Black Cherry Backstage Pass

Hey guys,

So remember how I promised an epic post on Wednesday. Well apparently I lied. I somehow found myself volunteering to help out with another Corporate Challenge event tonight. Swiftly ending any chance of being productive (or completely unproductive) tonight. I was so looking forward to an evening of absolutely nothing. Looks like thats going to have to wait until Saturday.... seriously when did I start committing to having a semi-busy schedule. WTF. Sorry. Thats over.

Anyways what I have for you today is probably close to exactly whats going to happen tonight. Oh crap I don't have time to do an entire manicure. So lets throw glitter on it and stretch it out for a day. Lazy? Yes.

This is Color Club Backstage Pass
on top of OPI Black Cherry Chutney.

I was fairly certain I hadn't used this silver & purple chunky glitter before so no time like the present.

time to make a cup of tea and get back to work.

OPI Black Cherry Chutney

Hey guys,

So I'm going to make this pretty short because I have lots to do today (hopefully)
So it's probably for the best that Crosby decided that 8:30 was the perfect time to wake up, even if I was thoroughly convinced otherwise. No worries, he just new that I had lots to do today apparently.

So exciting news! A couple days ago I ordered some A England polish!! I ordered 4 that I can't wait to get and swatch them for you. I ordered Lancelot, Avalon, Dragon, and Lady of the Lake. NPC just started carrying them so needless to say they were mostly sold out by the time I got around to looking.

Today I have a polish that actually was part of the catalyst for this blog. I haven't swatched it before because I honestly thought I had already. Whoops.

This is OPI Black Cherry Chutney.

The colour is exactly that of a fresh black cherry.

Zoya - Isla

Hey guys,

So today Lindsay and I decided to do something exciting. You guys have seen Nail Polish Jewelry right? Well today we were talking about rings and Lindsay was talking about how she wanted a super huge ring for her right hand. (Obviously to balance out her engagement ring so she can stop walking in a circle.... just kidding)

Anyways so we were checking out Etsy and me being me was like F*ck this, I could TOTALLY make those so I googled it did some research and BAM a dream was born.

We're in the process of ordering supplies but if it works out I'll be posting the results.

For my nails for you today I have a gorgeous red.

Secret Circle Balcoin Nails

Hey guys,

So I had wanted to post yesterday but Lindsay and I had decided to drop in to one of Chelsea's Boot Camp classes. Okay so on a side note Chelsea is amazing and totally knows exactly what she's talking about and is a great person to talk to if you want fitness advice. If you're an active person her boot camps are for you
Check her out here
That being said, I am NOT a fit person my physical activity level is pretty much a ZERO. So I am all kinds of sore today. EVERYTHING hurts! I thought I was going to puke or pass out pretty much the whole time.

So thats why I missed posting. I went to bed at 9 cause I'm a huge baby.

So moving on to my nails.
I learned this week that one of my new favourite TV shows was cancelled :( The Secret Circle. So on twitter I noticed a website who wanted people to draw the Balcoin family symbol and they were going to make a video montage and send it to the CW so I though heck it can't hurt.

So with The Balcoin symbol on my thumb this is my Secret Circle/Balcoin manicure

I used OPI DS Magic (seemed appropriate)
OPI DS Temptation (also appropriate)

for the rest of my nails
