Chanel Malice - A Return.


So I've been a little MIA...

My life has been in a bit of a turmoil lately and I've been trying to cope with it the best that I can. And by "best that I can" I totally mean "go completely insane and do crazy things". 2012 has been nuts. This year I found out my tumour was back (on my birthday), had surgery, learned to walk again, broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years, chopped off my hair and dyed it dark, met a new guy a few days later and took him to London with me, and I'm *thisclose* to quitting grad school. Yeah. It's been an interesting time. 

BUT. All the while, my nails have been faithfully polished. My choices for the most part have just been predictable and things I've already shown you. Since the weather changed about here I've been sporting a lot of dark reds - Essie's Wicked and Skirting the Issue have both had some serious workouts - and this day is no exception. I waffled on buying Chanel Malice, but eventually succumbed to the delicious velvetyness of it. Ugh and how good is it?!


So good.

I think I might start sharing my manicures with all of you even if I've shown the colour before. A lot of my old pictures are pretty crap, so they do deserve to be re-done. Plus, I think it's nice to see what people are *actually* wearing, rather than just a barrage of new things, n'est pas? 

I hope all of you are well!

This is soooo beautiful! And wow, you have been through a lot. Good luck with everything - and everything seems to always turn out in the end:)

I'm so sorry you've had such a difficult year. Here's to it being almost over and a fresh start in January.

At the very least, your nails look divine.

Holy moly....you HAVE had a difficult year, which from what you described, 'difficult' seems to be quite the understatement. Good to see you posting!

I like to revisit old favorites, myself, and it's good to see them with a new eye now and then. Sorry to hear that you've had such a rough year — I hope things are better for you here on out!

Goodness, that does sound like a pretty difficult year! It's great that you're back to blogging because among all the other reasons, it means that you're coping well enough with all the other stuff that you can go back to it. Your nails look amazing!!

Sorry to hear you've a had rough year, but at least this year is almost over! I love love this polish! I wore it for Thanksgiving and it's my first ever Chanel polish.

Oh my gosh! I didn't know any of that was going on. I didn't even know you had ever had cancer. I'm so sorry that this year has been crap for you! I hope your health situation is okay, the new guy is treating you well (if you're still together), and regarding grad school... Whether you decide to stay or leave, make the right decision for YOU. Take care! :) (Also I like the idea of showing what you're wearing, that's what I do on my tiny little blog!)

Hang in there kittytokaren--it's always the darkest before the dawn. You've come too far to turn back now!
