Green Fingers in Winter?

Although it's winter down here in Australia, I did my nails today for Moment's like Diamonds' Spring nail art contest!
My equipment:
-Some tissues to clean up edges and any little problems
-My almost empty nail polish remover bottle - to remove old polish and other little mistakes
-A small box of misc. deco pieces
-My trusty nail care tool set
-A couple pieces of nail sticker thingies
-My collection of nail polishes
-Some cheap little diamonds to bling up my nails
-And tweezers

I guess that doing my nails was pretty challenging as there were so many tiny pieces such as the little sequins and their tiny dots which i used instead of the fake diamonds which failed on me. It was also very stressful because some of the polish was thick and turned out bumpy when i put it on my nails. It became so thick at times it took forever to dry, which was annoying.

Can you see the birdie and the little bumble bee?
It took me a whole afternoon, which was rather annoying, but at least it didn't fail, right?

The Odd Egg Out

I lied when I said that the tree necklace would be my last piece for these holidays.
Doesn't the pink egg look a bit like the Nemo egg?
Can you tell it's 3 eggs in a nest?
I actually made this one last night in 3 minutes. Literally. (I could have said 5 seconds, but I wouldn't have been able to say literally...) It was super easy, which was very rewarding.
It's a bit larger than my thumb, so it's pretty small, unlike the huge tree necklace from before.

So the concept of this one is based on the good old story of The Ugly Duckling. The 2 white pearl beads are the duckling eggs and the pink one is the goose egg (COZ IT'S SO PRETTY).
I guess the super roundness of the beads make them look un-egg-like, but I really couldn't be bothered to drill holes in my real egg shaped pearls (no, I just don't want purple eggs...)

Here's another little look at a possible Mori Girl Co-ord:
I think this photograph is trying to tell me something.
I think it's trying to tell me that I need to find more tops for Mori me
So, what do you think?
