NOTD - Sugar Skull Phalanges

What I used:
Seche Clear (base coat)
Seche Vite (top coat)
Deborah Lippmann "Mermaid's Dream"
Acrylic paint for the Sugar Skull

I painted this nail design last month before Halloween. I had anticipated taking some more pictures of my nails, so this is a shot before the cleanup step. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take another picture and the acrylic paint began chipping off hours later. 

I love how it turned out, just wish it had lasted a bit longer!!

Trip to Wisconsin - Part Two!

Trip to Wisconsin - Part One

Last month, my sister bought my husband, Sam, and I a getaway trip to Wisconsin. We stayed in a cabin named "Rustic Retreat." The main draw for this cabin was its distance from reality and no cell service.

Update! (More to Come)

Hello everyone!

Just a quick update before I release some of my new posts. I know I haven't been here in a while and I wanted to let you guys know what has been going on.

These past few months have been very hard for me.

I've been very sick and have been to several doctors. I've been unable to wear eye makeup up until recently, which has also been frustrating. I'm just now getting better. Those of you who follow my Instagram might have noticed I'm a bit more cheerful lately-- this is why!

School and work have been pilling on me to the point where I haven't had much time for anything else. A few of my co-workers recently quit and that's caused a strain at work. As for school, I'll be graduating this Spring! This, however, means I have a lot to get done. I've decided to go on for my Master's degree and I've been using my downtime to figure that out.

Some of you may remember a personal post from a long time ago when I mentioned my little brother had passed. This weekend marks one year since his death. I don't know how to feel about this or even what more I can say.

With everything that's been going on, I just needed an extended break to deal.

But....I never wanted to completely step away from the blogging community. Even then, I still would write down blog ideas or map posts out a bit.

I do have quite a few update posts to tell you what I've been up to, aside from all this negative stuff, which I'd rather not dwell on!

I've missed blogging and I'm ready to come back to that.

I hope you guys are still interested.
