Falling.

It's about time that I paint my nails again! Well, when I asked my lil friend Bella what she wanted me to paint my nails...she said that she wanted Purple and Red...so here is what I came up with!












I'm not the biggest fan of the color purple...I'm not saying that it's a "bad" color...just that I won't choose it as my first choice...but you know what?! I like how my nails turned out...so there you go!

Movie Night.

My sister decided that all of us are going to get together and watch a movie. I am counting and dreading the day when my sister takes off with her family to go visit the mainland for a two weeks...it's going to be the longest I'll go without seeing my DollGirl, and I am NOT looking forward to that. But it's not until next month...but I have one more week with my DollGirl, so my sister saying that she wants a movie night with the fambam, I wasn't going to turn down. Plus, I love my family time.

Not only that, but I know that Tracy and her husband Kaleo will be on their way to Japan because Kaleo will be participating in STRONG MAN! I know that he has worked hard on training...so I wish him luck...so we all will be apart for the month of April...so it's good that we will be having this movie night.

I think that the movie that we decided to watch was Frozen. I can't believe that I haven't seen it yet, however, I feel as if I already know all about it! Right now I am taking the time to quickly write this blog post before the movie starts. I think my sister is at Tracy's house right now...the boys don't want to watch Frozen, so they are over there trying to figure out a movie to watch. I was doing some homework for a little bit...and when they come back we'll start our movie night. :)


I'm going to miss waking up to this lil DollGirl! I know that I don't always wake up to her...but then I do try to come over on the weekends...and she is my lil alarm clock...her hair is growing SOOO long! Ahhh!


"Where's your face, DollGirl...?! Oh there you are!" I can not tell you enough how much this lil munchkin has my heart! 


Oh! I can hear them coming back now! So quickly now...look at the awesome popcorn maker that my brother bought for my sister! I love it! I hope we get to use it more....more movie nights for sure! *laughs* Well...I'm off to watch Frozen! Yay for family time!

Day off.

I am so happy that I had this day off. I really needed. I'm still going strong even though it's late! I still have so much to do! But I was able to get a lot of things done that I wanted to get done. I feel like my "To Do" list is NEVER ENDING! But I am so happy that I was able to cross out a lot of the things that I wanted done!

I just turned in an essay that I had been working on. It feels good to be able to do that. Two more projects to do before I go on to the Psychology part of my schooling. I am kind of excited for that since I am very much interested in Psychology. If I had a chance to do it all over again, I think that I would go in to Psychology. I think, maybe if ever I have time I will take some classes on Psychology only because I am so interested in the subject. :)

I told myself not to be distracted too much with the things around my house as I was doing things to cross off my "to do" list. I think that I did a pretty good job at it too! I noticed that I did get restless a lot though because a lot of the things that I needed to do was inside...but I was able to take a short break outside in my backyard.


My neighbors hibiscus flower was peeking over my fence, and it so made me smile. I love flowers...obviously! *laughs*...but pink is my favorite color...and this pop of pink made my day. I just said a small prayer thanking God for making flowers because they really do make me smile and make my day. 

The last thing that I want to do before I go to sleep...well...two things are take a shower and finish with my lesson planning for my keikis for this coming up month. Hopefully, I'll be able to sleep "early" tonight! I know that I'll be waking up early to pack to go to my sister straight after working at the Passion Roots studio! It's going to be a long day...but it's all good. I got this!


Yay for days off! :) Goodnight and sweetdreams for now! Oh and before I forget, a big shout out to my girl, Shilhi! Happy birthday, gurl...I love you so much...and I am so glad that you are in my life. You planted the love for flowers in my heart...and for that I will eternally be grateful to you. Hope you were spoiled all day today! :) *hugs*

Birchbox March 2014: Spring Forward.

Look what finally arrived in my mailbox! I hope that it's doesn't always take this forever to receive my Birchbox! That was just too forever! I was tracking my box, and it was sent out on March 10...however I received it more than 2 weeks later! With my first box it wasn't this forever. But oh well, I was still pretty happy to see it waiting for me at my study desk! I wasn't able to open it right away, because I had to go to my (Event Designing) job...but I now have time to open it and explore the goodies that it holds!

If you would like to subscribe to your very own Birchbox, click here. It's $10/month. It's like a surprise every month...:)


So, last month I think that it came in a red box for Valentines day...so this month it came in it's original colored box which is pink...totally fine with me! Pink is my favorite color (go ahead roll your eyes...I'm a girlie-girl! :))


As always, there is a box inside a box. I need to find something to do with the boxes I get so that I can upcycle the boxes that I get! I don't want my room to be over run with all these boxes! :) But there is the box when I first opened it. The information card with a note from Birchbox's staff. A sweet touch.


