Cocknails: Chocolatini and Chevron Manicure

3 Posted by - July 24, 2013 - Food & Drink, Hair & Beauty, Videos

My guest for today’s episode of Cocknails is my husband, Robbie. So now you can all stop asking if I am married and what my husband looks like. It’s ok with me, though, if you continually remind him how lucky he is to have nabbed a great catch like me. (If you can’t see the video, click here.)

Here’s the link to the original chevron nails tutorial.

And! AND! Guess what! Today is free shipping in my store! Get you a t-shirt and pay no shipping. Just use code XMASINJULY and a very merry Christmas in July to you!

    I have the same WEIRD thing about people filing or clipping around my drink. nail dust is not a good cocktail ingredient 😀

    picture of the not so finished product?

    • Pintester July 24, 2013 - 2:41 pm Reply

      Nope. Forgot to take one. But you’re not missing much, promise.

    That was fucking hilarious! You should invite your husband more often.

    You two are so freaking cute. Also where is your Hubby’s shirt from I need it for my hubby!

    • Pintester July 24, 2013 - 3:13 pm Reply

      It’s a Splunk t-shirt (has a company logo on the back)… So I guess you have to know someone at Splunk?

        I KNOW someone at Splunk!

          Erm, I’m in New Zealand 🙁

          • MooGz August 11, 2013 - 6:11 pm

            Me too, emjaygee. Head along to your local tshirt printing place and get one made…that’s what I did for my hubby when he wanted the “i’m too esxi for my shirt” shirt

    You guys are great 🙂 You remind me of me and my Husband, we’re ridiculously goofy.

    This video was hilarious! Robbie is the best – you two are perfect for each other! I loved his “file” and his “knife” — such a man thing to do. Robbie needs to be in all your videos.

    Loved Robbie in the video with you.

    oh my gawd! You should really find something where he can use that knife 🙂
    I confess, I watched the slow motion-dog barking-booze spilling part over and over again.

  • Ken Dempsey July 24, 2013 - 5:04 pm Reply

    I have to say that was awesome. You two are so alike… Okay, now you will have to have him make more special appearances now.

    I love it when nerds fall in love. You guys made me giggle a lot. Reminds me of me and my nerdy hubs. Love it.

    Chevron is over rated, but your husband is an awesome drink shaker!

  • Cara July 24, 2013 - 5:23 pm Reply

    Sorry about the nails, but the drink sounds DELICIOUS. The only thing that can make a glass of chocolate milk better is if it’s made almost entirely of alcohol and has none of those pesky nutritional benefits!.

    Love me some amaretto and anything…

    Best video ever. 😀

  • Sandi Boyd July 24, 2013 - 6:15 pm Reply

    My daughter would say your hubs is totes adorbs! But since she is 10 and not allowed to watch your vids, I borrowed her verbiage, lol! I don’t know WHY she isn’t allowed to watch your vids…lord knows I use worse language than you do…Anyway, he was a great guest! And I thoroughly enjoyed the slow-motion replay of the dog-bark-drink-spillage (of course, except for the carnage of the loss of alcohol!). Great cocknails!

    He’s funny too–you guys make a great team!

    Please do more with your husband. You’re hilarious but together you guys are even better!

  • Katie C. July 24, 2013 - 9:42 pm Reply

    Love this! You two make a great team! 🙂 I laughed out loud several times. People stared, but that’s okay.

  • Amanda July 24, 2013 - 10:04 pm Reply

    He was cracking me up! Reminds me of how my husband acts when he’s bored.

    As for the nails, I did a different tape design with mine and the ends of the tape curled up within hours and got caught on everything. It was not worth my time, energy, or polish.

    Robbie’s big file kind of impressed me. Just saying.

    “So that’s like gas stations?” Exactly what my partner said when I called him from Hobby Lobby asking if chevron fabric would be good for our livingroom curtains. Men, amirite. They think they’re sooo funny.

  • Bitsy_29 July 27, 2013 - 11:29 am Reply

    I laughed so hard everyone in the library turned around and looked at me. Guess I’m supposed to work while I’m here?? LOL

  • Kaelyn Paige Allen July 27, 2013 - 3:17 pm Reply

    Wait! You didn’t show us what they looked like! How am I supposed to know if they’re really not good, or just kind of not good?

    your husband is funny and goofy. he makes a good guest star. you seem unamused by his antics though 😛

  • Craig Thom July 28, 2013 - 6:47 am Reply

    Your husband seems very nice, and I still think he’s a lucky guy, but I hope you don’t want children, because I’m pretty sure his testicles shriveled away when he drank that girlie beverage.

    You guys are cute together ^.^

  • ChickieD July 31, 2013 - 10:50 am Reply

    So cute! I personally do not like these incredibly sweet drinks but for a girly night it would do. I prefer to just get straight up hammered when I drink. I like your husband in the video – super fun.

    Okay, I have to tell you that the first night I discovered you I totally alienated my kids by spending the night (movie night at home) on the computer, I read every single existing post and I now check back every day to see if you have something to brighten my day! Tonight is my first night watching the videos as we have just gotten new computer speakers, and you are even more hilarious on camera! I must say that you are also VERY pretty and I am insanely jealous of your confidence. 😀 Keep on with what you’re doing, it’s a huge success!


    • Pintester August 17, 2013 - 10:48 pm Reply

      Well you are just the sweetest! Thanks for your lovely comment. I’m glad I come across as confident, because mostly I have to get drunk to forget I am in front of a camera and everyone is going to be LOOKING AT THIS GAH NO I MUST HIIIIIIDE.

  • Rebecca Amos August 28, 2013 - 4:33 pm Reply

    So my dog just went ape-shit when your dog barked. But on the brightside of that, it got his lazy ass off my couch 🙂 Also, I’m pretty sure your husband is a distant relative of my brother-in-law…exactly the same.
