Hey Everyone!

Just a quick post today, sorry it’s so late! The amazing Jeanette (aka The Swatchaholic) was kind enough to send me the Essence Vampire’s Love Collection, and my oh my are these polishes gorgeous! Expect to see swatches and a review very soon. :-D I’ve been wearing The Dawn Is Breaking (a beautiful light grey polish with black flecks and silver shimmer) for a few days now and decided to try my hand at Nailside’s Freehand Cloud Manicure using some of the polishes from the Vampire’s Love Collection.

This was SO incredibly easy to do, and I love the way it turned out! I need to work on making my edges nice and round, but for a first try I’m pretty pleased with myself. :-)

Polishes Used:

Essence – The Dawn Is Broken
Essence - Into The Dark
Essence – True Love



And in other excellent news, I just started an apprenticeship at a local salon to become a licensed nail tech! I had orientation today and tomorrow will be my first full day there. The first 6-8 weeks will mostly be textbook work and other “boring” things. But after that I get to do practicals and work on real people. I’m super pumped! And I’m also going to be super tired, since I’ll have to put in 20 hours a week at the salon to graduate on time on top of working my usual 40 hour weeks at my regular job (midnight shift)…

But it’s gonna be so so SO worth it. :-D
