If you have been here for a while you know my obsession with my fingernails being painted, and if you are new here and don't know about my obsession there is never a time my fingernails are not painted. If for some reason they aren't painted I am being held against my will and I am signaling for help. 😉 Just kidding, but really I do like my nails being painted it helps me feel put together when the rest of my life is well....not at all. And after my last fingernail polish post I found out a lot of you also feel that way! So when I stumbled upon another nail polish gem I knew you all needed to know as well!

Ta Da! I found this nail dip starter kit at Walmart and I absolutely love it! First off it's super easy to use so don't be scared! It's not gel it's more of an acrylic powder. So all you have to do is paint the primer bond nail polish onto your fingernail and then dip it into the powder. Repeat until you get desired thickness paint the activation polish on buff the crap out of it to make sure you don't have any dips or waves, and put on your top coat.  

And look! It's not horrible! It says it will stay on for 21 days, I am three days in so I will let you know if I make it the whole 21  but so far I haven't had any chips or lift ups and it doesn't feel like its going anywhere anytime soon! 

Now remember professional I am anything. So no judgement on my nail pictures I did my best. And by best I mean I had like 2 seconds to try and snap a couple pictures before Goldie dumped another jar of applesauce on the floor. 

And I attempted to show the thickness but I don't know if you can really tell. But It isn't more than when I would get the rare chance to get acrylics done at the nail salon. I still need to work on filing it down towards the base of my nail but it doesn't feel weird or catch with it being a little higher. Also I have a little bit there on the side of my thumb that I didn't even notice until  I uploaded the picture  but a little nail oil took it right off. 

Okay last awkward fingernail photo, and a nice little photo bomb from Archer needing his hat fixed. 

So if you need a new nail polish option go get Color Club, Serendipity Kit, Dip Nail Polish. Then we can be twins!! 💜 

And just in case you were wondering this isn't sponsored.....I'm not that cool. 😜

Hello sweet friends! Its been awhile! Bear with me as I remember how to use this sweet little blog of mine, poor girl has been pretty neglected over the past few months! 

The urge to blog has hit again and who knows how long it will stay. 😉 So while it's here I figured I better at least pop in and say hello! 

Things are still trucking along here, kids are still growing up even though I have politely asked them to stop. 

Homeschooling is still going really well. Sure we have our days but all and all its going good! We are about to finish up our 3rd year which is nuts to me! It has all gone by so fast! 

Goldie is still helping me parent the other kids.

We are all trying super hard to keep her our baby but she isn't having it. 

She is however a fabulous teacher and can often be found on a lap helping in anyway she can. 😊

So like I said nothing to exciting to report. Still teaching babies, raising babies, 

and trying my darnedest to keep Archer from cussing in public. 😉
