I'm Baaaack!

I'm back. For real. I have so many pictures and post ideas it's not even funny. Since it's late and I'm exhausted, I'm going to start with the biggest news first. I finally- no, FINALLY- got a manicure to last a week. The past few manis have been going long and strong. I'm currently typing with a mani from last THURSDAY. The secret for me is getting my nails cut really short. I go to a new nail salon (buh-bye, Tanya), and they don't try to guilt me when I tell them to cut my nails down. The result is a long-lasting, pretty mani.

I was reuniting with a special someone last weekend, so I decided to wear the nail polish I wore on our first date- Ulta's Eye-Popping Poppy. I wanted to do something different, a first-date remix if you will, so I had the manicurist put a sparkly clear coat on my ring finger. The polishes are both red-orange, but I don't think it's showing up as well with my janky camera. These pictures were taken on day 8 of the manicure. Yes, the pointer finger on the right hand is chipped, but overall, it held up well.

I have lots of other stuff to post about (student nails, an orly plastics review, wedding nails), so keep checking back!


  1. I am so happy you are posting again! I love that you put the sparkly shade on your RING finger for a romantic reunion. This post makes me want to try an orangey-red for the first time; don't have one yet in my growing collection.

  2. LOL I didn't even pick the RING finger, the manicurist did. Red-orange/orangey-red will look nice on you!You must try it!!
