Annnnnd we're back! :D

HELLO YOU GAIIISSSS :D

I missed you! I am finally in my new home, in a new country, on another continent, in another hemisphere. Crazy, right?

Packing up all my nail polishes was quite a challenge. I didn't count, because I don't really want to know >.< but I estimate I have something like ~800 polishes. It took me around 10 hours to pack them all up, individually wrapping each bottle lovingly in bubble wrap and using masking tape or clear tape to hold it together. My efforts paid off, though--I only found one bottle broken when I opened the suitcase (which weighed over 60lbs or 27kg, btw), and it was INM Northern Lights, of which I have several backups. So it could have been a lot worse. I now have a sparkly patch on the inside of my suitcase, but that's okay, because sparkles are awesome.

I took one photo of my suitcase... this doesn't show how deep the bag is, nor the few polishes I've already unwrapped, but you get the idea...

The shopping bag in the top right corner has even more bottles that wouldn't quite fit in this bag. I had to separate some in order to meet the weight requirements at the airport. It was during this packing process that I truly realised... I have a problem! But, having just moved to a new country with new shops and new brands to check out, I don't think it's going to be solved any time soon. :D

Anyway, that's me done for the moment, just wanted to pop in and let you know I'm still alive, and so is my prized collection! I have a couple of manicures to show you from before Christmas that didn't make it onto the blog before due to time constraints, and by then I should have my workspace set up here so I can start creating new designs again. I've really missed it. The three middle nails on my right hand snapped off during all the craziness, but my left hand is still intact, so I'll be able to take good photos for you! :)

See you soon! xoxo
