Dilemmas cured by Octa-gone Wild

 I'm over Winter.

It's windy and rainy, it's cold and I'm sick. I think I'm losing my voice, but I haven't tried speaking yet today. It feels a lot like I've lost my voice, but I'd rather not try speaking and confirm it. The weather has been crazy lately. One minute it looks like there may be blue sky, the next it's hailing.

There's one week left of term. The kids are ratty and sick of being inside, the teachers are all tired and sick and I'm constantly struggling with trying to work out if I'm sick enough to take time off. Well it's not an 'am I sick enough', more that I want to prevent myself getting sicker. My wedding is in 2 weeks. But everyone's just as cranky and tired as me, and I'm not getting any sympathy.

Taking sick days is always a dilemma for me. I was always taught to do what you had to do. So I feel guilty. At what point does it come down to the fact that my wedding is far more important than the last week of school?

Ahhhh! I just want school to end and to be on a plane flying to sunshine in Rarotonga.

 Anyway I'm planning to swatch all my unswatched polishes today and just watch tv. So look out for swatches of my Cult Nails polishes, Kleancolor Chunky Holos, Nyx Girls polishes, Serena Williams French, OPI DS Glamour, Essie summer polishes and to be honest I can't remember what else in the box waiting for me to try! Exciting :)

I will leave you with some pictures of a gorgeous polish...China Glaze Octa-gone Wild. Stunning purple holo from the Kaleidoscope collection.

Octa-gone Wild
Such a beautiful colour...I'll stare at my nails rather than worrying about work and being sick.


  1. omg hun, that sounds awful, i hope you start feeling better and things get better(:

    that holo is gorg btw

    <3 BB

  2. A good polish and a Disney movie (and maybe some chocolate) can cure anything. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. awwwww I hope you get better!!! Yay wedding soon! - just keep thinking of that and you will get through. Only 5 days of term left. I want octa gone wild so bad! I have about half of this collection but gave up on the rest because they were too hard and expensive to find.

  4. so pretty! i hope the polish can cheer you up :)

    and take a sick day!! who cares!! :)

  5. Thanks so much everyone!

    I watched some Teen Mom and played with my polish by the window until it started raining heavily and went rather dark outside.

    I just might take a sick day next week to refocus myself. Only 5 days left to go...

  6. Oh....and Lisa you don't want to know much I paid for Octa-gone wild. It came from Poland and I had to sign for it. I have all the Kaleidoscopes now except Visit Me in Prism, but I only have half the OMGs. I've given up on expensive lol.

  7. Gorgeous color! And hope you feel much better now! :)

  8. I hear ya - I'm over winter too :( Yay for a super excellent polish to pull you out of the winter blues

  9. hope you feel better soon, gorgeous polish too x
