So, once in a while, about every other day, I get my mind stuck on something and I simply must do it before I can move on! My newest thing is participating in my first 5k. You'd think with the fact that I've been running since junior high school (11 years total) I would have done a serious run before but alas, I have yet to do a serious race...
So, I found one that I want to do.
This is everything I could ever ask for, almost. It includes running and a good cause to help benefit animals!

And the best part is I called and asked and they said that I could bring my dog for the run!!! YAY! she runs with me every single night so this will be really fun, I think I'll pay the registration for me and then another $15 dollars for Maggie since she will be running with me.

Here she is in some wild flowers on a hike one morning. She loves to go running and for hikes!

Don't worry nail polish readers, I will have more, I'm trying to make some time to do my Halloween colors! I've been wearing them almost every single day, I love them.

Girl, you be Chippin'!

So, here is the first time I've worn my Dorothy Who, which I thought was going to be like a blue version of Ruby Slippers, not so it turns out!
Say what?! Look at those chips! Yikes, this is after a mere 13-15 hours of wear time and 7 of those hours were spent sleeping! I must say I have to blame it on my base coat of choice this time around, I think...Seche Clear. I was just trying to use up my bottle so I don't have it anymore and can franken with the bottle but I'm pretty sure that's why this chipped so fast!

I must say though, that I do love this color and hope that it lasts longer with another base/top coat combo.

Upon closer inspection of my skin I think I need to go back to SPF 50+ 'cause I am not supposed to be this 'tan' and my face is starting to show all the sun damage! =P

Keep on movin'

I was busy moving so I haven't posted in almost a week, I think! Yikes. My nails are not looking their best but they are getting stronger and looking better every day!

These are my nekkid nails right after moving, they are very sad, I know.

Here they are with ridge filler (yay) and China Glaze For Audrey. These nails are making me feel better about everything, seriously! I got the idea to do For Audrey 'cause I was shopping and found a big picture of Audrey Hepburn with a kitty cat on her shoulder, still debating whether or not I should go back and get it!
I got an idea to do a comparison post between ridge filler and no ridge filler, I never knew how ridgey my nails really were 'til I started using it! =)

Also coming up:
Some Lush stuff reviews
OPI My Private Jet (holo?)
Sinful Colors Halloween colors

...stay tuned!

Dear OPI,

I love your polish but dislike your brush due to small nail beds. Is there any way that you can sell me smaller brushes for all of my beloved OPI polish colors?
Danielle C.

This is how I feel and it bothers me greatly but I do so love my OPI polishes! Today I have Lucerne-tainly look Marvelous? Don't make fun of my incorrect spelling and naming. It is pretty, I love it, I was dreaming about it and that's how I knew it was time to go buy it!

Don't click on these, my cleanup is horrible cause I'm in the process of moving and therefore don't have all of my stuff in one place anymore! =[

This is such a unique blackish silver! It was perfectly fine with 2 coats!

I wonder how good it is at Konad...? As soon as my nails are long enough I think I will try.

In other news, I used a ridge filler base coat the last time I polished my nails and I was floored by how nice my nails looked, I will definitely have to show some before and after shots, I see a difference!

Vintage-y Sort of Day

To make up for my post on running have China Glaze Riveter Rouge! This color is so pretty in theory but I don't know how I feel about it on my fingers...hmm. It didn't clean up very easily which made for a sad Aggie but oh well. It also didn't last long before chipping, base coat issues maybe? I have not a clue.

I still have little bitty bits of nubs still as the tips of my nails are going to be weak til they grow all the way out! =P
You can see more of the sparkle at this angle, but I only captured two of my nails, oh well. I got my Lush stuff so I will be reviewing it in a couple days when I get a chance...I am also moving, I have lived in the same place for the last 4 years! It kind of breaks my heart but it is time to move to something bigger and nicer!

Some Labor Day 'Haulage'

So, here I am doing a 'haul' of sorts but really I was just so totally excited for this I had to share! I have been talking almost non-stop about these shoes for weeks to my husband and since he needed a new pair of shoes and all the shoes were buy one get one half off I decided it was time for me to get these! Introducing the Reebok RunTones! squeeeeeeeeee!
These are so awesome! I obviously don't invest money in shoes that 'look good' lol!

Look at that price tag! Yikes, for running shoes you might ask, ones that I will inevitably have to replace in 6 months time...Oh well. And they were supposed to be excluded from the sale but the guy ringing us up  didn't realize and I wasn't about to point it out, lol.
I've already taken them for a spin so they are dirty but they are like little balance balls on the bottoms and yes, my calves hurt and I have very thick, muscular calf muscles and they still hurt after a mere 1 mile jaunt!

I forgot to take this so my 'run' was more of a labored jog/skip with lots of wheezing! Whoops, I was just so excited to try the shoes out!
Maggie likes to go running too and she saw the shoes and was pretty interested in going again!
Now she's looking at a cat while she is all cuddled up with one of Daddy's black socks! haha!
She's far too tired to chase the kitty or go for another run tonight she says, hahaha. OK, Mag-Pie...we'll go tomorrow and remember to take Mumma's inhaler!

Hope everyone in the U.S. had a good Labor Day weekend and back to school and work for us all tomorrow and hope that everyone not in the U.S. had a good Monday, our Monday is tomorrow, lol!

I May be Short but not on Personality!

Hello everyone, as said in my last post---no link, you can check it out yourself 'cause I'm lazy---I am going to try the Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, I'm very excited, it just shipped yesterday so can't wait for it and some other goodies to get here!

Question: Would you like me to do 'hauls'? I like  looking at some folks but after a while I just get depressed 'cause it seems like some people just have limitless funds, and especially from YouTubers (the ones that are still in high school) and they have more high end makeup than I have cat hair on my black shirt today! =P

This all being said, here's a pic of my little bitty nails with one of my all-time favorites, Sinful Colors Mint Candy Apple.

Note, 2 coats and no cleanup! Amazing polish, really!

I really like this picture 'cause you can see my pants that look like an old couch in the background. =)

I am in school so I will have a hard time posting and commenting but I will do my darn-dest to keep up in this awesome blog-o-sphere. 'til next time, I think everyone should have a piece of hideous clothing that they love to wear just to buck society!
