The weekend is in sight! What plans do you have, gals? I am going to be giving me’self a mani, I am (to be read in a Cockney accent). With the goodies I received from Andrea at Long Days, Short Years. We were paired for this spring nail polish swap and I am excited to share with you the pretty things Andrea shared with me.
Spring Nail Polish Swap
I struggle so with my nails. Have always been hard on my hands. Using the computer, shelving books, doing crafts with little ones as a librarian. Lately it’s with the spring cleaning that seems to span the 4 seasons. Can’t seem to stay home long enough to get it done between March and June. It’s one of the activities on my 2018 spring bucket list, here, but at this rate, might get pushed onto summer. Probably own at least a half-dozen pairs of plastic gloves but can’t remember to wear them. Ha! Put them on today just for you!
And check out that carefully coordinated purple sponge. PC must have picked it out.
That’s something else that happens a lot more, now that I am older…forgetfulness. Also have gardening gloves but have worn the fingertips off of every pair. Adding those to my Walmart list for today. And because I haven’t worked since November for that extra mad money, my retirement funds don’t allow for salon manis and pedis.
What’s a girl to do? Sign up for the spring nail polish swap! Then sit down long enough to do a home mani and pedi. That’s on the docket for my Friday as a celebration for finally finishing the spring clean upstairs – 2 bedrooms, a study, a loft, 2 bathrooms and a big ole hall. Yay for ME!
Check out the goodies from Andrea that I’ll be using to pamper myself a bit.
Look at that luscious shade of lavender nail polish. How did Andrea know that PC’s fav color is purple!! And what gal doesn’t love a little glitter in her life? Thinking I might just get really crazy by painting 4 fingers lavender and one finger in glitter! Utterly unlibrarian of me.
Have always wanted to try Jamberry wraps and now I can. Thank you, Andrea! Wonder if I can bribe PC with a Pepsi to help me apply them? Maybe a 3 liter bottle?
Learned about the spring nail polish swap over at Tanya’s blog The Other Side of the Road. Wonder if there will be a summer nail polish swap? Maybe by then I can get the downstairs clean and grow my nubby nails out a bit.
Tell me about your nails? Tips? Powder? Gel? Are you good about wearing gloves when you garden and clean house? Maybe that should be a summer goal. Most of the time my hands look so masculine and war-torn that I sit on them in public, which probably doesn’t help things at all either!!
Was headed to Walmart but my Prince just called to say there is a SWAT situation going on at our neighborhood store. Such a sad day in someone’s life.
Grateful to all the gals who coordinated this spring nail polish swap and to Andrea for my goodies. Be safe wherever your day takes you.
Hugs and kisses,
