Little Pieces

I really not sure if i should post this up. Its not my best nail art to show up. First. i didnt bring the items needed for nailing. Second, the lighting is very bad. Three, i couldnt use nail art pen good yet, still need more practice. Four, the inspiration was very less in creating design. Anyway, i always want to write here and post this up!

I named this nail art " Little Pieces". I started with base coat from Pixy, 2 coats of PK212 for half nail only from Skin Food, 2 coats of GR01 from Missha for French line. Then i created dots in different size with White Nail Art Pen from Etude House.  For the ring. i made different design with same colors.

Items i used :


 Thanks for viewing. And Happy New Year, may all your wishes will be fulfiled in 2011!

Det är alltid lite spännande med ett nytt år. Förhoppningsvis för det nya året med sig många nya kul projekt och utmaningar. Som att vända blad. Härligt! Gott Nytt År!

Its always exciting with a new year coming up and you don't know what is going to happen. New projects and new challenges maybe. I wish you all a Happy New Year!

A Personal Message and Inspiration for 2011

Have you ever felt like you belonged on the "island of misfit toys"? Well, I have... I was at dinner last night with two great friends, and they were telling me about the high-school reunion that I recently missed. The truth is, I actually went to one school from 1st-9th, another for 10th and 11th, and we moved to a different city for my Senior year, thus a third school. So, which school class reunion am I supposed to attend? If you have really read this far, I promise there is a point to my story.
For a brief moment at dinner last night, I did feel sorry for myself, feeling like I did not belong to one certain group. Then, I snapped out of it. Don't get me wrong, I am very grateful for all of my friends and experiences I have encountered along the way. But, I am a firm believer of living in the present. I am 43 years old, and last year I would have told you that 2009 was the best year of my life. However, now that we have come to the end of 2010, I would say that this year has been even better.
So to all of you ~ If you are not doing what you love, change your ways.
If there is a hobby you want to try ~ try it!
Believe in Yourself
Cherish your family and friends
Live, Laugh, and most certainly Love

Here is to being grateful for our past, and looking ahead to 2011!
I hope you will join me here each and every day on Bright Bold and Beautiful.
