NOTD, my prize from Nailstah, and something personal

Before I get to the good stuff, I want to talk about something personal, bear with me please.

April 28th is a tough day for me.  My father passed away in 1996, and I still have a hard time on this day and his birthday.  I realize that it has been a long time, but my father was one of my best friends, and I get upset when I think about all that he missed in my life- my marriage, the birth of my children, both of my sisters graduated from HS and college after he died.  Oddly enough, on April 28th, 1997 (one year later) I found out I was pregnant with my son.  Needless to say, this is a bittersweet day.

Thank you for letting me get that out.

I won Nailstah's giveaway a few weeks ago, and my package came yesterday!

There were 2 of the Choco pies, but I ate those pretty quickly.  Also not shown is a Hello Kitty head with stickers (the Princess took that over) a Hello Kitty cell phone charm which went on my keychain, and some lipstick.

Here are the polishes:

ChG Channelesque, Fuschia, and Emerald Sparkle

CND Infatuation, Rimmel Milk Chocolate, and Cheri Tiky Punch

For today's NOTD, I chose Channelesque.  This applied very easily, and I used 3 coats.  I haven't decided what I think of it on yet....

It is actually a bit less grey in real life, but it is very pretty!

I also scored about 10 or so polishes off Freecycle, I should be getting those tomorrow.  I have no idea what they are, so it should be interesting!!

Until Later,