This month's theme is Spring Forward because of the daylight savings time. Although, here in Hawaii we do not have daylight savings time...I guess since this is based on the mainland, that's okay. But lets see what goodies I have this time around!


I like how on the other side of the note from Birchbox is a information card where it tells you tips on how to use the products that you got and the price of the full-size items. Handy, yeah?!


So, here is what I saw (I did arrange it for better picture! Duh! It did NOT look like this when I first opened it! *laughs*). Can't say I was too happy about it...at first sight I though...where is the make up samples?! But it's all good...at second glance I saw that these are some things that I wouldn't mind trying.


I'm not too hot on these kind of samples. They are one time use...and I'm not sure that I can tell if it is working on not on only one try. But I did see that on my information card it only mentions the Control Corrective: Healing Lotion. Which I probably use on my hands the next time I paint my nails. I like to a full manicure...and buttering up you hands with hand lotion is part of my process, and I might just use this lotion sample instead of what I usually use. I'm not sure if I was suppose to get the Control Corrective: Bead Cleanser or not...because there was no mention of it on the card...so that's a cool surprise! I'll try it tonight instead of my usually cleanser...see if I feel a difference. :)


I can always use sunscreen! I mean, hello! I live here in Hawaii...like I said, I can always use sunscreen! In fact, my sister just informed me that she wants to have a BBQ at the beach this Saturday, so I might just throw this in my beach bag and bring it along. 

I was just telling Amanda (my housemate) that as long as it's not dye or anything with harmful chemicals, I don't mind experimenting with different things on my hair! My hair is naturally dark brown with natural highlights, super silky, and long...! Many times people can not tell if I did something or used something different on my hair...but I can! So I will try this shampoo and see if it makes a difference in my hair. I'm pretty sure that this is a sample size...but it's big enough that I probably can have a few go's with it!


I really do like exfoliating anything so I can't wait to try Vasanti's BrightenUp! exfoliating cleanser! I think that I would like the Rescue Balm All-Purpose Skin Salve, but I think that I'll give it to my sister. She has been having trouble with dry hands (she likes to bake a lot and it makes her hands dry), so I think that she will get the best use of it...and if she really likes it, then maybe I can some for her for birthday next month! :)

Overall, I think that even though I was disappointed when I first opened my box, I'm excited to try everything in my box (aside from the Rescue Balm, which I will give to my sister...but she might like it!) Thank you, Birchbox! I can't wait until my next box! Hopefully it' won't take as long...I'm not very good a waiting. :)

Chocolate gummy bears.

Today was a struggle. But I made it...let me just take the time right now to say that I really appreciate my friends. I love them so much...and I absolutely appreciate them in my life. Friends and family gets me through the tough times. And I love them. So much.

So, everyone (at least everyone who is close to me that is!) knows that I have a huge HUGE sweet tooth. I am a chocolate lover...however, it is a very close toss up between chocolate and GUMMY candy! Oh my goodness I simple adore gummy candy...but I can't live without my chocolate either!

A couple days ago a new co-worker of mine found out that I had a huge love for gummy candy that she brought in a 5 pound bag of gummy bears and worms...she is sooo sweet! She really is...I hope that she stays with us for a long time. She is a keeper, that's for sure...and it's not only because she brought me gummy candy...but because inside and out Nohea is a beautiful person. She really does go the "extra mile" for people...whether she knows you very well, or if she just met you. She said that she saw that I was having a hard week...and if a the "few dollars spent buying gummy candy" can make me smile...then why not. Like is said, she goes the extra mile to make those around her smile. She has a beautiful soul. True story.

Anyway, during nap time one time I had filled a cup of gummy bears and was eating them when my other co-worker, Nicole was saying that she was shocked that I wasn't snacking on M&M's (and then she followed up with "I guess it's gummy time though for you...last week was M&M's"...oh she cracks me up!)...and then my friend, Ashley was like "why don't you just eat chocolate covered gummy bears?"

Ew. Really?! Ew.

I know that I've seen them before. Like at the theaters...I always buy M&M's for the movie...but I've seen them sell the chocolate covered gummies...but I don't think that I would like them very well. Ashley was trying to convince me to try them...I can't knock them until I try them, right?! Well...look what she brought me today!


