A quick hello and a dodgy franken!

Hello everyone!

Sorry it's been a few days since my last post. I've had a few dramas and just haven't had a chance to do a decent nail job!
I tend to be away from the computer at weekends anyway as my boyfriend and I have a no internet rule for the evenings and weekends. I usually end up going on when he goes to sleep as my sleeping pattern is quite different to his!

My biggest drama has been my cat being poorly :( Not the kitten Barnaby but our cat Bobo. She was ill at the weekend and then I took her to the vets first thing this morning and they've kept her over night. I cried my eyes out. She should be coming home tomorrow. I really hope so, I HATE being without her.

So I didn't do much with my nails over the weekend but I did attempt a franken yesterday which didn't really go to plan.... I wasn't even going to bother showing you guys but it's all I have to show you at the moment! So I will share my fail with you all :)

This is BarryM silver and a bourjois pale blue pigment. I really like the colour and it was exactly what I wanted but it's so lumpy!! Even from a distance you can see it! I think it's the bourjois pigment that's the problem, the chunks were too big....

I put a top coat on and then a glitter top coat as well. It improved it but still not great.

Then I decided to put a konad over it to see if that helped and also just to get some practise!

I think it looks a bit better but I will still be removing it fairly soon!

So that was my franken fail. I will use a better pigment next time and see if I have more success!

Here are a couple more Barnaby pics for those kitten lovers out there :) I just can't help myself!

Watching the cricket....

That's it for today. I will be redoing my nails tomorrow so will post again soon!
Everyone keep their fingers crossed that Bobo can come home tomorrow!!

I am so sorry to hear about Bobo - I am definitely thinking good things for her! I do like the colour of the franken though. Very pretty! And I love Barnaby - what a little cutie pie! <3

I'm sorry Bobo got sick, hope she comes home tomorrow all better.
Your franken is very pretty! Barnaby looks like there was lots of fun to be had!

I hope Bobo is doing well and is at home now. I love the color of your franken. You really can't tell that it's bumpy. Really pretty Konadicure. Barnaby is growing fast and he's cute.

Hope Bobo comes home. I know how it feels to be without your pet for a while. Not fun. :(
I think your franken looks great! Much better than my attempts! :)
