I thought I'd do a mini video on how I do my nails cuz I didn't take the time to do any swatches and FOTDs =p Sorry!! I'll try to do 2 FOTDs this weekend. I hate the sound of my voice (it's whiney when I'm not trying to be), maybe one day I'll do one with my voice hehe.
I usually do the gradient style, it gets kinda boring actually, but I like it a lot more than the regular "2 color coats and top coat".
My favourites are the Majolica Majorca polishes. They go on relatively sheer which makes layering colors easy. I also like them because they dry quickly. I only own 4 colors at the moment. Since they're half the size of most other bottles, I can finish it quickly without getting tired of the colors.
I got the technique for the gradient nails from one of the Majolica Majorca website tutorials. I think it was called "like an antique doll"??
Please refer to my previous post for a picture.
I forgot to mention in the video, on the last step, I use a slightly bigger glob of polish. It's to make sure that the top is the darkest to get that nice effect.
I seem to have gotten a tax return on my pay, I dunno why haha, but it's quite nice to come back to fewer deductions.
Income tax: -89,800
Residential Tax: -8,960
Med. insurance: 47,900
Food expenses: 15,000
= 45,140 total deductions???
Umm..how does that equal to only $45 deducted?? haha...oh well!! I'm quite happy with that! Considering I usually get deducted more than $200 a month XD
Other random school news...I had an English teacher meeting with only half of them there..wtf.. and I was explaining how I was gonna go about teaching my lessons and how frustrated I am because my coteachers are useless (while being nice about it). I tend to talk quite loudly, so all the teachers in that office thought I was pissed hahaha. Well, I did get kinda pissed. I had to repeat the same thing to my teachers like 10 times..only for it to go out the other ear...@__@
Did I ever mention that the Korean strawberries are quite tasty? They're super cheap too. If there's a fruit truck driving by, they usually sell a big tub for less than $3USD. I'm a bit wary about the super cheap ones tho. There was one time I was washing some strawberries, then I noticed after washing, the red was a bit paler! XD
