Two Year Blogiversary! And a Giveaway!

Woot Woot! It's my 2 year blogiversary today friends!
Although, I have to say, it doesn't feel like it's been two years at all.
With every passing milestone we're told to reflect and to see how much we've grown.
I think in the last two years my photos have vastly improved - when I look back now at the photos I used in the beginning I tend to cringe. Why oh why did I think using a blurry cellphone camera photo was appropriate? I've also learned a lot about the blogging community as a whole. It's like an entire world nobody understands until they go down the rabbit hole and start a blog. There's great people; there's some crazy talented people; and there's also some crazy whack jobs too. But with all the nonsense that goes on there's still so much support. Thank you to all my loyal followers and to all of you who make this crazy nail art roller coaster so much fun. Couldn't have done it without you. Now let's keep this crazy train going with a mani and a giveaway!!

O.P.I - My Vampire is Buff / Kiss Me on my Tulips / Sprung

Watermarbles are so the key to my heart right now, and this one is no exception.
My boyfriend thought I painted in Sprung after I was done - but no! that's all decal baby.
I ended up freehanding some fleurs too because I broke one of the decals but I still think they're fun.
Let me know what you think!

Now onto the giveaway!

31DC 2014 Gallery

Hey all! So this will be my last post until next week - October 10th.
I'm taking a week off from posting to refill my creative juices and to destress.
When I come back I'll be doing a series of Halloween inspired looks and I'll try to
do some tutorials as well. Oh! And it's my 2 year blogiversary on the 11th so stay tuned for something special. 
I also have a guest post in the works and there's a Thanksgiving mani to do
so October will be a busy month for me! Lots to look forward to.

I wanted to do a comprehensive post on all the looks I did for the 31 day challenge so here it is.

Scofflaw - Chromosaurus Hex

Did you watch the Jurassic Park trilogy as a kid?
I'm pretty sure most people have. 
I was always terrified of the raptors, and every time I watched the scene where that guy
steals the raptor's eggs I would be begging him to leave them. But no, of course he took them.
You need tension and impulsive decisions to create a great plot. I just always wanted to slap him >.< 

Speaking of dinosaurs....
