Breaking News: Heath Ledger Found Dead

 CNN reports, The New York Police Department declared Heath Ledger, 28,  dead on arrival on Saturday, January 22, 2008 at 3:30 pm in his lower Manhattan, New York apartment.  Police spokesperson, Paul Browne, said Ledger's housekeeper tried to wake him up for a masseuse appointment, and he was unresponsive.  The Masseuse, Diana Lee Wolozin, speed dialed Mary Kate Olsen three times on Heath's phone before she called 911 and another time after she called 911.  Wolozin currently does not have a state license to practice massage therapy. Their was a 26 minute delay before an ambulance was dispatched?  Could that 26 minutes could of saved his life?  Reportedly, Mary Kate and Ledger were socially dating.

Paul Browne says, possible drug overdose but, nothing has been declared.  Six prescription medications and over the counter sleeping pills were found in the Vincinity of his bed Browne later said.  The prescription pills were half full, in closed bottles.  In most cases, drug overdoses are usually found with empty, tops off, prescripton bottles.  An Autopsy for the tragic death of, Heath Ledger, was scheduled for Wednesday, but came back inconclusive.  We may not find out any information for a couple of weeks.

Photographers, onlookers, and reporters surrounded outside of Ledger's apartment when the news broke about this death, Browne said.  This just makes me sick! 

Heath Ledger, 28, was born in Perth, Austriaila.  Ledger was recently known for his 2005 role in Brokeback Mountain, were he played a gay cowboy who had a secret relationship.  He was also nominated that year for a Academy Award.  He has a 2 year old daughter, Maltilda, with actress, Michelle Williams, whom he met on the set of Brokeback Mountain.  She was currently in Sweden filming when the news broke.  She immediately flew home, where the paparazzi surrounded the airport waiting for her to arrive.

This breaking news is so sad.  Best wishes to his family and friends.  I really hope the paparazzi respects his family and friends by giving them privacy, but, you know that wont happen.  R.I.P.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
