Yay for Sunday!!

I was finally able to sleep in today.  After my weird sleeping schedule of taking a short nap at 8, only to wake up at 11pm to drive my bf to work, I finally had a day to sleep in.  And what time did I sleep in till?  8am, lol!  Yeah, that's late for me.

My bf is in the public works department of a local city in our area so when it dumped all this snow on us earlier this week, he was the lucky one that got to work the graveyard shift driving the plow/sander truck.  Well he does not have 4wheel drive, so I was the lucky one that got to drive him to work.  Ahh, the things you do for love!


Anywhoo....today I'm wearing something not all that exciting, but I quite liked it this time around.  This is OPI's Mermaid Tears from the Pirates collection last year.  I was so excited for this color when it came out last year, but was really disappointed when I put it on.  I just wasn't crazy for it (like my unexpected favorite Stranger Tides).  But this time around I quite like the way it looks.  BUT, it gives me a terrible case of lobster hands, but whateves.  It also had a very strange formula, that required 3 coats for what you see here.


For those of you that own this, you know these are not color accurate pics.  My camera is super sucking at the moment, as you can tell by my craptastic pictures, and blurriness.  I don't think it likes the natural overcast Washington light out there right now.  Anyways, this is a much brighter, almost sea foam green.  I think this would look fab with some gold glitter, and I was going to do that, but then I became way too lazy, lol!  Oh, and would you look at my cuticles?  Such a mess, that's what happens when you play out in the snow with no gloves on!  Shame on me!!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday.  And I wanted to thank all you guys that read my blog.  It means a lot to know that you read what I have to say.  I know I've been guilty of not reading content, and just commenting on pictures alone, but then I sort of feel like an assbag when I realize I did that.  I use my blog as sort of a diary of different events in my life and to know that you guys actually read it, means a lot ot me!!  Thanks guys!

  1. I don't notice the lobster hands unless you point them out - I was just drooling over the color. Gorgeous!

  3. Mmmm, sleeping in is the best. I've been doing a lot of it lately and I'm kind of spoiling myself for when I have to get back on a real schedule but oh well, we must enjoy these small pleasure while we have them. I like the vintage feel of this color, reminds me of 1960's kitchenaid appliances.

  4. I was excited for the color too but you're right, the 3 coat junk puts a kink in the love spell -- it does look great though, and definitely a cool wintery color. I wonder if some quick-drying drops would make the process less of a pain?
