Fish Scales and "Woe is me" Tales

I'm STILL upset about the stupid neighbor thing from yesterday. Especially since we had to spend $90 and 4 hours building a mini fence in front of the actual fence between our yards. I acknowledge that my dog is bad to chew on the wooden fence boards when her dogs are barking at him, but I try and prevent it and don't let him out when her dogs are out. But she doesn't do anything when her dogs are running and bouncing off the fence on the other side. I have to be the responsible one and throw money away to keep my dogs from misbehaving while hers are free to do whatever they want. UGH! You know what? I don't think she let her dogs out ONE TIME today. Talk about an extreme reaction. They still need to go to the bathroom. Does she seriously think I don't ever want them to go out? I wanted to thank everyone who commented yesterday on my rant-y post. You all made me feel so much better. I just want so bad to believe that everyone has at least some shred of rationality to them, and it bothers me that some people will never have that, no matter who talks to them or what they say. So sorry I've been a bit of a Debbie Downer lately. I'll return you to your regularly scheduled pretties shortly.
As a way of easing back into it, here is the fish scales part of the title.  According to my boyfriend this mani looked like fish scales.

This is 2 coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise under 1 coat of Hard Candy Break Up.

My camera is dumb. It makes non-neons looke neon and actual neon look pastel. Turned Up Turquoise is a saturated neon green-based teal shimmer. Break is large opalescent hex glitter in a clear base. They glitter is hard to get even, but I like the way it looks so I keep using it.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. This would make a great mermaid mani!

    I worked in retail for 4 years. There are many crazy assholes in the world. It's really sad, but it's true. It's no wonder there's so much conflict and unhappiness in the world. I never understood it before, but now I know.

  2. I LOVE this! I need that glitter! Did you get it recently?

  3. Have dogs is a privilege but so many people get dogs and then don't train them or discipline them which is very sad. She says she doesn't want to be "mean" to them because they have had a hard life??? I have two dogs, they are both rescues, one was a breeder from a puppy mill and the other is a puppy who was a stray... they have had hard lives but I still make sure they know what is acceptable and what isn't. Some people should not be allowed to have animals. I totally understand where you are coming from. I hope everything gets better for you.

    If you have a few moments I’d love it if you would check out my new blog :) Thanks

  4. Ooooh, that is SO pretty.

    Dumb dog lady is dumb.

  5. OMG this nail look is AWESOME. SRSLY how do I keep missing that Hard Candy polish?? That's so cool!

    Sorry to hear that your neighbors are immature. It can be frustrating "being the adult" all the time, especially when you are the younger in the situation.

  6. Wow, really pretty! I've been obsessed with glitter/effect polishes lately. :)

  7. oooohh that's gorgeous! I never heard of that glitter!

  8. Awesome nails! I have a neighbour who is a real b*tch, too. What a pain in the ass, can't we all just get along?


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
