Essie Fall 2014 Striped Nail Art

First, thank you to everyone who commented, emailed, tweeted in response to the post about my baby Loki. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. I’m still reading through everything, it’s hard to do all at once, and responding but the support is amazing.

That being said, it’s #ManiMonday and when I shared the Essie Fall 2014 collection, I mentioned how I thought Take It Outside would make a great nail art base and that I wanted to pair it with Style Cartel and Fall In Line. So today, I pulled out the straight Nail Vinyls I purchased, but haven’t used yet, and The Perfect Cover Up for a fall striped look.

Remembering Loki

Loki-Window

On September 18th, 2014, my beautiful baby, Loki, lost her struggle with lung cancer, leaving a giant hole in my heart and life. It’s been an awful 11 months as we’ve dealt with treating inflammatory bowel disease, that left her at a frail six pounds, to discovering her lung tumor seven months ago.

It’s been a year where I have spent the majority of my days, at home, worried about her, on high alert for a wheezing fit, making sure she was eating and giving in to every time she wanted to lay on my lap, whether I had work to do or not.
