KBShimmer Blush Money is Perfect for Spring!

Hiya Guys!!

Wow...This post has been a long time coming! First let me start off by saying how much I missed it around here, second let me say that I did not mean to entirely disappear from the blogsephere all together. Initially when things got crazy, I was hoping that things would mellow out in a couple weeks, then that became after the holidays, then since I got a new puppy for Christmas (which I have pictures of!), it became by the end of January, and now here we are in May :l This long absence from all things nails, was NOT planned, but school, a new puppy, general life, and a incredibly weird eye infection that lasted a month (seriously!!..it was awful!), all took their toll on me, and left very little time left over for my nails. You should have seen the state my nails were in even just a few weeks ago :( They were sad, peeling, crazy bad cuticle messes! Thanks to BlissKiss though, my nails are at least passable! and so today I have some nubs to show off!!

For my first nail art in over a month, I wanted to keep it fairly simple, since I figured that I would be a tad rusty to say the least. So I started with a base of KBShimmer Blush Money, which is a gorgeous gorgeous spring pink, with not only holo, but gold shimmer throughout it. It is part of KBShimmer's 2015 Spring collection, and I just adore it. I picked up a few  polishes from this collection (of course all the holos! :P) and this one is a stand out for sure. If you only get one polish, I am certain it should be this one. It is just so pretty, and the gold shimmer makes it really unique. The gorgeous holo  nail porn on my ring finger is Different Dimensions Big Bang, and let me just say...LOVE...that is all that needs to be said, seriously..no other words...

Once that was dry, I stamped in Models Own Green Chrome, from the Chrome collection using Pet'la's Flower Plate. This was a special release plate for the Adventures in Stamping Facebook group, and it is no longer available. It was a one time release for AIS  members, and was sold in a group buy. I am sorry to tease with something that is no longer available, but I just adore this plate, and had to use it! I just love those flower/wisps things...I am not sure what the hell they are, but they sure are pretty! haha  I  top coated everything in KBShimmer Clearly on Top and voila! easy peasy spring nails! Which is right up my alley since I am so out of practice!

I really love how spring looking this is, winter was a crap season for me this year, although I always pretty much have no love for winter since I love the sunshine and the heat so much. These nails were bright and fun, and they did an awesome job of getting me excited.

Now, I promised puppy pictures at the beginning of this long and rambling blog post...soo without further ado, here is one of the better reasons my blog took a back seat the past couple months!

This is Ari. (pronounced Are-E) She is a Rottweiler, Border Collie mix. She is a rescue puppy and is just about a year old now. She is full of life and energy, and is the loveiest snuggley dog I have ever met. She is a lap dog trapped in a big dogs body. She is a serious baby, and fits in perfect with out family, and Loki.  Her and Loki actually make me feel like I have my own personal Dragon and Donkey (Shrek reference ftw!) She is also a handful, but aren't the best pets the ones that are a handful!? I just love her to pieces!! I am sure her's and Loki's shenanigans will sneak their way into this blog over the coming months, so I hope you all think she is cute!? Seriously though, with a face like that, how could you not!?

Alright guys and gals, I think that covers it for today. I really hope you all can forgive my insanely long absence. I missed it around here, and I missed even more having a place and community to share my passion. No one but the awesome nail art community gets my love and joy of polish, and nail art!  I can't promise that I will be posting more than once a week right now, since things in my life are still hectic and unfortunately that doesn't look like it will change in the near future, however I will make an effort to post at least once a week. I promise! I am hoping to at least get to posting on instagram a few times a week, since that doesn't require a whole blog post, and we all know how wordy rambley I can get :P It is like micro blogging, and is much more manageable for me at the moment, so if you aren't following, now is probably a good time to do so! :D Till next time Kittens! <3
