Easter Nails

Happy Friday everyone!  I can't believe it, but I think that Spring has finally sprung!  If you have been here for a while, you know I'm a winter person but this winter has been super long even for me.  Today, Owen, Lexi and I spent some time getting our bronze on on the side deck where the sun was beating down and making it nice and toasty warm!  Lexi was finding it a little hot and opted to go lie on the snow in the backyard instead, lol!

Last week, Celine from Nail Polish Canada emailed me and asked if I wanted to participate in their Easter Nail Art Challenge.  It's been a while since I've done nail art, so I thought I would give 'er a go!  Here's what I came up with:

I used a bunch of polishes, I'll just list them for you guys:
Julep Bess (blue)
Julep Blake (yellow)
OPI Rumple's Wiggin' (purple)
Julep Hayden (orange)
Julep Martha (pink)
Jordana Black
LA Colors Art Deco striping polish in White
China Glaze Fairy Dust (glitter)
Julep Matte Top Coat

The picture doesn't show the polishes in 100% colour accuracy, but it was late at night when I took the picture and by the time I got up in the morning, my sugar spun thumb was all smushed.

I love pastel polishes, and they look even better when they are topped with a matte top coat.  I love the chalky look of them :)

Have you done any Easter nails yet?  Post them to my Facebook page, I would love to see them!

Ellagee Polishes for Review

Hey everyone!  This has been such a long time coming, and I apologize Laura!  My blogging mojo still isn't quite back, but let's get to it shall we?

I purchased these polishes with my own money using a blogger discount code provided by Laura at Ellagee in return for my honest review of the polishes.  There are NO affiliate links below, only links to the products featured in this post.

I'm Alive!!

Wow, it's been over 2 months since my last blog post.. whoops!

I'm still alive and well, but let me tell you, my blogging has taken a nose dive.
I completely lost my interest in it, and it was starting to become too much work to do it daily, or even a couple times a week.

But, let's catch up, shall we?  Here's what's been going on in my life for the last while:

a)  Tyler got me a puppy for Christmas.  Remember this cutie?
Lexi will be 5 months on April 4th (oh how time flies!), and she is full of spit and vinegar, and keeps me busy most of the time!  Owen loves her, and she loves Owen, but they definitely have their moments, as all fur-siblings do.  She is now a little taller than Owen, and longer too.

(my sister's boyfriend's mom's dog.. cause that's not confusing as heck!)
Sidenote: Lexi was the same size as Bosco (pug) when we got her :)

b)  I'm getting married in October (YAY!), so wedding planning has started full swing around my house.  I have my dress, we have decided on the bridesmaid dresses, this weekend we are hoping to finalize the guys' attire, and we are going to try out some cake/cupcakes from one of the bakeries we have narrowed our search to.  All of the other bigger stuff, other than flowers, is done and decided on, so now it's just going to be deciding on all of the smaller stuff like d├ęcor.

c)  I have destashed my polish collection down to about 200 polishes.  YIKES!!  I know!  (Check out my Storenvy if you want to take some off my hands!)  Over half that remain are still untried/not swatched on their own, so I'm trying to work on that slowly but surely.  If you follow me in Instagram (you totally should!), you will have seen some polishes that haven't made it on here.

And, here's what I'm wearing today - Whimsical Ideas by Pam Hatched!  My first Whimsy ^_^

I'm going to really try to get back into blogging more, but it might be a once-a-week kind of thing, hope you guys don't mind :)

That's about it.  What's new with you??
