supposedly i'm going to be an object of envy now

...Because my boyfriend is a United States Marine!


Don't mind me. Hahaha I was overwhelmed.


My family.


I just thought me in the background was hilarious :)


And here's the special nails!


Orly White Tip, OPI Big Apple Red, W&W Black Creme
I thought he was going to wear his dress blues, so I did them to match that.. but he didn't. :(

This manicure was taken from Wan. It took me forever and a fucking half to do them... but it was fun. :)


Thanks for looking! Have a GREAT day, I know I will! :)

  12. Congratulations on being a Marine girlfriend! :) I myself was one, as my husband was in the Marine Corps when we met. It is something for both of you to be so proud of! Even though my husband is no longer active, I still have a tremendous sense of pride. So glad you have him home with you!! Enjoy your time together!

  24. Aw! I'm so glad you were reunited with your boy! My hubby was gone for just five days and I was lost without him. You two are so cute!

    Your nails look insane! Seriously, my jaw was on the floor! If I were to paint my nails to match my husband's "uniform", I'd have a little suit and tie on each nail. LOL!!!!
