Let's Play Catch-up!

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I promised you stories for Friday and then I didn't post anything.  I have a good reason for that... I was EXHAUSTED! So here is a full run-down of my life the past few days (with pictures included!)...

Tuesday - Indie polish nail-mail!  This is a polish that I bought from Gnarly Gnails' Blog Sale.  I've seen swatches of it on the interwebs and thought it was such a pretty blue with lots fun thrown in!

The name of this polish is Seuss and it is from Whimsical Ideas by Pam.  I believe I am wearing 2 coats?  I can't remember :(  Either way this lovely polish is a blue jelly base with large silver hex glitter, medium red hex glitter, and small bits of blue glitter as well.  

I loved wearing this polish, but it was a nightmare to take off *sigh*.  Curse you glitter!!  Curse you ten-fold!!!  Info for purchasing this polish can be found on her Facebook page :)

Wednesday - I hosted a nail party at my place, a first for me.  The party started at 7:30 p.m. and I managed to complete 8 awesome manicures by 11.  I forgot to take pics of the manis before everyone left, but I got tagged in a couple of photos from my lovelies afterward...

My fellow singer/alto bestie requested jazz inspired nails.

My sissy-in-law wanted an anchor.  I couldn't get Sally Hansen's Golden-I to cooperate though, so she got lace instead.  I think she liked them ;)

The party ended around 2 a.m. after 50 billion hilarious rounds of Heads Up (an app created by Ellen DeGeneres that I highly recommend checking out).

Thursday - I rehearsed my children's choir for end-of-the-year concert.  I then ran around working in afternoon childcare. Theeeen I directed the children's choir in their performance from which I went straight to my own choir rehearsal (I didn't get to stay for the end of the kiddos concert *sniffle*).  I got out of rehearsal at 10 p.m. and made it to an 11 p.m. showing of Star Trek: Into Darkness with friends and fam (It's a-mazing by the by!!!).  I did galaxy nails for the occasion...

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite sponging mani to do.  It's so much fun :D

Friday - I went to a new-to-me nail supply store with the Fashionista and spent a lot of money lol. Then I went to work and worked some more. After work I went to Target (again with the Fashionista) and spent more money.  I came home, ate pizza, drank wine and caught up on my TV shows with my hubby.  Then I crashed... hard!  I slept like a rock last night haha.  Here is a pic of my haul from Cali Beauty Supply...

So many goodies!!  I'm thinking I'll do a full haul post sometime next week, if you're interested?  Lemme know!

Somewhat of a lengthy post and I thank you for sticking it out hahaha...

Until next time!
