Hump Day Hare: A skittlette with Hare Polish 'Name Unavailable: Trademarked' and OPI 'My Silk Tie'



*purchased myself

Wooty-woo it's Wednesday! That also means it's  Hump Day! The weather is finally getting decent, my cold is almost gone, the best little sweet shoppe around the corner from my store is open ( hello soft-serve and a fatter ass!! ) my nephew and sister are doing so much better---I love life right now!! Tomorrow is also my birthday. Kinda having some mixed feelings about that since I'll be 29. One year closer to the "dirty 30" Ugh. In my best 4-year old son's voice "Me no wanna get older"

Today I'm participating in my first #HumpDayHARE post!!! My buddy Shelby of Shelby Lou Nails ( blog link ) is the resident Hare Queen and when I saw her swatch of "Name Unavailable: Trademarked and how she paired it with the studs, I needed that polish and I needed to pair it with some studs too.

Hairspray watermarble nail art: A mani for my new nephew!






Hey y'all!! Been awhile!! I have a reason for my absence though. My sister had her baby!!!!!! She was high risk so this has been a long week of waiting for her to go into labor and when he was born, there were some issues so he had to be rushed up to NICU. Everything is getting better and hopefully he's coming home this weekend!!!

In honor of my sweet Baby Moonpie ( his nickname ;-) ) I had to do a blue mani to celebrate! I'm an aunt for the first time and I'm just so smitten with the little guy. I had been wanting to try out a hairspray water marble for sometime now but I had been lacking the proper hairspray to do so. NO aerosol cans!! You have to get the good ol' spray pump. Funny hairspray story, when I was in middle school and had bangs, you know, the kind that you burned your forehead curling?



 One day I got a little overzealous with the hairspray and I ended up HAIRSPRAYING MY LASHES TO MY EYELID. Yep. It happened. I made it happen. Not my proudest moment but I didn't have to wear mascara that day!! Anyways, when I picked up the hairspray for the marble, I was reminded of that scenario and it gave me a little laugh there in the grocery store aisle.

ONTO THE NAILS!!
 This is what I used to create the look
