My hiatus and nail mail.

Good early morning, my darling readers!  I am so sorry I left you all in limbo the last couple of weeks.  I've been having some issues with my tummy here lately and I finally broke down and agreed with my doctor it was time to see a specialist about it.  The specialist didn't want to make any guesses as to what might be wrong so he ordered a tummy scope and because my family has a strong history of colon cancer,  the test for that.  I was supposed to have had the colonoscopy Thursday, but had a problem with the prep solution you're supposed to drink.  My tummy decided it was going to rebel against me and made it so I couldn't have the test done at that time.  Since I was scheduled to have the other procedure at noon today, the doc decided to do both procedures at the same time and offered a different prep method.  Luckily, I started testing early just because of our family history and they've been able to remove pre-cancerous polpys before they became bad, bad news.  Had I waited until age 50 (which I have another 3.5 yrs to go) it is hard to tell what may have been found and if it would have beeen treatable.  Colon cancer is usually very sucessfully treated, if caught early enough, so I highly encourage every one who is over 50 that hasn't had one done yet, please talk to your doctor about it during your next appointment. And if you are under that age, with a family history (one or both parents, like I do and more than one grandparent, also in my family history) it is even more important that you start before the age of 50.  The worst part of it is the prep and if you have a sense of humor, you'll make it through just fine.  Hopefully when I get home from my procedures, I will feel up to posting and have some good news to share.  :0)

Before my hiatus, I had posted that I had received more nail mail.  Is everyone ready to see it?  I'll not keep you in suspense any longer because you've all waited long enough!  Without further ado, nail mail:

I spy pretties in those little windows!

 Look at those babies!

Why yes, it is It's a Trap-eze! from
Cirque Du Soleil Worlds Away collection.

 And this one is Creative Fantasy.

 And finally, last, but not least, this one is
Get Carried Away.

 I also got a bottle of Liquid Leather.

And a bottle of Seche Vite top coat.

I ordered all of the above from 8ty8 Beauty Supply which can be found here.  The Cirque Du Soleil sells for $3.25 each and the Liquid Leather was $3.  Seche Vite is $4.25 and can be found under Treatments.

More after the jump.

My second nail mail was from the beautiful Maggy at Daily Lacquer.

Usually you can only purchase Moon Kitty as part 
of The Lovely Moon collection, but Maggy offered it
singly for a limited time and I snapped it up!

MoJo carefully inspecting Moon Kitty to be sure
it meets his approval.  She passed!

When I opened the package, everything was in the little pink and white bag, tied with the ribbon.  It was oh so cute!  She included a note along with a cute card that has Moon Kitty on the front and all her info on the back such as her website-The Daily Lacquerista, her Etsy shop-Daily Lacquer, and her e-mail.  My big surprise was another bottle of polish!  That is the one on the far left in the first photo above.  She's a beauty, isn't she?  Her name is Maple Syrup and is part of Maggy's Christmas line.

Do you have any of the polishes I've mentioned in today's post and if so, which ones and do you like them enough that you'd buy another bottle?

As always, thank you for spending a few minutes of your time with me.  I wish you a wonderful Monday.  Huggles!


  1. Moon Kitty is so pretty! glad to hear you're ok (of sorts) I don't know how big Billy Conolly is in US, he's a Scottish comedian. He does a sketch on having a colonoscopy. I showed it my dad before he went for one and he laughed but when he had the pre treatment sachets he said it was exactly right. 24 hours stuck in the bathroom!

    1. I hope to be able to swatch those three sometime this week. I did wear Moon Kitty and was amazed by the wear time I got, 7 days before I noticed any tip wear at all! I had it on for about 12 days total and just loved it. I only took it off because of this procedure. :)

      Thank you for that name. I'll definitely look him up. At the moment, I feel like a civil war is going on in my tummy (the prep stuff and I just so don't get along) and I'm just praying they'll be able to get both procedures done today. I have just over 3 hours until I have to get ready to leave and go check-in. At the moment, I'm looking forward to lunch as I'm starved! lol

  2. Hi Angela, sorry to hear you are struggling with the prep for the tests. I think people don't understand how miserable that is!
    Thank you for the update, I will be anxious to hear how you are doing!

    Great nail mail!


I love hearing from y'all and will respond (eventually, lol) to all comments left here.
