Jindie Nails Princess Breath

Jindie Nails Princess Breath




Ahhh…Sunday. I don’t know why, but I just thought of the first time I ever read Sunday Morning by Wallace Stevens and how beautiful and true I found his words. Of course it didn’t hurt that the person reading the poem was the professor I was in total brain love with. If you have never read this poem, do yourself a favor and read it. I also really love Wallace Stevens’ story of really coming into his artistic own later in life. There is still hope for me! haha! Anyway, let me get back to the situation at hand: polish! I found a few swatches of polishes I had never gotten around to posting which is great since I haven’t been doing much ever since I cut my nails down to nubs. I am officially overwhelmed by the amount of polishes that are in my  “to swatch” box, but I just can’t get to them since my freaking nails are refusing to grow. The next time that I start my crack talk about nubbinizing my nails, please talk me out of it.

Today’s beauty is Jindie Nails Princess Breath. It’s such an appropriate name for such a delicate polish. Since I had been swatching some Bettina polishes when I got my bottle of Princess Breath, I decided to apply it over a coat of Bettina Ocean:

Ocean 1I am sure I have mentioned this a million times, but I will say it again: I am a huge fan of Bettina cream polishes. Isn’t this gorgeous?

Princess Breath 2This is two coats of Jindie Nails Princess Breath. I love the delicate green base of this polish and the multi-colored circle glitter just make this a beautiful combination. What I really like about this polish is that even though the base is creamy, it doesn’t completely hide all the gorgeous glitter.

I don’t have much going on today besides laundry and cleaning–if you know me, then you know I’m having a great day! I don’t know what it is about doing laundry, but I just love folding warm and clean towels/bedding. I am also very glad that it’s not scorching hot because I am going to wash my car so I’d rather not do that in 90 degree weather. I am not looking forward to starting another work week, but in the same vein of Wallace Stevens’ poem, without work, we wouldn’t be able truly enjoy and appreciate our days off. Amirite or amirite?

I hope that you’ve had a nice weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will catch up with you soon.

Bettina Nail Enamel – Beautiful Cremes

Bettina Nail Enamel – Beautiful Cremes




A couple of weeks ago, I decided to order a bunch of Bettina polishes. Nine polishes, to be exact, and I learned a very important lesson: always google swatches before you order nail polish online. I ordered the whole Bettina Picnic collection sight unseen and I got an unpleasant surprised: they were all shimmers when I thought I was ordering cremes. Don’t get me wrong, they are pretty, but I really had my heart set on cremes since that is my favorite finish. Don’t worry, though: someone already bought the whole collection from me so they will be getting a lot of love in another home. So I ended up with just 3 of the original 9 polishes but don’t feel bad for me because they are the most amazingly creamy and delicious creams my tan chubby fingers have gotten a hold of in a really long time. Let me show you what I’m talking about.

I was not lying when I said that these three polishes are creme perfection. Just look at them!! They are shiny and smooth and oh so pretty. I can never resist a beautiful creme and the formula on these babies is just amazing. I will forever be a Bettina fan and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of these pretties. For those of you who may be interested, you can order Bettina polishes directly from their authorized US Distributor: Rosame Distributors. Each polish retails for $3.59 and there is a minimum order of 6 bottles but no more than 12. You can check out all the colors at www.bettinacosmetics.com and then you can email Janet at janetmrosado@gmail.com with your choices and she will send you a Paypal invoice. Super easy and super fast!

I’m super happy that I have two days off where I can just be lazy and not have to worry about my horrible job. So after work, my brother and I decided to go to Target to purchase some stuff we needed. Since it was too hot to cook, I ended up picking up this massive sandwich for dinner. This meat behemoth is a Torta Cubana:


This is only HALF of the torta and I only ate half of this before I wanted to die from meat overload. This thing had milanesa (breaded/fried steak), chorizo and ham along with all the various topping. Holy crap this is the King of Sandwiches. It made me think of how much Joey liked sandwiches on Friends which then in turn reminds me of one of my favorite episodes:

LMAO!!! I love how he was trying to shield his sandwich from the car backfire that they initially thought was a gunshot. I miss this show!

Well, I hope you’ve had a nice day today.  In case you don’t follow me on FB, I am giving away a bottle of Morgan Taylor Lacquer Nautically Inclined. In order to enter, just go to my post for Nautically Inclined here and leave a comment. I will choose a winner on Friday! Good luck and thanks for stopping by today.
