Update: Auld Lang Syne Sheet Music

You're gonna look at these pictures and think how terrible this polish was. Don't think that. I was not shy about saying how hard it was to work with the base on this but for all that it did last fairly well. I only had a small chip on my second to last day. Then on the very last day one whole polish shell fell off. What is it with me and bad New Years Eve manicures? And looking back at that post, the same darn thing happened to the exact same two nails! Chip on the left pointer, entire right middle finger's polish fell off whole.

What are the chances?

NailNation 3000 Mysterious

Hello, readers! Remember me? I'm Dana, the mostly absent but still caring other half of the Two Girls :) I've been terribly caught up in real life for the last few weeks, and then I had a blissful 11 days of time off work, which coincided nicely with Christmas. I had all these plans to do a bunch of pretty manicures and get a bunch of things organized and come up with a more workable nail polish making arrangement for DLC (the smell of the lacquer really bothers my husband--gives him migraines, in fact--but it's the dead of winter in the Midwest and I can't exactly fling open all the windows in my sun room without killing all the plants and giving myself pneumonia. How do the rest of you wonderful polish makers handle this, I ask!)

Auld Lang Syne Sheet Music Mani

Which, I'm just going to get right out there up front, I don't like. I mean, it's a great idea, I thought it was very creative. My execution was not the best, in my opinion, and that's the one that matters most, right. I'm sporting it anyhow.

My original idea for this was to do a line from We Wish You A Merry Christmas across my nails but I did all of those other Christmas ones and that didn't make it. The line I was going to choose was, "We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" Which would have still made sense for a New Years manicure. Then my sister said you should do Auld Lang Syne.

Which made much more sense.
