Great, as always! Do you like the W&W white? I can't find one that isn't a bear to apply!! :B~Tiffani
Hi hunthanks for your nice comment, im glad you commented cause now ive found your blog!
Thanks Andreea. :)Tiffani, Thanks, yes I like the WnW but it is a little hard to apply compared to other polishes. I seem to get bare spots and have to do more coats. I haven't found a white that goes on easy yet but LOL I've only tried two. The other was ELF.Susie

Hi Skye, :) I've gained a lot of followers lately by commenting to other blogs. I LOVE looking at especially nail blogs. You've got more followers than God. LOL,Susie
Hi Liz,Glad you got the comments enabled. I just left you one. :)Susie
Whoo that was fast! Replied you there! :)
LOL, just replied back. LOL.
Thanks for the link! Will check it out :)
Liz,You're very welcome. :)Susie
These are so cute! The perfect colors to brighten up my Monday morning. I've been shying away from white as a base polish because of what a stark contrast it would be to my skin, but this makes me want to try it.
Thanks ABOP. :o) Ya give it a whirl. :)Susie
That looks great! I looked through my plates and I don't have the 4-leaf clover but I did find s6 which has a Celtic design in the center. So I painted Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety-Split Lime (light green) on my nails and stamped with the SH ID Snappy Sorbet (orangish coral). Turned out pretty good but it's not easily recognizable for the holiday theme as yours is. I'm going to my first Irish pub this week. -jenb
Jenb,I bet yours looks great. I'll have to figure out if I follow your blog and which one it is. :)Thanks and have fun this week. at the pub,Susie
Super cute!!!! I love this, and your previous green one too.
Thanks Jyoan. :) Susie
Hi Susie, I don't have a blog. It does seem like it'd be a fun thing to do, though. I especially like yours. I'm working on a web developer certificate so any new hobbies will just have to wait. I am currently in a craft group in which I crochet - my last project was crocheting a slice of chocolate birthday cake for a friend who is watching her nutrition carefully. I put it on a colorful birthday paper plate with a plastic fork and handed it to her along with birthday wishes. She stared at it then we laughed & laughed!! Okay, how'd I get off track? I suppose if I did a blog, it might be on doing a manicure to match an outfit and easy-to-do nail art on short natural nails. Hmm, now you've got me thinking! -JenB
JenB,Well, if you do start a blog let me know where it is. I named mine Susie's Home and Hobbies so I can add anything to it. I have SO many hobbies including macramé, quilting, purse making, bread baking, graphic design, html, hand knitting, machine knitting, machine embroidery, cake and cookie decorating, Rachael Ray Cooking, Heat Press Transfer, nail polishing with Konad and Harley Riding! Web Developer eh? I tried crocheting for a bit. Seems harder than knitting but what do I know. :) I bet your friend loved the slice of crocheted cake. :)Thanks for writing,Susie
Wow, you have TONS of skills!IMHO, crocheting seems easier than knitting when it comes to small 3-D objects such as flower blossoms and leaves, food items, amigurumi and such. Maybe it's the single needle? For me, a clear and well-written pattern is what makes something easy. Okay, so now I'm curious about your knitting. Perhaps you'll show us something you made, sometime?-JenB
I've got some crochet books here. I ought to send them to you. Some I think would be collector items. My neighbor says that crocheting is much easier. :)Go here and find my hobby folder and you can see some of my playtime. :)http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/Susie
Those cakes are amazing and the quilts beautiful and everything else! And you're a good photographer, too! Wow. Thanks for thinking of me about the crochet books, I'll have to pass this time. I typically only crochet at the craft group meetings but lately the others have been wanting me to paint & stamp their nails! Oddly enough, it's easier than trying to count stitches/rows/follow a pattern while someone is telling a juicy story - and I humbly admit the story-telling is the reason I go there. We're all going through big changes in our lives and are in different decades of life (1 each in her 40s, 50s, 60s, & 70s) and sometimes a few others.Anyhoo, thank you for your lovely blog and sharing your wonderful skills with us!-JenB
JenB,Thanks. :o)Oh no others want you to paint there nails? That can get to be time consuming. I've had lots ask me and I just say 'no'. I use to be a yes girl but when hobbies are controlled by other WANTING it becomes a job and I say no thanks. :)Do you have photos anywhere?Glad to hear you enjoy the meetings. Sounds fun.Susie
Hi Susie,Sorry, no photos of hobbies or nail art. I do have some Flash to put up on a website sometime. I made a 6-scene digital animation of preparing for the holidays, among other things. Hmmm, let's see, I think I saved my Flash class final project. Make sure to have the speakers on.Do you have to have a special kind of camera to take the fingernail close-ups? Or a certain level of magnification? I've just got a point & shoot digital and was wondering what would be needed for fingernail photos. Hmm, yup, I've been saying, "Yes" too much and then been stressed out about not having enough time to get other stuff done. And having an attitude problem about schoolwork, for some reason this semester my body & mind are just rejecting it!! Over-dramatizing now, too!Well, next time you're in the Sonoran Desert you are absolutely welcome at the craft group! 2nd Saturday of each month in Phoenix. And we're getting together for tequila shots a week from Monday, so that's good time to visit, too! -JenB
Your Flash Class Final was so neat. Loved it.My camera has a macro setting and that's what you need for close up shots. :)We are going through your area in Aug on the Harley. We will be traveling from here in northern NY to Chicago, IL and getting on old Route 66 through to CA and up the coast to Washington State and the northern states back home. :)Tequila shots? Whew. I don't know if I could handle even one. :)Susie
Hi Susie,Thanks! You can tell I'm not an artist (actually I'm a software engineer) but I am creative and it's tons of fun to make stuff in Flash.Macro setting...okay I'll go look on my camera to see if it has one of those, I know it has a "face" setting. I want to learn how to work the camera's features.Wow, what a great trip! I've heard of Route 66. I looked it up, it goes through northern Arizona! I think I'm about 3 hours south of Flagstaff. Hey, I could drive up to say hi if you're driving by at a convenient time. What a wonderful trip you've planned! Okay, that's tequila shots plural for the group of us! Hee hee. Probably one each just to say we tried it. I'm not sure why but there're a lot of references to tequila here. Of course we love the blue agave plant for agave nectar so now we should try the tequila from the same plant. -JenB
JenB,You are creative for sure.We never know when we are going to travel through anywhere. One tequila will probably be enough. :)Susie
Very cute mani!
Thanks a lot.Susie
Thanks ARTOFNAIL. :)Susie
