NOTD, Gets, and Times with Anita

Hello again readers~

Okay, it has been a while hasn't it? I was going to do this post Monday, though since Anita left that day I didn't feel like it. Tuesday I wasn't up for blogging, and the past two days I was hanging out with my friend Kirsti, so today is the day~

First off here's the swatch of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Blue Streak. It is a turquoise blue color, with a metallic-like finish. It's a beautiful color, but I don't think it suited me at all. It dried so fast!

Two weeks ago, this was my manicure. Essie Shrine of the Times over Essie Over the Edge. It was a little disappointing. Over the Edge is a metallic dark smokey grey color with dark and silver shimmer. When Shrine of the Times is layered over black, it glows vibrantly with red, orange, yellow, and green. When it was layered over, Over the Edge, it was almost always a fiery red color.

The only time it was easy to see the yellow and green effects, was if the nails were pointed down.


This past week, I have been wearing Wet n Wild Craze in Nocturnal. I was incredibly pleased with this color, a wonderful dark navy blue creme. It was a little hard to work with, since it moved a bit, and I had to work a bit to get the color you see, but it was worth it.

Now onto the times with Ani~

I was so happy to see her, it has been so long! And as soon as she got here, I got ready and we were off~ We went all over the place to go to Asian markets and shops, and though we didn't buy too much, it was so much fun!

And since I wanted to check out the sale at Hot Topic, we went to the mall. Though I didn't find anything there, we popped into Forever 21 for a bit (and she got the most ADORABLE sweater ever!) and I got myself a cleansing mask, new nose strips (that work SO much better than the chocolate ones), star earrings, and a new nail polish.

We had so much fun, and ate at my grandmothers house for dinner, and goofed off together. I miss her so much, but it shouldn't be too much longer till we can see each other again~

Now for a bit of a sad post...

My dog Pippy (Humphrey) had a sort of a stroke... it was so upsetting, because he already has a mild form of dementia and gets confused sometimes, but all day yesterday he was wobbling on his feet, and falling over, and he refused to go outside, and peed all over the place and it was just so sad... Luckily the vet said that his lungs and heart are great for an older dog, and he could simply snap back to normal and if he stopped eating/drinking/going to the bathroom that it would be a bad side...

Good news though, after he slept a lot yesterday, he got up and walked around and only stumbled once, and ate and drank a lot which is great! And last night he only got up once to go to the bathroom. And today, he's walking like normal (though he still hops a bit, but that's from his arthritis in his hips) and he was eating a lot, begging for food, running around, and didn't stumble or fall once! I'm hoping that means he's already snapped back, though I'll have to watch over him for a while longer to make sure.

Thanks for reading~


  1. Black and red are my go to nail polish color.

  2. Well then the Over the Edge and Shrine of the Times combo would be perfect for you~ :D I am a cool color lover, so with there being so much warm coloring it wasn't for me.
