Fiesta!

Hey, everyone!

Do any of you have a nail polish that you really only use once a year for like a holiday or something like that? I do! It's KBShimmer Kringle All the Way! I love this glitter polish so much but I only really use it at Christmas time because, well, it's a Christmas glitter! But recently I got it into my head that it also reminds me of a fiesta, and so this mani was born. Keep reading to see how I got this look!

Delicious Sushi

Hey, everyone!

So I've been trying to step up my photo editing skills by using another editing software, but I'm crap at learning new things like that, so for now I'll be using the same old same old, I suppose.

Axolotl Friend!

Butterflies Glitterfied

Hey, everyone!

I think this design is fitting to post today (although I wore it about a week ago) because we finally have some intermittent sunshine today! It's basically been dreary and raining on and off for the last week and a half in addition to having flood concerns looming over us all. So some nice cheery butterflies are just what I needed!

Life Update & A Special Legacy

Hey, everyone!

I'm sorry I've been MIA this week. You may have seen stuff about Oroville Dam and its damaged spillway(s) in the news recently. Well, my town is downriver from the dam, and there has basically been an evacuation order (downgraded to an advisory) in effect for the entire past week, just in case the (already full) river breeches the levees and causes a massive flood. I haven't been able to go to work because all the schools are closed, and it's been a really stressful week. The storm system this weekend is only putting more pressure on the issue, but the updates this morning seem to be good ones. So I'm trying to catch up on some posts until they possibly tell us we need to get out!

Update out of the way, this mani and this post are very special to me. My academic advisor from college recently and suddenly passed away. We were very close, since I was one of only two graduating chem majors in my graduating year, and he was simply put the most lovely and genuine gentleman I have ever met. I will tell you more about him in this post, but this mani is what I wore to his "celebration of life" service. Please keep reading for more!

Call of Cthulhu

Hey, everyone!
