Indeed. I didn't have a very good day, today. It wasn't a total bingetastic blowout but it wasn't pretty. I made some bad choices and ended up downing a bit more than 2000 calories for the day. Bleargh! Why the hell do I do this to myself? What is my damage? Maybe one of these days I will figure it out. I'll let you know if I do.

Today was a pretty day. It was a bit hazy but the sun was warm. It got up to about 72 degrees. the wind was chill coming in through my windows but it was refreshing. I figure that by early next month it should be safe to get flowers in the ground. I can't wait to grow them, this year. I didn't get to, last year and I really missed it. It is so lovely to sit outside on a warm Summer evening and admire bright, colourful blooms and their sweet fragrance.

We went out yesterday so that I could pop into Sally's to pick up a few things. I went in for base and top coat and some French tip guides. I came out with base coat... Two bottles. I just had to get and try Orly ridge filler as I have a few ridged nails and a bottle of my fave China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base. I also got a bottle of Seche. While I was there, I found Out the Door top coat. I decided to pick it up and give it a shot, too. And I finally bought a bottle of polish thinner. Goopy polish drives me batty. Now I can deal with it. :D

As I was sifting around, I found the clearance table and snapped up a bottle of Orly Enchanted Forest. It was marked down to $3.99. It was on my want list so I was happy to get a bargain. :D I Also got a couple of hair accessories that were buy one, get one free. They didn't have any French guides so I went to Walgreen's to see if they had any. They didn't. But I ended up getting an eyeliner, a brow gel, a couple of bottles of Sinful Colors polish and some cute nail art decals. Third stop was CVS where I finally found my guides. I went out for three little items and ended up blowing far more money than I intended. I feel guilty. But I also have to admit that I kind of enjoyed myself. It was a nice treat, doing a little shopping that way.

When we got home, we had dinner then I did a fresh manicure. I decided to use Enchanted Forest. It is a pretty, warm deep green. It isn't blackened or vampy. It is clearly green. It is a nice, opaque cream that only took two coats. It was a tad goopy, I suspect it had been sitting a while but it still applied okay. I topped with Out the Door then applied a couple of those cute decals. I used Seche to top the nails I put the decals on.

I am not mad about Orly ridge filler base. It didn't really fill and smooth any more than China Glaze base. And it was kind of a pain in the brisket to apply. Out the Door was also not all that impressive. It dries a lot more slowly than Seche and doesn't have the lovely glossy shine that Seche does. I'll use up the Orly base and Out the Door over time and I won't be re purchasing them. Orly Enchanted Forest. Taken indoors with flash, early this morning. Before a bunch of housework. It still looks as good, this evening. :D This is two coats over Orly ridge filler base and topped with Out the Door top coat. I like the little decals. They were fun and easy to use. :D They are so cute and affordable, I will definitely buy and use more of them. :D
Why is it I always have a pile of housework to do when I have just done my nails? lol I had a busy morning, scrubbed the bathroom, swept, vacuumed, polished furniture. My house is tidy and clean and everything shines. I can take an easy day tomorrow and do a few things I want to get done.
Tomorrow is Tuesday. V returns. Finally! It's been a long time. :D


  1. Love the decals, love the color (though it mostly looks black on my screen, I can see a wee bit o'the green peeking through on the pinky), and giggled at the use of the comment 'considerable ass' below. I always have liked your sense of humor. Glad you had a pretty good day overall.

  2. Well, when you can't hide it, might as well talk about it. ^^

  3. I love how your nails came out!

    Don't worry too much about your not so good day. Just make sure it doesn't turn into a not so good week!! =D

  4. We all have days like that, want to eat everything that can't escape. Your nails look gorgeous. I didn't realize that green nails could look so pretty.

  5. Little Miss,thank you so much. You are right, I didn't want it turning into a week. :D

    SM, hee hee... Eat anything that can't escape. lol Thank you. I am surprised at some of the colours I am really loving. :D :D
