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!

ABC Nail Challenge 2014: F is for Fergalicious

ABC Nail Challenge 2014: F is for Fergalicious

Hey everyone! Long time no blog, oops haha. I didn’t intend to disappear for three weeks, but time kind of got away from me haha. The rest of my winter break was pretty uneventful, but my cousin had her baby (she’s super cute!) we went to see her a couple days before I had to head back to Tucson. I came back to Tucson on the 19th and my first class was on the 21st (even though school started on the 15th – oh the joys of having physical classes for 2.5 hours on Monday and Tuesday and two online classes haha). Last week I went to classes, did school work, and got back into the swing of things again. Yesterday I walked dogs at the Humane Society for a couple of hours and then came home and did laundry and more homework. I start my internship today and another week of school.

Today’s letter is F, brought to you by Fergalicious. I didn’t know what to do for F, so I went simple like I did for D is for Dance Baby (although going simple allows me to update my swatches on my polish stash page). For these nails I used a coat of OPI – Matte Nail Envy and three coats of Wet n Wild – Fergalicious (from the Fergalicious collection). I then applied a coat of INM – Out the Door top coat. I’ll be back on Wednesday (for real this time) with G nails! Thanks for reading, have a great week! 🙂

Forever 21 – Cotton Candy Swatch

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate and if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you’ve had a great week. My Christmas was pretty good, I got some yarn and yarn needles (I picked up crocheting at the beginning of this month), a curling wand for my hair (that I’m not good at using because I’m scared of burning myself; but I really like the way my hair looks when it’s curled so I guess I’ll have to practice), red and blue Arizona Wildcat nail polish and block A nail stickers (the polish doesn’t have a brand name or a color name, but they look like they’ll be decent polish and the bottles have block As on them), a shirt and a jacket, and some other stuff. For Christmas dinner my mom, dad, grandpa, and sister had prime rib and my grandma and I had turkey (I’m not a huge fan of prime rib, although this year it looked like it was cooked really well). We also had mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, 24 hour salad (it’s like a fruit salad with marshmallows and a custard; it’s my favorite part of holiday dinners), fresh cranberries, and olives. It was a really good dinner. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday and in the afternoon we went to the mall (except my dad, he had to work) and returned a pair of my sister’s jeans and my sister and I stocked up on soap to take back to school with us (Bath and Body Works was having a sale), I also got a new pair of pink and white Tom’s shoes. Then for dinner last night we went to sushi (yum)!

Today I have a swatch of a polish I got from a friend for my birthday earlier this month – Forever 21 – Cotton Candy (baby blue/multi). I applied a coat of OPI – Matte Nail Envy as a base coat. I then applied two coats of Wet n Wild – I Need a Refresh-mint as a base color because the polish was not quite opaque on its own with two coats, and I Need a Refresh-mint matched the base of Cotton Candy pretty well. Then I applied two coats of Forever 21 – Cotton Candy (the name on the bottle was baby blue/multi, but I went online and found the actual name from the Forever 21 website). Cotton Candy is a crelly; it’s not quite a creme, and not quite a jelly. I topped it off with a coat of INM – Out the Door Top Coat.  Thank you for reading, have a great weekend!

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
