skull nails

[So yesterday this]

[Turned in to this]

I haven't done any nail art since I was in school last year. The other day was peeking around on tumblr, when I saw a very cute manicure show up on my dashboard with all of the nails in the style of the skull.  I thought "Hey, I can do that!".  I have to be honest, it's a simple design but the original is still so much better.  Maybe not as many teeth lines were used.  Nevertheless it's cute and makes me all the more ready for Fall and everything it has to offer!

What did I use?

Sinful Colors in "Amethyst"
Sally Hansen Xtreme Color in "White on"
Milani Design striper in "Black sketch"
Larger dotting tool that I found in a pack of 4 at Michael's Crafts.

Cosette and I

[My 8 year old chihuahua, Cosette and I]

[Being silly in the back yard]

Outfit Breakdown:
Zoya polish in Ivanka
Forever21 skeleton key dress
assorted jewelery
NYX Matte lipstick in Bloody Mary
MAC Carbon eyes

The weather today has made me even more ready for fall.  Even though it was still in the low to mid 80's, there was no humidity which made it so much more bearable!  

And I don't think that I have introduced my chihuahua, Cosette officially.  She has a huge part of my heart.  She's my best friend on 4 legs, and my fur child.  She's been through a lot with us, and been all over the United States either by car or plane.  It's really hard to believe that she turned 8 years old in  May, but she hardly shows it.  I honestly don't know what I would do without her.  I was once told that chihuahuas are healers, and I can honestly attest to that.

good morning

[dia de los muertos dog from masks y mas in ABQ, NM]

Just a smile to say hello and good morning and thank you :) 

There has been so much that has gone on this summer, and I have managed to photograph just about all of it.    From the amazing vacation that week took, to the several shows we saw of good friends bands play, to the music video that was shot in our home, random drinking adventures and outings, the Olympics, more home improvements, and family visiting.  I have felt bad for not updating because I feel like the next post should be about the Vegas leg of my vacation, but it's so much and a little overwhelming.  It will come in time, and it will be beautiful. In the meantime, I will not let it hinder me from sharing other things before.

You can slowly start to see the end of summer which makes me so happy!
