20 Facts About Me

Welcome to Day 2 of Blog Every Day in May! Today was such a busy day! Book sale at the Library, painting the trim in Peanut's room at Le Nouveau Chez Sparkle, herb and flower shopping, exercising... I. Am. Exhausted.

I'm definitely ready to get some serious zzzzzzzzzzs. So... here are 20 random facts about me.

1. I'm a Pisces.

2. I originally went to college to major in Chemistry.

3. My favorite color is purple, but other than on my nails, I rarely wear it.

4. I'm really gullible. Trusting to a fault, too.

5. My car is named after Harry Potter character Regulus Arcturo Black. Reggie for short.

6. I'd rather be driving a T.A.R.D.I.S.

7. I love midnight book and movie releases. I've been known to take off for a book release or season finale. I'm a total fangirl and proud of it.

8. Daisies are my favorite flower.

9. In high school, the walls of my room were a giant collage. Not sure which was more painful... Taking everything down that I worked so hard to create... Or spackling and sanding every hole the sticky tack left.

10. I had my adenoids taken out in 7th grade. The doctor said they were the biggest he'd ever seen. I never got to see them.

11. I've never had a pet other than goldfish. All 4 were carnies. 1 got buried. 1 went missing. The other 2 got flushed.

12. No lie, I'm seriously drawn to shiny things like a crow. Glitter is my spirit animal... I'm not even kidding.

13. I suffered from night terrors for a really, really long time.

14. Scott Westerfeld is my favorite author.

15. I haven't painted my toenails since Fall of last year. I've got a pedicure scheduled for next Saturday, and I couldn't be more stoked!

16. Peanut and I are currently bouncing between 2 houses like gypsies, and it wasn't bad at first... but the vagabond life is no longer for me. I'm always forgetting something.

17. My daughter is my solar system. She's my best friend. Her kisses are the sweetest and her hugs are magical.

18. It's funny how my life right now is nothing like what I imagined it to be 5, 10, or even 15 years ago. But I really have no regrets, because without all that backstory... I wouldn't be me!

19. I'm contrary. I don't even try to be, I just am. There's a very strong desire inside of me to be unique and different. Sameness bores me.

20. I love, Love, LOVE warm weather. Days that hit 90 or above, and especially nights that are in the 70s. There are so many excellent memories from warm summer nights. There's just something magical about sweet, balmy air and darkness. MMMmmmmmm...

And on that note, 'til tomorrow... Sweet Dreams and G'Night!!!

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…

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.
