Hey guys!

Technically, I got my nails done on the nineteenth of February, but I’m pretty sure both colors will hold up nicely for the whole month of March! If not, then you’re get another post with this same kind of intro for April’s nails!

Since I went with the dark concept for January with the royal blue and emerald for my toes, I wanted to go lighter this time around. I just need something kind of bright but not as obnoxious! My nana has a big collection of different nail polishes stored in her kitchen. She has tons of nude, pinks, and glitter polishes, but I don’t really use them as much!

I’m pretty sure I’ve purchased both polishes; both came from the same haul! What’s really weird is that the pink polish I was going to use came from the haul too! Sometimes they get back in the cabinet and are lost for a bit!

This one jumped out at me first, which was strange because like I said, I’m not really into lighter colors but some days I just need something happy and this one did just that for me! Unfortunately, there’s no name for this color so I’m going by what I described it on my previous post. This is my second time using a Pure Ice nail polish, they’re pretty good as far as quality! You don’t need a lot of coats to get the shade of inside the bottle, but if you don’t have a clear finish polish, then it’s best to do two coats just in case! That’s what we had to do as after I got to doing things for my nana, we had to add another coat because of it had started coming off already!

“Limestone” by Sally Hansen:

I’ve used this green before and for me, it just symbolizes “spring” for me! And for a lot of people that’s what March represents, the coming of spring! Considering I went from an emerald color for January, I didn’t think I’d choose another shade of green for the next month(s) but okay!

For a lot of people, they might agree I don’t wear a lot of colorful outfits and that’s just my style! I feel whenever I do my nails though, I’m very colorful! I have my days where I need those darker colors to really set the gloomy mood I might be feeling. I might not be complaining much about all the snow and ice, but it doesn’t mean I’m not tired of it and need more warmer days full of green trees, flowers, and stupid bugs! I honestly miss going out and taking pictures of our cats on the porch. Those three days in the middle of January wasn’t enough for me!

My papaw is responsible for naming this post! After I showed him my nails, this is what came flying out of his mouth! I had some fun trying to do these pictures for this post! I used everything we needed to do this! Cotton balls, tissues, and Q-Tips!

What do you think of my nails, yay or nay? What kind of polish do you have on right now?

OOTD: Bloody Nails

Howdy!

So much for only four posts this week. Every time I feel like I don’t have enough I tend to find something to add later on in the week. You get this one today and two others tomorrow! As for the month of November, I’m still trying to figure out posts to add.. hopefully you’ll like them!

Forgive me, I don’t like taking my pictures while inside houses but since the weather outside continues to get colder if I want to keep doing these types of posts, majority of them will have to be taken indoors. Yesterday I spent a couple of hours at my nana’s house, this is what I wore. The pants you’ve probably seen before. I got these at Charlotte Russe for Christmas last year. The top is from Wal-Mart, it was actually purchased by my sister for herself but unfortunately it doesn’t fit her as she thought it would. My mom hates it because of the wide neckline, so it falls right off my shoulders. I like it though, its comfortable and tight around my arms which is perfect for this weather. Technically this is my first time wearing a sweater for the season! Another feature I like about it is the buttons on the sides of my hands. I like little details whether it’s on my hands or feet, I don’t care.

I also got my toe nails painted too! My nana didn’t want to paint her nails so it was just me this time. I recently purchased a few autumnal nail polishes at Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago. I think I should have went with the orange since it’ll be Halloween tomorrow. I’ve had that “Unbreakable Heart” screaming for me so decided to go with the red. The color looks like deeper in the bottle, but they look pretty for only having one coat on them. I’ve been calling them my bloody nails. If I don’t get to dress up for tomorrow, at least my nails will be done!

What do you think of my outfit and nails?

Three New Nail Polishes!

Howdy!

I’m back from spending time with my family. Technically I’ve been back for a couple of days but I’ve been trying to edit pictures and rest as much as possible because the last time I spent the night at my grandparent’s house and hung out with the family, I couldn’t do anything for at least two weeks! Things were a bit different this time around, but I’m still really tired! So to give myself some time to relax in the week, I’ve decided to publish a couple of smaller posts and leave the bigger ones for early next week.

