I can’t remember what group it was but someone asked for a comparison of these two polishes. Since I happened to have the both of them, I polished one hand with Apophis and one hand with Mirabilis. In this photo above, Apophis is the top hand, and Mirabilis the bottom. Continue reading

I’ve been crying off and on for days, and this manicure made me tear up even more. Confused? Well, I’ll attempt to clear it up. If you’re new to my blog, you might not know that this week marks the 8th anniversary of my mom’s death. Usually on the actual anniversary date, my kids and I go perform Random Acts of Kindness in our community in her honor. (#RAOK4Lucy on Thursday to follow along.) I’m really struggling this year though. Maybe it’s because as my youngest two grow up, I’m realizing more and more not only what my mom is missing, but what they are missing by not having known her. Let’s see more of this manicure and then I’ll tell you why it made me cry this morning.
1 coat of OPI Natural Nails Base Coat
3 thin coats of Necessary Evil Polish Norepinephrine,
1 coat plus dabbing of L.A. Colors Mermaid Magic Shimmer Mist
1 coat of Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny!
This is a manicure I created while I was on my staycation last month, and of course I have almost no recollection of it! 😛
Norepinephrine is a thermal polish but I wasn’t able to capture it very well. I’m going to point you to Jenalyn’s swatches which made me buy the darn thing in the first place!

Current mani time! I received my Polish Pickup Pack order yesterday and after waiting for polishes to warm up, I couldn’t wait to use Moonflower Polish Ken, I Pink I Love You. It’s so freaking hot and it’s helping me stay warm since I’m freaking cold and hibernating. 😀
Here’s a fun manicure I created a couple of weeks ago! I know it’s kinda autumn-ish, maybe I’m just tired of looking at white and gray outside my door and am longing for color. 😛
The hummingbird and flower decals were gifts, as were the Supermoon Lacquer and the Parrot Polish. To be honest, I can’t remember if the OPI was a gift or if I picked it up at TJ Maxx. *think think think*
At any rate, I’m loving not only the polishes individually but also together! They form such a cohesive little grouping. ❤ I wish I could have shown off the thermal capabilities of the Parrot Polish better, but it is what it is.
