HEH!  Yup, I'm still a big dork! lol  I'm giving blogging another go.  I have really missed blogging you guys! It took me a few years to miss it, but it did eventually happen :)  After giving it some thought, I've decided to give this another go 'round.  I had to think long and hard about what I was getting in to again, and try to figure out the reasons why I stopped. Some of those reasons are out of my control (negativity, post/photo stealing to name a few) but others I decided I could change!  I realized blogging became a chore, another JOB that I wasn't really getting paid for. Yes, I would get samples but I came to realize my blog became nothing but sample swatches and that's NOT why I started this blog in the first place.  So I've decided to go back to what makes ME happy and I can forego free nail polish and get back to posting nail art or anything else I darn well please!  That's not to say I won't post swatches but it won't be my main focus and I won't break my back (or nails, lololol) to get a new collection swatched.  So with that said, I'm going to ease back in to things. 

Some things have changed though - for those of you that are my friends on facebook you already know most of this.  Anyway, I just recently had a baby, she is 17 1/2 months old.  I love her dearly, expect to see pictures of her, like ALOT of pictures of her :)  But with that, I don't get to paint my nails like I used to, so I really don't know how often I will be able to do posts.  I've been painting my nails after she sleeps at night but I don't always get to do it, so the frequency of posts are up in the air right now.  I also got my twitter back up and going again and have started Instagram, so there are even more ways to find out whats up with Getcha Nails Did.  My facebook is my personal page and I might end up changing that with time, but it's baby steps at this point.

I wanna say THANK YOU to all of you gals who were so positive and had such nice words of encouragement when I posted that I was thinking of coming back.  You ladies are literally THE reason that I decided to come back.  So thank you so much for that.

Ok, well now that's out of the way, let's talk nails!  I forgot to get nail polish names (first day back and I'm already screwing it up!) but it's all about the jewels on this mani anyway.  I got the big jewels from a flea market here in the city, but I'm sure you could find something similar near you or on the internet.  I remember scouring the internet for nail art stuff like this and couldn't find it, like couldn't find ANYTHING, and now, just a few years later and it's so much more readily available.  I surrounded my big jewel with lots of little pink jewels to give it a more finished look.  Then for fun I added some heart jewels to my thumbs and surrounded them with little pearls.
