Cocknails: Dark & Stormy and Galaxy Nails

0 Posted by - August 7, 2013 - Food & Drink, Hair & Beauty, Videos

My special guest this week is my friend Amy! Not only is she great at manicures, but she also made friends with my insane dog who hates people in general. We drank and had lots of fun and I hope you enjoy it. We’re trying out dark & stormies and also galaxy nails. (If you can’t see the video, click here!)

    I need that shirt for next year: “Fuck nebulas, it’s Shark Week!”

    Balls, balls, balls! You make me laugh, oh Pintester!

    I currently have galaxy nails! AND rum, vernor’s ginger ale, and limes. Yeah!! Cause it has been the opposite of stormy here recently.

      Love them!

    That was hysterical. I love that it just dissolves into balls, belching, bird calls. The hallmarks of fantastic videos.

    Can Amy be in every one of these videos?! You 2 together are hilarious. Your videos are already funny but I think Amy brings out something in you. It’s great.

    That “burp” noises were not necessary.

      not necessary, but funny

    I am totally jealous of your abilities to burp. I cannot burp. I have never been able to burp, even as a baby. At some point of the video, I thought, “now they’re just showing off,” but still, I watched in total admiration! 🙂 This is one nail art thing I might even be willing to try! I think I could even do this. By the way – I tried the “scarf as a vest” thing for a pool cover up the other day, and it worked – I think I figured out where you made your mis-step. I would have done it for the Pintester Movement 2, but I don’t have a blog. I may have to make one for the next movement, lol! Drink on, ladies!

    You guuuys! Thanks for classin’ up my dark ‘n stormy recipe with belching! Like Sandi, I’m totally envious of your belchin’ capabilities. I wish I were kidding.

      Thanks for visiting! Glad you liked our video– and our belching. 😉

    Not that i dont adore you but I really like it when you have guests on your videos, especially the four legged variety.

      You’re in luck. More guests to come!

    Lol I totally watched this while I had Shark Week on. Balls balls balls! You always make my day better 🙂

    I don’t know who that crazy chick is that said the burp noises are necessary was…but she is wrong. I want to order the t-shirt that says “Fuck nebulas, it’s Shark Week.” And I just love Amy. However, I have one minor question, why didn’t you do each others nails? That way neither one of you would have had to use your “off” hand.

    I think this is my second favorite video (the one last week with your husband was my favorite)! I agree with those who want the “Fuck nebulas, it’s Shark Week” t-shirts. Maybe you could have one made up and that could be your extra-special giveaway! Or else a guest spot in an upcoming Cocknails videos. 🙂

    OMG – Love Amy!! Hilarious! My attempt at galaxy nails was a fail…..but the Dark & Stormy was a success. “Fuck nebulas – it’s SHARK WEEK!”

  • Katherine Zurawel Herrick August 11, 2013 - 5:16 pm Reply

    🙂 Fun

    Seriously yum on the drink recipe this week! May be my new go to cocktail. However, it is not particularly dark, nor stormy. Any idea on where the name came from?

    […] I must admit here to having a problem… a hair problem. Please reference last week’s video in which I look like a damn poodle. I decided my hair was too dry and yucky and therefore I should try Wen because my favorite beauty […]

    I gave myself a nebulae manicure yesterday to celebrate the fact that I’m seeing the Rifftrax live show for Starship Troopers tonight. Yes, my life is that boring that I have to give myself special manicures just to go to the movie theatre. [Recently, I’d a minion for Despicable Me 2, and badges and uniform shirt colors for Star Trek Into Darkness.]

        My minion [I don’t have nail art tools, I just used a straight pin]:
