Thought I'd pop in just quickly with a mani since I really didn't have a chance to do it over the weekend. It was quite a busy one with the extra dog, the relatives, the other extra dog that came for a playdate and Mother's Day. I always feel like I need a day all alone just to feel normal again.

At any rate, I did do my nails on Sunday night. My original plan was to do a bright pink with black stamping but hated the stamping designs I tried.

After a couple of frustrating fails, I opted for white instead.
Orly Fiesta, Mundo de Unas white, Fab Ur Nails FUN 13 stamp
This very intense pink is Orly Fiesta, stamped with the MdU white and the Fab Ur Nails FUN 13 plate.

Not a whole lot to say about this one. I only left it on for a day because it just didn't make me happy. I can't even give you a reason why, but it simply didn't do it for me.

I also am getting the feeling that my camera might be thinking about dying on me. I'm having more and more problems with lighting and color with it, and that's just making me more and more frustrated.

If I do my blogging from work, I have already put the manicure in a blank post from my home computer. Then when I get to work, I just have to fill in the post. Lately when I've been doing this, once I open it up, my pic seems darker and my hands are a weird shade of not really my skin tone and not even really my "beginning of a tan" skin tone. 

And since I can't save the pic from the draft onto my computer, I can't edit it before I publish. What that means is now I've been publishing the post, saving the pic to this computer, editing the shot and then revising the post by removing the original pic and replacing it with the newly edited version. If that sounds like a pain in the ass, it's because it is. And it still doesn't really fix things as much as I'd like.

I'd love to get a new camera, but I haven't got a clue what I should get. I have absolutely no knowledge of how to work the damn things when I get them, and as some of you are aware, I have been unable to figure out that mother-friggin' lightbox I just had to buy. I also can't really justify anything outrageously expensive just to take pics of hummingbirds and manicures.

I'm kind of needing that ship to come in so if anybody sees it, send it my way. Then I could buy whatever I want!

That would be fun!


  1. I don't have any fancy camera either... I use my phone with my ottlite! haha :) Works for me, as like you, I don't know how to use the fancy stuff! haha And yes... I have no clue what you're talking about with all that draft, edit, revise, edit, post edited version, and post again... or whatever it was you said! haha :) It's all ok..

    1. Just trust me when I tell you it's a royal pain in the ass. Sometimes my phone will do the trick, but sometimes it doesn't. Blah....I hate the photo part of this stuff. LOL

  2. The difference in the pics between your home & work computers could be monitor settings & not the pics at all, especially if your work monitor isn't set up for graphics. My hubs (he's a computer engineer) told me that no matter how careful I am about taking & editing my pics, due to monitor variances, nobody will see exactly what I see on my computer unless they're looking over my shoulder. I told him to shut up & not burst my blogger bubble. LOL So don't stress over it & just do the best you can. :)

  3. Maybe check the google picasa setting and switch off the autocorrect option? In the past I had that damn thing on and it spoiled all the pics on my blog. It's kinda on itself if you use blogger. Once you switched that off you could as well restore the already "corrected" pics.
    You may check the link, and if you treat that as spam - I am ok if you bann my comment ;)
    That's also true about the monitor settings, all are different.
