Nothing to disclose.
If you follow me on Instagram (@MonicawithRA) you may have seen my recent break down. I felt low, defeated and overwhelmed. I needed to vent to move on from those emotions. Afterwards, I felt more empowered, productive and ready for the brighter side of things.
August is always a funny month for me. Year after year, I remark on my “August Blues”. This is the one month I am sad, unmotivated and physically unwell. And, I don’t know why. The month starts with my mother’s death day anniversary. Do I just start out the month in a bad mood? Does it dictate the following weeks? Who knows.
I spent the first ten days really messed up. I had absolutely no will to do anything and I slept through each day. I focused only on the negative thoughts. I started and ended my days in a funk. Then, I woke up and decided I needed to get my ass into gear and start working.
I decided to do a short series on the blog documenting my blue thoughts with a corresponding nail art/swatch. Is it going to be weekly? Is it going to be every few days? I cannot say but what I do know is I will write out my feelings and let them go. Feeling some type of way? Let me know in the comments!

In August, the sun sets much earlier than in June or July. It is a very concrete indicator that the summer is ending. Early sunsets remind me I didn’t take advantage of the summer while it was here which in turn upsets me because these are the only two or three months out the year my RA does not flare from the weather.
Soon, it’s going to get cold, dark and dreary and I will spend a good portion of the year actively trying to keep my symptoms in check.
Now, on to the fun bit!
Scroll through to see swatch photos of Parrot Polish’s brilliant Baboon Blue. It’s a great electric neon color that is dark and bright all at the same time. Photos below show 3 coats over a white base.
Find Blue Baboon (part of the Welcome to the Jungle collection) here.
