Holiday Picture Spam

Hope everyone had a nice holiday. I know I ate a ridiculous amount of ham. I put several extra pictures up for my inlaws that were out of town this year. We didn't take a family photo this year, aah! Just to warn you there is a ton of pics!

Koi pond.

I will show you my new nail polish in another post, but I had to include my Hello Kitty toe socks!

Mum got a HK stamp set.

Eric and Olivia's dog Hans. We went over to check on them after dinner.

Their other dog Taffy.

I think we scared her so many people showed up!

I guess Hans eats when he gets excited lol. It was cute.


Tootsie wishes I was a huge hunk of ham!

We played poker with grandma and grandpa!

I did good at the beginning and had big chip count.

Then I lost it all to mum! Darn you mum!

I wore Lippmann Ruby Slippers for Christmas. I got this holographic topcoat as a present so of course I slapped on 2 coats right away and later that evening I had this crazy tipwear. Note to self: don't ever wear 3 coats of Ruby Slippers, 2 SV, 1 normal clear coat and top it off with 2 coats of a holo topcoat!

I was bending my nails doing everyday stuff so here is my current mani. 3 coats of Essie Pink Diamond (another Xmas gift!).

This is what I'm currently working on, a bunch of frankens.

Happy New Year!

Early Christmas Dinner

So, after 2 weeks of being super sick (I think I spent a whole week in bed, ugh) I am just starting to feel pretty normal. My brother in law Eric and his wife Olivia are going to be out of town for xmas this year so we had an early get together for dinner and presents.

My in laws dog, Tootsie in her festive collar, she was so cute!

My mother in law gave me a HK purse holder. You put this on the edge of the table and underneath is a hook where you can hang your purse!

I didn't take any nail pictures, but I'm wearing Ruby Slippers and Emerald Sparkle alternating each finger.

Here I am slightly cross-eyed and looking pretty crazy faced. I'm drinking green tea!

We went to a local steakhouse for dinner, here is my salad with tomato vinaigrette.

I had a 10 oz. filet mignon with a side of zucchini and squash.

Olivia had lamb!

Creme Brulee for dessert, my favorite!

Alex getting kisses.

I got a couple new lipglosses, I just put on Giza by NARS here. It's a peachy nude very pigmented, love it! Thanks Eric and Olivia.

Do you guys remember the nail whitening gel I got a few weeks ago? I tried that for 12 days (the instructions say 14 but man) but I couldn't stand to finish it. I will show you the results and why I hated it so much next post!


Hi, I've been really sick since Sunday been in bed most of the time. I also took my polish off that I wore for a week (one of Nixxy's!) and I'll not be wearing any color until Christmas. I bought a few things when Sallys had free shipping on any order (and I had to use my 20% coupon!), one of the items was a whitening clear polish. I am curious if it will work on my nearly orange nails so we shall see! Sorry about the absence, I'm actually glad I got sick now and not during Christmas lol.

I wore Devilish for an entire week and not 1 chip, love this color! The gold didn't really show up much but my nails looked like sparkling garnets!

Nixxy gave me a great tip about the white plastic, just take it off!

Back to bed, have a good weekend everyone :)

China Glaze Mahoganie

I am wearing only 2 coats with 2 coats of SV. I like this color so much! And it sparkles! China Glaze has kept me so happy with the new glitters lol. This one has me peeking at my nails now and then.

Just a closer up picture. Hey did you notice my thumb in the other pic? It was mad at me because the other 4 fingers get all the limelight so I said okay left thumb, today is your lucky day!

Guest Pictures and Eki Love

My guest is Cortney, my sister in law! She did a holiday mani, I forgot to ask what she used, I think it might be a $OPI red. Guesses anyone? I love the santa hat.

This is Cortney's yorkie Tweeks, she is so friendly and cuddly I love her to bits! That hoodie is awesome lol. I bet it's freezing in Seattle right now!

My Ekilove parcel arrived!! Everything was meticulously packaged, it was so adorable I hated to open it.

Eki included some candies and other goodies in the other satchel, and my earrings on the right.

Kawaii Wing Earrings. So cute! Thank you Eki I love them :) Click here to check out her store!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a nice weekend, mine was spent eating mostly. I have a lot of pictures today, starting off with my current mani:

After much debating, I finally chose Onyx Shadows. This is 2 coats with 1 coat of Seche Vite. I don't know if you can see it, but there is depth to this color. I want to touch my nails because it looks textured. I thought I would have to be careful about brushstrokes but this isn't just another metallic gunmetal grey! I took so many pictures lol. This is indoors.


Sunlight. More, more!

The shape of this plastic is interesting. Good idea, but it just doesn't work for painting your own nails. Gosh I would totally spill this on my lap if I tried to hold it with the bottle open like this I think.

So, remember Black Magic from my last post? I shook the poo out of the bottle and slapped on a third coat and bam! The orange glitter was everywhere. Click to enlarge (any picture in fact). So that other mani I posted was user error lol.

Thanksgiving dinner at my in laws. The table looked so awesome!

Dinner was amazing too, forgot to take a picture. I was wearing my hair up using a giraffe chopstick and put on this beaded ring that decorated the apple cider bottle.

My mother in law whipped these out and that label is funny. What do you give your non-special guests?!

5 pies! The 3 on the left are homemade pumpkin, coconut cream and pecan. The other two are from Marie Callendars double cream blueberry and german chocolate pie. Aaaaaah!

Double cream blueberry was delcious. Have a great day!
