but we're never gonna survive unless we are a little crazy...

I've been MIA this week and I apologize for that! Life takes its toll on you and you lose track of your daily routine. I've been pretty busy as of late and I find myself wanting to do nothing more than just sleep. Unfortunately it never works out like that for me. I got inducted into an honors society on Friday and had an awesome dinner with my family, boyfriend and best friend. I'm pretty blessed when it comes to the support system I have. The mani I'm showing you today is the one I wore to that event. 

Unfortunately right now I'm sporting naked nails. To you ladies who swatch multiple times a day (or at least it seems like that), props to you. I work two jobs, babysit, tutor, and go to school full time and try to do my nails every day but it's so hard. Ahhhhh. I went to a concert last night: 


Alanis Morissette, YES she was awesome! Not quite what I was expecting. Her opening act was a rapper, who we found out was her... husband? Uh. Yup. His stage name is Souleye, look for his stuff on Youtube! He sort of reminds me of Channing Tatum. I think he's cute. The two are adorbs together. 

Alright, back on topic.. here is the mani I am showing you today!

For my base, I used three coats of Zoya Ivanka. I sponged on top of Ivanka with China Glaze Optical Illusion, from the Prismatics Collection. Ivanka is as gorgeous as in pictures, but I didn't like how sheer it was. I thought it would build up better and be almost opaque in one or two coats, but it took three. Not a huge deal, and worth it for the beautiful shade, but I thought I'd throw that in there. Optical Illusion is yet another gorgeous Prismatic. I wasn't sure how I'd wear this one because it's green and not as versatile as the others (fun fact: green is my favorite color but I more or less hate green polish. Hmph.). 
I like this look I came up with, and I got a lot of compliments on it. It gave me something to stare at while I was sitting on stage during the BORING awards ceremony last Friday, that's for sure!

What do you think?
