessing.  Wish I could win one for you because I would pass it along to you.  I wish I could be there to talk with you and give you a million hugs.  You need it this week doll.  Love you.

  9. *sighs* I have to learn to look at pictures in another window. I wrote up a helpful comment, only to lose the whole thing when I went to look at the Jack Skellington decals again. I am so silly some days.

    ANYWAY, I know I love working under my father-in-law's Ott light, but I don't know anything about using them for photography. Maybe try turning it down some/moving it farther away and filling in with the light you usually use? That might give you truer colors while still giving a more acceptable skin tone. Your skin does look a bit off in these.

    Also, it's not your lighting that gives problems with purples. Digital cameras HATE purple, even the professional ones. I spent a good deal of my prior career finding ways to fix purples in professional photography. So much fun...*rolls eyes*

    You're lucky to have such good friends to heer you up. You must be an awesome person! :D

  10. Any clues what caused the nail polish casualty? Was it broken at the neck?
    (i am trying to study the best way to pack to avoid casualties) So far I think the best method is in the cardboard 6 packs with just a few styro peanuts to steady them inside and lots of bubble wrap outside. (Have not seen any busted that way.)

  12. woooooohooooo! BNS on the flipper finger!  glad it got some proper use. that lamp looks pretty damn good, but I have the same problem with my OTT washing out my skintone.  but if it means accurate purples, maybe I'll suck it up.

    You have been in my thoughts. I am so glad you were able to right the situation. I had no doubts that you would. 

    Your skin looks so much better than mine under the OTT light. You at least look alive. I've only really used my OTT light in the winter. 

    Speaking of fabulous packages, I used those little silver spheres you sent me long ago. I want to post of a review of Diana's Bow too now that I have gotten over my shyness of doing lip reviews. It's so sparkly! xoxo!
