Such a Slacker

Ergh, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted, I didn’t make my usual Monday Mani post last week because I was coming home from my trip to Seattle. I planned on doing a follow-up This & That Thursday post, but that obviously didn’t happen either… I’m here now though!!

This first look is what I wore in Seattle. I didn’t want to wear something too crazy, but still wanted something fun. I felt like a sea foam-ish green would be perfect with a sea foam holo. The actual style of the mani is pretty basic and classic in my opinion, but it has that extra little kick with the holo. I really like this, I want to try it with some other cremes and holos that I have. **Sorry about this photo, I didn’t get a chance to take a decent picture of my mani until after I got home, so there’s a few days wear and grow out on these**

For my second look, I wore these once I got back from Seattle. I had bought the Simply Nailogical Zyler polish and got it in the mail while I was out of town. So, of course when I got back, I had to do something with my new polish. Since Zyler is a copper-orange holo, I wanted a bright creme orange to compliment it.

Colors used for Sea foam Seattle Sparkle mani:

  • Revlon – Eclectic (580)
  • Orly – Sparkling Garbage (20792)

Colors used for Orange Zyler Cat mani:

  • Wet n Wild – Club Havana (211B)
  • Starrily – Zyler the Cat

I used drugstore french mani strips for both looks.

5 RA’s + loads of coffee= ?

… it equals a lot of laughs, sometimes a few tears & struggles, and most importantly a strong & life long friendship.

Right now, I am headed to Seattle with some of the most important people in my life. JKJAB, as we call ourselves (Julie, Kailah, Jackie, Ashley, Brittany), is meeting up for our 6th annual trip. We all met working as resident assistances at the school we went to. Ever since a year after the last of us finished undergrad, JKJAB has gone on a trip together. We typically try to go to locations that the majority of us have never been before, however, sometimes budgets only allowed for more local trips but they’re just as fun.

Below are some pics from the past trips (and one while we were still in college). I plan on taking a ton of pictures this weekend and will share them when I get back. Gotta go get on my plane!

Have a great weekend,

Tootles! 🙂
