Happy Monday, everyone! It is a happy Monday for Phoenix Coyotes fans everywhere, as this past weekend, we won our first Pacific Division title in franchise history!! While I am so elated about this incredible accomplishment, I am the most happy for all the fans and season ticket holders who have stuck with this team since its inception and relocation to Phoenix in the mid-1990s. They really do deserve that banner, and I cannot wait for it to be hung in the arena at the start of next season! Ahhhhhh, I am so excited right now! AND the best part: we don’t have to play the Detroit Red Wings for a third year in a row! I rejoice wholeheartedly!
I cannot believe I am so excited for this year’s playoffs. Every single game is on TV, and I am probably going to be glued to my TV, watching all the games, and plotting new nail posts for the blog. :D
I will, however, be unable to go to one of the games this weekend, but the BF and I are sending louder Coyotes fans in our place to cheer for us, worry not! We will be in southern California for the Long Beach Grand Prix this weekend, aka our annual foodie & racing trip.
To celebrate, I have a super awesome mani for you! I hope you’re not too sick of lovely shimmer duochromes. Tonight I have the ever-so gorgeous Max Factor Fantasy Fire, which I received from a wonderful friend in Ireland who muled it for me! Thank you soooooo much, Tara! <3
I wish I had the original description for this polish, but I can’t find one. This is coat of Fantasy Fire over two coats of Essie Bobbing For Baubles. I love this combination because I haven’t really ventured away from putting duochromes like this over black or purple, but I’m really glad I moved out of my comfort zone!
I freaking love this over this gorgeous dark blue. I also love that the duochrome comes out a little easier in this polish. With Clarins 230, you have to work a little to get at the hidden green & gold shimmer. This one is pretty effortless; you can see it in all the photos except the first mani shot.
It’s like Master locks in Skyrim and not having a high-enough level to get the perk for it in the Lockpicking tree. As in, I have to go through 20 lockpicks to get a stupid chest open, and there’s only a Ruby and some piece of armor I can’t use? Aw heck no.
I know you hear me talk a lot about nail polish that glows on your nails, but damn it, look at it! Can I glow like that in real life? You know, just get me some GFP or something. Or RFP? I like red better. Except then I’d look like a Krarg (but less scaly…I do try to moisturize a lot more, you know!).
There are many good things happening right now; this polish combination is one of them. Thanks for reading! <3
