Hello! How Are You All Doing?

(Warning this post is somehow heavy in exclamation points!)

I hope you are doing great and all is going according to plan. I have good news to share--I have taken on the Fall Into Autumn Challenge!!! Special thanks to those allowing me to participate!!! I feel giddy like a school-girl!

Speaking of school, tomorrow is my first day back. I am currently majoring in Graphic Design, and this semester I signed up for a painting and sculpture class. I can only afford to attend part-time, which sucks, because I'd really love to get my BFA sometime before I'm old! As of now my hearts just not into it;  I feel less like a student and more like a profit.  I hate it. I hate how they cut federal funding to students that need it most.  

I could go on and on (and on) about how I feel but I won't. And while I'm very uncertain about how the  future will play out, luckily there are somethings I can always count on to get me through, like polish!

So On To It!

Back 2 School half-moon mani complete with chalkboard (thumb) crayon, loose-leaf, paper , pencil, and eraser :)

This was my first attempt at a half-moon mani using reinforcements. The half moons look more dramatic in real life than they do in the photo (why u lie camera?!).  When I first started doing this mani for the FIA challenge I thought it would be a lot easier to come up with an idea  for B2S but it's much harder than it looks! So I decided to keep it simple and "fall back" on some must have essentials. (no pun intended :p)

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear brand in Blasck OutCeleb City, Fushia Power, Bubblegum Pink, and Lacey Lilac, I also used Sinful Colors Professional brand in Snow Me White, Pull Over, and Verbena.  Kleancolor brand in Pastel Blue and Green Grass was also used. China Glaze's Matte's Magic was finally used to give a matte effect for the chalkboard, paper,  and erasers.

I hope you enjoyed this back to school mani!

Stay tuned for more Fall Into Autumn Challenge posts!
