THIS IS SPECTAC - I'VE OUTDONE MA'SELF

Finally heard from the hospital this morning. They did the usual run through with me, "do you have this", "have you ever had that", "what medications do you take", and on and on and on.

Once we finished up with that always boring bit of business, she told me to be at the hospital at 2 p.m. That's right, 2 p.m. At first I was really happy about it because I honestly thought they would make me be there at 6 or 7, which would have suuuccckkkkeeeed.

After thinking about it, now I'm not quite as happy because it means I won't even get home until at least 10 p.m. For some unknown reason that really chaps my ass. Oh, well. I just want it over with.

I considered saving this one for some other time, but I just can't do it. I'm too in love with it to not share. And you even get a half-assed tutorial with it! How lucky are you all feeling right about now?

TA-DA!! Here's what I ended up with!

And here's just a shot of it all by itself in its full-size glory. Hot damn, this is one fantabulous mani!!

The glitter polish base is two coats of Studio M Magic Attraction. It is a really pretty glitter, one of my favorites. I just used Sally Hansen black on top of the striping tape.

I actually copied the design off of a Konad plate that I love and had to have specifically for this pattern. And like everything else on my Konad plates, the design is way too tiny for my nails. So yeah, I'm loving this.

Oh, for cripes sake. I'm in the middle of typing this and just got an email that this is already up on the Nail It magazine webpage. Sheesh. That kind of takes the fun out of putting it here. 

Nail It has told me to submit any tutorials I do from now on. After I finished this one up on Saturday night, I emailed it to my contact person.  She didn't waste any time using it.

Can't say I blame her; it's friggin' gorg. IMHO, of course.
