Calling for Reinforcements!

I've been extremely upset the last couple of days.  I cried last night, I cried this morning on the way into work, I cried during work, I'm crying right now.  I know that something is wrong.  I have a general idea, but the more I think, the more of a headache I develop.  I've had a headache since I woke up.  I know that I will figure this out and then I can actually articulate it and not sound all weepy.

That being said, I know I still have some serious updates to post.  I'm hoping that will make me feel a bit better, because, let's face it, nails are what keep me happy these days.

For starters, look at the ridiculous amount of products I got at Bath & Body Works a couple of weeks ago.  They had a buy 3 get 3 free special (is that a regular thing?  If so...that's dangerous).  I'm obsessed with everything I got except for this 'Sensual Amber' shower stuff.  It's just way too sweet smelling - I feel like I'm rubbing maple syrup all over myself.  A bit much, although it IS a nice smell depending on how much of it you smell at a time.

On to the nails.  I have no idea who came up with this, but it is brilliant and seems to work like a charm.  Reinforcement labels.  Amazing.  Up until now, I have used Scotch tape that I had cut into the right shapes (ghetto, right?), but it turns out these are just the right shape for french tips, reverse french, etc. 
As you can see, you just put the reinforcement label where you want it, paint over your nail and let it dry, and BAM!  All fanci-fied!  Remove the label, put some top coat on, and you're set.  In my case, I didn't let the undercoat dry quite long enough so I had to go in and make a couple of touch-ups.  I've tried this since then, though, with that in mind, and it worked like magic.

Hope you enjoy, and next time I'll be in better spirits, promise!

XXOO,
Steph

p.s. sorry for the crappy phone-taken pics!
