What Do You Think of My New Masthead?

I have been so busy lately between work, personal life, "my big announcement", this blog. Ugh! There is barely time to sleep! I am an 8 hours a night of sleep kind of girl and I have been eeking out about 6 hours. I guess that is better than what it could be. Sometimes I actually feel like a bit of a failure for not doing more or staying up just a bit later. Most of the work right now is on a computer and it really just tires me out. But then something like this happens, I figure out how to use a photo software to create a logo/masthead and I get a bit more invigorated. My new masthead isn't done yet, but I am impatient and couldn't wait to put it out there, so here is stage one. I have a few more things I want to do with it. My problem now is trying to figure out how to make this an HTML code so that I can use the code when entering it. Maybe when I have another 2 hours I will work on that end. But so far what do you think of the progress? 


On the nail side of things, I went to Sally's last night because I ran out of polish remover.  My local Sally's never get's any new collections in, so imagine how surprised I was to see the China Glaze Vintage Vixen collection. Not only did they have several of each color, All the China Glaze Polishes were on sale for $4.99 and buy 2 get 1 free. That means each polish came to $3.33 each. Not to shabby when they are normally $6.99 at Sally's. So if you have a Sally's near you, go check them out and grab yourself some China Glaze Polishes at a great price. I was pretty good, I only grabbed three. Of course that means I am left contemplating going and grabbing some others, but I am trying to be good, so no encouragement there please. 


Tuesday night I put on Ingrid. I really liked this one in the bottle. It is a dark taupe/brown with gold shimmer throughout it. It seems this is a big thing in polishes for Fall. But when I put this one on, I was not so impressed. I am still wearing it. It is weird I like it and I don't all at the same time. I just don't think this one works well with my tan/olive skin tone. It looks a little poopy on me. I think this one would probably look amazing on someone with fair skin, but it just isn't for me.




 
Gorgeous isn't it? It looks so pretty with all that shimmer. It looks lighter outside too. This is why I haven't taken it off yet. It keeps distracting me when I am outside. Below is a picture in the shade. You can still see some shimmer, but it is a bit darker looking. Inside I can't even see the shimmer and I lose all my desire to keep this one on.  Formula wise it was great though. It applied smoothly and only needed two coats for complete coverage. I think that not every color is for every person and this one just isn't my shade, but it's still a beautiful color. 


I wanted to throw in an extra photo today. This was taken from the car when we were driving through Savannah, GA on our way home on Sunday. It was absolutely breathtaking. I wanted to share that breathtaking view with all of you. Isn't it amazing?

  4. @ Alexa - No Sally's? That is too bad!
    @Kelligonzo Thanks - the masthead is a tattoo loosely based on me that Juan has. The artist is going to start working on some others for me. Can't wait!
    @Jackie S - Thanks! I want to put some borders and resize the masthead, but that will have to wait a bit longer.
    @Clau - thanks!
    @jbrobeck - Thanks! Me too!

  5. GAH!! I'm going to check out my Sally's and of course they're gonna have the collection because I'm on a no-buy for a while. *sigh* I agree with you - there's never enough time in the day!
