It has been a really tough year. Wedding planning took up more time and energy than I ever wanted it to, but now that we are two weeks out, I am revitalized and ready to throw myself into the blog again. Hopefully, I will be able to pull some readers back.
A quick rundown of events of the last six months.
1. My nails were tired, rundown, chipped and they just weren't holding polish.
2. I planned a wedding and will be getting married in two weeks!
3. My fiance fell at work and has been off, had surgery, and has been in a cast.
4. His work fought the claim, so we have been on one income the last two months (two months before the wedding)
5. We have to prepare for a hearing now and dealing with a lawyer right before the wedding.
So basically it was like a mini-bout of depression, without the depressed mood. I've been handling it all pretty well, but I have had to just deal with it and not have any time or money for distractions, now I am slowly getting back to my normal self and I am ready to start blogging again.

Things have been slow as far as nails go. I am giving my nails a break, because under all this polish they are getting weak and ugly. But maybe by the end of this week, I'll be ready to create again. How do y'all keep your nails in a polish mood?
Here is a mani I did for the last week, an easter egg mani. I used CG Light as Air, Essie MCA, and Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow. With the other two colors nearby, the Light as Air came out really lavender, which was nice, and the mellow yellow was not as soft as I wanted, but it definitely reminded my of Easter eggs.

I decided to do an unconventional St. Pat's Day Mani, because I knew I would be decked out in my green anyway, and thought I would play with the rainbow.
Red- an unnamed Red I got for Xmas, that I really like
Orange- OPI on the same paige,
Yellow- SH Extreme Wear, Mellow Yellow
Green Zoya Midori
Blue- China Glze Shower Together.
I am really proud about the way it came out, though I would love better quality of this shade of red-- any suggestions?
