I Won Another Contest + NOTD + Fishing Trip

This was going to be my post from Monday, May 15. But since we all know my comp died, it’s now today’s post. I had to repaint my nails with this awesome polish (I wasn’t hurt about that!).

I got my package in from More Nail Polish. I won her First Blogiversary holographic polish giveaway. Do any of you know how excited I was to win this?? I was even more excited when the package finally arrived from Australia. These are Artform polishes & they don’t ship outside of AUS. Apparently, they’re a private label distributor. So if you’re in Australia, I suggest run (don’t walk) and get these polishes. Dying of jealousy you lovely Aussies!

This is the red holo that I wore my fishing trip with the hubs. Why paint my nails for a fishing trip? Because I could. And I knew the sun would be out and shining like mad. Also, holo polish would be a nice distraction while waiting for those Kings or Redfish to bite.

Another gratuitous pic… because there’s never enough holo in the world:

Isn’t that freaking awesome??!

When we got to the Gulf State Park Pier in Gulf Shores, the sun was on it’s way down. I took this picture when we got there:

This is a pic I managed to sneak of the hubs setting up our spot (yes, he’s tall. 6′ 6″):

We stayed all night. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I was freezing my ass off. And writing fishing haiku in order to pass the time. I really should have taken a pic of us after dark–there are special “No-Turtle” lights that glow orange and they make everyone and everything show up in black and white. We all looked like zombie fishermen. Ever seen a holo polish in black and white? It’s weird.

But alas, soon the freezing was to be over! The sky began to lighten with the prettiest shades of pink and yellow:

And right about the time we were getting ready to leave, the hubs catches this:

Sharp Nose Shark

We couldn’t keep it though… they frown on that at Gulf State Park Pier.

All in all, I hurt in places that I haven’t hurt in years. I’m getting too old for all night fishing trips.
