How YOU doin'?


Just being alive and stuff.

But more specifically, THIS


The ladies over at Lipgloss & Black have an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to make your own decals using just nail polish, toothpicks, and sandwich bags.

Here's one of their (properly lit) examples (click on the picture below or the link above for their post):

I probably should've blotted my face before taking pictures. And also, I'm looking a little "Van Gogh" right now. I have a bigass bandage on my left ear because, after going to the derm for what I thought would some simple cortisone shots, ended up with me having a (apparently very, very dark) mole removed from the inside (THE INSIDE) of my ear. It's the first time I've ever gotten stitches and I'm totallllly unprepared to take care of this.
It's a duckbird.

My other tries. On the right are rain clouds for my left hand (to counter the happy clouds on my rightsie).

On the left: I tried making a doily heart, but I sloppy with my white nail pen. On right: a snake with (unseeable- sorry for the crap pictures) dots of purple and green for detail; an "octopus" but the nail polish started drying too fast (damn fast-dry technology) so it ended up looking like Cthulhu

Any unused decals I have left I plan on sticking to my Ipod/phone/any clean surface because they adhere like those ridiculous gel/plastic cling-y things you put on windows and walls.

ILOVESPOTIFY. I really do. It's allowing me to listen to stupidface Kanye West without having to give him $$ or having him evvver coming after me for illegal downloads. Anyway, Kanye STILL WINS because I canNOT stop listening to this song (from Watch The Throne, which *small aside* at first, I thought had something to do with Game of Thrones. I was confused, like, "why are you telling me to watch 'The Throne' now? I did and it was great. STOP TELLING ME WHAT TO DO KANYYYYE.").
