Tonic Polish Dorothy 2017, 2 coats and no top coat [previously used in this magnetic veil nail art]. Wonderful formula and just drop dead sexy!
Hi everyone! I’ve missed you so much. I’ve missed blogging but priorities have taken over. We moved into our new house on July 1 and my life has been amok ever since. Packing and unpacking and buying new furnishings and continuing work on our basement…plus panic attacks and anxiety. It’s been nutty. I didn’t leave my house for 4 days this week because the thought of doing so filled me with so much gut-churning.
Anyway, I’m going to be trying hard get back on the blogging train, I do miss writing and sharing my life with you, dear reader. I hope you’ll forgive my absence! I have been painting my very short nails in the interim (moving is hell on nails, yo!), and I have much to share with you. All the best and see you soon!

A few weekends ago was my gramma’s 100th birthday celebration (her birthday is in February, but had the party in the summer) and I created these nails that weekend. I actually smooshed the neons around on a plastic baggie, let them dry overnight, and applied them the next morning.

This is actually my first attempt at veil nails, before I did any of the others! I wanted to see if it would work with a magnetic nail polish and while it looks cool, it doesn’t have that veil look.

I am so tired, I gotta tell you. I feel like a broken record but when I get depressed and anxious, I get so tired. I had a doozy of a panic attack on Friday, the effects of which lasted all day. Then I was on edge all weekend. Yesterday I stayed in my pajamas and ate junk food all day. I did do my nails in a bright tropical(ish) skittlette and that helped a bit.

I was perusing instagram the other day (as one does when one is ignoring one’s children *ahem*) and noticed someone I follow (samantha1027) posted a photo about #polishswatchsunday. Curious about it, I clicked on the profile and wanted to jump in! The prompt for this Sunday is “toolbox red” and I pulled out an oldie: OPI The Thrill of Brazil. And because I can’t leave well enough alone, I created some nail art to go with. 🙂 Continue reading

Remember last week I showed you veil nails with neons? And a few days ago with a magnetic veil nail look? Well, I’m back today with a different kind of veil nail! I started off with Sailing & Nailing, which is slightly finicky but not too bad. Continue reading
