Another One Bites The Dust

Ok, no, it’s not me…at least not yet. Earlier this month I got a wordpress notification congratulating me for 5 years of blogging. 5 years, really?! It feels strange saying this because it doesn’t feel like I’ve been at this that long. I keep thinking about just shutting down my blog altogether, but I know that I will miss it terribly. It is still fun most of the time especially now that I am posting less and just doing it when I want to. It feels like so many of the OG bloggers that got me excited about blogging have retired and it makes me feel like it’s the end of an era. While I was contemplating all of this, I started doing a “festive” mani and realized I had done the exact same manicure 5 years ago. It was kind of funny so I wanted to share it with you guys.

Oh, remember when I thought flash equaled good lighting? Hahaha! I do have to admit that my stamping was pretty good even as a newb, don’t you think? I know that my hand position and lighting left a lot to be desired, but I don’t think it was tooooo horrible. Or am I wrong?

And here is a polish that we all know and love: China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I actually couldn’t find my old bottle of this so I had to go out and buy it when I decided I wanted to do this mani. It’s such a gorgeous polish in my opinion.

And here is my full mani using Konad plate M60 and the white Konad polish. I did a crappy job of clean up since I still have some traces of the white polish on my skin–so please excuse that. I actually feel that my stamping was crisper on the first manicure, but that’s due to the white polish. I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but I feel like the Konad stamping polishes have gone down in quality. If you know of a super awesome white stamping polish, please let me know!

So, I leave you with this little blast from the past and hope that you stick around. I know I don’t post very often and I know that a lot of my old readers don’t stop by often because of this, but I just want to tell you all that I truly appreciate every visit, every comment and every like. You guys are what made blogging fun and I hope that you still enjoy reading my blog.

With much love and best wishes for 2017,

  1. Hope you stick around! First Scrangie, then Kellie Gonzo… I don’t think I could take not having my faves (incl you) here swatching for us! Beautiful swatches. And yeah: LOVE me some China Glaze Ruby Pumps. #Classic

    1. Thank you, Lauri. It’s an honor to even be mentioned in the same sentence as Scrangie and Kellie. They were two of the bloggers that I adored since the beginning.

  2. You’re not wrong…that stamping from back in the day is CRISP, yo!
    I may need to go buy this, too, because how do I not have it?
    I am glad this blog let us “find” one another! 🙂

    1. Word. I am so happy I got to meet you and the other girls because of this blog. Now I’m just jealous that all of you will get to hang out in Jersey for Mae’s b-day. I spent my holiday break watching all the seasons of Air Disasters which basically guarantees that I will never get on a plane again. I guess I’ll have to settle with you driving down to OC as usual or us roadtriping to see Jessica or maybe Nicole. LOL

  3. I love how the sparkly red peeks out. It reminds me of a harlequin doll that I had when I was little.
    I don’t want you to stop. You have such pretty nails and hands. Pair that with your great sense of humor, and you have a fun blog. If you think about it, you are pointing the next bloggers in a good direction.
    I have also hit some of your blog sales.
    Love you a lot. Baby, don’t go. I would be sad.

  4. Hey Lady! I deleted Facebook from my phone so I don’t log in anymore (FB is a time-sucker!)
    But I enjoy your blog, your talent, and your beautiful nails. You inspire me to try new colors and to enjoy the process of a nice manicure.
    Tell our girls I said hi!
