NOTD: 30 January 2012

Crawling out of my hole to get some blogging done.  I've mentioned it before, but I have rheumatoid arthritis (psoriasis) and just recently had to go off my medication because I can't afford it anymore.  This is the first time in a year and a half to be off it and I've been in pain and lethargic.  We've also had nothing but icky rain and clouds lately which aren't the best photo scenario.  This NOTD was from 7 January, but I'm just now writing about it.  Ugh.

I have been wanting to play with my new NCLA polishes since they came in, and decided that Miss Sunset Strip needed to be on my nails now.  I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, then China Glaze Harmony from the Romantique collection, next my Miss Sunset Strip and topped it all with CND Air Dry.

 I know it's a bit hard to see the awesomeness that's going on, but don't worry - I'll have individual reviews of each color coming soon (probably by the end of the week?) so you can see what's what.

I love all the pretty holographic and purple glitter from Miss Sunset Strip and then the beautiful purple base from Harmony.  I'm just mostly a purple fanatic all the way around.

Indoors with the flash, and this doesn't do much justice.  It almost looks like my polish is wrinkling, but I promise it's not.  Love this combination - would definitely wear it again!

    1. Originally I was told that the drug company wouldn't help you unless you didn't have health insurance, but oddly I got a phone call from this yesterday afternoon saying that they will provide some aid, and are sending me an application! ^_^

    1. Thanks Heather! I'm on my 9th year of this... it sucks! I was taking Remicade... they will provide the drug to you if you don't have insurance - but you still have to pay hospital administration costs. It's an IV every 6 weeks, but it sure helped.
