Bonjour Pierre!

If you saw my post last night... You know that Monsieur Pierre finally made it to Chez Sparkle! I had a stuffed bunny for a lovey when I was little, so I wanted to pass along that tradition to my little Peanut. I was super excited to see how she liked him!


Pierre the Bunny
So excited to meet his new friend!

Peanut & Pierre
Hey fuzzball, this is my lamb chair! OUT!

Peanut is an only child, and very likely to stay that way. We're trying really hard not to spoil her... but have you seen her? Almost 5 months old, and so hard to say no to those ah-dorable little eyes. She's declared the lamby chair to be hers and hers alone... (We're still working on that whole sharing thing!)


Peanut & Pierre
Oh... Fuzzball is for me?

Peanut & Pierre
...to play with? Gee. Thanks... I think.

Have to give her the benefit of the doubt... Measuring in at 18 inches tall, Pierre is only 6 inches shorter than Peanut. This is by far the biggest toy she's ever been given, so she wasn't quite sure what to make of him.


His head is SQUISHY!

Let me taste his arm.

Om nom nom...

Eat the satchel?

Peanut tastes everything. Everything I tell you. It's how she tests things.  Luckily, Pierre must've tasted pretty good, because he passed her initial inspection! 

Pierre's first hug. <3

Smushy Hug.

Nuzzle.

Don't tell Mommy! I'm making stinkers...

Relaxing in Peanut's Lamb Chair

Mine.

I think it's safe to say that these two have become fast friends. It might be a little while before Pierre is able to join Peanut in her crib, but for now, he's happy to watch over her from the nightstand!

On a side note, Peanut has mastered rolling from her back to her belly. Unfortunately, she hasn't figured out how to roll back onto her back from her belly. She's constantly rolling over onto her belly, sometimes being a little turtle, other times nuzzling the ground with her nose.  Last night was the first night she didn't wake me up with all sorts of flailing noises. I'm hoping it's a trend that lasts!

Did you have a favorite lovey/stuffy when you were little?


Peanut & Pierre
See ya next time!

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.

Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit. 
Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times. 
This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.
