R.I.P. MONEY AND NAIL

20180306_084226.jpg

The weekend was solid. I had to move my Friday night plans, due to do a hurricane-like storm that they keep using overly exaggerated weather terms like “bomb cyclone” to describe. Don’t even get me started on that, I’m sure I could write a series of posts on how that term really gets under my skin. I mean, the storm did a lot of damage to the coast, as it coincided with the high tides. But still, let’s stop making up crazy weather terms. Don’t go chasin’ bomb cyclones, just call them storms or hurricanes like we’re supposed to.  MOVING ON, Andy and I had a very belated Valentine’s Day steak dinner at Abe & Louie’s in Boston. We’re not Valentine’s Day people, but any excuse for a steak dinner, we’re on board. So we ventured there on Saturday night. I got the surf & turf with a filet mignon topped with crab. It was delicious! Afterwards, we went out for some more drinks. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we got our taxes done and got screwed because we’re married. Fun! We should get our marriage annulled for the tax break. Also, Andy’s car died in the parking lot at the tax place. So we had to get it towed. The steak was a real saving grace for us. Praise Jebus for steak!

On Sunday, we went to see Black Panther. It was really good! But we were stuck behind some family that thought it would be a grand idea to take all 14 toddlers to a PG-13 movie. Don’t worry folks, there is a special place in hell reserved for these kind of people that don’t understand how toddlers work and think they will sit thru a 135 minute movie meant for adults. There is also a special place in hell for the old man that decided he needed to loudly narrate the whole fucking movie to the theater as it was happening.

Oh yeah, I injured my toe a few months back. (If you get grossed out easily, you best stop here!) Not entirely sure how I injured it. But I think it had to do with wearing these very cute, but extremely uncomfortable shoes to Boston Comic Con over the summer.  I got a blister on the middle toe of my left foot. I don’t think it ever fully went away, until it recently popped. I guess the fluid went under my nail. I thought the stain on the nail would just grow out after a while. Not so much. My nail FELL OFF since a new nail is growing back. I’ve never had this happen before and I’m thoroughly freaked out/grossed out. My question is, why couldn’t my pinky toe be sacrificed to the nail gods instead?! That I could deal with a bit better. 

It doesn’t look as bad as I would envision something like this looking, but it sucks. It doesn’t hurt or anything, which is a plus. But it’s just very frustrating that it’s going to take over a year to grow back. I have my honeymoon coming up. So I’ll have to wear a band-aid over it. I also can’t take nail vitamins, as biotin breaks out my skin. So I’ve been using  keratin oil on it twice a day, hoping it will help it grow. I also have been keeping it covered up just in case. Not sure what else to do at this point. Does Lee make press on nails for your feet? hahaha

TAXES, NACHOS, NETFLIX, AND SANGRIA!

2016-02-29 12.32.38

I finally got my taxes done over the weekend. I’m happy to report I’m getting mo’ money back than last year. I also got to see Erin over the weekend. We skipped the sushi and went straight for the nachos and sangria. After some dinner and drinks, we went back to my place to do our nails and watch Fuller House. We blasted through quite a few episodes, then I finished up the season on Sunday. I have no restraint when it comes to binge-watching on Netflix. It will be the same story when OITNB comes back.

I have to admit, I was a little scared to watch Fuller House. A lot of reviews were negative, which I totally don’t get after seeing it. I think it’s just those people that have to crap on things to make themselves feel cooler. I actually really liked the re-boot. Can I just have everything in Kimmy Gibbler’s closet, please?! I really want the bacon and eggs scarf, the cupcake scarf, and the cat kimono. I may have already found and purchased the Betsey Johnson Rubix Cube bag…ooops! To my defense, I need it for 80’s prom and I got a good deal.

I’ve only tried the cream and Junior Mints so far, and I love both. I’ll try to remember to post a mani using the nail colors when I can.

I JUST WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT

image

I wanted to take a moment and admire my manicure! This is probably my favorite Jamberry  manicure so far. I used Friday Flannel wrap with a Hello Kitty gray glitter polish over an Avon graphite gray. I also used the Jamberry gel TruShine base coat with top coat. The flannel wrap is more on the matte side and I wanted to make it shiny. I also wanted my polish to last longer. I’m loving this combo so far!

If you’re interested in learning more about Jamberry, let me know!  I became a consultant earlier this year. Http://germana.jamberrynails.net

JAMBERRY FALL 15 CATALOG IS OUT!

Sorry, but it’s shameless plug time! I became a Jamberry consultant last spring and this is my first catalog turn-over. There are sooo many new wraps I want, that my Pinterest wishlist is OUT OF CONTROL! I ordered the new gel nail system, and am excited to try it out. I’ve been meaning for a long time to try a gel system of my own, and now I have one. The system also works with wraps and regular nail color, just not sure they last quite as long as the gel polish though.But I’ll admit I haven’t researched it much. I’m just excited to have a gel system of my own!

With the release of the catalog, they also released some holiday wraps as well. GUYS, THEY HAVE CAT WRAPS! I mean, how cute are these?!!

They also gave me some candy, so AWESOME!
