New Years Nails

Monday, December 27

Photobucket
I seem to be on a bit of a sparkle kick lately. As evidenced by my new found love for sparkly nail polish and that sequined shirt I wore yesterday. Yesterday, to church. *Gasp!*
Is that breaking the rules? Not only wearing sequins in the light of day, but wearing them to church?
Well, guess what.
NO. It's not. I just decided. Because they were black. Conservative Sequins, if you will.
And I only tried to shimmy in them once. Pretty good right? I tried to go in for a second shimmy, but Husband restrained me. He likes to save shimmying for alone time.

So I figure this sparkle kick has got to be the result of one of three things:
1. My New Years Eve birthday coming up {and to think. All these years, you thought those fireworks were for the new year or something} and the fact that I want to feel extra shiny when I turn 22.
{I decided 22 is going to be a significantly more shiny year than 21}
2. I'm a girl. And girls need to sparkle sometimes. So says Girl Law. Look it up.
3. This lady and I needed some serious sparkly nail bonding and chat time. Cause who doesn't bond over nail polish?
Random Side note: As the only two daughters in the family right now, FIL Dave calls us his Babies. When we rode down the water slide together on Friday, he was there at the stairs waiting for us. He said, "Good Job Babies" and helped us out of the pool.
Dave is precious. As seen by the very first picture here

i've been dying for some super-sparkly nail polish--yours looks amazing!
what a wonderful birthday, too! i always suspected all those fireworks couldn't just be for that measly new year thing... :)

December 27, 2010 10:35 AM

The sparkles are lovely! I just did my nails in nude glitter for work today. Just a little something to brighten up the mundane.

Oh, and I always thought 21 was going to be an exciting, life-changing year for me. But it wasn't too great, actually. I have a really great vibe about turning 22 this year. It just feels like it's going to be so right and wonderful.

Happy birthday, you dear stranger. I hope that you have a wonderful, wonderful day and a wonderful, wonderful year. :)

December 27, 2010 10:37 AM

I am soooo feeling you on the sparkly nails! Just last week mine were red with gold sparkles for Christmas and I loved it!!

LOVE that nail polish, I feel like I still have some in a draw someplace from the 7th grade! 22 is a great year (but hint, hint: 24 is best! lol or at least that's what I'm thinking right now hehe). Happy Early Birthday!

December 27, 2010 3:35 PM

you are just turning 22?! i do NOT feel older than you! (i always think married people are AT LEAST 3-5 years older). ps - i love the "babies" thing...my lithuanian friend calls my friend and i "babies"...."see ya, babies!"....it's too funny!

December 27, 2010 4:01 PM

I love the sparkly nails! I've been looking for some glittery nail polish for ages and I can't seem to find any :( There must be a shortage in England :(

But I agree, girls do need to sparkle sometimes, I haven't been sparkly for a while so I need to sort that out, haha :)

One of the reasons i love reading your blog is that you and Tys reminds me of me and Corey back in the day. I was 21 when I married him...over 10 years ago !
Hope you have the best birthday :)

December 28, 2010 7:32 AM

bahaha. I thought you said he called you both his BARBIES! which would be hilariuos and appropriate too... but babies is fine :)

I'm going to go out on a limb and sparkle up my nails..I usually go for more of a matte nail color, but I'll let you have your way and try it :)

December 28, 2010 10:55 AM

LOVING that nail polish combo! Seriously, what is better the crazy sparkles for the holidays? Not much :)
Just wanted to say that I love coming over here and reading a new post pretty much every day- and you also have so much variety! Love it :)

I think there is nothing wrong with wearing sequins in the day or to church. You even made it look very conservative.

December 28, 2010 9:00 PM

My dear Sydney, please keep up the sequin and sparkle wearing. I have my own sequined shirt and sparkly nail polish and I would hate to be all alone.

December 28, 2010 9:15 PM

i NEED glitter nail polish!

December 30, 2010 4:52 PM

I LOOOVE sparkles!!
I actually knew those fireworks were for something bigger than just new years eve =P
Btw, are you not allowed to wear sequins to church?
