how i know i'm on vacation?

Dreaming about nails. Cray cray. I had a dream last night that my college asked me to create and teach a nail design course. Hell yeah. Could you imagine? That would be totally awesome. My dreams are typically scary work dreams... even though I go home to sleep at night, I feel like my mind never actually leaves the office.

While the boyfriend still sleeps, I get to procrastinate being any sort of productive by blogging. Two posts in a row is a new record for me. Heh heh. At least for this year.

When student teaching starts, I plan to still work anywhere from 30-50 hours a week, depending on how many hours I get at my second job. With that being said, I'm going to be even busier than I was the past few semesters- which I admit, I didn't think was possible! The past few days I woke up at 6am to go to the gym before work. I think that as long as I have really good discipline, I can get everything that I want to get done done. Here's hoping for the best.

Today, we're going to the Cheesecake Factory for a midday lunch/dinner and to walk around these shops that (I think) are right near the restaurant. I need to go to Sephora. I've started wearing makeup again and my tinted moisturizer is embarrassingly old. Once I get my new stuff, I may do a review of the makeup that I use. I am obsessed.

Anyway, today I'm showing you a manicure I wore last week. See, even though I don't *actively* post, I do try to paint my nails! I'm even gonna paint them today! ;D I rebelled and wore bright pink even though it's winter. I mean, I usually don't care about that type of thing, but winter kills my mood and makes me typically wear dark shades.

I feel like I've been using a lot of essie polishes lately. This is Essie Peach Daiquiri (the name is delicious enough) with an accent of Essie Beyond Cozy. I absolutely ADORE Beyond Cozy. I think it's gorgeous. I literally feel like I'm wearing the most beautiful diamond ring when I have this on my accent finger. I get so many compliments on manis like this. They're simple, but easily noticable.

This mani lasted almost a week with some minor chips. The formula on both polishes were outstanding, but I had some SLIGHT visible nail line (VNL) with Peach Daiquiri. I could've stood to do one more coat, but I didn't entirely feel like it.

What do you think?


  1. Cute mani! I really like it. Your dream is funny. I'm sure it felt real while it was happening too, lol.

    1. Thank you Marisa! I have the most bizarre dreams, but sometimes they're so funny.

  2. I love the accent nail! it goes really well with the red :)

  3. This is a really nice bright mani! And good luck with student teaching and working at the same time! I did both and it was HELL on me - student teaching is seriously like full time work. And if your school is the same as mine, you'll get even more work from advisors and all that nonesense! In the end it's worth it :)

    1. Thank you! I planned to barely work at all and just focus on student teaching, but I can't bring myself to do that! I want to keep saving up so I'll have lots of play $ in the summertime! Thanks for the well wishes!!