And there you have it, folks...Chocolate Gummi Bears. I tried it...the first one she said that I had to just chew the whole thing. I did. Did I like it?! It was decent. I did NOT like the texture in my mouth though. And I have to say that together...chocolate and gummy...I'm not sure I really like it! But when I ended up doing was sucking all the chocolate off...YUMMY!...and then eating the gummy bear...YUMMY! Now, that I liked. So, I guess I got the best of two worlds, right?!

So the end verdict?! I like them. Separately...but I like them. I'm not to sure I would go out and buy them...but if they were the only candy left in the world, I wouldn't die. :)

Free Sunday.

Yay! I get this day for me...and only me! So I have been trying to cross of things off of my "To Do" list for today. After I did my nails this morning...I wrote out a "To Do" list of things that I wanted to get done. I do have Wednesday off so the things that I don't get done today, I will do on Wednesday. I think that I'll be able to get everything done though. I should be able too at least. Unless something spontaneous comes.

I have to tell myself that I can't get too distracted with anything. So far the piano has been my biggest enemy! *laughs* I was outside clean and fixing up the backyard...when my brother and scared the ladidahs out of me! But he ended up helping me fix my overhang tarp...so I'm glad that he was here.

And if you have guessed it...yes, I am being distracted by posting on here! *laughs* I just wanted to sit for a moment...so I took a picture of my list and the thing that I was able to cross out so far...but in 3-2-1...gotta go and start cleaning again! Blah! Oh well...yay, to a clean house! :)

For Bella.

So it's was way past due to redo my nails. Did you see that picture in my last post?! My nails were so "gah...!!!"...so I had asked one of the girls at my preschool what she wanted me to paint on my nails...and she said "Rainbow colors with lines. And a little bit of dots. Are you going to add glitter?" Yes, Bella-girl, I did end up adding glitter one my pinky nails.


I used a lot of colors and bottles of nail polish for this design. However, it really didn't take me all that long. It took longer for me to clean my nails than it did for me to paint them! :)


Here is my left hand. Yes, I copied some of the design from a previous design. So shoot me....or I would rather you not. :) I did it this way...the colors, so that it was too rainbow-y...and something different.


And my right hand...a little different from my left hand...but I like how it turned out. I hope Bella will like it to when I show her tomorrow. :)

Spontaneous Stroll.

Today my sister and her family came over after church. Just to hang out and have lunch at our place. My brother was already here and Amanda, of course, is here as well. So we ended up taking a spontaneous "stroll"...but I say more of a hike! *laughs*...at an old favorite place of ours.

I always enjoy coming to the Pali Lookout. It's such a beautiful view, and it's probably the only place that I know of that I actually lean against the wind and like float there. And yes, I did say the wind...it's that strong. And then if you know the place enough, you can walk down on the old Pali Highway...and it's pretty awesome! I'm super glad that it's not like that anymore...I would be so paranoid driving on the tiny road with only a very tiny railing that prevents you from driving over the side! But Amanda brought her camera and we took some fun picture that she let me have!


The view is amazing...and I love this shot of my sister and I. I'm holding DollGirl in my arms. I love that girl SO VERY MUCH!


I love my family so much.




We are so cool doing our jumping poses! We took no less than a million! *laughs*


My brothers. They are mine. And I love them!


Walking back to the car...I came across a Jackson Chameleon (JC)...I see them all the time in my preschool playground. This one is "bigger" the the ones that I usually come across. I love the look on DollGirl's face. She really wanted to kiss it so bad! I wouldn't let her, of course. But she really wanted to it was cute. I did let JC go back to his nature home.  I wouldn't do that to him. Take him away from his home. But gah! look at my horrible nails! I so need to redo my nails! Gah! Oh well...it's my DollGirl who steals the show in this picture anyways. :)

Although I didn't want to go at first, I'm glad that I went...I had fun...I always do...with my family. :)

Pick me up.

I can't believe that I actually survived this really difficult week. Actually, I take that back...I DO BELIEVE that I really did survive this week because I have amazing co-workers that are my friends that helped me survive.

Lets just say that we were short staff at the preschool...and so that affected everything that happened...I am so happy that it's Friday. I'm so happy that it's the weekend! It is very much needed. Every weekend is very much needed, but this particular weekend...I really need. I am not doing ANYTHING preschool related for this whole weekend. I might just do the cleaning that I really wanted to get done.

Amanda is so lucky that she has Spring Break...and today was her last day of school before her spring break...so all next week she has off. But I think that she has some school stuff that she needs to get done. But at least she gets a break...but I know that she deserves it. I wish that our school can see that I need and deserve one too! Oh well...that's how life goes.

