Hey There Polished People!
Earlier this month when I posted the swatch and review of Julep Julia I posted the picture on Instagram and Twitter. Bundle Monster follows me and they saw my picture and commented on how pretty the color was. I agreed and said it was begging for a stamp and the person who runs Bundle Monster suggested the swirly stamp on BM 314 and when I reminded myself of what stamp that was, I had to agree! Ready to see what it looks like?

When I showed my mom these nails she thought they were EXTRA pretty! Guess what her nails are going to look like next time I do them? You got it!! I really like doing her nails because it’s just fun to do someone else’s nails for a change and then all the ladies at her work will be really impressed and think my mom is extra super cool, which she totally is. The problem is that especially around the holidays when it would have been extra fun to do her nails, she’s so busy always cooking, cleaning, etc that they would hardly last a day. I think maybe this or next weekend I’ll insist on doing her nails. I always go over there on the weekends so I’ll have time to do them. I can’t believe it but there was a time in my teens when I was embarrassed to go shopping with my mom. I love my parents, why would I be embarrassed about going out and about with them?? I guess that’s a typical teen thing, but when I think about it I’m so ashamed of myself! My mom is definitely my best friend and although it’s like kinda awkward to say that to her, I think she knows. I talk to her at least twice a day, run over to her house all the time for all kinds of possible reasons (my mom and dad only live like 7 minutes away), and just always like hanging out with her. Same goes for my dad, but he hates being mentioned and especially photographed and posted online so I’ll just leave it at that.
I used to think everyone’s parents were like mine- very nice but strict and held us to high expectations, always were there for us no matter what, never said one bad thing to us in our whole lives (not even when we were ornery little turds refusing to get along for even the shortest period of time), gave us every single thing we could possibly need and 99.9% of everything we ever wanted, and they still do to this day. When I got a little older and started really getting a glimpse into other people’s family life I was shocked that all parents weren’t like mine. I always appreciated my parents, but once I realized they were SUPER DUPER special, not just regular special I was EXTRA thankful.
Do you ever do your mom’s nails? Anyone else’s? I talk like I do my mom’s all the time- I’ve done them exactly ONCE, haha- but I do like to do other people’s nails. I actually did my sister-in-law’s nails for her and my brother’s wedding. How do you like these particular stamped nails? Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
