Caution! Nail polish is strong smelling with harmful chemicals. Make sure you are in a well-aired room when painting your nails.

gosh abby, what the heck happened?!

I got stranded in the woods for half a year, surviving only on twigs and leaves and my awesome surviving skills, while battling bears, rattle snakes, and the like, getting trapped in swamps and making it out just in time, and getting stung by killer bees, but saving myself with a special suave I came up with using only tree bark and saliva.

I recently got a comment saying I haven't been on here since May. And I was all like "what! nahh... I like just got on here, what the heck." Then I went to my blog and soon found out that I hadn't been on since May. In fact, I kind of forgot which email I used to create this blog and it took me a few minutes to figure it out.

This, my friends, is the sign of a very neglected blog.  But to be perfectly honest, I really haven't even painted my nails all that much since May.  I remember painting them like 3 times since then.

I still love nail polish.  I still like all the colors nail polish allows me to wear on my nails.  But I'm kind of not as big of a fan of doing designs on my nails anymore.  I never was and probably never will be great with a paintbrush, and since I really haven't done many designs since May, I've gone from okay to, well, bad.    

So we shall see what becomes of this blog.  Will I pick up nail designing later down the road?  Will I decide to further forget about this blog?  Will I change the blog to something else?  I'm not exactly sure at the moment.

But since May, I definitely have still been blogging.  Blogging has always been a part of me which I can't forget.  And if you aren't following my main blog, you can check it out here:

I am still completely shocked that I have 200 followers over there.  It's amazing and my readers are the very best ever.

My crafting blog goes through phases of breaks, but since opening my Etsy shop (not currently selling anything, but I will be soon) I'm pretty sure that blog won't get so neglected anymore.  You can check out my latest projects here:

I just uploaded a video on some things I've been working on over at my Youtube.

Speaking of youtube, I've still been making videos.  Not necessarily nail videos though...

I've got a few more videos up over on my youtube, so make sure to check it out.

So will I post more nail design videos?

Well... we shall see.

christian relief fund

Hey!  1 week of voting started today for the Chase Community Giving contest,  round 2.  One of the contenders will win $500,000!  Christian Relief  Fund has a very good chance if we help them.  These guys help children  in 3rd world countries by providing food, clean water, education, etc.   If just 10,000 facebook users vote for them, they can win this grant!   It will feed 1277 children for a year.   So far we have around  870 votes, and the contest ends May 25th.  I still believe we can get  10,000 votes!  Or at least be ranked in the 25th position, and get a  little money to help kids from starving.  I was wondering if you could  vote... it takes less than 90 seconds.  4 days left... let's do this!

This is for REAL!  Our friend directs CRF.  If you want to talk more about to make sure it isn't a scam, you can e-mail me.  =)

All you have to do is click on this link:   and "like" CHASE on Facebook.  Then click the green Vote & Share  button.  Let's do this and feed 1277 kids for an entire year!  It ends on  the 25th, so there isn't a whole lot of time left.  Thanks so much!  With God we can do this!  =)

Also,  if you would pass this on to all your Facebook friends, this would  spread like wildfire!  There's a TON of people on Facebook... let's get  this going! 

Thanks again!

Find Out What Nail Polish Looks Best With Your Skin

Just thought I'd make a quick tip video! I know a lot of people already know this, but it might help a few people and it was fun to put together. =D

My camera was on auto-focus and it was focused on my shirt and behind me! Sorry about that.... :/

Want more quick tip videos like this one? Let me know in the comments!

I will be getting some designs hopefully soon... we've had some personal things going on in my family right now and it's pretty hard. For now I'm kinda just filling in with videos that are a little easier to make... but I'll try to get nail designs soon.

If you have any other ways to test your skin tone, make sure to leave them below!

A natural nail scrub that's really easy to make and great for cleaning your nails!

Thanks so much for watching!

Valentine's Day Nail Art - Easy Heart Design

 Sorry this is up a few day late - my computer was broken for like 3 days, so that delayed me in getting this up, but it's finally here! I hope this is up early enough for you to do this design in time for V-day!

Plus, I uploaded it on Youtube and noticed the narration was totally gone! So I had to fix the raw video, save it again, and then upload it to Youtube again. Not that hard, but time consuming, especially since I'm already so behind.

This will probably be my last Valentine's Day nail design, at least for this year. =D

This is like a super easy, not tutorial needed design... but... yea. Whatev. Sorry if it seems too simple, but it is Simple Nail Designs, right? ;D

Thanks so much for watching guys!! ♥
