Happy Mother's Day Everyone ! I did this manicure last night , I am trying to grow out my nails , but it doesn't seem to be working . I notice when I do my nails than my natural nails grow. When I don't have them done they grow out , but the are split and chip and end up breaking . For this manicure , I put tips and cut them really short , I used IBD builder gel , and Sally Hansen polish in some gold color , I can't remember the name of the color . I decided to use my Konad stamps , I chose some cool little flowers that kind of look like stars ! Because all Mom's are Stars !

Decided to do something different and new . I went with an oval shape . I used nail tips to add length and instead of using regular IBD builder gel , I used IBD Intense seal. We'll see how they hold up , so far so good.
The intense seal was a lot easier to use instead of the regular builder gel and it was less messy. also I did not have to file my nails as much . I add the tips filed them until they were even with my nails , then dusted them off and polished on the intense seal . I dried my nails under the UV light for three minutes . They came out completely dry , then I buffed them with a white block , applied cuticle oil and polished them . It was so easy .
They are not as think as normal gel nails , they have more of a natural look if that is what you are looking to do. They feel pretty strong and secure. If this works I may never do regular builder gel again. My whole goal is to grow my nails and keep them protected . I am hoping that the intense seal doesn't crack or anything , we shall see. I always use the Intense seal over my regular gel manicures and have never had a problem. I had to add a flower for a spring design from my Konad nail stamp collection.

So I broke a nail while cleaning my bathroom . However I did not mess up my nails with my previous gel manicure. I decided to keep my nails short and natural , as it is easier for me to do stuff . I put clear gel on my nails and then used a Silver nail polish as the base and did full nail stamp on my finger next to my pinky and a candy cane stamp on my middle finger. I think I may just keep my nails short , as it a lot easier to do stuff without worrying about breaking a nail, it is also a lot easier to type and use my phone . I am so happy that I have my natural nails back and that I am able to paint them and decorate them .

The Apple Cider vinegar worked!!! I now have nice clear nails, they are growing slowly though . I got a new job for a while and I am hoping that I get a permanent position soon. Everyone that I work with gets their nails done and I was missing my Artificial Nails . I did a new set last night , and what is so funny is that last Thanksgiving I did my nails the exact same color with the same image on them.

Its been six month since I lost my job as an appeals and grievance coordinator for SCAN Health Plan. I honestly don’t know happened , perhaps it was my fault , but having a bad coworker who gets away with everything makes you think , hey if there keeping this person , no matter what I do they will still keep me. Boy was I wrong, I better, I should of handled the letter right away when I seen it , instead of playing dumb . I was over whelmed with so much work and the toxic environment caused me to just be plain lazy. I knew that this case was going to get me fired and it did.
I am taking this termination as a sign that I should maybe change careers , time for a new beginning. Jason said maybe I should look into going back to school and c complete my teaching credentials. I got accepted into a program with CSULB. I start in September , however with me being out of work I have to figure out a way to pay for it . Now Jason is bothering me about getting a job . I am trying but it is so hard , I applied for everything in my field and even went to a job agency. Jason is now telling me that he doesn’t think that I will make a good teacher and he keeps throwing job ideas at me .
Honestly I truly do not want to go back to work, I just want to stay home , clean the house And volunteer at the school for the boys . I just wish I could somehow when the lottery so I would not have to worry about money.
This whole experience has left me feeling so depressed and I am now questioning my role as a Mother and wife.
I feel that my husband is starting to dislike me, he is constantly teasing me and he tries to manage me and tells me I am not doing a good job. I just wish everything was different.

I can not believe how much my nails have grown , I thought I would never have nails again , and now I have natural healthy nails. I was so excited that they grew out and I was finally able to paint them . I used a pink satin by sally henson for the base , and Konad nail stap of floating hearts with red special konad stamping polish . My flash was too bright I think ,so you can not really see the red hearts . I also have been using sally henson diamond top coat and nail growth formula , its in a gold bottle and man it is really working . I am so happy to have my nails back !!!
