Mermaid Nails


I've been wanting to paint my nails for a while and finally did today. I always am hesitant to paint them because my nails grow super fast. So by Sunday they will probably already be all grown out and ugly. Does anyone else have that problem? Anyways this nail look is from cupcakes and cashmere and I love it. I used Revlon's 320 Jaded instead and some NYC glitter polish for the ring fingers. I really like this color, it's taking some getting used to though.

So- I am out of shape. I know when small people say that people get really upset but I'm not saying I'm fat, just out of shape. I have no muscle whatsoever. To remedy this I started doing the 5-day workout from Seventeen Magazine with my mom. It's more fun when we're both whining and complaining about it. But it's also bad, because we support each other...in skipping a lot of days.

Last but not least here is a picture of the blueberry monster. I was in my backyard picking blueberries from our blueberry bush (I know you're jealous- fresh blueberries are the best) and there comes Misty under my feet, climbing all over me and pushing me out of the way so she can get the ones that fall to the ground. What a good dog.

I love the way you presented the photos in this post, with the translucent white bar. Nice.

Great nail color! My friend bought something similar a while back and I was skeptical of how it would look, but it looks awesome from your pictures so I think I'm sold... Now I have to buy my own bottle of this color.

What a sweetheart :D

And you should get a gym membership. I think that when I leave the house to workout, I end up staying longer and doing more because my shower isn't 2 feet away!:P

I wish my nails would grow faster... but I guess it would be annoying to have to redo them all the time. Love that color!
