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.

Candy Cane Nails.

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.

Valentines Nails

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 !!!

Hi all,

Its been forever , I stopped doing my nails , my husband has band me from doing my nails and insisted that I soak them in vinigar.   I soaked my nails for a couple of night and guess what my infected nails cleared up and are started to grow .  I can actually show my nails without being ashamed.    They still have a little more to grow and I can't wait for them to grow so that I can paint them and decorate them with my Konad stamps !
