Actually, as I am writing this, it is not the morning. It is 11:23pm. But I am scheduling this post because I likely still won't have power in the morning.
That's right! The stupid storm knocked out my power, but the really great and awesome and totally superb part is that the vast majority of my street has power, but not me. Me and 2 houses to the left. My neighbor to the right? He has power. AWESOME.
More awesome? The power people have no idea when they will be able to fix it because it is such a small pocket of outage. They are responding to bigger ones. YAY.
Soooo. Here I am at my dad's store again, setting up a blog post.
(And he wanted coffee.)
(And what else do I have to do to entertain myself?)
Power outages do not keep me from the 31 Day Challenge!!
Today's theme is Stripes.
I will admit, I was not able to actually do my striped nails on the correct day but how lucky was I that I had a striped mani in my archive of things to post?
And it is a great mani, too! I did this one just before deciding to take on the challenge again.
It's probably a little bit spring-ish, but hey, I like it.
The base color I used is Essie - Haute As Hello. I forgot to take swatch pictures of this polish on its own but I absolutely adore it!
I bought it (along with three other Essies) with some of my sponsorship funds from Apothica.
It's a great coral orange, it does need three coats for full coverage but the formula goes on easy and dries really quick. And the color is so fun!
I don't have many Essie polishes but in general, the ones I have rock. I should really get some more!
The stripes were done with six Art Club Stripers. I believe the set they come in is called the Lights set. But I'm not 100% sure. I got this set (seven plus a topcoat) for $14.99 at Winners! I found the brushes really great and now I want more Art Club stripers. The color combo is a bit unusual but I think they all went together really nicely in the end.
Well... That's all! I guess I'll go back to my dark house now... :(
Tomorrow is my birthday! The power had better be back for my birthday!
HOW ELSE WILL WE BAKE A BIRTHDAY CAKE?! OMG!
Cross your fingers for me!!
