Funky Cheetah! Yay!

I recently joined a FB group called Polish-aholics Anonymous.  At first I must admit I felt like the only cornball doing so but I love the group and have learned so much being a member in such a short time frame.

Every Monday they have a nail art challenge.  This weeks theme was animals, so I decided to try out this Funky Cheetah look I've been thinking about.  I looooooove animals prints BUT for some odd reason was never able to do it on my own, but this week I tried really, really hard and while it's not perfect I like it because it's so ME!

Funky Cheetah! Rawwr!

My New Best Friend: OPI's Original Nail Envy!

Last month I endured some epic nail breakage and had to file all my nails down, I was so depressed!  


I had been trying to let my nails grow for awhile just so I could have a visible nail line (just a little one) but after a week or so they'd always break.  Then I came across cutepolish's "Grow Your Nails Fast" video and thought I was doing everything right until I noticed I wasn't using a nail strengther, being so 'original' I saw the one she was using and snatched it up on ebay for around $9!  lol.

It arrived around the 20th of July I used it for a week as the directions stated, once the week was up I used it as a base coat for all my manicures and look at my nails now.  I'm soo in love!!


I know to many people this isn't anything since they naturally have strong beautiful nails but my nails have never been like this before.  I really do believe Nail Envy is working because one has yet to break since I've started using it.

Does anyone else use OPI's Nail Envy line?  What are your thoughts?
