February Nail Swatches!

As promised, this nail swatch day will be all about thermal polishes! I adore thermal polishes, and wish I had more. I also wish that I could get them locally, because I hate waiting for orders to come in.

The polishes in question are from Polish Me Silly, which is set up on California. They have some really awesome, unique colour combinations available, so, if you are going to make a purchase, be sure to look at all of them! In addition to thermal colours, they also have many other non-thermal polishes available.

So, I'll start with a general review of the polishes, and then go to the 3 individually. I got the thermal mini set, which is 3 thermal mini polishes for $18, which is an option they don't seem to have available anymore as a set, but they are available as mini's. They arrived in just over a week to Canada, which was okay. I actually expected them to arrive sooner, as I paid a fairly high shipping rate.

The polishes themselves are just beautiful. The polish goes on smooth, if a little light. The sparkles, which range from micro to macro, and include hexagon and square, as well as circle, are all quite lovely and work really well with their respective polish colour.
Here's the thing-the sparkles are MURDER to get off. I mean, wow. Also, thermal polishes are pretty much strictly for those whom keep long nails on a regular basis. The thermal change doesn't happen with short nails.
More after the jump

Snow Day!

Well, not actually a snow day. The school didn't actually shut down today (or this weekend) but we have a LOT of snow here on the mountain. It started Friday night, and is still currently snowing (as of 1800 Monday PST). I guess that we have a snowfall warning in effect here? I don't know. I don't think its that bad, really, but I think that has more to do with being from Ontario than with anything else.

I think its super pretty, but a lot more soggy than I'm used to. Its cold enough to snow, but not really cold enough for it not to melt a bit, you know? I just hope it doesn't last TOO long. I have a friend from Korea coming to visit, and she deserves to see more than just snow.

What I'm up to

I know it seems like I've been busy, what with the lack of updates and all, but that simply isn't true. Not really, anyways.

Here's a small video of what has been taking up my time

Here is a link to my current music playlist on Grooveshark. You shouldn't need an account to listen to the list, but you do need one to make your own (and I highly recommend it, they have LOTS of stuff on the site!)

So, I had a small trip to the hospital...

And I made a video about it! YAY!

And here  is a picture
I would add the video of me all doped up, but its on the husbands phone, and he isn't around for me to grab it. So, yea. Enjoy!

Trees and Nature

Well, trees and nature, and all that fun stuff. I think its important for people to spend at least some part of their day outside, you know? Fresh air, sunshine, and all that stuff is super good for the body and the mind. Taking walks is therapeutic, a good form of exercise, and just all around good health. I mean, when you think about it, this whole living in dwellings, and spending our days on computers is fairly recent, evolution wise. So, spending time outside is highly needed-especially for those of us who spend a good chunk of our day in front of books, or computers. So, do yourself a favour, and go for a walk. Find a beach, a park, anything, and just let yourself be.
I just happen to live on a mountain that has some really nice trails that are quite close. So, lucky me. The beach is nice too, but its rather far now from where I live. (and by far, I mean, like, 45 minutes by transit)

So, here are the pics from my most recent walk around my mountain!
