Can You Hear the Music?

Hey Everyone! It has been a long day! I have to apologize for not posting yesterday. I am going to blame President Obama! I don't like politics so I am not even going to go there but my son had to watch the State of the Union Address last night. We had to watch it with him of course and explain it all to him. It was great fun. Between that and the cold it was a great night lol.

The puppy went for a very brief trial in his new home tonight. It didn't work out at all. The puppy was overly excited and bit the boy and the child was scared. We don't think he bit him hard but it was enough to scare the boy. He has never bitten us but he LOVES my son and jumps all over him and plays with him and it is rough and I think it was too rough for a little child which probably made the situation what it was. I was sad to see him go and sad to see him come back because I don't want him to go to the shelter and if we can't find him a home it might come to that. If you all could send positive vibes for him to find a home we would appreciate it. I wish he could stay with us but it doesn't seem possible. I luff him and I don't want him to go but it is not my decision.

So tonight I have a mani that I did for my son's last band concert. I did this really really rushed so it didn't come out as awesome as I wanted it to. I did the mani then had to run out to do an errand for the jazz band so I planned on doing the decals in the car before I went in. I lost one. Of course. I got one snoopy on there though. I didn't use a top coat and it was gone the next morning. I figured I would find it stuck to my forehead or something lol. 

This is one coat of Essie Waltz as a base then I stamped the music design from Konad plate M22 in CND Urban Oasis. 

I followed it up with two coats of Essie Waltz on top. I wanted to see what it would look like to sandwich stamping with a jelly polish. I really liked the subtle effect it gave it. 

I got one of the Snoopy decals on there. I didn't quite think that through though because you can see the music notes in Snoopy. I should have either put it on a plain nail or made sure Snoopy's head was not where there was stamping because Snoopy's head should NOT have music notes in it. Ah well. Next time. 

Waltz was pretty streaky for me and even with three coats you can still see some of the streaks. I don't like streaks. They make me kinda crazy. I was in a major rush though trying to get this ready between work and the concert. I am going to try it again when I have time to focus and take my time.

Ok, with that I am going to take some Nyquil and hopefully get rid of this sinus headache that is sitting right on my brow bone and behind my eye. 

That's all for now :)


  1. Very pretty mani! Sorry it didn't work out with the puppy:/ I hope he can stay at your home, the puppy needs long walks with you then he will (must) calm down;) Sending a load of the most positive vibes I have:D

    1. Thank you :)

      Ahh, the puppy. I want him to stay but I doubt it will happen. Our biggest issue with him is house breaking him. He is not cooperative. We let him out then he comes in and goes on teh floor.

      Thank you for the positive vibes!!!

  2. You need cake. Cake and drugs.

    1. Yes I do need cake. I got the drugs we will see if they work. Cake though I do not have yet. Must get!
