Towel Day nail art

*Nothing to Disclose*

Happy Memorial Day (or Monday to those of you outside of the US)! In addition to Memorial Day, it is also Geek Pride Day and Towel Day! What is Towel Day, you might ask? Towel Day is an annual tribute celebration of Douglas Adams, the author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I couldn't let the day pass without some nail art for the occasion.

Glam Polish: Spellbound

*Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! Happy Friday! I'm looking so forward to the weekend! We are heading down to Charleston tomorrow, I haven't had a day off (well, other than weekends) since February, so I could definitely use a little break

Today I've got a polish from the Cast A Spell Part 3: The White Witch Collection from Glam Polish. I am in love with this entire collection; it's so sparkly and perfect for Spring!

Digital Nails: Timey Wimey

*Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I had to take Mr. Bloo back to the vet. He lost another pound, and his weight has dropped to just 6 pounds. His vet is completely perplexed as his kidney seem to be working fine, and his thyroid tests came back normal. Since he had his front teeth pulled, his weight has just been dropping. I'm hoping that it's just because he had to switch from dry food to wet food, and he cannot graze throughout the day like he has done his whole life. The vet suggested that I sit out a buffet of different foods to see what worked. He nibbled throughout the day on his wet food when it was fresh, a little dry food, and dry food soaked in water. (He wouldn't touch the bowl of chicken broth or dry food in chicken broth).  So I'm going to keep the things that he liked out, and hopefully that will get his weight to stabilize. Otherwise, they are going to give him an appetite stimulant and do chest x-rays.

Enough about my sick kitty saga... Today I have an awesome glitter topper from Digital Nails - Timey Wimey. It is based on one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes (Blink).

Gradient using Cupcake Polish and Digital Nails

*Prize/Purchased by Me*

Hi guys! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day weekend! The highlight of my weekend was getting to see my 10-month old niece!  My sister and her family live in Ohio, and with us living down in South Carolina, we don't get to see them as much as we'd like. We were able to go up when my niece was about a month old, but we've been watching her grow through videos and video chats. It was so great to get to see how much she's grown! She has such a big personality for such a little girl! And my kitty, Mr. Bloo, did so well with her. He's an older cat (13 years), and has never been around children. We figured that one squeal from her, and he'd been hiding for the rest of their visit. The squeals didn't really bother him, and he even let her tug his tail and pet his nose. It was only when she'd run after him that he'd go hide, but always came back out after a few minutes to try again! 

Enough about my awesome weekend, and on to POLISH! The other week I showed you some lovely polishes from Cupcake Polish and Digital Nails (original posts here and here). As I was writing up the posts, I thought that they would make a pretty gradient so I tried it!
