Over-The-Top Sweet Shoppe!

Yes, I know here in America it's usually just called a "Candy Store", but that sounds so boring. Today's idea was a combination of Abbie mentioning she liked the sprinkles more sparse, Norma's hubby mentioning cake and trying really hard to showcase the giveaway (have you entered yet?) prizes.



TA-DA!!! hehehehe Okay, let's backtrack a little to the beginning.



Started with two coats of Sinful Colors Cotton Candy, one coat of Nails Inc York and finally one coat of Sally Hansen Fuzz-Sea. Topped off with one coat of Julep's Freedom polymer topcoat because Aaron was out and unable to complain about the "rubber cement" smell. :p Then a peak into the Kiss Nail Artist 3D Charms.



It comes with a tube of glue and the... container part that holds it is just snap-together plastic bubble... tray?



Like that. I don't know if it's called something, but that's what it is. I had to use the heart-shaped cake because it's the biggest one in the set, then I decided "why not go nuts" and added the smallish rhinestones (middle row/far right; they don't have silver backs so they look kinda pastel which is cool) and one of the mediumish gumdrop looking ones.



Not really practical, but so fun! So exactly how big is that cake charm?



BAM! The glue sticks it on really well (it is a bit liquid so you might want to let it get tacky so the charms don't slide around too much) so it would take seriously snagging it on something to pull it off on accident. Like the bows from the other set (omg I forgot how cute that was!) it's not curved.



*shrugs* Still insanely cute. ;) This one's definitely going on Tumblr if I can remember my login information. lol

Saleen is doing much better. She came bursting out three times last night expecting to be fed. I think hiding under the couch has screwed up her concept of time. :p She's a little skittish about being petted, but... that should pass. She was abused before we got her so she's always been a little... off. She's not our first rescue, though, so we know enough to just give her space (or seclusion) until she's ready. Yesterday was a good Swag-day. Over 200SBs. (there are people who can get over 1000 in a day and OMG I could have my tablet in no time!) Still slow but steady progress. Less than $5 'til I can cashout and close-out Sendearnings. *yeesh* Then the same agonizingly slow process for inboxdollars. OH! Got the shipping notice for my Nfu Ohs! hehehe Can't wait! OMG Those bottles are to die for. Also, I spotted some LA Girl texture polishes at HEB yesterday. I think I'll grab one to see how much they are (no price on the display and the stupid self-scanner didn't work) and then take it from there. The colors are 50/50, but there is at least one I don't have. Looked like an OPI (Oz) dupe. I'm thinking... China Glaze for tomorrow. I have more of those unswatched than any other brand. o_O I know! It's crazy. Think I might finally be ready for Unplugged. The last of the eCollection. That I just had to have. :p Finally Friday! Hope everyone had a great week!

  1. BWAHAH That cake is so HUGE on your nail!

    OOh Nfu Oh! Can't wait to see pics! After evilly enabelling you I thought 'hummm I was right, they're gonna be gone like the dodo soon!' and bought 3 myself. Is there a word for when you enable someone else and end up enabling yourself too? LOL

    Aww so glad Saleen is doing better :)

    1. LMAO!! Fell into your own trap. ;) I don't know if there's one word for it, but it's still funny. Which ones did you end up getting? You know you're going to have to email me pics, right?

      It's crazy to me that people use huge charms like this on all of their nails. BBeauty Shades does some great designs with charms, but man... it's kinda heavy. lol

      :D Thanks. Still keeping an eye on her, but she's looking SO much better. Guess she's not ready to give up just yet.

    2. hehe! Served me right, huh ;) I got Nfu Oh 39, 56 and 59. I *may* go for 40 too if you do a comparison pic and it's not too similar to Green Ocean.
      For sure! I'll def email you pics when I get them. I'm super excited! AND a good chunk of these were paid for with free internet money *hugs Lizzy for awesome idea* WHOOT ^u^

    1. LOL I've cut back a lot recently. It makes me a little sad, but I'm trying to keep my other goals in mind for a while. ;) I actually ended up taking the cake off before we headed out. I didn't want to lose it by putting my hand in my pocket or something. :p
