Renegade

By Styx. This is probably one of my favourite tunes of all time. I am not entirely sure why.. But it is!

Yesterday I had painted my nails purple ala OPI A Grape Fit! And then added black stars on each nail.. Then went off to a hockey game with my lovely mitts on.. When I took them off? The stars were taking bites (seriously) out of the lining in my mitts. I was not impressed. Although I loved how it looked.. I think it would be more suitable for summer as the little stars won't try to nom on everything!!

After I removed the look (sorry, I didn't even snap a photo :\) I decided that I should paint my nails with one of my new polishes.. Sooo.. Grey seemed like a good colour choice to me. Kind of fits my mood as of late. ORLY Mirror, Mirror was selected.. But me being me.. I couldn't just leave my nails as polish without some sort of embellishment..

I went through my nail art folder.. It is huuuuge!! And found this image:




I loved the little floral details.. Reminded me of Old …

Casey's Song

By City & Colour. I like to think that my iTunes shuffler really seems to know me. I have been listening to tunes for the past hour and it has played more slow tempo-saddish songs for me. Because it knows how blah I feel. Dallas Green is a super talented artist.. City & Colour is his solo work, and it is really great. Have a listen!!

So this demon illness that I have has changed its course. I figured it was a sinus infection due to the fact that my head felt like it was going to explode. Now it isn't so much about my nasal area but my throat. Which worries me the most. If I get a head cold and stop it before it gets to my throat area, I'm in the clear. Fingers crossed for laryngitis or brochitis.. I am not interested in pneumonia right now.

I know I should be resting, but I was asleep for 12+ hours already. I spose I could go read.. Have a new book, yay!

Oh riiiight.. Nail polish!! Just a quick photo of a quick look that I put together so that my nails wouldn't be …

Stripper

By Soho Dolls.. I am not entirely sure why I enjoy this song so much.. But I do! Maybe because the female singer is almost monotone? Who knows! Oh, plus it ties in to my love of soundtracks.. It is from Gossip Girl and it is on the OMFGG Vol. 1 album. If you're interested, check the music player off to the side there.

I am going to keep this post to a minimal.. I am currently trying to nurse myself back to health. I have some doozy of a cold. Bleh. BUT, I just wanted to say that my transdesign order arrived! Yay!


Essie: Lollipop & Mint Candy Apple; OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Suede; ORLY: Mirror, Mirror, Glam Rock, Iron Butterfly & Solid Gold; CG: Doll House & Solar Flare.

I know these are all polishes that have probably been posted to death, but I am quite pleased with my random order (:

My mom grabbed Doll House and was like 'this will be a expletive to get get off..' and then brushes some onto her thumbnail and 'oooooh'ed'. I am pumped to try…

My Dollar Nail Art... Haul

BAH! I am really not a huge fan of the word ‘haul’, but synonyms for the word are really no better.. I guess I could say ‘order’.. BUT then again the word ‘haul’ is so widely used across the interwebs that I wouldn’t want to mess with what people know. /endminirant.


I woke up today to find my ORDER from Dollar Nail Art sitting for me on the counter. My last five days have been pretty sad.. My favourite (I say this with heavy guilt because you should never play favourites when it comes to your ‘children’) rabbit has been starving herself. Needless to say we keep her upstairs with us and just watch movies and snuggle her to give her body warmth and entice her to eat her favourite treats. I felt horrible every time I left the house to go to work. Sorry.. Just had to toss that all out there. I have been sporting a sadface for five days now.

I was pumped this is finally arrived.. Now I am just waiting for my transdesign order (fingers crossed that is arrives tomorrow!!)

First off, I have …

My Quick 11:45pm Shop Attack

I know.. No music title post.. Geez!!

Only because I just updated iTunes and need to restart before I do anything else.. And then I would be picking the song title manually and that is just not fair at all!!

Last night when I got off of work, my brother picked me up and was like 'We have to run to Shoppers'.. HEY! No problemo.. I love that place! So after my marathon shopping the other day and not picking up a single polish.. I of course went down the polish aisle of the store.. They still had their Insta-Dri polishes on for $3.. I nabbed two of them + a 60 Second Top Coat by Rimmel.. Thought I would give it a whirl..




Now, we know I am not one for swatching new polishes.. Plus I am already wearing my Russian Navy Unsuede-i-fied polish action. SO! I rigged something up.. And this was the best photo I could come up with..





Not the greatest.. But I tried! Both of these have 2 quick coats.. Green is my favourite colour, so I obviously love this one.. But it was Uptempo Plum that caugh…

Two of Hearts

By Stacey Q.. My enjoyment of soundtracks has come up a time or three.. And here it is again. This is from the Hot Rod soundtrack.. It is used for a punch-dance inspired scene that I never get bored of! A fun dancey kind of song. Visit the music player off to the side to hear it if you're interested at all!! **Edit: Apparently mixpod doesn't have the song.. Plus I might have already named one of my blogs this.. whoops!**

Sooo.. I bought (a replacement) bottle of SH Insta-Dri polish in 'Lightning' the other night.. I was getting sick of not having my go to yellow anymore..

But what to do with it? I was just going to do this cute look with alternating black and yellow nails with the yellow nails having black dots.. Then I rememberd the 'Insert-colour-name-here Insanity' looks..

A quick reminder:







Thus, my current mani was born:










I really am trying to get back into the groove.. My skills are a bit lackluster still, but I'm trying!! I will probably have to re-do …

I'm On A Boat

By The Lonely Island feat. T-Pain. Wow.. I just opened iTunes so I could click the play button to see what my title would be.. And it chose this. The reason for the wow? My nails are blue.. Blue.. Water.. Haha.. Ugh! I have been up since 8am.

Yesterday after I finished posting, I decided to remove my last look because it was so badly chipped and basically illegal. As I was removing the polish, I was looking at some of my nails.. They have some splits on the sides and one of them had this weird break that basically made it look like rolling hills. Anyways, I got crazy with the clippers. Goodbye nails! New Year, fresh start? Right? Yeah, I'm going to go with that.

I am not overly impressed with my work here, but I am so happy to be back in the nail painting saddle again. It feels better. I feel better! FINALLY! I think I can hear a hallelujah choir behind me.

Photo time!









And, because my nail paintage wasn't the greatest, I will toss in two photos to up the 'cuteness' fact…

Checking Out

By She Wants Revenge. Interesting musician who some say has the same kind of sound as Depeche Mode.


Oh, um, hello! How are all of you? I cannot believe how long I have actually disappeared for. I see my last post was on December 2.. And I am still coming to terms that I haven’t posted anything in a month. That is ridiculous! If I happen to still be in some blog rolls, then thank you for that, and if not I totally understand.

I could try to explain things that were going on, but it basically comes down to me not feeling like actually doing my nails for awhile there. I would slap on a colour and that was it – if I put on any colour at all. I was in that whole zombie-mode that I had talked about once before. Then one afternoon I looked at my nails and saw how boring they were.. Then I realized that I missed doing that little extra.

I am wondering if it is just the Christmas-y time of year that I go through some sort of ‘funk’, who knows. Not to say I didn’t have a great Christmas, I t…
