Just Chilling

20130430-142619.jpgThat’s my baby iguana Shaggy! He be looking mad as hell so chill in this picture. He is helping me rock out my new nail color for you all. I got him back on February 20, just over 2 months ago. He still trying to get use to us but I’m sure he be cool and chill soon. We have plenty of time to get to know each other and have fun.

He is real small still which makes me nervous he is just going to jump off and hide in the house but he hasn’t yet. I charm him with nice warm baths and massages and he just melts in my lap and chills out.











At this point we aren’t able to tell if Shaggy is a male or female but after this I’m like he has to be male, he just chilling asleep on my chest just like a man would. But I love him anyway. I had one two three iguanas when I was young and they were pretty awesome. So as an adult when the opportunity presented itself I had to have him!


My brother rescued an iguana Iggy when we were young. Once we had him a few months and my younger brother had to have one too and we got a full grown iguana named Rex. When I say full grown I mean big, he was longer than our bathtub and we had a leash for him to walk him around our property. Unfortunately Iggy passed away because he was a rescue animal and was tortured,  we feel good that during the last of his life we were able to give him something better. Rex was a full grown adult male and he passed away in age. At least that is what we were told. We think he was lonely when my brother wasn’t with him cause he was at his moms half the time. After Rex passed away my younger brother decided he needed another one. He purchased a baby and he was evil a feisty little iguana. Rex Jr escaped his outdoor cage a few months after we had him. That’s when the iguana love stopped. It was a long 3 years for us all but with 8 kids in the house only so much we could take. But we loved each of them equally and Shaggy is now my iguana and I couldn’t be happier with my buddy.

I have every intention of having Shaggy in our lives for years to come and making him a big part of our soon to be blended family. I can totally be okay with just my lizard as our pet but I’m sure more to come. But I am very content!

I removed Gel Polish at home and in 10 minutes(a hand)! I came out on the successful end but now looking at my nails I need some real TLC!





I love to do my nails so much!

I feel so great when I have some fresh polish and design on my fingers. I feel so special and confident. But I must confess that I am a baby nail expert! I was originally a nail biter so doing my nails and having LONG nails at that is foreign enough to me! I can use any tips you can throw my way! I got the idea above from the Lauren Conrad site. I just Googled cause I was going bonkers with the gel polish STILL on my nails and having new polish I wanted to use! But now I don’t think such a great idea to cover these and now it’s time to get some home remedy ideas and such to help my nails get their strength back and become healthy again. I should let you know for any tips you throw my way, I AM ON A BUDGET 😛 I mean who isn’t but it is like a $5 max a week if I am really good and don’t eat take out at all! I got a Meijer Store and a Walmart to get things I need. I have never been a online shopper but I could explore the idea a little more. I just really wish a Nail Shop existed near me that had all the stuff for nails!

I am hoping to do my girl Amy’s Nail Challenge that she has been participating in but I think I need to get my nails to a good place cause 30 days of nail designs and such are going to take a toll on them for sure!

Hope to hear from all of you fellow nail lovers

What can I say I love my dorky peace sign nail pictures! Oh and check my new glasses RocaWear 😀


I am not ashamed of my feet at all I kinda think they are THE BEST and are cute. I am a size 8 1/2 and no one believes it cause they are so cute and petite looking. This design was more of a I’m bored not trying hard but kinda reminds me of a real good summer watermelon. I used the NYC colors I just bought on my toes 😀 Very pleased not a cheap 2-3 coats to get color in bottle definitely buying more!!


I have been seeing so many Plum Shades and thought “Why haven’t I tied this color yet?” So there it is my plum! Confession…I didn’t do the actually painting. I really needed some love and got a manicure and had them paint but I chose colors with NO HELP from Nail expert WHOOHOO!! Usually I let them help or make suggestions but I knew what I wanted, for once, and I love it!

This is my nails for the next few days! I love each time I do my nails but never last long and I get a new fun idea to do. This idea came to me in my truck. Yep I was waiting on my fiancé to get off work and I had all my polish in truck, we travel a ton, and said hmm nail idea NAIL TIME!


And this is a silly picture of my “mobile nail salon” as my fiancé called it!


These are so simple and clean yet still fun! Definitely can’t wait to do a new color combo!!!

Later that day while visiting family from out of town my sista, from another mother, Amber was admiring mine and I told her I do mine all the time and showed her all my other designs and you guessed it I did hers too!

She loved them and was fun doing someone’s nails besides mine for once!! Enjoy and hope I brighten your Nail Day!!

Detroit Pink Polka-Dots 

My fiance bought me this Pink Detroit hat on Wednesday and this is where my inspiration for my new nails came from!


It isn’t my best work but it was fun to do some polka-dots again been too long!


Below is a fun “I’m representing Detroit, Michigan” picture. You know you want to do it too!

Do you have a favorite city, state, sports team or something that you like to represent on your nails?

I have come to the conclusion that nail polish has saved my nails!

I use to be a HUGE nail biter, yes a very nasty habit, for over 20 years. My mom said I did it even as a small toddler. But when I decided it was time to make changes for new habits in my life I had to start with small things like, stop biting my nails. That takes some DEDICATION cause half the time I didn’t even know I was doing it!

But here I am 2 long years later and my nails are finally growing healthier and longer! I don’t bite or rip my nails anymore, I use all the tools that you should use. My nail clippers, files and cuticle trimmers, and who would have known I had it me the whole time if I would’ve just taken the time. Now I am building a small collection of nail polish and might I say there are a ton of colors and combinations out there to try! When  was young it was one color, one coat and Bada-Bing Bada-Boom you were done. Now I have water, brushes, tooth picks, swabs, tape, and so many other things that help make my nails FABULOUS! I can be having a anxiety attack or bored out of my mind but if I grab my polish and I am good. I guess I just switched habits if I really look at it. Nail Polish Addict is way better than nail biter!

If you have any ideas or color combos you want to share let me know! Here are a few examples below I have tried and done! ENJOY!!!