As I was driving home from work, my sister calls...and she asked me if there was any jewelry that I wanted. What...?! Is there...uhm...YES! I love jewelry! I am a feather/wings and hoops kind of girl...but I have discovered that I also adore "ocean" themed jewelry as well...not surprising since I do adore anything that has to do with the ocean. Yes, even the jellyfish that I am so terrified of. I think the only thing that I can do without are eels. I do not like eels.

Anyway, Shilhi had told me that her cousin who makes jewelry was having a private sale on her jewelry collection that she hand custom makes. However, it was from 2-5pm...and I got out of work at 4:45...and there is always a lot of traffic going to 'nalo...so I wouldn't have made it...but my wonderful sister told me to facetime her so I can see what there was! I thought after this really difficult week I needed to have a "pick me up..." So I bought myself some adorable earrings...I also bought my sister a necklace for her birthday...and also I got my sister to snag a bracelet that Shilhi was eyeing for her birthday on the 26th (Wednesday). It was funny because Shilhi was really bummed coz she wanted it..so she doesn't know that I got it for her.

I couldn't get a picture of the necklace that my sister chose...or the bracelet...but here is a picture (and the business card of Anueanue) of the earrings that I got for myself!


I absolutely love them so much! I want to learn how to make jewelry like this so that I don't have to buy them...they are so expensive...but it's all good, because I work hard for my money...so I think that I can spend on my hobbies. :)

My sister and her hubby and my adorable DollGirl came over to Saigon Noodle House to meet up with me to have dinner at my absolutely favorite family restaurant. It's what I needed after this really hard week. I really love my family. I am so glad that they are here with me. I love them.

Say Something.

Today was a very, very difficult day. I did go into the day with a smile and a positive thought, however it did not help that I am feeling "under the weather" and my throat hurts like a mofo! But hey, look at me! I survived...and you know what...?! I love my friends. I love my family. And I love the fact that God is there for me when I need Him, or even think that I don't need Him.

I rolled out of bed already feeling quite crummy. My throat was so painful and I couldn't breath properly...which meant that I probably slept with my mouth open (which I know that I don't normally do)...so my painful throat was dry and it hurt to swallow. But I thanked God that I was awake and I had a new day ahead of me. See, I told you! I was positive! :)

I got to school and my co-worker and friend put this on me:


Although it is quite obvious that I am NOT Irish...I still wore it! I wore my green shirt to school today too...and my nails are still green and I wore these really cute green earrings in honor of St. Patrick. Usually when I get to school, my keikis are coming down from the playground but since it was raining they were already in my classroom with two other classes. I am always excited to see my keikis after the weekend. I miss them. Today, I got hit with a surprise...I have a new child in my class. Lets just say that he is my new challenge...bring it on! :)

All day long my throat hurt so bad...but I got through with it. But what made my day super crummy was the bad news that I got. My friend, my dear, dear friend Ed was out wild boar hunting when the boar turned on him and his friend. I don't know the whole story...but please pray for him...because his friend was impaled through the chest with the boars tusk...and did not make it. Knowing Ed, he is probably playing "what if's" on repeat in his head. So this news has been breaking my heart since I heard it early this afternoon. 

It was a rough day...but I made it. But I sure hope this is not a foreshadow of what the rest of the week is like. 

This song has been a broken record in my head recently...and I adore Pentatonix's version of this song...although I do have to say A Great Big World & Christiana Aguilera did an amazing job as well, but Say Something is a song that can speak to a lot of us...so here it is for you to listen too.

Decor sale.

It seemed that this day lasted longer then normal...not complaining of anything, just seems like there was so much going on, when in reality not much was going on...just whatever WAS going on took a long time. If that made any sense. :)

Early this morning Shilhi texted me to tell me that she was in Starbucks...and would I like something. Shoots! Yes! Just coffee...black, please. Well, when she texted me I was already on my way to the studio because today was our decor garage sale. I didn't even realize that we were going to have it today until I saw this on instagram:


What?! We are having a decor garage sale?! And then after I saw this, I get a call saying that guess what?! We are going to have a decor garage sale?! Oh really?! I didn't know that. :) Well, feel free to follow us on instagram...you can see our name...up there. :) Well, I ended up going to the studio on Saturday to help set up the place and let me tell you, I was so tempted to buy everything! I wanted everything! I just love decorating/designing things! And I can always use stuff to dress up the place where I call home! :) Today started early...but look what I found...


