Now onto the photo box! I'm proud to announce I will no longer be posting crappy photos! My amazingly talented boyfriend built this beauty for me:

DIY Light Box
Now she may not be beautiful on the outside, but it's the inside that counts. Please see Exhibit A:
This is the same manicure I posted last night, BUT was taken in my new light box! I mean seriously, what a difference! I couldn't be more happy, not to mention perfect timing because today I got a couple nail mail orders, one from Born Pretty and the other from Hautelook.
This was my first time ever ordering with Born Pretty and I must say I'm very pleased with them! I placed my order on the 21st and it arrived today! The only complaint I would have is that I didn't receive any tracking information, however it could have gone to my spam folder and could totally be my fault. Now back to the order, I got the Lovely Heart Stamp Template- M59, Stamping Stamper with Plastic Scraper (I got a plastic one as the one I ordered with MASH is metal), White and black stamping polish, and 12 stamping plates that came with a stamper and metal scraper. I can't wait to test them out!
For my Hautelook nail mail I ordered a Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit by Gel Haute Polish:
The set came complete with a UV lamp, remover, cleanser, top coat, base coat, and three nail colors, which are all very pretty fall neutrals. I think the first thing I'm going to do with this kit is a Rock Star pedicure!! Oh how I love glitter! In the same shipment from Hautelook came an order I placed a few months back that I have seriously been wanting forever! They are a black pair of amazing boots, and some really cute flats:
I wore the boots the other day and they are so comfortable!
Last night while Alex and I were at Michael's getting supplies to make my light box I was trying to find some craft scissors with the Chevron design that I am soooo in love with right now and found a pair for only $2, I also found some little paint bowls made for mixing paints, but I thought they would be perfect for my acetone and when I'm stamping, it was 2 bowls for $0.99. Can't beat that!
I found these by the entrance for like $3 on clearance and I just couldn't pass them up!
Now if only I could figure out how to get a watermark on my photos.... any suggestions out there?!?
I have to hurry and end this post as we are having a huge storm and are about to lose power!! Wish us luck1
