China Glaze – What a Pansy

Hey everyone! I’m really sorry for my super irregular posting schedule (work, life, and my dog have kind of taken precedence over blogging and nails). I’m trying to get back into doing my nails, but I get busy haha. I promise that if I ever decide to stop blogging, then I’ll let everyone know. Life is going pretty good overall, I’m loving my apartment and my dog. It’s really nice having a living thing to come home to. My job is going well also, no major complaints so far.

Today’s nails are China Glaze – What a Pansy. I started with a coat of Orly Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – What a Pansy. I then topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. Thanks for reading, have a great day!

China Glaze – Thistle Do Nicely

Hey everyone! Long time no post (opps). I didn’t mean to stop posting, but I got a dog and spending time with her has cut into my time for nails/blogging. She’s a 4 year old Chihuahua I named Sophie (her name was Echo, but I didn’t think that fit her). I got her off Craigslist (we met in a public place) on the 4th of July. She’s adjusting pretty well – when I first got her she had really bad separation anxiety (she still has it to an extent, but is getting better) and she wouldn’t eat much for almost a week (but then I figured out that she didn’t like the bowl her food was in). It’s really nice having a living thing to come home to after work 🙂 Here’s some pictures of her:

Today’s nails are a swatch of China Glaze – Thistle Do Nicely. I did these a while ago, but I’m just getting around to posting them because life got in the way haha. I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – Thistle Do Nicely. I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. That’s it for me today, thanks for reading! 🙂 Have a great day!

China Glaze – Grass is Lime Greener

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Mine is going well, today is my Friday (yay!). My apartment is feeling like home and I love living alone – the only messes in the apartment are mine and I have no one to blame but myself haha. Nothing else has really changed too much since my last post, I’m still trying to ease back into posting somewhat regularly. For now I haven’t really made time for nail art, but I’m slowly making time to actually paint my nails.

Today’s nails are a swatch of China Glaze – Grass is Lime Greener. I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – Grass is Lime Greener. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. Thanks for reading, have a great rest of your week and weekend (and a fun and safe 4th of July if you celebrate!).

China Glaze – At Vase Value

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry that I took another week off! The week before last I was getting ready to move and then that weekend I actually moved into my apartment! So I was completely busy that weekend and then last week I wasn’t completely unpacked so I couldn’t post anything or paint my nails. On Saturday and yesterday I was finishing unpacking and organizing my apartment. It feels like home now! I’ll try (for real this time) to post at least once a week and ideally twice a week. It may take a bit for me to get back into the swing of things again, but I’ll actually try this time. Although my nails and cuticles are in pretty bad shape right now so I’ll be posting some swatches that I hadn’t posted until my nails/cuticles are better.

Today’s nails are a swatch of China Glaze – At Vase Value from almost a month ago. I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – At Vase Value. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat. That’s it for today, thanks for reading! Have a great day!

China Glaze – Angel’s Breath

Hey everyone! I hope you had a good weekend! Mine was pretty good, I turned in my first month’s rent and security deposit for my apartment on Saturday and got some boxes and started packing. I can move in on Tuesday, but I’ll probably just do the walkthrough then and officially move in during the weekend when my parents are here (my furniture gets delivered on Saturday and we’ll probably rent a U-Haul or something on Sunday and move the rest of my stuff in). I’m really excited, it will be the first time I’ll be living completely on my own! I mean I’ve lived away from my parents and family for the past four years, but I’ve had roommates, in the apartment I’ll be the only one living there (until I get a dog that is haha). You also may have noticed that I changed my blog name (I decided I didn’t want to use my initials anymore haha).

I’m taking a brief break from my Disney princess nails (I don’t really have time for nail art right now), so prepare for a  bunch of swatch posts. I’ll probably have time eventually, but right now I don’t haha. So for today’s nails I have a swatch of China Glaze – Angel’s Breath. I first applied a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – Angel’s Breath. I then applied a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat.  Thanks for reading, have a great day!

OPI – Can’t Find My Czechbook and Lucky 13 Lacquer – Always

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great week! Mine was pretty good! I can’t believe it’s already May! This semester went by so quickly; I can’t believe I graduate in 15 days! It’s crazy how fast the past four years have gone by. I only have two days of class left (and some online work) and then I’m done with my undergraduate career. It’s scary to think about, but also exciting!

Today’s nails are another simple swatch (not feeling particularly creative at the moment haha). I started with a coat of Orly – Nail Defense. I then applied two coats of OPI – Can’t Find My Czechbook. Once that dried, I applied two coats of Lucky 13 LacquerAlways. I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend!

Wet n Wild – Black Crème

Hey everyone! I hope you had a good week last week and start of this week. I finished both my papers and homework that I had last week (yay!). Almost done with the semester! I had a stressful/exciting weekend last weekend (more to come on that in the future!). I don’t have anything exciting to share from last week (my papers completely dominated my week haha).

So I had an idea for a theme and I’ll start that sometime soon-ish haha, but I just wanted to get some nails done, so I have a quick swatch of Wet n Wild – Black Crème. I applied a coat of Orly – Nail Defense, then three coats of Wet n Wild – Black Crème (I could have used two coats, but I filed my nails after the second coat and had to add a third coat), topped with a coat of Seche Vite – Dry Fast top coat. I’ve rounded my nails because they kept breaking when they were square (I have to work on the shape a bit). Thanks for reading, have a great day!
