Snow storm 2012! Finally!

Hello there!  So we made it to our show last night, and Dallas Green killed it!  He is even more amazing live then on his record, if that could even be possible!  He is such an amazing artist....and his music has gotten me through some really tough times in my life.  I'm so glad I was able to make it!

Anyways, the big snow storm finally hit.  Must have been sometime after I went to bed at 1:00.  My poor boyfriend had to work a graveyard shift (and after the show no less!), so I had to drop him off at work before coming home.  And I woke up to this, what you see below.  Actually now that I look at the picture, it looks pretty underwhelming, but trust me when I say it's about 8 inches (that's what she said....zing!).  We don't usually get this much in the Seattle area, so it's super fun when we do!  I think I'm going to go out later to my parents house with the dog and sled down their driveway....it was where all the kids in the neighborhood would come to sled.  Ahh, to be a kid again!

 Anyways, as I'm sitting here scrubbing off the glitter from yesterdays mani (why, oh why didn't I use the foil method?!?), I will show you this beaut from Zoya.


Ahh, Zoya Nimue.  Is that really a name....anybody else meet a Nimue?  Really, they came up with a Nimune, and STILL don't have an Angie?!?  Common Zoya.....make an awesome polish with my name!

Now, yall know how much I love my Zoya, but I must have gotten a bad bottle of Nimue. The brush was wonky, and the formula wasn't the perfect formula I've come to expect from Zoya. The application was quite patchy. I know you can't tell from the pics, but there were some bald spots even after 2 coats. It was by no means terrible, but worth noting. Out of all the Zoya's I own, I think this is the first that gave me some trouble.


Now as far as the color goes, I love it! It's a color that I would consider "mature", and what I mean by that is its a fun color that I could see a grandma wearing. Lol....since I'm heading in that direction, I think it's perfect for me!  Since I'm not quite grandma age (though my bf likes to call me that....lol for inside jokes!), I added some fun glitter as an accent.  It's WnW's It's All in the Cut.  I don't know why I haven't worn it sooner, cause it's really something.  Small micro lilac glitter with large pink hex glitter.  Super fun, and I think it compliments Nimune very well!

Can I make a little gripe about blogger?  They recently added a little reply button to comment which I was so excited about!  I was having a hard time trying to figure out how to add my Disqus profile to my blog (uh....still can't figure it out!), and this feature came just in time. BUT, when you reply to someone....they still don't know about it!  I like with disqus that you get an email with the reply, cause I like reading reply posts, and I don't expect anyone to come back to my blog to see if *I've* replied to them.  So common Blogger....send an email when the blogger has replied to a blog post....or at least something!  End rant!

  4. I had to comment because you mentioned Dallas Green! I love City & Colour and you are right he is a-maz-zing live. I saw him about a year ago right before Little Hell came out and I cannot wait to see him again.

    I also love your purple mani and agree with you on the name of the Zoya Polish. It is odd.

    1. Yay, another Dallas fan! He is so fantastic, I mean his lyrics touch a part of you that you didn't know you had. And his voice? Perfection!

  7. Oooh, I have a post coming up that highlights almost this exact same color. I'll be sure to reference this nail polish / post if that's okay with you.

  8. I agree that Zoya has really gone a bit nuts with their names recently, like throwing letters against the wall and seeing what sticks. But to throw in the nerd factor, Nimue was Merlin's "girlfriend" in the King Arthur stories. Still not the most common name, but at least has a bit of history.
