After (kind-of) stopping the awful habit of biting my nails, the only way to keep my nails growing is by painting them! The very first nail polish I used on my new, more lengthy nails was OPI. In '"Sheer" Your Toys', to be exact. Now, about six months later, I'm hooked. Although kind of pricey, their still worth it, if you ask me. Usually a bottle will put you back about $8. However, sometimes you find things when you're not looking for them. Last night, my mom and I were walking around Bed Bath & Beyond when we came across the clearance section. (our favorite :P) What else did we find but... OPI! Woohoo! And only 3.99! So now I'm wearing 'Lincoln Park at Midnight and, although I don't usually go for dark colors, I do love this dark purple. My summer favorite, though, 'Let them Eat Rice Cake' because it looks great with my tan! Check eBay too; you can always find good OPI bargains there.

Despite the cost, between my mom and I, we've acquired about ten different bottles:

-"Sheer" Your Toys

-Lincoln Park at Midnight

-Breathe Life

-It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's OPI

-Pillow Talk

-My Kind of Brown

-Nantucket Mist

-You're Such a Kabuki Queen

-25 Colorful Years

-Let Them Eat Rice Cake

What's your favorite OPI color? Comment!

GLEEk tour

For my first fuzziest post flying solo (just lizzie, no mom) I have to talk about the best up-coming fall show, GLEE and their mall tour!  When the pilot aired on FOX on 5/19/09, there was no doubt in my mind that this show wasn't going to be amazing.  Now, as the show gets closer and closer to it's season premiere on 9/9/09 (good luck, right?) gleeks nation-wide are getting so excited!  To make it even better, the cast has been touring malls hitting Hot-Topics since Monday with a meet & greet and Q&A session.  After waiting in line for three hours, the moment had come when we could finally meet the cast.  And it was totally worth the wait!  The eight cast members signing there were Finn, Rachel, Artie, Mercedes, Kurt, Tina, Quinn, and Puck (sadly no Schuester) and everyone was soooooo nice.  Being that I attended the King of Prussia stop, the fact that Cory Monteith (Finn) tweeted "Just got to DC! You guys better bring it, cause King of Prussia brought it pretty hard..." was beyond exciting!  To anyone who attended already; share you thoughts and pictures.  To anyone who hasn't gone, but is; get ready- it's amazing.  To anyone who couldn't make it; that stinks cause it was awesome!

Grrrr...tiger nails!

New obsession alert! Watching nail polish tutorials on Youtube.
Have you seen these girls? Man, they're good! (Most of them, anyway.) They can do just about anything on nails. Here's my attempt at painting tiger stripes on Lizzie's nails. What do you think? Have you tried any nail art lately? Let us know! We'll post pix!
