Hello! My apologies for the long hiatus. I really do want to come back to the blog, but there are a few contributing factors making it difficult. First of all, my nails have been pretty bad post-baby. I'm not sure if it's just hormones or if it's permanent, but I'm not liking it. Admittedly, I've been a bit neglectful of my cuticles, so it's possible that's playing into it, as well. Secondly, time has been a major issue. With a toddler, it's been difficult to find time to do a proper mani with adequate dry time, let alone take and edit photos and do write-ups. Lastly, our desktop bit the dust a while back. Like, for good this time. It had been randomly crashing, but now it won't power up at all. And since that's where I was doing all of my photo work, that obviously puts a kink in things for me as far as the blog is concerned. I really apologize if this sounds like a list of excuses, because that's not my intent. I just don't want to leave you guys hanging without an explanation. I do have a few polishes I'm really excited about (the newest Rainbow Honey mystery bag looks amazing, and I was recently able to snag a re-release of Black Lace and Elderberry - one of my DISOs! - from Pahlish), so I hope to have at least one of those up on my Instagram within the next few days. If you aren't already following me there, you can follow thatlacquergirl to see what I've got going on, nail-related and otherwise! I really, really do plan on getting the blog back up soon, so keep your eyes peeled! I just need to make some me-time and get the desktop situation sorted... Thanks for reading, and feel free to drop any post-partim nail tips you may have in the comments!

Hello, everybody! I know it's been a long time since I posted. I do have a bunch of stuff to try that I just haven't gotten around to yet, but my pregnancy and now having a newborn has put blogging on the back burner. Today, though, I have a bit of a sore throat because the weather has been shifting from hot and humid to cool and dry. We do have a humidifier, which helps quite a bit, but we don't always remember to run it. So, in light of my ailment (and the fact that I just finished a lat night feeding), I thought I would pass along one of my favorite things to soothe a sore throat. It's super simple, and you likely already have everything you need! I thought for a long time that everybody knew about this, but I've recently seen several people surprised at the suggestion, so I thought I'd share.

Hey, everybody! Long time no write, I know... On the up side, though, I do plan on coming back with new swatches very soon! I placed two orders yesterday, and I just put undies down for what should be a fun dotticure. I just wanted to let you all know that everything is fine with me, and now that the nausea of the first trimester has (mostly) subsided, I do plan on getting back into the swing of regular manis and posts. Thanks again for bearing with me!
