Orly Royal Velvet & OPI Last Firday Night

Here is yesterday's manicure, still wearing it today.

It's two coats of Royal Velvet and once coat of Last Friday Night over RV on the ring fingers.

Seche Vite has reared its ugly head and gave me some shrinkage.  :(

However this is my fave manicure by far!!!

Purchased all items mentioned myself.

So I've already posted once today but this news requires another post!

I returned from Etown today to a small package in my mailbox.  I started jumping up and down and dancing because I KNEW it was my ring from Ginger Kitty Designs!!!!   I had mine ordered with China Glaze Hologram from the Tronica collection.  I FREAKING LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aura Pearl with Pink Flirt Pearl

Well, today's manicure is brought to you by financial aide and summer class registration.  I had OPI's Not Like the Movies on since Friday.  Today is a day for packing my punkadoodle up and heading to campus to give them the correct return paperwork and pick out my summer classes.  So I present to you Super Shine Naturistics Aura Pearl.  It's a purple shimmer with magenta and blue duo-chrome.  For the accent nail I chose Super Shine Naturistics Pink Flirt Pearl. Pink Flirt Pearl is a hot pink shimmer with a flash of blue in certain light.

I did three coats of each polish with one coat of Seche Vite.


At my window in the sun:

I bought these myself off of ebay.

Monday Monday Monday *in my best monster truck voice*

Today is my BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm 29.  Yup Yup!!!

I've been spending it taking care of my sick 3 month old.  She's been running a fever.    When I've had the chance I've been stalking some blogs.  Which is great cause I'm finding other nail hogs like myself.  I didn't realize how big the giveaways were on these things.  Check out my side like to see a few.  I'm still rocking my OPI DS amethyst that I applied St.Patty's night. Only have very slight free-edge wear.

My heart goes out to all the familys in Japan.   This is such a tragedy.  But just like every other great nation, they will regroup.

A day for the NEW

Today we got a few new things at Chateau Kaufman.

My amazing daughter got one of those things called a Bumbo.  I wasn't going to get her one but she's now wanting to sit up ALL the time and she can't support herself yet.  So momma broke down and got one.  Happy I did!!!

I also received my new glasses in the mail today from!!  I freakin' adore them!!!

Purge away good sir

Sorry, I had ALOT of posts but they involved my ex-husband and didn't feel that they needed to be posted anymore. It's always good to purge!!!
