NotD & Reminder

Hey, loves! I just wanted to remind everyone that Google Reader is shutting down tomorrow. Please make sure to follow via Bloglovin'. There is a button to the right >> so it's just an easy click.

Also, here are a couple manis that I never got around to posting. The first is L.A. Colors - Wired. Love this dark blue shimmer and great quality for only $1! Went on smooth and covered in 2 coats.

 The second is Urban Outfitters - Slime with Lacquerhead Polish - In the Moonlight. Slime is patchy, streaky and pulls with second coats. But the glitter topper from Lacquerhead is so pretty with blue hexes,  blue holo squares, blue moons & more. It had to be dabbed to get the glitter where you want it, but that's no biggie.

Well, that's all. I hope you'll continue to follow. I have the Mary Kay VoxBox from Influenster coming up. So, stay tuned!

Fun Friday: A Little Nail Humor

Hey guys! I just wanted to do something a little different and share my humor with you all. Nail related, of course. I'm the biggest cheese ball you will ever know. So, what better way to get to know me than to share how my mind works, right?

But just so this isn't a text only post, here's a quick swatch of L.A. Colors Atomic.

L.A. Colors Atomic
Sorry it's blurry, but I love this green! This is two coats, no top coat. Application was great. Can beat it for $1!

Ok on to the fun! You'll notice the first "entry" from fb, ig & everywhere else I post. But I changed Polish-aholic to Polish Addict because I know there is a Polish-aholic blog and I didn't want there to be any confusion or misunderstandings. I hope you enjoy!

A Polish Addict's Dictionary -or-
A Guide to Polish Addiction

Swatching: an excuse to paint your nails over & over again in one day, or the very next day.

Lemming: a polish you would go to the ends of the earth for. Unlike actual lemmings, we are distracted by all the pretty polishes along the way & sometimes we miss out. Luckily...

Blog Sale: both a happy & sad event. For those looking to squash a lemming, it's great! For those parting with their babies, not so much. But the silver lining is, you make room & earn money for new polish (or whatever you might need)!

Nail Art & Nail Blogging: the most acceptable excuse a significant other will accept for buying so many polishes that are similar in color.

Denial: your next nail art project, because no you don't already have that shade of blue. Nor can you use any of the ones you already have. It must be this shade! Besides, it's called a polish collection for a reason.

No Buy: 1) vulgar language. 2) the creature that polish addicts' nightmares are made of. Usually avoidable with a little self-control. If you encounter the evil No Buy, Keep Calm & Paint Your Nails! (^_~)

Giveaway: 1) a way to gain followers, grow your blog & show appreciation. 2) a reason to buy two of the same polishes or collections. 3) a way to have a certain polish or collection in your possession, even if only briefly, because you didn't have it in the budget to get two.

Naked Nails: a shameful confession

Indie Polish: dirty talk. You wanna make an addict swoon, talk indie to her.

Haul: like a random, pop-up Christmas anytime of the year.

Are there any terms you would add? Feel free to share. As always, thanks for reading!

NotD Plus Bonus Adorable-ness

Hi hi. I haven't been doing my nails as much, but I think I'll be back in the swing of things soon. To be completely honest, I've been hooked on a manga call "Attack on Titan" or "...the Titans." If you're into Japanese culture at all, you probably know this is pretty popular right now. I wanted to read the manga before watching the anime, because you never know what you'll miss after editing. At any rate, it's pretty original and interesting. I'm really dreading reaching the end and it being a total let down. Anyone who reads can relate to that feeling, right?

Ok, enough of my geek talk. (^_^;) Today, I just have a quick NotD, no special nail art. This is Sinful Colors Candy Coated with Sation Band Beauty.

Sinful Colors Candy Coated and Sation Band Beauty

I love this combination. The colors reminded me of one of my lemmings, Girly Bits Indian Summer as seen here on Imperfectly Painted. I know it's not really that similar, but it just reminded me of it. Honestly, I hadn't even thought about Indian Summer since I first saw it. I know some of you serious polish-aholics can recall polish colors and names like nothing, but not me. So, to remember it all these months later shows what an impression that polish left on me.

Ok, so for the bonus material, I wanted to show you what my daughter did this weekend. She did this completely on her own, mind you! Haha. She got a Doc McStuffins purse for her birthday that you could color and decorate with these little gems. Well, she decorated, alright. Her nails, that is!

Yeah, I'd say she's well on her way to being a polish/nail art lover. Maybe makeup too. You see the box on the table in the first pic? Full of lip gloss and peel-off polish. Haha. That's mommy's girl!

Well, that's all for today. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
