As I sit here typing this blog post, there are currently six grown men running around on top of my house, hammering and scraping and making more noise than you would assume is humanely possible.
But you can be sure that I'm not complaining about this, because after all, I have a roof over my head. And not only that, I have the resources to get a brand new roof over my head. I know there are many many people in this world who cannot say the same, and for that I am grateful for my blessings.
I'm also grateful I have a car, because after I get this blog post up and take care of a few things, Isabelle and I are out. of. here.
While I'm out and about, I wanted to leave you with this post on sparkly nail polish. I love glitter. But I was always disappointed with any of the glitter polishes I bought. They didn't really sparkle. So several years ago, I created my own solution.
This is what you'll need:
But the secret is the glitter! It's craft glitter (I got mine at Michael's years ago) and you want the finest (read: teeniest sparkles) glitter you can find.
Start with clean, polish free toes.
Back to the nails.
Paint your first coat of polish.
Once you're ready for your second coat, paint just a few nails at a time, and then stop to sprinkle on the glitter. You want to apply the glitter while the polish is still really wet so it'll stick well.
And then, ta-da!!
Pictures don't really do it justice, but I promise this is the most sparkly you've ever seen nails. When I have my nails done like this, people stop me all the time to complement it and ask about it.
But I'll warn ya, and pardon my french, this is a pain in the ass to remove. You've been warned.
And with that, I'm out! I hope your house is much more peaceful than mine today :)
Do you have any tattoos?
What's your favorite color of nail polish?