...a nearly perfect plumeria bloom AND in my favorite color. :) Well, I went to the studio, and I think that it went well! We sold a lot of our things that we weren't using or weren't needed. And I personally think a lot of people scored big time! We are always happy to help out with designing and decorating...whether it be an event or your home! :)

I personally think that we had a good turn out. We had some wedding venders come and buy some of our stuff...and we even had past clients come and buy some things for their homes! It was wonderful seeing them again! We had a lot of friends, family, and church family stop by and look at everything...it was a long day, but I think that it was a very productive day.

We want new things for our studio and rental equipment and so we all decided as a group to sell the things that we weren't using as much anymore...and I think that everyone scored big...and it was good. What started out a gloomy day turned out to be a hot, beautiful day. In ever sense.

After we closed up, Paula, Shilhi and I went to Teddy's Burgers and had a late lunch before Paula and I dropped Shilhi off back at the studio to meet with a client. I drove back home, took a short nap and started cleaning that house...but look at the things that I scored from the garage sale! I'm pretty excited about the things that I got...! :)


I was looking for trays so that I can bring my tea and dinner downstairs to work...and so Shilhi gave me those two trays on the top. I adore the floral print...and they are a pretty sturdy and perfect for my needs. The bottom tray, I think that I am going to use a project...we will see. :)


I absolutely fell in-love with the vintage glass tea set! I can so see myself using them with my glass teapot...and I love how it comes with it's own glass tray. They are super heavy too! They won't be breaking anytime soon! I scored 3 sets...so tea anyone?! :) I also got two mini ivory glass milk jars for cream/milk for when I have tea. I think they are so adorable! And it was SO hard to resist the chic vintage stool/foot rest.


The two black, circular throw pillows as super soft...and I needed some pillows  for my couch...so they were perfect...and I got this fabric and I was thinking to make new curtains for my room. I love the print...so happy. :)


I got these additions for my backyard. I am trying to fix it up nice...and it's getting there! The wooden podium, I was thinking to put my mosquito repellent candle on it. I adore those lanterns! There were 8 of them...but there was 3 after the sale was all done and so I bought them. I remember hoping that no one would buy them. I didn't get anything until  everyone looked at everything...so there was things that I missed out on...but I don't think that I did so bad. :) I love the tall vase and I am going to look for a tall LED candle to put inside so that I can place it outside as well.


There was actually a set of these gorgeous, pink, mercury votives...but the person who bought them only wanted 4...and so this was the lonesome one...so I bought it. I was thinking of putting my pens and such in it on my desk. It's so cute. :)


And I couldn't help myself but grab these two wedding magazines to look through because I tear out my favorite pictures...:)

As I was cleaning my house, my sister called me to tell me that she was on my side of town and if it was okay if her and her fambam came over...of course I said yes! I am always happy to see family! I got to play with DollGirl for awhile. She is my favorite...and I love her unconditionally. She is getting so big...and I love how she says and calls my name now! I love her so much!

I wish I had a Costco membership...but I don't. My sister does so she doesn't mind getting me things that I need...in this case she brought me my frozen Acai and coconut water Zico...which I totally recommend both to EVERYONE! :) And look! They brought me a present! :)


What's this?! They brought me Victoria's Secret?! Say what?! When I looked inside...look what I found?!


Sand and coral from Lana'i! They had gone there this past week...and so they brought me goodies to add to my collection! I am going to try to collect sand from all the Hawai'ian islands. :) It looks like black sand to me and I like! I think tomorrow, I am going to Ben Franklin's to buy some containers to put the sand in. :) And coral...wow, I LOVE coral...super picky about my coral though. This may sound crazy...but I have to connect to the coral...and seriously, I don't connect to just any coral...in this case...K.Neal always does a good job with finding me the perfect coral that I would love! I will add them to my coral collection. :)


And here is something random that was in my Victoria Secret's bag. A gift card to Lanikai Juice. It's random because it's to me from my hanai family...my sister said that she found it in the Victoria Secret's bag...I never put it there. Random....well, at least I have a gift card to there. I LOVE their Acaai bowls! :)


...and the last thing that I found in the bag was two Cinnamon rolls that my sister made for me. I have the best sister ever! I love her! I love my family...and yes...

...I ate one already. :)

Chicken.

Oh mandope, do I have a story to tell you!

Well, I went to hula class early this morning. I love my hula class...it's a lot harder than I thought that it would be...but whats a little challenge...practice makes perfect, right?! I think that it's hard because I am the only who had not taken hula during highschool...AND I don't speak Hawai'ian...and so it sounds all the same, but I'm doing it...and I hopefully I'll get. I love watching hula because it's so beautiful...and I want to be able to do it to.

