Gold GLitz

No Top Coat
One Coat glitter for real. This has nice coverage. Milani Gold Glitz for the win! I used Seche Base coat and two coats of glitter though really one would probably have been plenty.

Jello Man

This is Jello Man. I asked my daughter to decorate him she says the twizzler across his forehead is a sweatband.  Below is the recipe it's pretty beat up but oh well. The mold I use was free one year I have not seen it in the stores since. I have seen some gingerbread men molds though that would probably work. Please Click on the recipe to enlarge it for reading. Peace hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! oh one more thing the kids think we should make a red jello man at Halloween so we have a Zombie Jello Man.

Time flys!

So today ended up being a snow day for my daughter and hubby. I did manage to get two pies and cupcakes done but that's about it. We took pups out for a brief family walk. The pups do not like the snow. Also it is so cold out! Tomorrow is super busy for me but I am hoping after the jello salads are made I can sit back and do my nails for Thanksgiving Day. Boo Bear will be making the stuffing it's going to be so yummy. Peace

First Snow

First snow! Can feel the holiday in the air. This week is a busy week. Today was tackle every piece of laundry day. Get it done put away then glare at anyone who makes any big laundry messes. I started my day though with a me only time and gave myself the head to toe spa treatment minus the mani and pedi that will be tomorrow. Ok am off to iron hubbys shirts .. I hate ironing but he insists on 100 percent cotton. I look at it though as putting my stamp on him. Pretty sure he is the only guy with an ironed cotton shirt where he works. I bought a couple of new polishes this weekend at Fred Meyer will share one hopefully tomorrow if I have time. Peace.

All Spuds fault!

Hurt like a S.O.B. sorry I know it is small but it's a pain. Gross Pics to some but to me I think it is healing nicely for a bad burn. Not sure which bugs me more the burn or the stained nails. Kinda a toss up. Or wait could be that my age is showing this is my right hand it has gotten the most abuse for 48 years heh.

Accidentally burnt my right hand think it was Friday. It's getting better but the last thing I want near it is nail polish remover. Few more days and I think I will be okie dokie. It was a nasty steam burn. Asked my hubby to put some mac and cheese in the microwave and he didn't vent it. He felt terrible when I pulled it out and Owie. Stupid move on my part not being careful with a hot mic'd dish of mac and cheese. And he got a small lecture about venting food. Lucky for me we have some betadine around. Tossed my hand under cold water to numb the pain, ice'd it, poured bedadine on it and kept it dry and clean all week. It looks good. Blister is gone and new skin is growing nicely. Not first time i have burned myself probably not the last. Heh, Peace peeps. Daughter just got home and is talking a mile minute I need to go.

Harry Potter

I have been rereading the Harry Potter series and am pretty stoked about the new movie coming out. First I must say I can't even begin to think of what nail design I would do for this or how to go about it. And this morning first thing I saw as I was drinking my coffee was A Day In The Life Of Dollface Wow just Wow. Her tutorial is fantastic.
 Originally my post was going to be my Thanksgiving Menu. Pretty much it is the same every year with small changes here and there. This year I am thinking of adding a Butterbeer to the course.
 Milk, coffee, Sparkling Apple Cider, Crackers/Cheese, variety of favorite cookies, veggie snacks .
 Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Crescent Rolls, Corn, String Beans with Bacon and Lemon, Scalloped Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Jello Man (more on Jello Man on a later post), Cranberry Sauce (has to be Jellied in the can only kind my kids will eat I don't fight it not worth it), Sausage Stuffing balls.
Pumpkin Pie, and this year I think instead of Apple Pie I will do some kind of Apple Crumb and Chocolate Cupcakes. Also going to add Butterbeer I think to the course like I said. Peace, going to go finish my coffee and play a bit of Frontierville.

Insta-Dry Quick Sand

Nothing is dry here. This time that isn't glitter on my nails it's rain. I chopped my nails shorter since Thanksgiving is coming and that means baking and cooking. I prefer shorter nails for that I decided. I love this color even though it is plain. It does have a shimmer to it. I used a base coat then applied two coats of Quick Sand with no top coat. The shine you see is how it is out of the bottle. Peace!

This video is from when Gizmo had his bug bite reaction and we had to stop him from licking and biting his paws. We do not feed the pups bacon I read that bacon can be deadly for Chihuahua's so they get dog treats or apple slices now.

I added a stamp BM03 using Konad Special Nail polish in silver. The pictures are not very clear the sun was not working with me. Boo, (my youngest daughter who is 23) says the design reminds her of dragon scales. Ever read, The Inheritance Cycle series by Christopher Paolini? When I hear Sapphire and Dragon scales his books came to mind. They are a fantastic read. His dragons name is Saphira but still it is what I thought of.

Klean Color

OK so the sun came out and dried up all the rain today. Figured I would try another Klean Color and see if I liked it any better then yesterdays. This Neon Sapphire was opaque on the first coat and dried much faster then the Purple did. I still need to do a little clean up. My paintbrush is wearing down and the polish remover just smeared the polish. Oh well. I like this color it is more me, very much a sapphire blue. I could not seem to get a good picture even though I took like 30 different shots. Crazy!

Pay no attention please to the blur in the left corner. I just noticed it. Umm, that's Gizmo chewing on his bone. Peace

Klean Color Purple

This polish stayed on for maybe 5 minutes. I just did not like it. On the bright side I bought these at the dollar store so I don't feel to bad about not liking them. Klean Color Purple with Klean Color Starry Purple on top.

In case someone skips my post comment I should clarify why I don't like this polish, heh. It is a bit too Barbie for me. If I was younger I would probably love it. Ever see plastic Barbie purple? Well this is a close to that. Also it takes awhile to dry but that could be because the weather here is very damp. We've had record rainfall.
