Stormy With A Chance Of Polka Dots

Now, before I get into my sob story of a post, I just want to say a ginormous HELLO!!!!!! to all the new followers. I go to bed with 80 some and return to 95! 95? Seriously?! I cannot believe it. I was seriously pumped when I first started (it has been over a year now) and had 1 person following me - it made it all worth it to me. I want all of you to know that I cherish your taking a look at my blog and liking it enough to stay on board.. Also, I have been receiving comments on old posts (I try to address all comments on previous entries on the next entry.. I may have to look in to answering comments no matter when they show up.. anyways..) so, for those comments on 'older' posts, I appreciate your comments and look and smile at each and every one! You're all dolls. Thank you!

Now on to my story then a quick glance my nails.. I will apologize in advance. I worked two shifts before I photographed the nails. My weekend was busy with work, errands, going to the casino and being depressed. Why the depression? I am sure some of you will remember pictures of my babies (aka the degus aka Bennie and Jet).. Anyways.. I had noticed the past month and a bit that Jet had gained a lot of weight. Not that I am complaining, HE looks adorable no matter what.. But I had to be a bit worried because degus are prone to diabetes and I really do not want that for HIM. My sister and I had them running the stairs the other night (that is Jet's favourite form of exercise) and he had scrambled on to my hand and sat there.. I picked him up and was rubbing HIS belly when I felt this little bump.. I was like 'did big bad Ben bite you?!' as Bennie is the dominant male in this pairing. I am not sure what inclined me to do so, but I felt higher up and there was another bump.. and two others on the other side. Yeah, nipples.. On a "male".

I freaked out!! I immediately went online and looked up the difference in male and female private parts for degus. While just glancing they look the same.. They are not. Jet isn't a HE after all. HE is a SHE! And SHE is pregnant.. Sadly, it says that they can just keep having babies immediately after giving birth, and then complications can arise.. Basically disaster. I had to do something that I never wanted to do. I had to surrender her back to the pet store I got her from. (hah.. what a nerd.. I am now crying while writing this..) the people at the pet store probably thought I was the largest oaf ever. I was basically bawling in the store while filling out paper. They were jerks a bit as well. They were the ones that told us we had two males.. It was their mistake and now I am paying for it by not having Jet here anymore.

Despite the fact that they should always be kept in pairs, they told me that we can keep Bennie, which is nice.. But it makes me sad. He is acting so strangely now and it breaks my heart.. We have only had them since December and we grew that attached.. Ok, I am going to stop typing this out.. It hurts too much.. Plus who wants to read a novel on my polish blog eh?

The reason I have shared this story is because it explains my nails. I wanted something that was sad and depressing yet happy (re: I am sad and depressed to not have Jet, yet happy because we still have Bennie), I found something in my inspiration folder that was a bit of both.. So 'Stormy With A Chance Of Polka Dots' was born..


Again, sorry for the terribad photo. I did crop out my index finger though as it was chipped beyond recognition.. I used OPI Elephantastic Pink and Orly Mirror Mirror.



Hopefully something good will become of this evening.. I think my dad wants to go play roulette this evening. Maybe we'll win big or something.. I spose I should consider doing my nails soon here.. Oh, I also snipped them all off again the other night.. Anytime I deal with sadness, I like to 'start' over. Be it my room (which is sparkling clean and super organized right now.. after I had to take Jet in..) or my nails.. Le sigh.

Oh, I also said last post I would toss up a photo of the sponge I used for the Peachy Keen look..

Alright, I am done now. Sorry for the novel! I hope everyone is having a better start to their week then the ending to mine!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..
