Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know I’m getting older because I now associate this holiday with eating instead of drinking. Yup, a free corned beef dinner at mom and dads sounds better than a crowded bar. I live in a college town and it’s spring break right now so most of the students are gone. If I went out, I would probably feel at home since the places would be filled with my fellow ‘townies’ instead of young’ens. But, it’s likely I’ll eat a nice family dinner, do my 30 day ab challenge exercises and call it a night. OMG, I have to say… my ab challenge is getting so hard! Here’s what I have to do. I’m up to 75 situps, 100 crunches, 42 lower ab/leg raises and 65 seconds of plank today. Phew! I have to break it up into two workouts per day now… cuz 75 situps at once is a killer! Enough whining! Let’s look at my st patrick’s day nails…
I’m wearing AVON Don’t be Jaded as my base color. Yes, I wore it yesterday too for my other st paddys design. I’ve noticed a weird pattern that I follow- if I get a new cream polish I like to wear it a few times right away. It kinda makes me feel bad if I get a lovely new polish, only try it once, then put it on a shelf and forget about it. I like to cherish my new bottles and use them a lot so they know they are loved. If inanimate objects have feelings I like to think that my polish bottles are happy and feel appreciated. 🙂 Weird? Yes, but that’s why you like me!
I also sponged some army green Ulta nail polish on my tips too, but you probably can’t tell since the colors blend well together. Then I added a coat of a Pretty Woman glitter topper. I’ve never tried Pretty Woman brand before. I picked it up at Rite Aid recently and I think the name of this one is GREEN. Very original huh? 🙂 I like that there’s a variety of glitter sizes in there… glitters like that tend to spread well for me. I only needed one coat and I got some nice even glitter coverage with it.
I also decorated my ring fingers as accent nails. Maybe you recognize my clovers ? They are some of the diy decals that I hand-painted over the weekend in this post. I stuck my clover decals on and then slathered some Seche Vite topcoat over top. Like always, I love the the nice smooth finish and quick-dry shine that I get from my bff Seche!
Do your nail polishes have feelings too? Or is it only mine?
