Have I told you how nice it is to be in our new place? It’s crazy how cramped we were at our other house – literally every day I would have a headache because of the noise level. I have not had one headache while we’ve been in the new house! Continue reading

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. đŸ™‚ Continue reading
