5 Things: Peanut Edition (April 2013)

Peanut's Current Faves:

Klaus the Crinklebug

1. THIS toy. You pull on it and the bug vibrates down to land on the flower. The wings and the flower petals are crinkly. Top side of the petals are colorful with different patterns as shown in the pic, the undersides have different patterns in black and white. Add the rings at the bottom, random ribbons, antennae (always the antennae), and the fuzzy texture. They're so much going on here that even Peanut can. not. deal. We started out calling him crinklebug, but he's been officially dubbed Klaus*.

 2. Her Bottle. It's crazy to think that she recognizes stuff at only 6 months old when she doesn't know much, but I'll tell ya what. She knows when the bottle has formula in it and she LOVES it. She gets soooooo excited when she's about to get one. She kicks her little legs and waves her arms around whenever I pick it up before I feed her. Cutest. Thing. Ever.

3. Owl City. Any song by Owl City. She has a bunch of toys attached to her car seat and she goes NUTS when Owl City comes on the iPod. Not sure if this is an all babies thing or just a Peanut thing. Little girl thinks she's in the band, or something.

4. Sweet Potatoes. They're the winner out of all the yellow** veggies.

A Stylish Little Peanut... :)

5. Sunglasses. Peanut can't STAND having the sun in her eyes. It took a little while for her to get the concept down... (you wear them, you don't eat them.) It may not look like it, but she really does like them! She kept them on for a full 30 minutes or so the other day while we were outside!!!


* Why Klaus? Well, Pierre the Bunny is French, Tomas the Turtle is Spanish, so we decided that crinklebug would be German.  
** They call them yellow, but they're actually orange.

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…

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…

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.
