Last Wednesday we went off to Marquette to pick up my car. It's a beauty, and I love it! I wasn't kidding when I said it would take forever to learn how to use everything. It's ridiculous.
It didn't occur to me that it would take over 3 hours to wrap it up and leave the dealership. Not only did it take awhile to do paperwork, once that was all finished they actually do a "lesson" on all of the gadgets in it. I just sat in the back seat and let Kev pay attention. 

That might have been a mistake. It took me a good 5 minutes on Thursday morning just to figure out the heat.

It has a push button start which is pretty cool.  What is not cool is driving it to the store after work, parking and going in to shop and then coming out to find the car running with the doors unlocked. I completely forgot to push the button and turn it off. Thankfully I live in an area where car thefts are extremely rare. I still can't believe I did that. Needless to say, I'm being extra careful about that now!

The other night I was at a loss for what to do on my nails. Why I eventually decided on this is anybody's guess. It kind of turned out looking like flames although that wasn't really my intention.
Square Hue Scorched Summer, Kleancolor Metallic Red, Orange and Yellow
I used Square Hue Scorched Summer for the main color and then used a nail art brush to slap on Kleancolor in Metallic Red, Orange and Yellow.

I do like how it turned out. I'm really not sure what I was thinking it would look like. I've just been struggling to feel creative.

It really is time to do some Halloween mani's. I've pulled all of my Halloween stamping plates out, but so far that's as far as I've gotten. I keep looking at them just hoping some kind of idea will hit me. Unfortunately none of them are doing it for me, and time's running out! At this rate I'll end up doing one that never leaves the house.

It's one of the drawbacks of only working a couple of days a week now. I take the time to do nails that only I see. Makes me kind of sad.


  1. Love the new ride!!!! I would have made Kev sit in the back...I love all those gadgets in the cars these days! You are gonna LOVE those heated seats.....I'm assuming it HAS heated seats!! :)

    The mani is nice! It does look like FLAMES! hahaha Smokin' Hot! :) Don't sweat the Halloween mani... just do what you can... and don't over-think it!!!

    1. Oh, it does have heated seats, and I knew I'd love them. I rode with Tyler to Illinois in February in her Tribeca and knew I needed those. I also really love that each side of the car can set its own heat level since I always want it hotter than Kevin does.

  2. Your nails are HOT, exactly like your car!
