Random NOTDs

Press Samples

Hi all,

So I've been pretty quiet on the blog front because I had a massive nail break on my swatch hand and just haven't wanted to swatch anything at all. In fact, couple that with my new full-time job, two graduate class, and just trying to enjoy autumn, and I am finding it difficult to do anything beyond a quick mani.

I am currently behind on Pusheen art and have two months to do (three including October). I also have a fabulous list of Halloween art that I had already wanted to start mid September, but honestly, won't, because of my broken nail. I also have 2 Zoya collections, an oldDuri fall collection, Stella Chroma Fall, and more to swatch.

So I feel sort of defeated.

Here are some random manis that I've been wearing as my nail grows out. I will say it has been fun wearing singular polishes and just enjoying them. These are by no means official swatches. Just some quick snapshots.

Sunflower Reverse Stamping Nail Art

 Press Sample

Oh hello there. I've realized that August is always a slow month blog-wise and so while I did these nails a month ago, I'm sharing them now haha. My darling surprised me (well told me two days before!) with tickets to a sunflower trail.  🌻 🌻🌻 Deep down, he totally gave me notice so I could do theme nails. My theme nails for events have dropped significantly, well, because life has changed! So I took advantage of it and did some fun nails!
