Sad News About Wally

Will and I had to put our beloved Wally to sleep on Monday. We went to visit him at the hospital and he was distressed and confused and having lots of trouble walking. The chances for improvement were not good and he wasn't ok. I know this is an unpleasant thing to post about but I felt like I needed to do so since he's had his own category on my blog right from the start.  He is always popping up in photos because he went outside with me everyday when I took pictures of my nails.

He was such a massive part of my every day and Will and I are having a hard time with his loss. I would love to hear what you've done to keep the memory of your beloved pet with you always. Did you get photos printed and framed? Maybe jewelry? I really fell like I need something tangible in the real world, more than my digital photos on the computer and phone. Any recommendations will be very much appreciated.

Also please feel free to share photos and stories of your beloved pets (those still with us or those who have passed on) in the comments too. I could use some cuteness to lighten my heart.

I posted a TON of photos and one video of Wally blowing in the warm wiond of the heating vent. It's so hard to choose and this is the last time he'll be in my blog so please indulge me and tell me how cute he was one more time.

Zoya Willa

Zoya Willa is from their Wishes collection for Winter/ Holidays 2014.
Overall this collection just doesn't do much for me but I am very happy to finally have a black creme Zoya polish. Zoya Willa is nothing special though, I have other black creme polish that apply like a dream in just one coat but Willa most definitely requires two. Very streaky at first but just fine. I'll be using it all the time for nail art. In fact I've already used it for my Burberry plaid nails!

Gradient With Zoya Claire & Ryan

Sometimes the simplest manicures turn out the loveliest. I sponged a bit of Zoya Ryan on top of Zoya Claire, then added my topcoat and magic happened. I took a ton of photos of this combination since I loved it so much.
 
 
 My dog, Wally, is adorable!

Maybelline Denim Dash

A friend of mine recently gifted me a few dozen nail polishes including this stunner, Maybelline Denim Dash! I love blues, matte finishes, and one coat wonders and Denim Dash is all three rolled into one perfect polish. I've never seen a matte polish apply so nicely, self-leveling in just one easily applied coat. The color is gorgeous too, a nice medium toned blue with silver micro shimmer. Thanks Kay for all of the polish!

Zoya Wendy

Zoya Wendy is my favorite from the Tickled Summer 2014 collection! It's a bright pink with strong coral leanings that I absolutely love! Great formula that covers in just 2 coats and made me happy every time I looked at it. My boyfriend Will also loves it & immediately used it for his toes. It looked darn good on him too! I took a ton of pictures of this beauty including a few of my adorable dog Wally & a shot with my beloved Rockport loafers. Wendy is an EXACT match for the chain detail on them!

Revlon Glimmer Gloss Stripes

My friend Casey gave me these two fantastic Revlon Glimmer Gloss polishes & they look great together. I started with a base of Revlon Banana Blaze & then added freehand stripes of Revlon Cherry Fizz. My nails looked like candy!

Chevron Tips With Zoya; Or The Day I Left The House In My Pajamas

This post from Zoya live was the inspiration for these nails, pairing a matte polish with something super shiny. My version with Zoya Dream & Zoya Phoebe turned into one of my favorite manicures of the year. I love this color combination!
 
Now a brief word about my outfit. I went to a pajama party that night with Chuck Palahniuk, Chelsea Cain, & Monica Drake! It's not easy to figure out what to wear to a public pajama party... My hometown is very lucky to have Booksmart Tulsa bringing incredible author events to town on a regular basis. This one was really over the top. More than 900 people at the downtown library that is closed for renovations. Vandalism allowed! LED beach balls! Spooky stories! Lots of fun! Below is a quick video of the insanity.

Zoya Kerry


Zoya Kerry is from the Summer 2013 Irresistible collection.

I've never seen a yellow metallic like Zoya Kerry! Shown here at three coats with no top coat. (I rarely use top coat on metallic polishes since they just don't seem to need it) Kerry catches every lit bit of light & reflects it back, making this polish practically glow even in low light. A gorgeous new favorite for sure!!
