Things are gonna' get very busy around here in a few weeks. My Golden Retriever, Tinlee, is expecting. I'm excited and nervous about it because there's a lot involved to it. Hopefully everything will go smoothly, and I'm surely going to be posting a ton of pics as time goes on.

I'm also all set up to do a live feed puppy cam over on Ustream. A puppy cam is actually where I found Tinlee, completely by accident. I wasn't even looking for a dog to buy at the time. Once I started chatting with the people there and found out she was only 3 hours away, it took me all of 5 seconds to convince Kev that we "needed" a puppy.

Bright and early tomorrow morning my bathtub is getting installed. Yay!! Other than a couple of small details, that will pretty much wrap up the bathroom remodel. Before and after pics will get posted here soon.

It's pink week over in nail group so I thought I'd participate using one of this month's Square Hue polishes.
Square Hue Placa Catalunya, Essie  No Place Like  Chrome, Ninja Polish DRK-C stamp
I actually considered leaving it plain but just couldn't bring myself to do it. I am, however, kicking myself square in the ass for not taking a picture before I stamped it. I always think of that after it's too late.  Genius is me.

Anywho, this is Square Hue Placa Catalunya.  I tried using the Sally Hansen Color Foil silver to stamp, but that didn't work at all. My stamper wouldn't even pick up the pattern from the plate.

Because of that, I went with the tried and true Essie Mirror Effect No Place Like Chrome. Those mirror effect polishes are just the absolute best for stamping. Period.

The stamp is from the Ninja Polish DRK-C plate. We know I can't go wrong with that.

Now I'm off to either a) clean the house, or b) make something for supper.  

I'm tired from not sleeping well last night because of multiple nightmares, so I think I'll choose "b". There's a nice steak in the fridge calling my name.


  1. Yay for Tinlee. Yay for your bathroom. And yay for your pretty nails.

  2. Nice mani, Diane!!!! Can't wait for PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Oooh puppies! Those are some statement nails!

  4. I come across your nails on Pinterest all the time, gorgeous. Question: Which stamper do you use? Where did you get it from? I don't think I've come across one that will stamp such long nails consistently.

    1. Hi Chandra. I got my XL stamper on eBay. The seller I bought from doesn't have anything listed right now, but here it is from another seller.
