Why Won’t Shellac Stay?

Shellac nails are a nail lovers dream come true. No longer the days where it only lasts 2 days, and the waiting……. and the waiting…… and more waiting… and the “Sh*t. I touched them.”

Shellac (which is a brand name) is a gel polish which cures in a LED/UV light. They are dry the second they come out of that bad boy and are supposed to last up to 2-4 weeks. But what if they don’t? What happened? Who’s fault is it? Should I get my money back?

Contest Weiners

Aww no one answered so no one won! It’ll tell you anyways

 

The reason I had blue on lips was for when Smaug the dragon first woke up, he was blue in the movie.

Smaug_is_blue

 

We could also get into a very specific nerd trivia and also say it was because in Canada there was a cover of the Hobbit book that came out where he was coloured blue on the cover.

My husband, a friend and I distinctly remembering this all due to our confusion that he was described as red and golden.

 

Anyways sucks that no one won the awesome nails.

What would you like to win if I was doing another contest?

For those of you who do not personally know me: I love anything and everything fantasy. I love the writings of JRR Tolkien, George Martin, king Arthurian legends, faeries, elves, trolls, and wizards!

So for the whole day waiting to go to the premier of the movie I was very excited. And wore my Mordor shirt and did my makeup Smaug themed.
