My surgery went well! I wound up staying in the hospital for four nights instead of just one, but that meant that by the time I got home I was mostly just tired and sore. I came back to work this past Friday and my life is pretty much back to normal. Normal isn't even the right word. Now that the fatigue from the recovery is fading, I'm feeling better than I have in maybe a year or more.
What better way to return to blogging than with my first post-surgery purchase? I'd been lemming CrowsToes Even Sugar Melts In The Devil's Mouth for a long time, but it was an A Box, Indied exclusive and always got snapped up from destashes before I could catch it. Suddenly there it was in a Storenvy listing on my first full day back home. Yay! I'm a complete failure at low-buys. There was no way I was passing this up.
Even Sugar Melts In The Devil's Mouth has silvery-white flakes and fuchsia and copper microflakes in a deep, plummy jelly base.
Because I wasn't really back in the swing of things yet when I did this mani, I don't know for sure how many coats this is. I wanna say three. The jelly base really lets the depth build, and this was crazydeep, so three seems right. CrowsToes tends to have fairly thick formulas and this was no exception. Still very workable.
I'm so thrilled to finally own this one. It's even more beautiful than I'd hoped. I wore it for days and kept admiring it.

My photos don't really do it justice. If you love vampy shades as much as I do and you ever get a chance at this one, get it! It's like nothing else I have.
It's so good to be back, not just to blogging, but back to LIFE! I'll be writing a more in-depth fibroid post in July for Uterine Fibroid Awareness Month. For now I just want to move on and get back to the things I love. Such a relief to be past all of that!
