Weekly Read and Polish

I figure every Monday I'll share what I'm currently reading, along with the current polish selection.

I don't know about you guys, but I generally paint my nails while I sit and read, so I figured the two can be shared together.

Weekly Read:

Anna Dressed in Blood

... so far, I'm feeling so-so about it. I love the ghost story, but the main character is coming across as kind of a dick... and I'm on page 159 -_- That's about 50% of the way through the book.

I'm hoping he softens up a little. There's something about his speech pattern that annoys me, and I still can't decide if he actually feels like a male character to me, or if he feels like a girl trying to be a guy. It's weird.

Alright, I need to go on the record right now:
If there is something supernatural living in their friggin attic, this book sucks.
When they first did a search of the house, it really annoyed me that they didn't check it. That's like not checking the basement. WTF... but if there's actually something up there, and they're ignoring the cat acting weird... when THAT'S WHAT HE'S THERE FOR... yeah, this book sucks.  (seriously, it doesn't even make sense that they *didn't* check the attic, considering what they do for a living)

Nail Polish selection for the week is a bit of a Halloween theme, as far as color goes.

Base Coat: Sinful Colors Cloud 9 (why cloud 9 is orange, you got me) I applied 3 layers of this color
Next: china glaze Lighthouse (one layer)
Top Coat: OPI Top Coat Glitter Bit of Music (one layer)

I *just* discovered Sinful Colors for $1.99 at RiteAide, and can I say, it's AWESOME!!! I wore two coats of this orange for a week and it never once chipped! My $8 bottles of OPI and china glaze can't even boast that most of the time!

The end result looked like this:
(pardon the dark spot on my one finger by the nail... it's ink -_- No matter how hard I tried, there was no washing it off)

Also, I love how Anna Dressed In Blood's text... is the color of blood!!


  1. I do this too! I also have a Tuesday post I do called Books n' Nails where I show off my weekly polish with a current read. Glad to know I'm not alone!

    1. I'm going to have to check this out!!! Yeah... I was sitting painting my nails as I read and thought about the fact that I would love to know more about other polish brands... so I figured I'd just start sharing... people may not care, but alas XD

  2. I loved Anna Dressed In Blood but can see your point, he is kind of a dickish-bitch! :P

    Love the nail color!

    1. Well, and I'm only halfway through... so by the end of it, who knows!

      I mean, so far, I find all the ghost bits to be very creepy... and really, that's mostly what I was looking for.

  3. I struggled with Anna Dressed in Blood myself. I love ghost stories, but, like you said, the MC is a jerk. I never finished the book :(

    Love your nail polish picks. I'm not wearing nail polish right now, but I want to wear You Don't Know Jacques next.

    1. I had to add a note to my post above... LOL.

      Seriously... if there is something ghost-like living in their attic, I'm going to be pissed off.
      It doesn't even make sense that they didn't check that room as well, with the cat. -_-
