Hiya everyone! I have been really busy the past few days and will continue to be until Sunday. I was in a wedding last weekend and had a complete blast! So much fun with family and friends :) I've got a big test this coming Saturday so I've hunkered down a bit until then trying to get some last minute studying/cramming in. After that, though, I'll be free to do whatever again! Yay! 

Despite the madness in my life, I have been continuing with my April Nail Art Challenge! I have two themes to share with you - "swatch" and "braided."

The swatch is the abso-stinkinlutely amazing Across the Universe by Deborah Lippmann. DEAD. This polish is seriously stunning. It's like having mermaids on my fingers!? What? Beautiful in my opinion! This was a Christmas gift from the boyfriend and is something I wouldn't normally splurge on for myself so I love getting to wear it. 

Next is my braided mani. This was seriously SO FRUSTRATING! I was lulled into a false sense of security with this one. I thought it would be a walk in the park to create but I don't know that I've ever been as frustrated with any mani as I was with this one. And then, when all was said and done, I didn't particularly like how it came out. I have my issues with them but I'll let you come to your own conclusions on them ;) 
Aside from my nail painting, I am studying like crazy. I am lucky that I have the week off from work and am spending it up north at my parent's house...I don't have to worry about food! It's amazing! The other amazing thing is where I get to study. My parents have a fabulous backyard and I have made myself at home there while studying. 
I just love it here! 

The final excitement I have to share is silliness. My boyfriend's brother was having dinner with us last night and happened to arrive while I was painting my nails. He decided that he was also going to get in on that action and ended up regretting it almost immediately ;) 
Boys are silly. I did commend him on how creative he got with his design and colors though ;)

Happy Polishing!
