I have an addiction, it's nail polish.

I'll start this post out with admitting I have a problem. I'm addicted to nail polish. But it makes me happy and I should always pursue something that makes me happy right?

Anyway I've totally neglected this blog so I'll post my manicures from the past several months, if I can recall the color I'll also give those details as well!

What else is new? Well work is absolutely bananas because it is election season. Candidate interviews, candidate forums and endorsements and editorial boards .... oh my! Several contested elections in town plus the never ending drama regarding the school I shall not name for fear my blog will pop up it too many searches.

The continuing legal saga, involving said school, will not end either. And I am only finding out, on a weekly basis, more fuel to increase the firestorm that is this drama pit. Blah.

My personal life? Well I'm back on my official PKU diet, but I can't get my doctor/genetic counselor/nutritionist to reply to my emails and get my blood checked, so I really don't know how much on diet I am. It's aggravating and my desire to be on diet right now is low because it seems like my doctors could pretty much care less, which ticks me off. What if I was on the baby track? Which, to be clear, I'm not yet. But all this is setting the whole process of getting on diet back. I can't even order low-protein food because I need a letter from my doctor, who is not responding to me. Grrr. But no matter how low my motivation is to stay on diet, I continue to soldier on.

I get to visit my bestie Lauren this weekend with her cousin Marie, so that will be super fun.

Hockey is in a lockout, so Mike and I are devoting our time currently to the 49ers, for which we are newish fans. Football isn't the best substitute, but I'm ticked off the owners and the players can't get it together, they obviously care so little about the fans. I love hockey so much, but I am really upset that means nothing to the players or the owners. It's all about money.

Anyway, on to lighter things. Enjoy the photos!

This is the new watch I got last weekend. It's a Fossil watch. Love it!

This is from China Glaze's Fall Bohemian Collection - this is Swanky Silk. Loved this whole collection, got the whole thing!

This OPI Just Spotted the Lizard.

This is a red-orange. OPI Animal-istic.

A grey purple that I absolutely love. Zoya Caitlin.

Black nail polish under ORLY Mermaid Tale.

I thought this color was going to be more chartreuse not yellow. And it was scented, which I did not know before purchasing. Never. Again. It is Color Club Get Your Lemon.

Also over the summer I dabbled in gels, I like them because they last about a week without chips or pealing, but you have to have patience when applying. Really good for trips though. 

More gel with a little art I got for my birthday. 

More gel with glitter, I liked this one. I call it Starry Night. 

This was an experiment trying to encase regular nail polish between the base and top gel coats. It didn't work out all that great. This is OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes.

This is OPI Jade is the new Black, which I love, with a China Glaze Luxe and Lush (from the Hunger Games collection) over it. Luxe and Lush also looks really great with a purple base. 

This is the new nail polish shelf I got to stay organized, it is now completely full, because I am ridiculously addicted.

Pedicure I got in San Luis Obispo. Zoya Rica. 

Sinful Colors Savage (which actually came out matte, randomly) with Essie As Gold as it Gets on the tips. I really liked this combination!

And that is it for now my friends. Thanks for reading and hope I've momentarily entertained you.
