My younger daughter, Tyler, came home on Friday night so she could see my granddaughter in Charlotte's Web on Sunday. She came to my house and then planned to stop and see the play on her way back to Illinois.  On Saturday night around 2:30 a.m. I was pretty much whining (for the umpteenth time) about the fact that she didn't bring Griffin with her on this trip. And she (for the umpteenth time) told me I would just have to go to Illinois for a visit. 

At that point I half-jokingly said that maybe I would just stowaway in her car and go back with her. Ten minutes later I was packing.  So Sunday we headed off to see the play, and home I went with her. Now here I am in Plainfield, and Kev is home alone for a couple of days without me for the first time. He's going to come here on Wednesday, and we'll go home on Saturday.  So a whole bunch of days with my sweet boy. 

He was sleeping when we got here last night, and it was soooooo hard to not be able to see him right away. And the poor kid has a nasty cold. He was pretty surprised to see me this morning. We've been having a ball. Luckily other than a cough, he doesn't really feel or act sick so there's no crabby kid syndrome.

I did bring a few polishes with me but nothing to do anything fancy. At least I have a few things I can post in the meantime. This is one that Nail It asked for. I think it's awful, but they seemed to like it.
Orly Lift the Veil, Valentine heart mani, rhinestone hearts
For the pink base I chose Orly Lift the Veil. It's a good pink that covers well and evenly. I used my Nail Candy nail art pens to do the hearts and then added some rhinestone hearts.

Once again, not a fan of anything I do freehand, and this one is no exception. But it's not like I actually had to wear it anywhere. 

On. Off. Done deal.



  1. Oh I love this! Don't call it pitiful! I just finished doing my own dotting tool hearts and was quite chuffed with result til I went to Pin and saw yours! If I'd seen these first I would have copied! :-D I don't have pens though, need some! My wobbly hearts!

    1. Oh, I think yours turned out cute! Your hearts are really nice and even. I only did them dragged because Nail It wanted them that way.
