NOTD: Contrasting Triangles + A Sleepy Galileo

I've got some more nail art for you guys today!! Because:
1.) It's FINALLY the weekend (this is how I celebrate), and
2.) Next week is the last week of classes aka h*** (this is how I relax and ease the heat of Satan's flames).

And speaking of relaxation, I've got some photos of a pretty cute and sleepy kitty waiting below, so take the jump if you want to see :)

I didn't realize until now that the names of the polishes I used for this nail art are wildly appropriate for the mood finals puts me in; 
most of the time I feel like I have a hangover from the mental and physical pounding school puts me through (most people think art school would be fun and relaxing but it's actually really strenuous. Let me put it this way: in other degrees, if you fail an exam you can say "shoot, I wasn't smart enough this time around but if I study harder next time I'll do much better". However, if a professor hates your work all you can say to yourself is "I am an untalented failure") 
HOWEVER I feel like everyone hits a point of exhaustion known as 'slap-happy' where you get an electric shock of energy (read: you will regret the things you say and do in this state later).

I just love the look of these nails and couldn't be happier with how they turned out. 
I got my inspiration for them from a post on Pinterest (as always) but instead of doing the triangles exactly as pictured I just winged it. 
The contrast of the blue and orange along with the geometric clusters of triangles just really make these nails stunners!!

Enough of the chatter though, I'm sure you just want to see some cute pictures of Galileo!! 
He likes to nap right next to where I take photos for my blog so I woke him up for a second while taking the pictures above but he fell back asleep after a quick tummy rub ;)

What are you doing Mommy mya?
I'll forgive you if you just rub my tummy nyaow...
Ohhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh back to dreams of wet cat food feasts and packing paper to jump on...

So that's about it!!

How are you all?
Did this week drag on for you like it did for me?
Are you in school and having finals hit you hard right now?
Do share!!
