China Glaze Fancy Pants

Hi all!

Yikes, it's been a little while since I last wrote a blog post.  While I want to be sorry, I'm not really :P  I'm in my home province, spending a whole lot of time with my very big family.  The passed weekend we had our annual family horseshoe tournament and this next weekend we celebrate my grandparents 65th wedding anniversary.  How crazy is that?

You'll notice that I have a new nail shape.  I'm not sure how much I like it yet, but in the last few months I picked up a few new hobbies, one of which is hula hooping, or hoop dancing.  And because of it I've broken SO MANY nails.  So, I'm trying this out and see if they'll stop snapping every time the hoop hits my hand.

Right now I'm at home working on my thesis so I took a bit of me time.  I had two huge nail fails yesterday, and I'm not super happy with this current mani but what can you do?


This is China Glaze Fancy Pants, a beauuutiful blurple with amazing shimmer.  On my middle and pinkie finger we have dots and stripes in Essie No Place Like Chrome.


My index and ring finger have this gorgeous glitter that I don't use nearly enough, Icing Written in the Stars.


I'm holding my hoop in the last two pictures.. how pretty is it?!  It's made out of heavy PVC piping though, which is why my nails have been snapping.. Maybe once I actually get good it won't happen so much ;)

Happy belated Canada Day to my Canadian lovelies, and Happy early 4th of July to my American loves, hope you celebrate(d) with those you love the most :)

    1. Not me! I was runner up for the "skunk" prize, with a whopping 3 point average per (21 point) game, lol. Two of my mom's siblings won the whole thing, we really had no chance with them paired together ;-)

      I'm loving this hooping thing, its a good mostly painless work out :-)

      Thanks lady!

  2. I think it's super cute and I especially like your index and ring :) Your new shape looks great, too. Hoop dancing sounds FUN and I hope your nails toughen up! You can totally rockthe nubs, though :)

      Hooping is so much fun, I'm glad I gave it a go since I hate actually working out.. this is a good alternative lol
