Current mani with Don Deeva Varnish Notorious PEE and KBShimmer water slide decals

Purchased by Me buttonHey everyone! I hope your week is swimming along. So far I’ve avoided getting the cold that everyone else here has (knock on wood), but otherwise it’s been kind of a crappy week. Which is why I thought I could cheer myself up with a new mani. I spied Don Deeva Varnish Notorious P.E.E. sitting on my desk unused so I thought I’d try it on.

Notorious P.E.E. is a polish that was made for the Rainbows and Unicorn group on Facebook. It is a blue to purple thermal polish with the unicorn pee pigment and silver holo specks. I thought it was so cool that the first photo above was just after I finished my mani and just my ring finger was warm! Continue reading

Current mani with KBShimmer It’s Petrifying, OPI No Tan Lines, Baroness X Anthracite

Purchased by Me buttonHappy Saturday everyone! Well the sickness in the household continues and it’s snowy, cold, and icy outside so we are stuck inside. But life rolls on and on and while I have a moment, just a quick post to show you what’s currently on my nails. I’ve used KBShimmer It’s Petrifying, OPI No Tan Lines, and Baroness X Anthracite (X Army group custom).

Turquoise Flower manicure with CrowsToes Milquetoast, China Glaze What I Like About Blue, KBShimmer I Never Wood Have Guessed

Morning everyone! I hope you have had a great weekend and are ready for the week. 🙂 My husband’s car broke down (again), and he fixed it (again), plus we did a whole bunch of running around which basically that feels like all my life is anymore. But, it’s a new week full of new adventures. 🙂 Today’s manicure is one that I was inspired by a manicure from Nail Polish Society (who comes up with some of the best manicures, I think).

CrowsToes Milquetoast, China Glaze What I Like About Blue, KBShimmer I Never Wood Have Guessed | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started off with 2 coats plus top coat of CrowsToes Nail Color Milquetoast on my index finger. This applied a bit bumpy but there was good glitter coverage (yes those two things are connected). Of course I don’t think my super short nail helped either.  Continue reading

Happy Monday to you all! Tomorrow I will have a 7 month old in the house! He is such a cute lil stinker who gets into everything and has 6 teeth.

Let’s check out this mani with KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher, Polish ‘M The House Always Wins, and Baroness X Panty Dropper.

Thermal Drag Marble manicure with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue and Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good weekend. I’ve been working out more often and trying to get more fit, so I’ve graduated from walking, then walking with running intervals, then running with walking intervals, and now full on running. Don’t get me wrong, running isn’t my favorite thing but I am trying to vary my workouts. I have discovered I enjoy lifting weights, so there’s that! Anyway….today’s mani is a thermal drag marble with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue [gift] with Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure [purchased myself].
