Dots and Puppies

Hello everyone! I’m really happy to say that Roxie had her puppies on Monday night/ Tuesday Morning! She had 9 puppies total: 2 blue girls, 3 blue boys, 3 grey girls, and 1 grey boy (5 girls and 2 boys). She did a good job, it was her 3rd litter after all. After the 8th puppy was born, we didn’t think that there were any more so we took quick showers and rested. Then, four hours after the last puppy  we went to check on the dogs and found that Roxie had a 9th puppy all by herself. We all rushed to help clean him up and tie off his umbilical cord and he was all good. Renee (Roxie’s owner) caught the puppies; I was in charge of cleaning up/rubbing vigorously, tying the umbilical cord off, and clearing the nose and airways if needed; my sister was in charge of taking notes, helping me tie off the umbilical cords (holding the legs out of the way), weighing the puppies, and choosing the collar colors for each puppy. Roxie is a great mama and all puppies are doing well! Here’s a picture of 8 of the puppies (when this picture was taken, the 9th puppy wasn’t born yet).

I had the base color of these nails on when I was helping whelp puppies, so excuse the slight wear. I started with a coat of OPI Matte Nail Envy. I then applied two coats of OPI – Can’t Find My Czechbook. I then applied two coats of Lucky 13 Lacqer – Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights?. I finished that off with a coat of Orly In a Snap. I had that much on when I was helping whelp puppies, and added dots with China Glaze – Dance Baby when I got home after a much-needed nap (I woke up at 6am on Monday and was up until 8:15am on Tuesday). I topped that with a coat of Orly In a Snap. That’s it from me today, I’m going to be watching puppies today though, so if you want to see more pictures of puppies check out my Instagram. Thanks for reading, I’ll be back on Friday with more nails!

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a good week so far, mine has okay so far. My sister is graduating from high school tonight (it’s hard to believe she’s going to be going to college next year, time flies). Other than that I have nothing else planned today. Tomorrow I have another physical therapy session for my shoulder; I’m not sure how much it’s helping, but I guess I won’t really know how much it helped until I go back to Tucson for band camp. In PT, I’m working on strengthening/stretching the muscle in my shoulder blade area so hopefully it will be able to handle more of the stress that marching band puts it through. It’s strange really, I play the smallest instrument in the band (piccolo) and my shoulder is messed up; although it’s not messed up from the weight of the piccolo, it’s messed up from the position it’s held in. I only have one more year left though so even if it still hurts, I’ll try my best to push through it as best I can.

Lucky 13 Lacquer – Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights? (and 3D Dotted Nails)

**Products reviewed in this post were purchased by me**

Hello 🙂 Yesterday I had jury duty, I got out of one court room (thank you trip to Vegas in June), and then I waited until 3:30 and was released. I’m glad it’s over for at least another eighteen months though. I have physical therapy for my shoulder today at 10:20, hopefully all the physical therapy will help and I’ll be able to march relatively pain-free. I’m surprised at how fast summer is going, even though it’s only been a week and a half that I’ve been home, it doesn’t feel like it at all. I guess that’s a good and bad thing; a good thing because I’m ready to go back to school and finish my senior year (not excited about the learning part though) and a bad thing because I feel like summer is rushing by and I haven’t really even done anything. Although, later this summer (in about a month) I’ll be helping watch Weimaraner puppies for a family friend who is a (very responsible) breeder. I’m excited for that because I love dogs so much, and puppies are so adorable. Today’s post features my first indie polish – Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights? from Lucky 13 Lacquer.
