Twinsie Tuesday Canadian's Choice

Hi all! Story time ahead, skip to the pictures if you don't feel like reading this haha. I won't be offended. Anyway, I'm currently writing this post at 6 AM after being awake for about 3 & 1/2 hours now. I woke up at night not feeling well and I couldn't go back to sleep. Then about half an hour later, I smell what I thought was gas, REALLY strongly throughout the whole house and I start freaking out. The carbon monoxide monitor wasn't going off or anything, but I was still really worried, so I open the windows and ask my roommate if she smells it too [she didn't at first, so I thought I was crazy lol], then our other roommate comes in and says "Get dressed and leave right now, I think there's a gas leak". Perfect... So we all hightail it out of there just in case our house decides to blow up and wait for the gas man to come. When he gets here, he discovers that there's a back-up in the furnace and oil's been spilling everywhere because our landlord likes pretending he can fix everything [but really just ended up messing it up]. So. Now, we have no heat and it smells like oil. But the good news is that we're safe! Just pissed off haha.

Okay, on to the polish. This week's TT post is Canadian's Choice, which means that we split up into 2 "teams" and I'm on Team Anne! Anne assigned us a theme for this week: Woodlands. Anne says that Canada is known for beautiful woods and forests, especially in the area she lives in, so I decided to do a little tree mani! Rudimentary nail art ahead:

For this, I used Love & Beauty "Crystal/Light Aqua" as the base [these names couldn't be more boring], Orly Buried Alive for the tree trunk, and Cult Nails Deal with It, OPI Live and Let Die, and Love & Beauty Green [see what I mean?] for the leafy tree part. And this was done with my make shift dotting tool: a straightened out bobby pin!

I can't wait to see the other team's challenge and also how everyone on Team Anne interpreted this!
