rhinestone overload

Good morning!
I have a nail art post for you this morning :)

I saw someone do this design on Bundle Monster's facebook ages ago and I have no idea who it was, so she gets credit, whoever she is! Haha.

Isn't it cute?!
I used a design from the first BM plate set, BM06, and put a rhinestone over every dot in the design.
9 rhinestones per nail. I was wearing 36 rhinestones! :P

The base color is China Glaze - Recycle and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Silver Sweep.

I really liked this design and I wore it for like a week! And I lost no rhinestones, thanks to Seche Vite.

Last night I saw one of my old favorite bands, Nofx, in concert. I don't really listen to them anymore but 16-year-old me would have been mad if I didn't go.
And it was super awkward, in a way. They got screeched in (Newfoundland tradition for non-Newfoundlanders where you take a shot of our rum and kiss a cod fish to become an "honorary Newfoundlander") and you could tell they were totally annoyed at how long it took, and made mean comments about the guy doing it.
They played their music well but between songs was kinda painful. They made fun of the opening acts and made fun of people in the crowd.
Which is to be expected, it's Nofx, but it was a little more intense than people were expecting I think. They kept counting down how much time they had left to play as if they couldn't wait to be finished.
And apparently some people were so unhappy with their behavior that they egged the lead singer, Fat Mike, after the show, and then he said he was never coming back.
Good time :P


  1. Really cute! Love the multicolored rhine-stones. (:

  2. ehhh i hate when bands act 'too cool' really lessens their appeal...

  3. lol wow that concert story is crazy ever heard of, thats unfortunate but hope you had fun!

  4. I'm pretty sure I've never heard of a band acting THAT badly. I hate it when they do that. It instantly turns me off to them. Yuck. Good thing I never liked NOFX to begin with :)

    LOVE this design! The stone overload is what makes it awesome

  5. When I saw them in Halifax they were awesome, really nice! That's really annoying, I would have been pissed.

    I had a look like this in my "to post" section foreeeeever I did it back in like March. I think I'll post it soon.

  6. This is so cute, the rhinestones look so pretty!

  7. 16 year old me thought Me First and the Gimme Gimmes was cooler...:P

  8. First of all I would need more than one shot of rum to kiss a cod that's for sure!

    I love the mani! I remember seeing it on Bundle Monster page as well and liked it then too. If I didn't get my shipment of 10 bottles of glitter YES I said 10 bottles of glitter from Kleancolor I might be stealing that mani idea lol! Instead I got this cool soft pink glitter, hexs and stars called Aurora I'm trying. Yes that is the little girl in me lol!

  9. ElHefe and Limo really liked it here and were supper nice and awesome to people backstage. Fat Mike was rotted he could get enough drugs that he wanted and Eric Melvin was kind of a dick....and drummer Eric was pretty damn quiet.

    The guy that egged him was wearing an orange wristband meaning that he was eitehr playing or working the show....

  10. Very pretty. Love the polish.

  11. I have nominated you for the top 10 awards! :) your blog is awesome and i love reading you. Cute mani btw. :)
