BYS- Fern

Good Morning guys! Thanks for all the nice words in yesterday's comments. The funeral ended up not being as awful as I had thought...I only cried twice, once when my Aunt spoke and once when they played taps. I have to say, I hate that taps song, it makes me tear up even when nothing sad is happening. I guess maybe I should let those of you who don't know what's going on know...a few of you who I talk to on Twitter or through email already know. My Grandpa passed away last Tuesday. I was very close to him, my Grandparents have lived down the street from me my entire life so I've always spent a lot of time with them. He was a real character, one of those people that would make a friend where ever he would go. He was also a major prankster and  a joking kind of guy. He had 2 bluebirds tattooed on his chest and when I was little he used to tell me that I was adopted because my birds were missing lol. He is also responsible for my dislike of soy sauce, for YEARS I believed him when he told me that soy sauce was made by people in Mexico stepping on cockroaches...even though that is obviously not true I can't eat soy sauce now because that is always in the back of my mind. I will miss him so much! He was very loved, the turn out for his funeral was much more than any of us expected.It was nice to hear some of the funny stories about when he was a Police Officer, a few of them I hadn't heard before!

On to not sappy stuff, the mani I wore for yesterday was BYS- Fern. I wasn't sure what the heck color I should wear to a funeral, I didn't want to wear black. I said something on twitter about it and Sarah from Them Pretty Colors suggested a couple of different colors, one of them was green which I chose because of what it meant. I went through my stash and being indecisive as ever did my nails with three different polishes before I liked this one! You can see evidence of that in the second picture, my skin was stained a lovely color of yellow-green haha. BYS- Fern is a dark murky forest green with tons of shimmer bits mixed in, the formula and application was great. No complaints here!

This is 2 coats of BYS- Fern and 1 coat of China Glaze Fast Forward.




  1. I am wearing Fern currently (such a nice green) with Sinful All About You as a sparkle top coat. Someone wrote that All About you was fall leaf colors so I thought Fern green sprinkled with fall leaf colors would be nice for October and it turned out even better than I thought.

  2. Loved reading the stories about your grandfather. My condoleances for your loss.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa! I think it's nice you didn't want to wear black to the funeral, black is just so sad. I love this green color!

  4. You picked the perfect green!! It sounds like lots of people were affected by your grandfather - in a good way.

  5. Sorry for your grandpa :*

    The polish is very pretty :-) It will be perfect for the halloween zombie look:)

  6. I want that Fern! It's such an unusual green. Cool!

    Ah, hugs to you, hon. I know how hard it can be losing grandparents that have been a huge part of your life. Your grandpa sounds like a great guy.

  7. this is such a unique shade of green! sorry about your grandpa

  8. Your grandpa sounds really awesome...I laughed out loud about soy sauce being made from cockroaches in mexico. I think it was so believable because it was so specific, lol.
    I'm really sorry for your loss, and hope you're dealing with it okay.

    And you chose a great color to wear on your nails! It's gorgeous.

  9. I'm so sorry to read about your Grandfather. You were so lucky to have known and lived near your Grandparents. I never knew mine. They all died before I was born. It's wonderful that you were so close. Death is so hard to deal with. Keep close to your family. Remember how much you are loved. God bless your Grandfather. Love the polish also. Crazy how we worry about the silliest things when we're so upset.

  10. I'm very sorry about your grandfather. You were lucky to be close to him, but unfortunately that just makes the loss harder to deal with.

  11. So, so sorry to hear of your loss! I'm sure it was tough for you to write about here, especially with his passing being so recent. My heart goes out to you and your family. <3
