China Glaze – Frostbite (and July polishes)

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week so far! On Monday, I took my 12 year old neighbor, Brandon, with me to see the puppies. We had fun, and so did the puppies. They are acting much more like typical puppies and much less like “things that look like puppies but don’t do much because they’re too small” puppies. They’re running around more and playing with each other and us now. Yesterday, I didn’t do much, but that’s how I like to spend my free time. I did practice my music for this season yesterday though (there’s only 17 days left until band camp – I have mixed feelings about that, haha). Here’s a picture of lime girl, lavender girl, and orange boy playing together.

Here are the polishes I got in July

  • Zoya – Liberty
  • Zoya – Renee
  • Zoya – Wednesday
  • China Glaze – Pink Voltage (Neon) [this is from April, but for some reason never made my count]
  • Out the Door Top Coat
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer – Always

July Total: 6

 

The other day, I was looking through my blog and decided that on my “Polish Stash” page, I wanted the names of the colors to link to pictures. Because of this, my posts will be featuring at least 1 swatch a week (likely with something extra as well), for a while. So I’m starting today with China Glaze – Frostbite. This is a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy topped with three coats of Frostbite and 1 coat of Out the Door Top Coat.

These next pictures feature everything above with three coats of Lucky 13 Lacquer – Always and a coat of Out the Door Top Coat. The first picture is with light, the second picture is glowing (not the best picture, but I was getting tired and didn’t want to hold my hand under the light for more than like 15 seconds). Thanks for reading!

June Polishes and China Glaze – Flying Dragon

Hey everyone! I totally forgot to blog on Monday, oops. So I’ll only have two posts this week. I haven’t decided if I’m doing 4th of July nails and if I am doing nails, I haven’t decided what to do. I watched the puppies on Monday, they’re getting bigger every day, but there hasn’t been any drastic change in them yet (their eyes should be opening sometime this week though!). And I’ll be watching them again today. I also have a hair appointment today, I haven’t had a haircut since December, although my hair isn’t too long, I need a trim. Tomorrow I’ll be hanging out with my neighbors and some family friends for the 4th of July. We’ll be having a barbecue and swimming (it’s been hot here, over 105* for the past five days). I hope that if you are celebrating tomorrow you have a great time and stay safe!

I also realized that I forgot to update my polish stash with my June polishes, so here it is:

  • Pure Ice – Freedom
  • Zoya – Anchor Basecoat
  • Zoya – Micky
  • Zoya – Josie
  • China Glaze – Flip Flop Fantasy
  • China Glaze – I’m With the Lifeguard
  • China Glaze – Flying Dragon
  • China Glaze – Pool Party
  • China Glaze – Frostbite
  • China Glaze – Celtic Sun
  • China Glaze – Sun Worshipper
  • China Glaze – White on White (2)

June Total: 13

Today’s nails started with a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – Flying Dragon. I topped that with two coats of Orly Nail Protector. The first picture is with flash, the second without. Stay safe tomorrow!

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!

January Polishes

Hello 🙂 I just thought I would share the nail polishes I bought in January, even though I’ve already used all of them. So here it goes:

  • Sinful Colors Professional Basecoat
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Mintlicious
  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Golden Hour
  • Wet n Wild Mega Last Candy-licious
  • Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Black Out
  • Wet n Wild Wild Shine Clear Nail Protectant (2)

I also purchased a “melmer” to store my polishes and nail supplies in. I bought grip stuff for the drawers (white with pink polka dots) and black and white (with a floral-like design) contact paper to decorate the outside of my melmer. So far, I really like it, it makes it way easier to keep track of my stuff and I actually can see my desk (before, all of  my nail polish and nail supplies were on top of my desk).
