All I Want for Christmas...

Hi!

Happy December, my favourite month of the year :)   I love the snow (which we don't really get in Halifax.. but I still love it), the Christmas decor, the parties.  Plus I get to fly home and see my family :)

The second theme for Nail Polish Canada's challenge was gifts.  I kept things simple, since that's how we like to keep our Christmas'.  



So what could I possibly want?  Just family time.  I hardly get to see my family - I haven't seen my siblings or my niece since Christmas of last year, and this summer I got to spend an entire 4 days with my parents and my nephew.  I can't wait to see everyone again!


And, in the new year, my fiance is deploying for ~7 months, so I'm just trying to spend as much quality time with him as possible and so here's the awkward claw pose with an anchor in honour of him and the navy.  Cheesy, right? :P

Don't forget to vote for your favourite mani over here!

  1. Nothing cheesy about that; it is sweet. I really like the red polish. What shade is that?

  6. This is so cute! I absolutely love it! And I'm sorry about your fiance deploying! My husband has deployed three times in his six year career, and will be leaving this June/July for his fourth! I know how it feels!

    1. Yikes! This is the first deployment we have to go through since being together (the Canadian Navy doesn't deploy very often). I know it's going to suck but at the same time who am I to complain, really? It could be a lot worse!

    2. It doesn't matter, a deployment is a deployment and it can be difficult! It helps to stay busy, have a hobby (obviously nails!) and stay positive. Soon it just becomes routine and you can send him and others fun care packages!
