NOTD: Laced Up

Hi, long time not post! It's report card time and I am very busy at work getting my students' grades into the system. 24 more days of class until summer vacation! Woo!

I was really happy to see that today, right this minute I have 99 followers :D One more until my first giveaway! I have a few more things that I want to pick up for it, so stay tuned until next week for details. On second thought, this may have to wait until after report cards are completely submitted. Oops, I'm getting too anxious here! The giveaway will happen when it happens, how about that ;)

Speaking of giveaways, I was ecstatic to learn that I won my first! I entered Sweet Sugar's 500 follower giveaway last month and won. I will be recieving my first Catrice and Essence polishes, I am very excited :) Thanks Gwenn! Be sure to follow Sweet Sugar if you are not already.

Now onto my NOTD. I finally got around to trying out the Sally Hansen Salon Effects. Here is Laced Up topped with one coat of SV.

I was searching for Laced Up everywhere! It was the only design that I liked enough to pay $9 for. It seemed to always be sold out. I finally found it at Wal Mart of all places, the only one left! There are some minor imperfections in my application, but nothing that was noticable to anyone but me. I got a lot of compliments on the design, and I really do love it. BUT it's too pricey for my liking. I probably will not purchase them again, unless for a much lower price.

If I improve my stamping skills, I think I might me able to mimic Laced Up using some of my Konad and BM plates... fingers crossed because I love this design! Also, what do you think of my apple ring? Very teacher appropriate, no? ;) $12 CAD, from Aldo.

Thanks for reading
