Q: How Many Shots Does It Take?

A: A lot.

Although I read a lot of blogs I never realized how many f*cking pictures you have to take to get enough good ones (yes, I post the good ones) to write a blog.  This post is to show you, my valued readers, the horrifying things I have to look at when prepping a post.

To get things started, the color of the week is Ulta‘s “Mint Condition”.

I usually have to take a billion pictures when I’m trying to get ready for a post about my polish color because it’s difficult to get a good picture of nail color…well, one that isn’t just boring nails.  Also please forgive me for my lack of makeup and tired hair, it was Sunday night, and I really didn’t give a sh!t.

Photo #1:A little scary if you ask me and the nails are kind of difficult to see. 

Photo #2:I think this one is one of the best.  You can see the nails and I’m kind of smiling in a not-smiling kind of way. 

Photo #3:Apparently I forgot I was taking pictures so I don’t think I was looking. 

Photo #4:Still not looking at the camera…idiot. 

Photo #5:This one is okay, but my eyes look like one is more open than the other…maybe I’m deep in thought.  Probably thinking about Red Robin french fries.

Photo #6:I don’t know what this is all about…my eyes look pretty wonky. 

Photo #7:Again, a little weird, you can see my forehead begging for botox and my hair is doing I-don’t-know-what.  Photo #8:If I only posted one picture, this would be it. You can see my nails, my eyes look more even and my hair is decent.  Please keep in mind that I deleted the really horrible ones where I looked like Edward’s sister in Twilight, but I have to draw the line somewhere.  Sorry.

    The first pic looks like you are smelling your fingers. Just sayin.

  2. This is hilarious because I have not yet mastered the “taking a picture of myself for the blog” thing either. I am terrible at taking pictures of myself without looking like I’m trying too hard. And I’m oftentimes like “umm, is that really what I look like??” Yeech! But sometimes you just have to say “screw it” and post the not so flattering ones. (hence the scary pictures on my blog) 🙂
