A Rolling Stone

Why i push myself to come up with weird titles for my posts is beyond me, I did decide I want this blog to be for me as long as I'm happy all should be good. I guess what I'm getting at is i know my photographs aren't the best, I just wanna say sorry and you'll will have to bear with me till i buy a camera i use my mobile to click pictures and it doesn't even have flash. Its only 3 megapixel and not the best focus I'm cribbing because i saw all these other beautiful pictures in the Inlinkz to the challenges I'm doing and mine aren't that great. 

Okay, now that I've totally made this a sob story I'm going to move on to my post which is the second era for the Inspired By a Time Period Challenge by Llama Nails.The time period is Stone Age!! 



So I started off with VOV Got a Pretty in Thailand which i absolutely love. I couldn't think of a better name for it if i tried its like an elephant grey and is a one coater.



 pardon my cuticles and everything around them~

i couldn't resist sneaking another one in

Then i sponged Avon Grey Cement from the matte range and VOV Blackberry which is basically a thick black polish i use to stamp. I used a regular sponge which i got as packaging when i ordered some Image Plates *economical i know* and just randomly dabbed. The end result looked like stone, which shows i took the challenge quite literally. Here is the end result! 

Quite messy!


 look a messy thumb


I cleaned up! and then figured I'd add a Matte top coat instead of my trusty Colorlife. So out came Essie Matte About You which i treasure like its liquid gold. And i loved the effect. 









i even managed to tidy my fingers up a bit


Ta-da!! I love it do you?? Let me know and if any of you have tips on how to make my 3 MP Camera work other than standing under light I'd appreciate it. 


Loads of  love,










Don't forget to go see what all the other lovely ladies did! :)
