April Polishes

Hey everyone! I’m feeling way better (I’m myself again, yay!), but finals are coming up, so I’m still going to be taking a break until I’m home around May 12(ish). I miss blogging though, and will be back when I can! I can’t believe that this month is already over (well, almost, but still). I have a week left of this semester and then in August, I’ll be starting my last year of college, it’s crazy how time flies. May will be interesting I think. On the 4th of May, I think I’m going to be going to the Pride of Arizona “Mini-Camp,” I want to go, but I’m not sure my shoulder will like me for it (more information about that below). My boyfriend and I will be driving to LA (where he’s from) on May 9th, and I’ll be staying there until I fly home on the 11th. Then I’ll get to see my dogs (I’ve been having serious dog withdrawals, haha)! And then on the 13th of May, I’m going to an orthopedic doctor for the first time to get my shoulder looked at; I’ve been to the regular doctor and the Emergency Room for it, but they can’t tell me what’s wrong with it and no pain medication they give me has helped (that makes marching super fun). I haven’t done anything to it (like fallen on it or been in an accident), it just started hurting during band camp my sophomore year of college (and it’s annoying, I play the piccolo, the smallest instrument and my shoulder is messed up); it feels like someone is sticking their hand underneath my shoulder blade, so hopefully this doctor can figure it out. And then on May 20th, I have Jury Duty (again); I had it two years ago in May, luckily I wasn’t picked, so  hopefully this time it will be the same. Hopefully I’ll get a job this summer, and if I can’t get a “real” job, hopefully I can get a job as a nanny. And if that doesn’t happen, I’ll continue to volunteer at the animal shelter.

I got 8 polishes this month:

  • China Glaze – Shower Together
  • OPI Matte Nail Envy
  • China Glaze Holographic – Cosmic Dust
  • Orly In A Snap
  • OPI – Can’t Find My Czechbook (full size)
  • Claire’s – Pink Glow in the Dark
  • Claire’s – Sun Changing (Grey/Red)
  • China Glaze Texture – Itty, Bitty & Gritty

The polishes I ordered this month, but don’t have yet because they’re getting sent to my house in Elk Grove.

  • Lucky 13 Lacquer – Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights?
  • Zoya – Chyna
  • Zoya – Arizona
  • Zoya – Reagan
  • Zoya – Sarah
  • Zoya – Avery
  • Zoya – FeiFei
  • Zoya – Charla


Well, that’s it from me for a while. I hope you all have a great day/week! If you have finals, good luck! Thank everyone!


Just so you know…

Hey everyone! I haven’t really been feeling like myself lately, the end of the semester is coming and I think I’m homesick (for the first time in college) and I haven’t really been having good luck with my nails the past couple days. So I’m going to be taking a break from blogging. I’m not sure how long I will be gone for and I may post spontaneously until I’m back for sure, but I just wanted to let you all know that I’m not abandoning my blog. I’ll be at home the evening of May 11, so hopefully I’ll be posting regularly again the week of May 12. Also, WordPress is still behaving so I’ll be staying here (will not be moving to blogger/blogspot).  Thank you all for your support, I appreciate all my followers. Here’s some pictures haha.

Ok, another Update!

So, WordPress has been acting fine since earlier today, so I think I’ll be staying here (yay! I did not like blogger at all, it sucked). I’ll still keep the blogger blog as a backup in case something happens to this one again, but it will be private so only I can see it unless I have to go back to that blog. Hopefully everything stays good with WordPress now. I’ve installed two-step verification to my blog, so hopefully that will help. Thanks everyone!

UPDATE to my blog!!!

My WordPress account is acting very very strange. I think I might have been attacked by that bot thing that is going around. Because of this, I’m changing to a blogspot account. My new blog address will be Please follow me there instead, I don’t think I will be updating this account anymore and will be deleting it on April 28, 2013. Thanks!

Striping Tape Mani

Hey everyone! I hope you had a good week. Mine was ok, nothing really stands out as exceptionally good or bad. I have a mock job talk at 1:00 today, so I’m kind of nervous for that, but it’s only a 5 minute presentation with 2 minutes for questions, so hopefully it won’t be too bad. I really need to find a nude polish, I have to go naked today haha. I’m doing Relay for Life tonight (well, tomorrow morning, technically), so I’ll probably paint my nails before then, so there might be a post tomorrow or Monday depending on how things go.

For today’s nails (that aren’t on anymore, haha) I started with a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy. I then applied two coats of OPI – Can’t Find My Czechbook. I let that dry and then applied three pieces of striping tape diagonally (you can see in the picture) and topped that with China Glaze – Shower Together and removed the striping tape. I topped that with two coats of Orly In a Snap. That’s it for today!

Purple Polka Dots

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well. Mine is going good so far, I found out that I got a 95% on a test in a class that I haven’t been doing that well in, so I’m really happy about that. The end of the semester is in sight! I have a “mock job talk” on Friday, a paper due next Tuesday, online homework assignments due on Monday,  online homework assignments due in another class on Friday, an online discussion post due Friday, an exam on Monday, and then finals (if anyone is/knows a social worker and is willing to be interviewed by me for one of my finals, I would really appreciate it!). It doesn’t seem that bad, compared to the work I had from the beginning of the semester. I’m also going to be returning my marching uniform on Thursday and getting fitted for our brand new uniforms for next year! (I’m really excited, my last year in the POA and we’re going to get new, custom fitted uniforms!). Sorry for the super short post on Monday, for some reason I was in a really weird, negative mood. But, I’m better now 🙂

For today’s nails, I started with a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy as a base coat. I then applied three coats of OPI – You’re Such a BudaPest. I then used a dotting tool to make dots with Pure Ice – Cheatin’ (they didn’t really work out that well though, because Cheatin’ is a glitter polish so it didn’t dot very well, but the intention is there, haha). I topped it with a coat of Orly – In a Snap top coat. That’s it from me, I’ll be back Friday! Have a good day!

China Glaze Holographic – Cosmic Dust

Hello 🙂 My weekend was ok, I didn’t end up going to the animal rescue to volunteer because the woman who runs the rescue cancelled on us 2 hours before we were supposed to be there, which was a major bummer. So after that, I really missed my dogs a lot, I can’t wait until summer. Sunday, I didn’t really do anything but work on my homework. This post will be really short, because I’m not really in that great of a mood and I’m tired.

I started with two coats of OPI Matte Nail Envy. I then applied three coats of China Glaze Holographic – Cosmic Dust. I topped it with a coat of Orly – In a Snap Top Coat. (I did these last Sunday, and I didn’t know they were going on my blog [I didn’t have time to paint my nails this weekend], so sorry they’re not the best pictures)