Everything happened from Friday evening to Saturday night. It doesn’t seem all that short but to me, it was a lot longer than that trust me! A little run down, During day two, my Uncle Rick came down to spend some time with us. My Aunt Laurie and Uncle Mike had asked me if I wanted to join them while they went to Wal-Mart. I said sure. My younger cousin Taylor wasn’t originally going to go with us, but after I asked where he was Laurie went back and from what he told me she used games as a bribe to get him to go with us. I felt bad for him in a way, I talked my head off the whole way there, but he let me have it on the way back so it was all right! I learned a lot about him on that ride home so that was nice! He’s like me, he’s a little bit shy. If you can get him away from his nook he’s very lively and talkative! I felt bad I managed to lose my UNO cards in the last month and I don’t know why we managed to not buy a whole new deck of cards while we were there! Next time we’ll have our rematch!

I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about this before but my Aunt Laurie and her husband Mike are both deaf, it’s a bit difficult to talk to the both of them. I can’t learn sign language even though we’ve found out there are ways for ones who use their feet like me to do it. Unfortunately my toes can’t separate from one another, but I do know a couple of gestures that I CAN do with my left foot, for the most part I have to talk very slowly so they can (hopefully) read my lips. It’s a lot harder than it looks, I’ve always had an issue with it because I am a fast talker and a giggler, but then again if you saw these two and how fast they talk to one another, even with one hand it will amaze you! Sometimes Taylor does have to tell her what I said because he can hear and use sign language to translate it for her. It’s very interesting! I say this because the first thing she had him ask me was “what do you want for your birthday?” I honestly didn’t know! I still don’t know to tell you the truth!

On our outing, they were searching for things for my grandparents like my Papaw’s ice cream bars. He loves fudge bars but whenever my mom goes shopping at the end of the week for them, she has a hard time finding them. Well, Wal-Mart didn’t have them either! My nana wanted more glasses. So they got her an eight or maybe it was a six-pack of small glasses for her. I was supposed to get her markers but I forgot. And Mike also got her some flowers (fake) for outside in the yard. I also got some pretty flowers, not that I have any place for them! You might see them in future blog posts! I love sunflowers and daisies and surprisingly that’s what I got! One of the last things we got though were the nail polishes! Laurie got some lipstick which turned out to be lip gloss instead! The packaging was misleading! Anyways, I was very troubled in choosing what colors I wanted to get this time around. There was more of a selection and I was only allowed two or three. So I came home with these three colors!

I generally pick these brands on accident almost every time! Sally Hansen and Pure Ice nail polishes! They’re usually cheap and low to my level so I can reach them. The first one that got my attention was the middle one. It’s called “Unbreakable Heart” and it’s a deep red, perfect autumnal color! The second was the “Big Teal” by Pure Ice. It says it’s teal but it looks more navy blue than anything else so we’ll have to see what that one does! And lastly because it is almost Halloween, I got a light orange color called “Sun Kissed” also by Sally Hansen! I really want to paint my toes in this color and borrow my nana’s black sharpie and make a Jack O lantern on my big toe! I’ve got too many ideas to do with that one stuck in my head!

Which color do you like the best?

NOTM: Green & Pink

Howdy!

Don’t worry this isn’t necessarily a new series I’m doing I just wanted an easy title and thought this would do the trick!

Last weekend, I went over to my nana and papaw’s for a little visit and since her internet has been a real pain lately. She’s been kind of without it for the last couple of days. She’s been doing a lot to distract herself though so I’m pretty proud of her for doing that. She’s been coloring a lot! Besides the fuzzy posters I gave her she found an old Peanuts coloring book from 2003. She’s had to switch from markers to crayons, something that she didn’t really like very much but it works! On this same visit my parents bought us some more posters, three different giant boxes. We each have eight of them and I’m REALLY considering that giveaway maybe one through Twitter and the other on Facebook?

One of the first things she asked me when I came over was can you paint my toe nails for me? It’s very interesting to me that every time I get asked to do this I cringe. Her feet are disgusting! Sorry nana! My feet are younger–for a lack of a better term to use–so it might be the reason why I tend to freak out a bit, but trust me my feet are far from perfect! Fun fact: I have hair on the tops of my feet and I HATE it! The day my feet get really nasty, I will probably crawl into a corner and bawl my eyes out! Anyways, she still had some polish on her toes but it wasn’t very bright so with the color she wanted could cover it up without any problems. She wanted a pink-orange shade by Sally Hansen. I don’t really remember the name of it. I actually love doing her nails because she doesn’t care if I get polish all over her. Eh, I’m not a master at everything! She painted my nails too, I am in love with my lime green color also by Sally Hansen! We’re a Sally Hansen type of family! That picture above is what happens when you use your toes to guide yourself in a push wheelchair. Sometimes you get little hairs stuck on your newly painted nails…

So that’s it! We didn’t do anything too fancy but this was fun too!
