Freehand Flowers and Storm

Good morning, dear readers! :D

I have another flower mani for you today:

For this manicure I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Grey Area as a base, and acrylic paint for the design.  :D

We got a wicked storm yesterday!!!  The temperature was 35 degrees Celcius in the shade, and then by the end of the storm it had dropped to 18 degrees Celcius!!  We had hail and crazy winds and a downpour, accompanied by lots of lightening and thunder.  Here are some photos:

The first photo is the hail I collected.  The second photo is my neighbours front yard, where their large tree came down on their truck!!  The last photo is of our post and the random branches and junk that got sent flying around.

That was one intense storm!!! O_O

I hope that everyone stays safe and has a wonderful day! 



  1. Gorgeous manicure. Can't believe how big the hailstones you collected were!

  2. The flowers look incredible!
    omg that was a crazy storm! I'm glad you're ok!

  3. this made me go..."woah" beautiful

  4. Wow, we've been getting hit with a barrage of storms (not overly common for this part of B.C.) this summer but nothing that caused anywhere that kind of damage. Thank goodness no one was hurt when that tree hit your neighbour's vehicle.
