Mani Monday: Julep Zelda

mani monday: julep zelda
Not sure if it’s the flu, or just a really bad cold… but something wicked is tearing its way through our house. Poor Cordelia has been hit the hardest and went from having a bit of a cough and a slight fever on Friday, to spending all day yesterday cuddled up on me while she tried to sleep, and all last night in our bed because her ‘cough is owies’. Is winter over yet?

I wanted a fun manicure this week, but needed something that would dry very quick because she was only sleeping for 15-20 minutes at a time if she wasn’t on me. Thankfully, Julep Zelda is a very quick-to-dry polish (by the time I finish painting, they are almost dry), and only requires 2 coats for full coverage, and the KBShimmer Lace Water Slide Decals are super easy to apply, even if in the middle of applying a feverish toddler climbs in to your lap.

Happy Monday everyone! Everyone in our house is finally (basically) healthy again and we had a nice relaxing weekend, so I am ready to get back on track and posting regularly – starting with another KBShimmer Water Slide Decal manicure. My cuticles are already so much better than they were last week, and with reduced stress levels and being healthy again they will be even better by next week.

This time I went with the super cute Mod Kitty design… I think I am hooked on these. I didn’t wait long enough to remove the excess from all of them so I messed up the design a bit, but from a distance you can’t really tell. The set I put on last week was still in fantastic shape when I removed them yesterday, and even though I still have 3 or 4 sets to try out I am already looking at ordering more.

I hope you are all having a fantastic long weekend! I know today is a holiday but it’s miserable out so we are hanging out at home watching movies, and it’s been almost a month since I did my nails… I am long overdue!

I wanted to break out a couple of my favorite holos, and decided on KBShimmer‘s Blue-d Lines & Up and Cunning. Started with 3 coats of Blue-d Lines, and then dotted on Up and Cunning followed by a coat of Clearly on Top. Hopefully the rain and clouds go away soon… these holos are pretty, but in the sunlight they are gorgeous!

Cordelia thought it would be fun to help with taking and editing photos today, and now she’s happily playing with her LeapFrog ‘Leaptop’. I can’t believe she’ll be 2 in just a couple weeks ♥.
