Welcome! So glad you stopped by my little bit of blogdom. Here I share my hobbies of nail polish, nail art and glue-on nails.

Where have I been and What have I been up to?

This week has been an unbelievable beast.

At the beginning of the week, I had 2 days, maybe it was 3 of migraines. Along with the migraines came insomnia. Like I can't get to sleep before 7am insomnia.

Well, I got the migraines taken car of, but the insomnia remains. I did get to sleep around 3:30am and I thought that was excellent because it was so "early." Ha-ha!

Today was the first day I've gotten out of the house. I went to CVS and did two things I swore I wasn't going to do. I bought magazines (because I had a 20% off the total purchase coupon) and...

I bought freakin' CRACKLE polish!

This is what happens when you feel like your head's going to explode from pain and then the pain goes away. You are bonkers and do things you said you weren't doing.

I said I wasn't going to buy any more magazines until after we move to California. That's not going to happen until the end of November. Now here I sit with 4 new magazines.

I haven't gotten on the crackle polish bandwagon. It just didn't seem like something for me. But then I saw a really cool pirate nail art on youtube using crackle polish and I was intrigued.

On the shelf at CVS there was a buy one get one half off tag for Sally Hansen Crackle polishes. When I went through the register, I had $3 CVS extra bucks back on my receipt and no 50% off. I had used a .50¢ off SH coupon too. The tag had expired 5 days ago and hadn't been removed. I guess with the $3 ECBs and .50¢ off coupon it was near enough half off. Next time I'll look more closely at their sale tags on the shelves. (*TIP-CVS will have Sally Hansens Buy One Get One Half Off starting Sunday)

Last week, I ordered some Barielle during a 30% off and free shipping deal. (Did I mention I had put myself on a no polish buy. Yeah, that's working out well too!)

Barielle Aura Angora, Cashmere or Loose Me, Polished Princess, Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat Antiqued Gold, Ink Splatter

I'll swatch these later, of course.

And because I've too much time on my hands...

Some screen shots from Aunt Marie's Trailer from the new show Grimm.
Aunt Marie's Tin Can
On the NBC website, Marie's Trailer is interactive. So I took some pics with my iphone.

The Big Leather Book of Knowledge
(Don't know if there's a name for it. I call it the book of spells, 
knowledge, legends and what-nots required for all supernatural shows.)

First Page. "G" for Grimm.
Inside the book: Drawings and handwritten notes.

Ok. I seriously LOVE handmade books like this. 
One of the reasons I watched Charmed--just to see stuff like this.
The inside of Aunt Marie's trailer is wicked cool. The ceiling has charts and maps decoupaged to it.
I love the way this is decorated. The attention to detail is amazing!
This is some place where I'd love to hang out.

What they've done inside of this trailer is a tribute to creativity and decorating genius.
Makes me want to go out and buy a Coleman trailer, gut it and fix it up like this.

Have you seen the ads for Grimm? If you follow it on twitter, you can see the full premiere with a secret link and code.  Grimm premiere's Oct 28. 

Can't wait!
