It’s been quite a while since my last post. I’d like to say something profound and apologize, but I’m just going to be honest here. I didn’t feel like doing my nails, and when I did feel like doing them, I didn’t feel like writing. And you know what? I’m not sorry. A friend of… Continue reading Rest to Rise
Before you read, I want you to keep this in mind: racism is not political. Anti-racism is not political. You can change your political affiliation at a whim, but I cannot change the color of my skin or the way people treat me because of it. I have long felt that it “wasn’t my place”… Continue reading Not Black Enough. Not White Enough.
Why is it that every weekday lasts about 72 hours, but when you're geared up to enjoy the weekend...you blink and it's gone? Can't I get one single weekend where I'm like ok then, I think that's enough of that. Work, here I come refreshed and ready. Hah. This weekend, I learned a few things.… Continue reading Taste the Rainbow
I got word today that all schools in my city will be closing for the remainder of the school year. It was coming, I know. It's necessary if we're still trying to #flattenthecurve, but I'm angry. It's not because I have to keep my kids home- they're my people, I am their safe place, I… Continue reading The Next Right Thing
How is everyone handling the craziness that is life at the moment? The sheer absurdity of having everything feel absolutely normal and all topsy-turvy at the same time? I’m currently working my normal hours from home while watching my three hellions and homeschool starts tomorrow for my oldest as well. Yaaaayyyyy. I’m excited for him… Continue reading Please Stop Licking the Dog
You guys, so much to say and so little time! Sparkle has a new top coat that they're testing out, have you heard of it? It's Glossy Top Coat 2.0, and I got to try it out and I'm smitten. The first time I used it, I'm not sure if I put it on too… Continue reading New Top Coat, Who Dis?
A couple months back, I was on the hunt for some new content, and you know how Christmas time is. Totally spendy. I won't tell you how much I spent, because honestly, I don't know, but the sales y'all. The sales. This isn't just for nails either, this is all around! I mean I even… Continue reading A Little Nail Flair
I'm not sure who all was around for the first part of this hamster tale (spoiler- the juicy stuff is in the comments), but Harry and Moana are at it again! These little pygmy things are by far the absolute worst furry pets you could find. Want a pet that looks so wonderfully fluffy and… Continue reading Hamster Saga Take 2
Do you have a go-to color or color family? When you're stressed, upset, over all the noise or just colored out, do you reach for anything in particular? This week has been hard for me, but at the same time I felt pressure to really dive into the Christmas manis before I ran out of… Continue reading The Safe Word is Pink
I'm going to vent for a second. Do you ever have a day where you don't really feel like doing something and so when you force yourself, every single facet of it goes wrong? Yeah, hi! Me. Last night. To start off with, my peel base application from the previous week was shoddy and too… Continue reading Fails and Fixes
