New Years nails

Butter London - The Black Knight and OPI - Rainbow Connection

my uninspired nails for the new year. wasn't feeling creative in this junk ass 42 degree weather...

least i won't be cooped up inside tonight. we're actually going out to welcome in the New Year this year.. and together!

--what i've learned this year...

-never stop fighting for what you believe in. it's better to try and fail than to live with regrets wondering what it could have been like.
-people walk in and out of your lives everyday. but only few leave footprints. i've both gained and lost friends this year... i've learned lots about the people in my life and have much to learn about the people i have yet to meet. but that's life and you learn something new everyday so long as you're willing to look.
-i have a new found obsession with nail polish.
-there is so much more to people than what meets the eye. even if you think you know someone. so matter how long you've known them.. you'd be surprised about how much you don't know about them.
-i couldn't live without my mother
-and most of all.. to love. love.. and be loveable. it is one of the most rewarding feelings in life.

i hope everyone has a fantastic new year and may it bring you endless happiness and good fortune ♥

my christmas weekend

long over due post... but i hope everyone had an awesome christmas holiday!

my christmas haul..

--strangely enough i'm very excited for the Elmer's glue and magic tape... apparently using Elmer's glue for a base coat then applying glitter polish is the way to go now.. because when you want to remove the polish.. you literally just peel it off.. as opposed to soaking your nails using the foil method.. or going through hundreds of cotton buds trying to remove all the glitter off of your nails. and as for the magic tape.. it makes cleaning  up marbling much easier :)

2 shirts from Just Jeans from the boys mother. pink nano ipod. magic tape. Elmer's glue and tea mug with chocolates from the boy. and OPI dutch treats from the boys brother :D

my christmas day nails... using my new OPI nail set.. Kiss My Tulips and I Have A Herring Problem

Boxing day shopping!

--for 6 hours of shopping with massive lines and people everywhere.. i don't think i did too much damage hahaha. mad masks. Burt's Bees miracle salve (this was almost impossible to find. the boy foind it in David Jones and surprised me with it) Japanese Cherry Blossom shower pack from the Body Shop. fruit scented candle. i'm not sure what we were thinking when we bought the Nerf guns.. hahaha and a key necklace from the boy ^_^

lunch at iKEA. swedish meatballs with jam and gravy

one of the best christmases i've ever had. and i was blessed to have spent it with such loving people. even though it was hotter than the devils ass hole.. i couldn't have asked for anything more.. well... maybe some femmefatale indie polishes ;P

#nails for newtown

my version of blue and gold nails in support for newtown

--had a lunch date with a friend today... basically my only friend in perth.. 

day drinking at its finest if i do say so myself. seems like everyone's been having domestic issues lately... with work getting busy and the holiday season coming round seems like its put everyone on edge... but at the end of the day.. so long as you're willing to fight for each other and work things out.. it's what matters most. 

first christmas gift of the year

evidently i couldn't wait till christmas to open it but i just couldn't wait to try them out.

Butter to my bread

Butter London Fishwife swatched with Australis Speck-tacular

the picture doesn't do either polish any justice.. i wish i could share the holographic glitters more.. (i guess it's about time i invested time in figuring out how to use the boys DSLR camera ==") but this has got to be one of my most favourite polishes ever.

waiting for it to dry was a nightmare... because i went a little crazy with the holographic glitter top coat.. i had to sit around for about an hour and literally watch paint dry... and of course.. as per usual.. i need to go to the bathroom minutes after i'm done polishing... WHY DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN! so i ended up smudging it and had to redo them...

christmas shopping

$5 chicken and rice

i think this and winter melon tea was the highlight of the day for me...

if there's anything i hate more than christmas shopping... (massive lines. ridiculous amounts of people everywhere and although there's merchandise.. you still can't manage to find anything) it's probably having to wrap them...

although i don't think i did too bad... it only took me over 2 hours just to wrap 4 gifts... hahahaha

most unfortunately.. there's about 3 more people to have to shop for =="

my futile attempt at something festive

seeing as i have a christmas BBQ to attend this weekend.. i thought i'd do something festive.. only thing was.. i just had absolutely no inspiration whatsoever.. so after about.. 15 minutes of sniffing nail polish.. i came up with this...

not one of my greatest.. but it'll do for this week :P

Subiaco fair date night :)

most delicious potato i've ever eaten.. $6 for a sliced potato dipped in batter, deep fried and sprinkled with chill chicken salt. pretty sure it's the longest line i've ever had to stand in for food.. but i have to say.. it was worth every minute.

most expensive and smallest beef burrito with salsa verde and chipotle sauce ever.. but thank goodness it was at least really tasty.

guess what i found...!

i almost shit myself when i saw these.. 22 bucks a pop... SO MUCH WANT! ugh... damn this christmas season and their season of giving and not receiving bullshit.. and damn this country and their ridiculously priced nail polish and their junk ass taxes..

*currently looking for a nail mail buddy*

bratwurst and sauerkraut with mustard :)

ombre nails

gradient glitter nails :)

it was sad for me to part with my glitter leopard nails.. but they were starting to chip and peel.. so i thought it'd do something different for my initiation tomorrow.. hopefully they'll have work for me. i really don't want to wait till after christmas to start working... i don't think i could handle another month of this housewife shit hahahaha :D
