Quick Update....Painting a little more than just my nails

I just wanted to check in with those of you who are wondering what's going on with me. I'm still here, Just taking a little mini break. As many of you know I've been slowly working on fixing up a house with my Husband. We are now at the point where we are able to paint so my weekends and any time after work has been spent going over there and painting. I'm exhausted to say the least and my neck feels like it can't support my head anymore from painting miles and miles of crown molding. When we bought the house we ripped out all of the baseboards, doors and frames, trim, molding...  It was all globbed up with years of paint and not worth saving. So I've had the pleasure of painting all of the new trim. I will be happy when it's all done, I was sick of filling nail holes with wood putting and sanding. I felt like I did that for years so while the painting is going on forever it's great to see all my hard work prepping paid off because this trim looks amazing with some fresh paint on it. I haven't had much energy and time for the blog but once things calm down and the house gets covered in Fresh paint I will gladly trade paint buckets for bottles of Nail Polish.

Tonight I finished putting on the second coat of paint on all the crown molding so that means we can paint the ceilings in all the rooms. After the ceiling is done Walls are getting painted!! I have to say for someone who is so into Colors like me, picking colors for the walls has been stressful so far we finally picked a color of the kitchen (haha got lucky on that we decided grey was the way to go and we went to lowes and happened to see their oops paint and found a 5 gallon bucket of a grey and it was only 35 bucks... I could not pass that up and the color is amazing. I was thinking darker grey husband was thinking lighter and this just happened to be right in the middle and we got a deal and we don't' have to fight over colors!!! hah hooray!) and adjacent room and our bed room but I still have no clue what we are doing for the hallway and living room and the entrance. I've also been spending a lot of time looking at wallpapers for the entrance room.... It's bad I now want to Wallpaper everything... Okay Clearly I'm very tired and I'm Rambling. I just wanted to check in and let you guys know what's going on with me. I'm very happy about painting even though it's a lot of work because it means we're so much closer to moving in. There's still a list of things that have to get done but at least I can start seeing the progress and actually help out! Refinishing the floors is next well we still have to put down the baseboards so I'll temporary have to go back to filling nail holes and sanding but I'm very happy to put in this extra work .... okay passing out I'll try to throw up a post soon... I Miss you Guys!! Wish me Luck on finding the strength to pick colors... I'm thinking I should just pick favorite polishes and have them color match them at this point!!

Polish Addict Black Tie Parade

Today I've got a look at Black Tie Event by Polish Addict. It's a multi-colored glitter in a black gel base. I had to layer several coats to get it to this opaque look. You could layer it over a black and only use 1-2 coats but then you won't have the depth from all the layers of glitter. This polish is so fun and festive and there wasn't anything I did not like about it.

Here is a link to the Polish Addict Store:
