Dollish Polish 1-UP




I know it’s just the middle of June, but is anyone else already excited about having a long weekend for the 4th of July? I find that I basically live for long weekends, and I am already planning to do absolutely nothing but lounge around in my apartment. I will not let anyone rope me into doing holiday stuff and will just be lazy for 3 days straight. I’m so looking forward to it! So today being a Monday and my least favorite day of the week, I decided to wear a polish that just makes me insanely happy when I wear it: Dollish Polish 1-UP. Why would a polish make me insanely happy? Well, dear reader, because it brings me back to the late 80’s when my parents bought us a Nintendo console. This was huge for us because we were fairly broke and we had to pick between getting a VCR or a Nintendo. Well, of course there was no contest. I played Super Mario Bros for hours and hours and hours until I managed to pass the whole game which was the crown achievement of my childhood. Anyway…now you know why this polish makes me happy!

It’s so unique and of course I love it even harder because it’s Super Mario Bros themed. This was a super fantastic present from Amanda so a million thanks for the awesome polish. I was playing the new SMB on my Wii this weekend, but I’m pretty rusty and part of me misses the original in all its 8-Bit glory. I remember the first time I figured out that you could get unlimited 1-UP’s when you jumped on the duck shell as it was coming down the stairs. Remember that trick?

What a fun game! None of the crazy shooting, Grand Theft Auto, Halo bullshit of nowadays. I sound like some old lady right now, don’t I? haha You’ll still like me, right? Well, thank you so much for stopping by today and for joining me in my hatred for Mondays. Talk to you soon!

    I love your story behind why you love this polish….Mario will always be the best. I remember my first introduction to video games, the N64, and my childhood was forever changed 🙂 I still will go back to it and play all my old favorites!

      I feel so old when people started out with the N64. lol I never really got into the N64 as much. I think after the Super Nintendo I stopped playing video games as much.

    Well, I am 1000% on board with basically everything in this post, lol.
    I was *just* thinking about how July 4th is “almost” here and wondering what my plans will be. It really doesn’t matter, as long as it involves a 3-day weekend. I LOVE three-day weekends…they are literally some of my favorite things on earth.
    I remember when we got a Nintendo! It was on this little table in my room and my brother and I would play Super Mario Bros. and/or Duck Hunt, since they came with the console. 🙂 I think it’s still in the house, actually.
    I love this combo! I definitely support happy polish for unhappy Mondays. I’m wearing a bright-ass pink (for making up last week’s TLR, haha) right now (the pink from the WnW Saved By the Bell collection) and I am just loving it. Best part of my Monday so far, lol.

      I hated duck hunt because I was so bad at it. So I remember I would stand like an inch away from the TV and still miss. It was very frustrating. lol I think we much have thrown away our first Nintendo. Remember having to blow on the cartridges to make them work? lol

    Awesome combo! Indie brand GamerGloss is coming out with a whole Super Mario collection June 20th and I think you should check it out 🙂

    I wanted a Nintendo so bad I could taste it but my parents refused. So for a school fundraiser when I saw a Nintendo console in the prize catalog I was determined to win that bitch! I sold 40 boxes of candy bars. No one believed I actually did it. I was so proud of myself… GO LITTLE JACQUI! and then me and my big brother played smb endlessly. Ahhh those were the days!

      This is my favorite comment for as long as I can remember. I would savor the shit out of that Nintendo, That a weird way to put it but I bet that you totally get it. lol

      Hell yeah! 8-bit all the way. 😀

  9. 18 June, 2014 at 8:54 am

    8-bit is the only way to go!! Playing Mario on that console was the only way I’ve ever played anything ever. Nothing after that didn’t even come close! Duck Hunt sucked ass though, I can share your painful memory of shooting and missing all the ducks :DD

    I love how the glittler looks on the dark polish..

    I cant remember discovering tricks on this specific game, but i do remember discovering a shortcut in mario 2.. Idk HOW i found a gate in the 2nd world that took you to 3 doors and each of them sent you to a different level (4th, 5th and 6th).
    I think it was my geekest moment eva.l i still remember dancing and yelling i found something to my little brother, who was a total pro playing every single game (i hated him for that)…

    I still temember contra’s cheat to get 30 lives: up up down down left right left right b a b a select start
