Golly gee, I was so happy to wake up to my ulcer acting up in full force this morning. Thanks a heap. I did manage to still get my hairs cut and then went to the local appliance store because for some odd reason, my mom wanted me to go look at the refrigerator she's thinking of buying. She's an odd duck, that one. I thought she only ever asked my opinion on living room carpeting, once when I was 10 and once about 6 years ago. Because that woman keeps everything. Forever. Seriously, her current fridge is 29 years old and the only reason she's buying a new one is because the door needs a new part in order to keep it closed.  Who keeps carpeting for 35 years and a refrigerator for 29? Craziness. I have to say I would kill for that fridge she's gonna' buy. Not that it would even fit in my house. After I saw it I called her and told her that I want it so she should just buy me a new house to fit it. 

She disagreed.

I was supposed to go to dinner with my cousin tonight who is up visiting from Savannah, but eating is not happenin'  with this stomach right now. So screwed that up. She is going to come over to visit in a little while so at least I'll get to see her.

I decided to be a little ambitious with the nails last night. I wanted to do more than the accent nail fully covered, but I kept getting interrupted and I didn't have time to do them all. This one is way out of the norm for me.
When wandering eBay one night, apparently I felt like shopping and decided that I must own glequins!! In a whole bunch of colors, no less. WTF?? 

I wish the color and sparkle of this showed better, and of course it was cloudy today so I couldn't even take a shot in the sun. The polish is Barielle Ocean Breeze. The sequins are a shimmery sheer-ish aqua blue. And yes, "sheer-ish" is a word. Google that shit. You'll see that I just made it up.

Of course I couldn't just have an accent nail; that is also so not me. It was still only 1:00 a.m. so I decided to do the stripe near the tips.  I had some fun with this and will probably play with them again at some point, but lordie it was time-consuming!

Bedtime: 2:00 a.m. Me: jackass.


  1. It still is a pretty manicure :)

    1. I rather like it but I really did want to do every nail just for the "bling"
      of it.

  2. Nicely done! I'm not sure I would have the patience to apply all those little tiny sequins.

  3. Pretty! Sequins make everything better. Also, just wanted to let you know that I nominated your blog for the best blog award. Check out my blog for the rules and questions. Hope you feel better soon. :)

  4. Well I love it! I'd probably love the fridge too. Sad she disagreed on the house though. Better luck in 29 years when she asks your opinion again? ;)

  5. I would end up smashing something before getting all those sequins on so neatly!! Kudos for the patience!
