Post 100 (Pic Heavy-ish)

My 100th post.. I spose it isn't the most impressive milestone, but I am still pretty happy about it!!

All I really have to post about is all the goodies I have acquired lately. And by goodies, I mean polishes!!


I bought these gems before I went away for surgery.. Actually a week or two before.. I just had them hidden away in a bag.. Until now! The photo (from l to r) is OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede, OPI Manicure/Pedicure Papaya Pineapple Scrub (this smells amazing! I used this before I went away for surgery - cannot wait to use it again..) & a backup of CG Strong Adhesion Base Coat (seriously, I love this bade coat!!!)


I snagged these two bad boys from London Drugs last week.. Notice something with the bottle of OPI Alpine Snow? Right at the 'O', the serial number has been filed away. I *almost* put this back, but I was in desperate need for another (yes, another, this is bottle 4..) bottle.. BUT! The main reason for going to LD was to get Seche Vite  as it is …

Periwinkle Squares

Yes, I'm back. Two days in a row!

I think I am just super pumped because last night I actually got to put in an hour of reading.. with minor discomfort! Yes!

Oh, plus I have some photos of my little Bennie at the end - enjoy!


Here is what I used.. CG Secret Peri-Wink-Le & CG Liquid Leather. I was going to use a purple like the image does, buuuut.. I have a few untried and I really don't want them to become too many.. So CGSP it is! Also, I have been using two 'base' coats. I added OPI Matte Nail Envy into the mix because my nails are quite long right now.. And the crazy part is that they are all basically the same length.. I am just trying to avoid a nail break.. Once that happens I will clip down all my nails and start over again. Sigh. It is just nice to have these nice long nails again.

My take...
These were actually kind of easy to do.. For the most part. A few of the 'squares' were filled in (like my pinky and ring fingers), but I j…

Color Accent

Here are is my Color (I seriously want a 'u' in there!!) Accent entry for the PHD Challenge

I actually liked what I did. I can honestly say they looked better irl, but oh well! I wanted to wear the look for a few days, but for some reason my one and only grey polish seems to be missing!! Grr!! We (being my sister and I) know that she used it last.. And we literally looked everywhere. I am not impressed. 1 - it is a perfect grey to me and 2 - it is Orly.. that brand is not readily available to me.. I have to order it in. Guh. So not impressed.

For this look, I used OPI Alpine Snow (will need a third/fourth backup asap), CG Liquid Leather & CG In The Lime Light. I also mixed Alpine Snow and Liquid Leather for the grey. I was going to keep mixing so I could paint up my other hand.. But I didn't want to use a bottle to mix, so it dries super quickly!!


Like I have been saying in my past few posts, I had surgery.. And I'm sort of starting to bounce back.. But I feel so d…

I'm Not Cool

By Sohodolls. I don't have a mani to show off today, so I decided I would use a song title! It has been quite some time.. (sidenote: the website that I update my blogs' music player is acting lame.. hopefully I can add the song later!)

My bestie bought me an iTunes gift card as part of my 'Get Well' package.. So of course I did a little music shopping and it recommended this song for me.. and I actually really like it!

That isn't the only shopping I have been doing.. I am not back at work til probably September.. And I did sock away a pretty good sum of $$, but really.. I shouldn't be 'shopping'.. Cannot help it! I bought the two seasons of True Blood off of ebay for $40 altogether.. AND! I put in an order at TD.. oops.

So, since I don't have anything MANI-wise to post, I figured I could post what I ordered. I will doing my nails in a bit for the PHD Challenge, so I will post that either tomorrow or Friday.. Anyways!


There are all the goodies that s…

I'm Home

I really shouldn't be posting this right now.. I should be upstairs sprawled out awaiting bedtime.. but I just wanted to sprint (ok.. slowly walk down the stairs) and let all you lovely people know that I made it through my surgery a-ok!

I am extremely sore.. Weak.. slow.. Cry randomly, etc, but I am home! I even survived the 2.5 hour car ride (ok.. I slept for 98% of it..)

I will try to maybe do my nails this weekend and have something for Monday.. Plus I have a million blogs to look through! Phew!

Have a wonderful evening everyone! I am about ready to pass out!!

Pink Cheetah Fail

One of these days I swear I am going to master cheetah-print-esque nails on myself. Sadly today is not that day.


Sooo, this will be my last entry for a little while.. I go in for surgery on Monday and will be in the hospital until Thursday.. Once I am released I get to travel back home (about 2 and a half hours) and prepare for my 6 week recovery. Bleh.

That is why I haven't been posting anything this week. I have just been relaxing, making sure I get everything in order for at least next week as I am not sure how everything will turn out.. I had to travel today and go for my pre-assessment appointment.. Went over things to expect AND I got to meet the man that will be making me go to sleep for a bit.. Pretty intense. Then had to have MORE blood work done.. So my hand will be nice and zombie like tomorrow.. And on top of all that.. I have been on my liquid surgery prep diet for 13 days now.. So I am excruciatingly tired.

Anyways, enough of my whining! I should go and rest. Last da…
