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!

Lucky 13 Lacquer – Always

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week! Mine was pretty good; I puppy sat, went to Chico, puppy sat some more, and relaxed. On Wednesday, Sarah and I took the puppies for their first real car ride. We took four puppies to my mom’s work (she works close to where the puppies live) and hung out there for about an hour while her coworkers came down to snuggle the puppies. Then we went back to the puppies’ house and switched puppies. We took the remaining five puppies to their owner’s (Renee) work. We put a blanket on the ground and the puppies stumbled around on the blanket while Renee’s coworkers took turns holding them. The first group of puppies was very noisy in the car, but the second group was quiet. Roxie (mama dog) did very good with us taking the puppies away and didn’t squish any of the ones that were left at home with her. The puppies are also starting to hear! I was making noises (I’m weird) and pink girl perked her ears up and looked at me. I continued to talk/make noises at her and she looked at me and my mouth while I was talking. I then cuddled with blue boy and barked at him, to which he responded to by barking and play growling at me. I’m headed back there today to watch them, so I’ll have more puppy pictures on Monday! Here’s a picture of all 9 puppies on a sheet in the kitchen.

Today’s nails feature my second ever indie polish! This is another Lucky 13 Lacquer polish (the same brand as my first indie). This polish is called “Always” and it is from Lucky 13’s Mischief Managed (Harry Potter) Collection. This polish was “inspired by the patronus and this exchange between Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape.” (“Lily? After all this time?” – Albus; “Always” – Snape). This polish is a “sheer silver-y topcoat with aqua microflakes that glows bright blue in the dark.”  I love this polish! It has a subtle shimmer and the blue flakes are subtle as well, until they hit the right light. I layered this polish over China Glaze – White on White to get the effect of the polish on its own without the base color adding or detracting from the polish. When I charged up the polish and turned the lights off, the glow was great, it’s definitely bright blue! The brush and formula are great, just as in “Hey, Who Turned Out The Lights?”.

I started with a coat of OPI – Matte Nail Envy, topped that with two coats of China Glaze – White on White, applied three coats of Lucky 13 Lacquer – Always, and topped it off with Out the Door Top Coat. I would definitely recommend this polish if you’re looking for a sheer silver topper that glows in the dark! It is available here for $8.50 plus shipping. Have a great day and weekend! Thanks for reading!

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.
