China Glaze At Vase Value/OPI Black Onyx Chevrons

Hey everyone! I know I’ve been absent for a while, I never really intended to abandon my blog, but life got in the way. I’ve been super busy with work, life, and my dogs. The dogs are doing well, Copper’s grown a lot and weighs about 11 pounds now (when I got him he weighed 4.5 pounds). He’s 9 months old now and is a good dog for the most part (I’m still dealing with chewing and puppy energy, but he’s super smart and learns pretty quick). Sophie is also doing well, still a sweetheart and she’s getting better with being along while I’m at work. Everything else has pretty much been the same. I haven’t really had time to do my nails lately and when I have had time, I usually use gel polish because it lasts longer and dries more quickly than normal polish. I’m still working on perfecting my gel polish application, but I feel like it’s getting better.


Today’s nails are more chevron nails. I’m still practicing with the nail vinyls, so I apologize for the messiness of some of my nails. I started with a coat of OPI – Natural Nail Base Coat. I then applied three coats of China Glaze – At Vase Value. Once that had dried completely, I applied the chevron nail vinyls. I then applied a coat of OPI – Black Onyx and removed the nail vinyls. I topped it off with two coats  of Seche Vite. (I haven’t really been taking that good of care of my hands/nails, so I apologize for my cuticles  and nail shapes). Thank you for reading, I’ll try and work on posting somewhat more regularly. Have a great day!!

Bundle Monster Mulberry Surprise/Berry Fizz Gel Polish

Hi everyone! I guess it’s been a while since I’ve posted, oops. I’ve been super super busy with work and life in general and I haven’t had time to do my nails much (actually at all haha). Not much has changed in the last couple months. I still have my dog Sophie and last month I rescued a three month old puppy I named Cooper (he’s four months old now and doing pretty good). He knows sit and I’ve started teaching him to lay down. He’s getting the hang of those, but house training is taking a while – mostly my fault though, but we’re working on it. Everything else is going pretty good. Here are some pictures of Cooper!

Now for the nails! I apologize in advance for the quality of my nails/the pictures – I’m a bit out of practice haha. I recently got a gel nail polish kit/supplies so I’ve been experimenting with those. I used the Gelish Foundation, two coats of Bundle Monster Color – Mulberry Surprise (cured in between coats) then I used Chevron Nail Vinyls and Bundle Monster Color – Berry Fizz, I then applied two coats of Gelish Top it Off. Both Mulberry Surprise and Berry Fizz are color-changing polishes, so pictures of both the cold and warm colors are below. (the cold pictures are on top and the warm pictures are on the bottom). Thanks for reading, I’m not sure when I’ll be posting again, but I plan on keeping up with blogging (at least occasionally).
