I often get creative late at night or the wee morning hours. Most think my daily schedule is really weird, but for me it works. For some reason, my energy just flows better at night. I never was a morning person; I actually envy those who can pull themselves out of bed at dawn rearing to go be productive. Sometimes, I am just going to bed at sunrise. Growing up, I think I put my mom through hell with my crabby, anti-morning, adolescent attitude. Haha.
Anyway, most of the dabbling I do in photoshop or with SL photography is done after ten p.m. or later. Last night I also went through some notecards of new releases and such since I haven’t logged in much lately. One store I decided to go to was Exile. There were a number of new demos I had not tried and they were awesome as usual. The style I purchased was called “Valerie”–a sleek and low side ponytail with a little bit of bouffant action going on. My final photo is a bit dark to see the full effect of the style, but you get the idea. Admittedly, I don’t have a lot of hair from Exile. I am not sure why I didn’t frequent this store more in the past, but I am keeping my eyes on the brand now!
Another new release to take note of is the recent line of fingernails by Mandala. This set is a must for dressing up your digits with a fresh manicure! There are a few sets to choose from of varying lengths, as well as a unisex set. Each fingernail can be changed individually, or you can change all of the fingernails at once. You can also choose one of five different nail shapes with the HUD. Plus, there is a huge selection of colors to pick from. See the HUD below.
