CONGRATS to my first 2 winners :P 2 down and 3 to go

Congrats to Jennie & Amber, who were the 1st and 2nd winners chosen for my blog giveaway!! They have both already been contacted and gotten back to me :) Hope you guys enjoy them.

Now, I just need to vent a smidge - I could just scream at this point you guys! The past week has been so frustrating and sad. To start off, I had sent a swap package out 2 Friday's ago to California. I checked the tracking number, and it said it was delivered in Florida! Umm....not even close post office. So I call and complain, they say they will have to look into it, blah blah blah. I never hear a word from them, but a few days later, the girl I sent them to, received the package, and told me it appeared as though it was opened! Anyways, long story short, not only was my package to her opened, but someone, took 1 of the 3 polishes I sent, and replaced it with candy!!!! Who does that! Then on Friday of last week, I get informed that a friend of mine was in a TERRIBLE car accident, had to have his car's roof removed, and he was helicoptered to the hospital. He is very lucky to be alive, but is still not even close to recovery. Then on Saturday, while hanging out with our friends and the wife of the man that was in the wreck, I get bit by our friends dog, really hard on my forearm. Thank goodness I had a few drinks in me by then, otherwise I would have been in tears and on their floor, lol. It was my fault for playing to rough, eeekkk. Anyways they wrapped me up, and we just continued with our night.

Okay, now that I got that out, lol. We can get on with today's mani post. After a sweet reader of mine, evercouldbe, suggested I try the brand Guppy, I of course had to. I love trying new brands, and especially cheap ones :) I ordered 5, off of eBay, and will post the rest of them this week, hopefully. Let me just say, she was right, the colors are so pretty, and the formula is really nice. Although a few of mine really smelled, it wasn't to bad.
This one is #66. I did 2 coats and a coat of SV.

  8. Oh horrible week, I hate it when something happends with the post. I sent some imageplates to a friend, the letter (where the imageplates were wrapped in) arrived but the plates were stolen out of it. It couldn't been an accident because otherwise the letter should have been gone too.

    I love the polish btw.

  10. Oh dear, that is a rough week. Stealing from a package, that is so wrong!

    I pray that your friend gets a full recovery. I've been in a bad car accident, horrible thing to go through.

    How's the bite? Make sure you keep the wound clean. (nurse in me is coming out lol) I still have the scars from when my cousin's puppy attacked me lol.

    Hope this week is a million timles better than the last!

  14. So so sorry to hear that. I hope your friend is going to be okay. And that your arm is going to be too. It's good to have a blog to vent your stuff.

  17. A big hug to you-- I hope your arm and your friend heal quickly! And stealing from packages is just wrong, ESP when it's polish!! I just had a package of 3 SH nail Prisms go missing and I'm so disappointed. Tracking number said it was delivered but it wasn't. Post office wont help. Now I'm out $$$ and nail polish! Boo!!! Love that Guppy btw.

  19. candy is a poor substitute for polish :D your mani is beautiful tho

  20. If you were bitten and your skin is ruptured, you need to have antitetanus shot, because of certain germs in dogs' salive that may be harmful to humans, but completely safe for dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm so sorry to hear about hellish week! That story about replacing the polish with candy is sooo weird! WHO DOES THAT?!! Strange. I really hope your friend recovers quickly and I'm so sorry to hear that. I agree strongly with the comment above me. If the bite broke the skin, you need to be sure you are up to date on your tetanus shots, it could be dangerous. Please get that checked out, if you haven't already. I've known people that have gotten infections from dog bites. Venting feels awesome, huh?

    Pretty polish color and pictures!! Makes me want a color like that!!

    Take care!!

  24. What a week! So sorry to hear that your package was opened and a polish was stolen!
    Wish your friend all the best, and of course for you too.
    Hope this week will be much better!

    Lots of love, Leontine

  25. Sorry about your week! I recommend chocolate! I had a cruddy week and treated myself to homemade cream cheese brownies and it helped a bit for sure!

    I watch a lot of forensic tv shows and I have to say this is a first in which nail polish is stolen! How crazy is that?! The only thing that would make stolen polish ok would be really good candy (which I'm sure it wasn't)!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow aren't we all in a pickle. My brother got into a car accident like a week and a half ago, and so much stuff has been happening. I hope you and your friend recovers quickly. I hate it when you send some things and somehow ended somewhere else before you gets it and find out some stuff is missing or replace.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ooooeeh pretty shade!

    I am sorry about your horrible week and hope your friend will recover soon!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Three accidents and now your luck will hopefully change! I wish you luck!

    Guppy is really great! This color does look original and interesting to me...

    ReplyDelete
  29. So, I just bought SV, But my nails stil dont look as shiny as yours!!!! How do you get them so shiny? do you use the dry fast top coat, or a diffrent version?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jeez Louise is right! You poor thing. I hope everything works out with your friend. Replaced with candy? What the?

    Guppy is nice. Can't wait to see the other 4!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am sorry to hear that the midden hit the ventilator! Might I recommend Epsom salts for your bite?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you all so much!!! My friend is doing better, and my bite is healing, lol. Oh and the post office and I are officially in a fight!

    lnievin, IKR?? Who steals polish, and only 1 bottle!

    jillian, I only use Seche Vite fast dryng top coat. I do occasionally use 2 coats, but I glob that stuff on like there is no tomorrow :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG! what a terrible week for you.. hope you and your friend are feeling better now.

    i was totally shocked about the package delivery. who would do such a thing and replace it with candy on top.. =/

    p.s. totally love your PINK WEDNESDAY !! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm sorry to hear about such bad news. :( I guess something's in the air lately, I'm having rough days, so is a friend of mine and my cousin ... hope we all get through!
    And about stealing nail polish in post offices - my worst case scenario and now that I've heard it can actually happen I feel even more anxious about it. Greedy little pigs they are. -.-

    ReplyDelete
  35. Keep us updated on your friend! Hospitals are not fun, and waiting for someone you care about in a hospital is even less fun.

    And wow...the nerve of some people. To have the audacity to put candy in the package, too. Sheesh.

    That color is beautiful! It looks like burnished metal. : D

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks you guys! Things are def looking up, so YAY!!

    Ulmiel, wow, well I hope everyone around you is doing better! I know, I am already nervous about shipping, thanks anxiety, lol. This has made it worse

    ReplyDelete
  37. That really sucks!! :(

    But, I'm sorry .. I had to laugh when you said that some stranger replaced the polish with CANDY!! As if no one would notice. Was the person that opened it 8 years old?? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  38. OMG I know, I told the poor girl, I was sorry because I too had to laugh. It was just so crazy!
