(More) tape nails!

Hey, Buddy here (I feel like I need to say that each time because you probably just assume it’s Rover.) I know I haven’t done too many nail posts – oh wait, I haven’t done any. Sorry about that!

So anyway, I was contemplating whether or not to post this nail design. I took this picture yesterday, and it’s pretty bad quality but I wanted to post it anyway… I don’t really know why. I got this idea from somewhere and thought it would be cool to try, but of course in the end it turned out not that great.

Well, here it is:

I used Deborah Lippmann Sparks Fly (thanks for that one, Rover!) and a regular pink I got for probably $1. I love this idea, but the colors don’t go quite so well as I had imagined.

Turns out you have to wait a loooong time before you put on the tape or it gets all messed up. I’m way too impatient for this design, so I probably won’t be trying this any time soon.

Well, that’s about it!

Hello from Canada!

Hey everyone! Guess who’s in British Columbia, Canada? (I told you I would post once I was here, didn’t I?) Anyway, we’re staying in a hotel in Victoria. Although I’m being completely unproductive, I’m having a great time with my family. But that’s what vacations are for. Too bad we’re only staying for 4 days… Ok, I’ll stop rambling and let you see the pictures.

That’s it for now! Sorry they’re all small and random sizes… I tried to fix that but I’m not good with those kinds of things. I’ll do better next time 🙂

Travels

Hey guys, it’s Buddy! Long time no post, right? Heh heh… I know, I’m a disgrace. We should just call this Rover’s blog. Anyway, I kinda sorta have an excuse for my betrayal. I am in Walla Walla!

My dad’s side of the family lives here in Washington state, and we see them almost every summer. This year we only have 5 days to spend in Walla Walla before we go on some cruise to Canada (which sounds amazing, but I wanted to get to spend more time here.) Anyway, we have about 8 days away from home, which gives me a good excuse to not practice so much of my Fountain of the Acqua Paola.

Yes, I play the piano. Rover and I are currently working on a flute / piano duet. Or, I should say, Rover is working on it. (Sorry! I’ll get to it! Probably.) Well, I’m currently working on this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD0-bCXZVj0

It gets really weird, but I guess I like it. Okay, I’m getting off topic. As I was saying, I love it here in Walla Walla, but we visited at a bad time. I mean, I went to take a walk around a lake yesterday and it was NOT what I’d expected. My aunt told me she went there last spring and it was beautiful, but for me, the whole thing was pretty much like this:

Yes, I took those pictures. Well, I should get back to practicing piano right now but I’ll try to post more later. You’ll hear from me when I’m in Canada, I promise. Maybe.

Ah, Boredom

There are some days when you’re so bored that not even nail art nor gardening can entertain … Or origami, which I’ve discovered is another one of Rover’s hobbies. Anyway, it’s a typical hot summer day and I don’t really have anything to do. Well, there are things I should do, but you get the idea.

So I was sitting around watching my (many, many) houseplants grow and admiring my new manicure (thanks Rover!), when I remembered how a certain someone had been bugging me to post more on our blog (out of all these posts, only 2 have been from me. Sorry!)

I have no idea what else to write, so I hope the rest of your day is packed with fun and little room for boredom… ugh… and if it isn’t, here are some random pictures that can keep you entertained for the next few seconds!

This has nothing to do with anything. I just thought it was a cool picture.

Our Growing Collection

Our nail polish collection (this is our combined collection) is small. But it’s growing!

Pretty, or Pretty Ugly?

When it comes to nail polish, I’m usually pretty boring. I use pinks, sometimes red… while Rover is going around with bright yellow, orange, or sparkly green nails. So today I decided to try something a little different.

I’ve seen colors like these look great on a lot of people! But with me, it didn’t really work out. I loved the color in the bottle, but once it was on my nails, I looked like a corpse. You could call it pretty in a way, but to me it just looks pretty ugly.

Here it is: On a Trip from Wet n Wild.

This picture doesn’t let you appreciate just how bad this color looked on me. It’s more of a dull, lighter purple in person. I didn’t want to remove it, though, after all that hard work. Now I’m rethinking that decision.

I still love colors like these, and I’ll probably try more of them in the future. But for now, I’m sticking to the pinks.
