nails of the weekend

Still going to do the AndreasChoice lip thing...
however this week was a bust for anything other than trying to stay upright. I do swear I seem to have the worst luck! Got sidelined by a GI bug that was developed by evil scientists! 12 straight hours of the worst pain and vomiting I have ever withstood. And since my work place is so understanding about illnesses...back in the next day. Did I mention I'm a nursing assistant? and work is where I caught the bug in the first place? So 4 days of constant handwashing,santizing, and glove wearing...and needless to say my nails were toast. Been putting on a coat or two of Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails. And since I'm off today I did a quicky color of L.A. Colors NP116 Berry Red.
Not too terribly impressed all in all...3 coats and it's barely as red as the bottle. But for a two day nail color I guess it will do!
I will say this, they have minimal chipping and I've done a ton of dishes this weekend.

experiment time!

I really should not watch so much YouTube...

that being said for the next week I'm going to try the suggestions that Andrea from Andreaschoice has in her video (link below) for pinker lips. Now I have some really pigmented lips...but my upper lip has been getting lighter... Not 100% sure what is going on...may very well be an age thing, but let's try it..

Love the start of this video.."put the cup down...!"
I already do the toothbrush trick. She has some really good suggestions. (never heard the orange one..)
