extra sparkle.

***this post was written on thursday afternoon... but! I still wanted to share it with you...  if you try this out i want to see pictures!!! 

my first task since spring break started, a whole 3 hours ago, was to pain my nails.  nursing school isn't polished-nails-friendly. unless of course it's clear, or a boring shade of nude.  you see.  i'm a girl that always used to go get her nails done (usually with my mom) so, i'm not particularly good at doing my own.  and really, i don't enjoy it. at all.  but today i was determined to paint my nails. and like it.  but didn't have a color that I really loved(because i always go get my nails done), so i mixed my own instead.   

The peach color is too translucent, so I added some white polish, and got a perfect light peach.(definitely different than boring nude)  

and I added some sparkle, just because ;) 

i mixed my polish in a plastic cup, then used the brush from the white polish to blend the two and paint my nails.  (i don't usually use the white anyway.) 

annnd... 4 days later, a picture of the final result. (plus a lady bug, and some drift wood...)

to say this weekend was busy is an understatement.  finally seeing friends that i love, watching boyfriend play soccer, thrifting with mom, time with boyfriend and his family, dad's birthday, a day trip to the eastern shore (complete with crabs and hush puppies!) and topped it all of with watching Pirates of the Caribbean 1&2 last night with my family. 
 love that family of mine.
  pictures soon to come of this crazy weekend!

happy monday!

  1. Cute idea to spiff up the nailpolish. Followed the blog, hope you don’t mind. And who knows, maybe you’ll visit me someday too.
