Two Manis. today....Apples and Cats!

Good morning! How was your weekend? Mine was really good, but I was so exhausted by yesterday afternoon, I could have gone to bed for the night! We went to a late football game Sat. night and didn't get home until 1am I didn't get to sleep until 3am and was up at 7! We got up yesterday, and went to a fall festival at a Cidermill. We had some yummy cider donuts and apple cider. I had an apple cider slush. Sooo good! :-) After that we went to a winery, did some wine tasting, and then enjoyed a bottle of apple wine,cheese and pumpkin fudge. By that time, I was ready for some sleep! I came home and had a nap, but it was not long enough. Needless to say, I slept well last night! LOL!

I actually did two manis. yesterday. I wanted to post them last night, but just couldn't stay awake. The first one I did, was an apple mani. to go alone with our activities of the day. :-) I used a Love & Beauty polish, from Forever 21. The name of it is just called Green. It is so much more than just green though. It's an apple green color with lots of gold shimmer. It's super pretty. Application was great. The formula is a little on the thin side, so I used three coats. I then added apple fimo's to each nail.

Food/Drink Pics! Here's the awesome Apple Wine we had....

Apple Cider Slush and Apple Cider Donuts...

Now on to the second mani. that I did yesterday. As much as I loved the apple mani. I did, by the time we got home, a couple of the apples were falling off. I decided to do a cat mani. since yesterday was National Feral Cat Day. The color for NFCD is teal. I used a newer brand of polish that can be found at Ulta. It's called Pixel. The bottles are small...0.17 Fl.oz/5ml but they do have quite a few pretty colors. The one I wore yesterday is called Aqua-Escence It is a dark teal color with golden shimmer. Now application was not the best. I think because the bottle/brush is so small, I had to dip the brush in twice to cover my nail. Plus, buy this time, I was super tired. Who knows, it could have just been me. ;-) I used two thick coats, and added a Halloween cat nail sticker to my ring fingers.

Speaking of cats, here's a cute pic. I snapped of one of my cats, Morris yesterday. We had pizza last night, and he decided he wanted to sit on top of the boxes! Notice my beagle, Buster in the corner staring up at the pizza. LOL!

Thanks for reading! I hope you all had a good weekend, and are having a good Mon. :-)


  1. I love the first green mani the best! Am still laughing at your dog looking at Morris on the pizza boxes!! How funny is that!!!

  2. First of all, pumpkin fudge?!? Ah that sounds so good!

    Funny, I just did a post on some Forever 21 polishes, I love them! And I want to go back for that green cause it looks like Zoya's Apple (well at least that's what I thought when I saw it, I don't actually own Apple).

    I have one Pixel polish, and that is all I will ever have, I found it to be such a PITA to apply with the tiny little brush.

    And that last picture made me LOL!! So cute!

  3. That green Love & Beauty polish reminds of Zoya Ivanka.

    Morris is so super adorable :)

  4. Now I am starving!! Morris is so adorable!!! This post has just made my day. :-)

  5. Oh man, those apple cider donuts look SO DELICIOUS. Did they taste similar to apple fritter donuts? I love the green apple mani too. That L&B polish looks a lot like Zoya Apple to me. I wonder if they're dupes?

  6. Love the apple ones! I just picked up some apple cider donuts from the local farm and they are delish! And your kitty is cute ontop of pizza boxes :)

  7. That green polish is stunning!

  8. OMG that green apple mani is AMAZING! That polish is awesome and I love the cute apple slices! And the wine, the doughnuts, and the cider slushie, YUM!!!

    LOVE the feral kitty mani too. I live in a very urban area of a city and there are so many feral kitties. We put food out for them every day so they can at least eat. They are too scared to come close to us but it's obvious that they are grateful for the food. It breaks my heart. Our fur baby was found on the streets and he could have ended up like these poor kitties. He was a little tiny kitten all alone, barely 12 weeks old when he was found and rescued. He now lives the spoiled life, lol, and is 5 years old. <3

  9. Fingers....Thanks!!! Ha, Ha, I know! I LOVE that pic. :-) Funny thing is, I didn't even know my dog was in the pic. until I looked at it on my computer!

    Angie...Yes, pumpkin fudge!!! It was so yummy! I pretty much love anything pumpkin. :-)

    I'm going to have to check out your blog on the L&B polishes. I love them too! They have so many great colors, and several dupes to more expensive brands. I do believe the green I used here, is a dupe to Zoya Apple. I don't have it either, but from what I've seen they are pretty close.

    I'm not sure if I will use Pixel again either. They do have some great colors, but I hate that the brush is so small. :-/

    Biba...Thank you! :-) I think it's pretty close to both Zoya Ivanka and Zoya Apple.

    Erythropolish...Aw, well thank you so much! :-)

    S.N....The donuts are SOOO good! I need more of them! ;-) They are different than apple fritters. These are made from actual cider and they also have cinnamon in them. I do think that the L&B and Zoya Apple are pretty near dupes. ;-) By the way, are you a My Little Pony collector?

    Peace,Love and Polish...Thank you so much! :-) Aren't Cider donuts the best?!!?

    imfeelingnail-venturous...Thank you! :-)

    I Drink Nail Polish....Thank you so much! Aw, I love your kitty story. Good for you for taking him in and loving him. :-) They all deserve that. Unfortunately, they don't all trust people. :-( I think it's awesome that you feed the the feral cats where you live. I used to do that as well, but now I live somewhere, and don't see many. Thank goodness. It breaks my heart too. It's so sad. I think every single animal deserves a healthy,happy and loving home.

  10. i just got 2 polishes from love and beauty from forever 21 too! They're ok.

    Your animals are sooooooooo cute! Esp the cat on the pizza box@

  11. I know this is an old post, but I like your blog :))) and I really like both of these manis! I had no idea there was such a thing as national feral cat day and the teal reminds me of aqua lily but with gold shimmer instead of pink! Love your kitty pic, too <3
