Girly Bits - OVbunEN and an exciting announcement!

Hey guys!  I know, I'm a super bad blogger, but my motivation is so low right now.  BUT, I do have an exciting announcement (to me at least!)  if you want to scroll down further.


(So sad that I get better pics from my Galaxy S3.....and I'M SORRY ABOUT MY CUTICLES!  YUCK, YUCK, YUCK!  Please don't unfollow me!  This winter has not been good on my skin!)

This is Girly Bits OVbunEN.  I'm sorry, but the name is just too cute!  It reminds me of Cirque's Lullaby or a pastel version of Cirque's XX.  There's so much going on in here I couldn't possibly list it all!  First off, it's a clear base with micro holo glitter.  It also has two sizes of blue hexes, light blue hexes in two sizes and mini squares, two sizes of light pink hexes and circle glitter, two sizes of a darker pink (leaning purple) hexes, two sizes of white hexes (I think??)  and the surprise of two sizes of pastel yellow hexes and holo diamond glitter.  I swear there's so iridescent glitter in here, but it doesn't seem to want to catch my eye (but, ah ha!  I knew I was right!  There's iridescent bar glitter which you can see in some of these pics).  The pastel yellow glitter was a surprise.  I thought it was white.



These next two pics are from my actual camera, I mean come on!  Effin camera!!


I applied one coat over OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  I did a sort of dab/stroke technique, and found it worked well.  This is so glitter dense you could end up with way too much on your nails, so thin coats are a must.  I did find the glitter liked to piggyback on each other if too much was applied.  I think this would be a great polish to use for a glitter sandwich.  Reminds me a bit of DL Glitter in the Air.

And I totally feel like Rach cause I found a polish that has something to do with my big announcement!  (In case your wondering, Rach is great at picking a polish that has something to do with a series premiere, or a movie or band she's going to see).  I might have also bought this polish just for this big announcement because.......

I'M PREGNANT!

Sorry, I might be a wee bit excited!

I'm at 13 weeks today.  We found out on Dec 18th, and decided to tell our families for Christmas/Christmas Eve.  We even got the reactions on video.  His family's reaction was super awkward....about 10 minutes of uncomfortable awkwardness cause NOBODY got it (we wrapped up a "grandpa" type present).  But my mom got it in less than two seconds and it was instant tears from her.

Anyways, I actually wore this polish for a dinner outing with my cousins to surprise them with the news.

This is obviously the reason for my abscense of late.  I have no energy or motivation for much of anything besides laying on the couch.  Though, yesterday, I actually enjoyed my first cup of coffee for the first time in 2 months!  That was exciting!

Anyways, I hope you all have a great day, and like I am leaving a lot of my first trimester symptoms behind me, and hopefully I will be posting more!

  5. Congratulations! That is so exciting! I just found out recently that my sister is pregnant too. She's about 10 weeks, so not far behind from you. The polish you're wearing couldn't be more perfect. It's super pretty and the name is adorable.

  6. Gahhhhhhh I am so so excited for you!! I dropped off the face of the polish earth when I was in my first trimester because I could barely function! Hopefully you start feeling more like a "normal" human being soon! Just wait until he/she starts kicking - pure magic. :) Congratulations!!!!

  7. Congratulations! Very exciting. I know so many people who have gotten pregnant in the last few months... I'd better be careful! ;) I hope you are feeling better soon, and thanks for sharing the happy news. Oh, and I really do like the nail polish too... But of course that isn't as exciting as baby news.

  14. Congratulations! I used a manicure to share my baby news on my blog last year. (Your polish choice is way more specific, though!) Take care of yourself and your little one, blogging comes after that. ;)
