Today Sucks

I had a horrible morning (does sobbing the whole way home from work about sum it up?) so I've decided to do everything in my power to pamper myself for the rest of the day.

What better than to create a necklace that's been on your D.I.Y. list for what feels like months now (thanks Letitia/lookunderhere!!) and coat your nails in rainbow sparkle polish while watching "Too Cute!: Kittens" on Animal Planet and munching chocolate potato chip sandwiches (two potato chips with a piece of chocolate in the middle for those of us who don't keep fancy pants chocolate covered potato chips in the house for emergencies)!

Huzzah, and good riddance.

(I didn't clean up around my nail beds before photographing; so sue me)
NYC - #124 Cashmere Creme (two coats on bottom)
Nicole by O.P.I. - RAINBOW IN THE S-KYLIE (one coat on top)

Oh yeah baby, I kid you not: that was only ONE COAT of the glitter polish!! It's so opaque, I'm so happy I'm going to be getting every penny out of this polish. 
I also tried out that Sally Hansen Insta-dry polish that I hauled in my last post and I'm really impressed!! It doesn't dry in the 30 seconds that it claims, but it's definitely good to go after one minute!! Time will tell how it holds up against chipping.

And here's the necklace that I crafted from supplies I picked up yesterday (thank god). I changed the design a little bit from Letitia's original (different chains and sizes and a few clasps and security measures) but otherwise I think it turned out great. Can't wait to wear this!!

What do you do to cheer up on a day that's bad from the start?

  1. Sorry that your morning was so terrible! But that polish is so beautiful! Cannot believe you got that in one coat! I usually just snuggle up in bed with my puppy and sit through hours of True Blood to cheer me up, try it out - it works a treat!


    1. Aw thank you!! And yes, that polish really is packed with glitter - I highly recommend it if you want some sparkle in your life!
      Speaking of TrueBlood, I need to watch the new season and the one previous!! I'm behind and I hear Eric has been SUPER sexy lately haha.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, Alice :)

  2. I love the glitter nail polish, I have a pink one which I am a tad in love with. Like the necklace too :)

      Madison's Assortment

    1. Yes, the polish is great! I just hauled a pink one as well and can't wait to wear that next.
      And thanks for the compliment on the necklace! It was surprisingly (and thankfully) very easy to make if you want to try it out!

  3. Cute nails! Sooo Trendy!

    I just want to invite you to join the RIRE giveaway on my blog

    1. Haha thank you!! Are sparkle nails on trend right now and I didn't even know it!??!
