The pain has been replaced by another bout of sinusitis which is complete with blood accumulation! Blood has been dripping out of my nose all day. My head kept pounding so I literally slept…all day. Seriously, I think I was awake for no more than three hours today. This happens quite often and the blood sorts itself out within a couple of days. I just wish I had not lost my steamer in the move!

When I feel better I will get back to my normal schedule but for now I cannot really keep up!

Today’s prompt for the OMD2 challenge is Lavender. I love lavender. It is not only pretty but smells and does wonderful things.

Today also marks the first day trying striping tape. Yes! You read that correctly! I purchased real striping tape and I kind of love it.

I hope you like today’s manicure!


OMD2 Day 3: Lavender

I started with 3 coats of Formula X by Sephora Thrilling. I got a sample as part of a Sephora purchase. So far, I like the colors and formulas but the sample size cap and brush are so small it is difficult to get a clean coat. It applied unevenly and dried in clumps. I do not think this was so much the formula as the brush.

I detailed with bubble wrap and Milani Vivid Violet, Black Cherry and striping tape. I re-use bubble wrap and some Pop Beauty joined the party!
