52 Week Challenge: Need Marble Mani

I was doing so good for so long.

Now I'm weeks... scratch that, months behind on the challenge. Will I be able to catch up before December 31st?! Will my nails ever regrow?! Will I have enough polish to finish the job?! Will I look like a complete fool walking around with Easter nails in the middle of the Summer?! (Likely, hah) Stay tuned to find out...

For my first new post back from hiatus, I decided to try to catch up on the 52 Week Challenge. When I saw that this week's challenge was a needle marble..well let's just say I was less than thrilled. I've never tried it before but marbling in general was never my favorite. I do have to say it was a quick and pretty easy mani to do, and I suppose for that reason a good one to start with. 

Quick and dirty! I didn't clean up, properly file nails, or car about my horribly dry cuticles. Some may call it being lazy, I'll call it being"edgy". hah I promise next time I'll be better.

I was pretty pissed that right after I finished this mani, I saw this amazing one. I really don't feel like doing my nails all over again though. Plus my nails are far too short for any kind of french design right now anyway. *sigh* As you can see my index finger is shot. It split and cracked a few days ago and made me sad.

Worst. Blogger. Ever.

I could possibly be the worst blogger ever. hah I'm going to try to post again soon, but right now my nails are chipped, broken, and cracked(oh and dyed pink from dying my hair hah). I think I have some old posts that maybe I'll show you guys.
Sorry for being MIA for so damn long. Life has seriously been crazy.
<3 you guys!
