Incoco Nail Polish Appliques in Call Of The Wild

Hey guys! You may remember my Incoco Nail Applique review from awhile back. I've had these nail strips for awhile, and I decided to use them today! I've been quite lazy with my nails lately (GASP!), so this was quick and easy! I really do love these nail strips, and Incoco does them well! I do like them better than Sally Hansen's, just because they're a little thinner, more flexible, and easier to work with.

So, check these out... Here are the Incoco Nail Polish Appliques in Call of the Wild!



Call of the Wild is a gorgeous zebra pattern composed of black and holographic silver glitter. So pretty! You can order some for yourself at www.incoco.com... Go check out their pretty patterns!

18 Weeks Pregnant!



How far along? 18 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: Bell Pepper!
Total weight gain: 0! Officially back at my pre-pregnancy weight, and I've lingered there for about 4 days.
Maternity clothes? Same as always... still need some black slacks!
Stretch marks? None yet!
Sleep: Better.
Best moment this week? Today after I ate lunch, Baby P went WILD! I kept getting little pokes in my side, some of the first legit "kicks" (probably punches), and it tickled like crazy! I kept laughing, and my patient that I was working on asked why I was laughing! hahah
Miss anything? Still wine... although I did sneak a few sips on my birthday! Don't call the Prego Police on me!
Movement: Lots of movement, and Baby P likes to stick SOMETHING out all on my right side, so my belly gets all lopsided for a little while. :D
Cravings? Sushi (which was satisfied today and it was AMAZING!) and Mexican food.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! Past the nausea! Woot!
Gender: Still no clue. :( 
Labor signs: Nada.
Symptoms: I get really achey if I'm up on my feet for too long... Other than that, I'm feeling pretty good! I did have a scary moment this weekend when I went on a long shopping trip... apparently I did way too much and ended up on  the couch with SEVERE cramps! All is ok though, and lesson learned!
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! :)
Looking forward to: Getting the rest of our nursery furniture this week! We set up the crib and dresser, and I'll be getting a glider and book shelf this weekend to finish it off. :)

Now let me just tell you how stubborn my child is. Last Thursday, the day after my birthday, I had an appointment to try to see what we're having... Kind of a "sneak peek". You may remember last time I had one, Baby P was snuggled up all comfy in the corner with it's feet crossed? Well guess what... Same thing!!! Moving all over the place, growing wonderfully, but totally unwilling to give up it's secret just yet! My doctor was so frustrated that we couldn't see that he told me to come back in a few hours to try again... and STILL nothing! I cried all the way to work because I was so disappointed. Don't get me wrong... Happy healthy baby makes me happy! But I just really had my hopes up. :( I also had something really cute planned to surprise my family with a gender reveal that night at dinner. Ahh!! So we have our "big" ultrasound on April 11th... Please keep your fingers crossed! This mama is going NUTS!


One more thing, just for fun: Here's my 10 week picture and my 18 week picture, side by side. :) WOAH!

St Patricks Day Mani!

Hey guys! I know this is a few days late... I swear I meant to post it on St Patty's Day! This is my cute and simple green mani. I wanted to do scotch tape tips, but I couldn't find any tape to save my life... So I free-handed them. Not as clean as I wanted, but what can you do!


For this mani, I used 2 coats of Finger Paints Chrysanthe-mum's The Word, and then added tips with Zoya Ivanka. I loved it and got lots of compliments! :)

Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed

Here is a beautiful polish by Cult Nails! This beauty was given to me as a gift by my buddy Kimmie! <3 Feast your eyes on Toxic Seaweed!





I really wish I had some sunlight to work with when I took these pictures, because this polish is beautiful! It's absolutely amazing, and I own nothing like it! A gorgeous aqua-green packed with glitter and tiny flakies! The flakies flash red, orange, and gold... It really gives a stunning effect paired with the beautiful background of glittery goodness! I just love this polish! 

If you love it, grab it while you can... It's LE, so it won't be around for long!

Maternity clothes? I got a new pair of jeans, and I'm on the hunt for some black slacks.
Stretch marks? None yet!
Sleep: Slept badly last night... most likely due to stress.
Best moment this week? My hubby and my best friend got to feel Baby P wiggle around! S/he is an active one. :)
Miss anything? Eating without being paralyzed afterward... I feel like if I eat more than a hand full of food, I'm miserable like I am on Thanksgiving!
Movement: Lots, and more than flutters. More of a "rolling" sensation sometimes... It varies with what I eat.
Cravings? Grilled cheese and tomato soup, and sushi.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing this week... Huzzah!
Gender: My gut is leaning more toward girl now... Dreams of a girl Baby P are frequent and vivid. 
Labor signs: Nada.
Symptoms: Feeling great over all, but my lower back has started to ache, especially in the middle and downward. Other than that, feeling pretty good!
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.

Looking forward to: My birthday on Wednesday, and fun things in the coming week!

16 Weeks Pregnant





How far along? 16 weeks
Baby is the size of an: Avocado!
Total weight gain: Still negative. No change from last week.
Maternity clothes? Still rocking the jeans and maternity slacks... Soon, I have to get new work clothes (we're changing colors), so they'll be maternity.
Stretch marks? None yet!
Sleep: It comes and goes. One night I sleep great, all the way through the night, and the next night I'm tossing and turning.
Best moment this week? Listening to the baby's heart beat with my doppler, and hearing it kick/punch the doppler every few seconds. I laughed so hard!
Miss anything? Not really this week... I've had a good week!
Movement: Getting much more frequent now, and I've been feeling a knot that likes to poke out on my left side! When I poke it back, it moves away. Hah!
Cravings? Not much!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I've been ok this week... my nausea seems to be completely random!
Gender: No idea, and I've stopped guessing. I have decided that I really have no idea!
Labor signs: Nada.
Symptoms: New development: Hip pain! Ohh the hip pain! Mainly after I sit for a long time... I'll stand up, and my hips are really stiff and sore. 
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy this week!
Looking forward to: Still can't wait to find out the gender!

I still can't find my camera charger (which I'm REALLY frustrated about), and I managed to lose my husband's camera. :/ BUT, I found some batteries for one of my old cameras, and I ordered a new cable for my Nikon, so it should be here soon. And I will guard it with MY LIFE! But, never the less, I do have pretties to show you guys... I got my Hunger Games polishes!! (As I typed that, a trailer for the movie came on! I've got my tickets, and I can't WAIT!!)
