Hospitals and Starfish

So I had to go to the hospital again and they admitted me and did tests and found out I have some acid issues. Not good. I have some different meds now, though, and hopefully I can get it under control soon.

I have some gross pictures of my stomach and intestines that I thought about posting, but not sure how that would look so.. haha YEAH! My arm got all messed up from the tape and IVs. That I can show you:


The IV wasn't in my inner elbow, all that bruising is from the tape! The IV was on the side of my elbow where all the littler dots are. ANYWAY... 

Before all of this happened, I saw these cute nails on tumblr and decided I had to recreate them. I didn't stick to the exact design, and I definitely like how they turned out!

I regret not sponging down some gold glitter first, but they're still pretty beachy and fun! Started off with a base of Revlon's Sheer Nude. The blue is Towel Boy Toy (China Glaze), the green Kiwi Cool-Ada (China Glaze) and the pink is Make Some Noise (shockingly, China Glaze). 

I used NYC's Extra Shiny Top Coat because I liked the shine it creates, but I wanted to warn people against this top coat in general. Had I intended to wear this for more than a few hours, I would NOT have used Extra Shiny Top Coat. It cracks HORRIBLY. The first time I used it I had no idea and when I woke up the next day my design had literally shattered. 

I hope everyone is having a lovely and a less hot and humid week than me! Thanks for reading :)


  1. Wow this is such a cute mani! Looks amazing!

  2. oh noess i hope you're getting better! i really like the design you created (: have you tried NYC grand central station? i love that one as a top coat, it's super shiny and dries really fast :D

    STARFISH! You didn't tell me about the starfish! I need to find my dotting tools 'cause there's a few things I want to try out. Glad they figured out what's going on though so now you can get better :)

    ...STARFISH! Gah, they're so freaking CUTE! And somewhat realistic not like Patrick or anything...although I do love Patrick. :D

  5. I hope you're feeling better and that everything is ok?! The mani is so cute and amazing! I want to try!

  6. These are *adorable*! I hope you're feeling better and your health issues get worked out soon, but at least you can look down at your cheery nails and think summery thoughts! :)