Well, I usually go there with my friend, Jessica...she is the one who told me about the classes...so I am so thankful for her. But we meet up with her sister who goes there to work for her teacher and also sometimes she dances...she danced today. She's pretty good too! But Jess just catches a ride with her sister, so I go home alone...and here is where my story officially begins.

I get in my car and take off...no biggie right?! WRONG! So I get to my first stop light and I have to make a right...so I make a right and from the back of my car I hear this *thud*...and automatically look in my review mirror...WTF was that?! I had just gotten an organizer tote thing to put all my liquid bottles (you know like my car oil, window fluid thingy, and all that other good stuff) and other car stuff in....so I thought that it tipped over somehow...it wasn't even a sharp turn though. But I just brushed the sound off because I didn't want to freak myself out.

The next turn though, I guess one of the bottles did fall out somehow because all I can assume was that it rolled and all of a sudden the back of my car explodes in violent squawks and frantic movement...and I seriously freak out and thought that there was someone in the trunk of my car and they woke up or something and...and...and...I don't know...I just know that SOMETHING was in the back of my car...and I just need to stay calm of else I might get in a car accident.

I tried my hardest to control my breathing since I was so freaked out. I was trying so hard not to look at my rear view mirror so that I won't freak out. But every time whatever it was started making sounds I would freak out again.

And then....

...I looked glanced in my rearview mirror...and...

...a head pop up and eyes stared back at me.

I FREAKED OUT!

Somehow a chicken...a FUCKING CHICKEN made their way inside my car. I have a Chevy Tracker...and it has a soft top, and there is a TINY slit in the back...and when I say TINY...I mean really TINY and slight slit...and I guess somehow the chicken got there.

When I finally parked in my parking stall I called my housemate, Amanda...and she came outside...calmed me down and we opened up my trunk together...and meet the chicken who nearly caused me to have a car accident....



Do you see her?! She is waking towards my neighbors house...oh my gosh...! It's not a small chicken either!


Check out that mama!! It's lucky that Hawai'i has chickens running around...because there was NO WAY that I was going to drive back to Windward Community College (where my classes are held) and bring Ms. Chicken back...oh no...that chicken now resides here in Kailua.


And that, my dear friends, is my chicken story. :)

Green nails.

So yes, didn't I say that I was due for painting my nails?! Well, look what I did last night before I went to sleep! I am just so lucky that my nails dried proper before I was fully asleep because I know that I move around a lot when I sleep...but I woke up and I saw that my nails made it!

I have hula classes today, oh yeah, did I mention that I'm taking hula...and it's a lot of fun...really works out my thighs...but I love it so this is going to be a quick post before I leave to go pick up my friend for hula.

Since it's the month of March...what do you think about?!  Well, I think...GREEN...why?! Well, because of St. Patrick's Day of course! *laughs* So this month I'll be painting my nails green designs...and this is what I came up.

Avon Nailwear Pro+:Divine Lime, NYX:NGP 108 Pimp My Nail, Kiss Nail Art Paint:SPA20 Beach Green, e.l.f.:Gold Star

I do have to say that the Divine Lime color (The Avon nail polish) looks more chartreuse in color, bordering on looking yellowishy...but but I still think that it turned out okay...I was to lazy to change the color and I knew that I needed to go to sleep soon...so I just kept that color and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. The NYX green nail polish is my favorite green polish. I actually was looking for that shade of green for the LONGEST time ever! And guess who found it for me?! My brother...he surprised me with it...and its small things like that that my brother does that makes me feel loved. :) He told me (when he got me the nail polish)...that whenever he saw nail polish in the store...he would look for it. Wow, really?! My brother, I love him. I have a lot of green polish...but this was the shade that I was looking for. So I got to use it...I had to put a 3 layers to get how I wanted it to look...but thats okay...it's still my favorite. :)

Left hand
Dots and lines are the fastest designs to do. So easy and you can't really go wrong or mess up on it...and I know that I can do it even when I'm super tired...and so that is what I did.

Right hand
Shoots! It looks like I'm two different skin tones! *laughs* It's so hard to take pictures of my nails...and so the lighting is different. But yeah....I don't really like how you can't really see how I used gold glitter...but yeah, it's there...you know to represent the leprechauns gold?! :)


I like how they turned out...and green is my second favorite color...so its not hard on the eyes. :)
