In the midst of my busy "let's get ready for today" morning I did have time to do my nails. I used one quick coat of Foil Me Once as an opaque base for Pretty In Polka. One coat, dried quick!
Since I was in such a hurry I tried to be as careful and meticulous as possible. This is exactly how everything looked after application. No clean-up. Not bad, eh? I mean... not perfect, but definitely wearable. lol
Absolutely loooooove black and white glitter! It makes my heart happy. ^_^
Got another email from Models Own. So soon? Yes, apparently. This time they're trying to kill us with glitter.
Glitter fireworks! Am I the only one who got instantly excited by the fireworks in the pictures? Stupid marketing schemes... :p
Had to run up to PetCo to get more algae wafers for his friend's pleco, while we were there we picked up some buddies for the neons to play with.
Black neons this time. I wanted the "glo-light" tetras (different from the blacklight responsive ones, glo-light look like regular neons except that their blue strip is bright orange), but they only had five of them and I would have wanted to get all five. These black ones are working out well, though.
They're going through phases of clumping with their own kind and mixing it up together. I'm having to keep an eye on the tank at the moment. It got up to 84 degrees so I unplugged the heater. Going to have to save up for one of those good ones with a temperature control dial on it.
Funny story. While we were at Asian Buffet I was, at first, a little agitated when they kept seating families (with little kids) right next to us. Ya know, because normally little kids make a lot of noise. Turns out today was different. All of the kids were really well behaved (I believe in giving credit when it's due), but the full-grown butthead behind us was another story. Talking loud enough to be heard from three tables away. About various real estate nonsense. Nonsense? Yeah, because even the people seated with him didn't care what he was talking about. I could hear them groan and give non-committal "uh-huh"s every so often. This guy... did not shut up the whole time. My parents knew I was agitated even before Aaron did. I kept staring at him (Aaron) trying to come up with a really good off-color joke I could tell at the same volume this guy was talking in to see if I could shut him up. Sadly my dad is a way better joke teller than I am and I just could not come up with one. So we just sat there, Aaron carrying on most of the conversation, me making faces at the guy (who was to my back) every now and then. All in all it was a fun time. Even the ride up was fun. My sister's been using my mom's van so we took my car. I let my dad drive so Aaron wouldn't be awkward in the back seat with him and I went on about how nice it was to be in the back seat being driven around and I should hire a chauffeur. :p As if I have that kind of money. lol
Doing a quick swatch-test. Tomorrow I'm going to pair Sage Smash with either Blue-Mmmm or Hello Summer!. Oh yeah, we didn't go to HEB today so I have to hope that the Ticket to Paradise polishes are still there tomorrow... *frets* For now I'm going to pop off Pretty In Polka and watch my new fishies for a bit. Gooz-frabba and all that. Hope everyone has a terrific weekend!
