Fall Leaves NOTD

October has been gone nary a week…we’re done with Halloween-ails. We’ve got a few weeks before the holidays start! I have really wanted to do a falling leaves manicure, and I finally did it. My friend at work told me that she thinks this is the perfect Thanksgiving mani, and even thought I didn’t intend it to be, …

A Mani for Brain Cancer Awareness

Today’s manicure may be considered a bit” out of season” – Brain Cancer Awareness Month is in May, I believe. But when someone you love and care about is suffering, or has fought a disease like this, it is never really “out of season” to celebrate life and try to bring attention to the cause. This morning …

MAC Venomous Villains nail polish

I’m sooooo behind on getting these swatches posted! I even posted Tartan Tale on Monday, before these! But I couldn’t not post them, I think they’re three of the prettiest MAC polishes I own.

Frosty: Frosty is a nice white, well, frost! This is two coats, it probably needs three for opacity. I like thinking of the holidays …

Happy Election Day…

Well, the polls are closed here in NJ and it’s almost time for Election Day results! I celebrated Election Day with…what else? Nail art! I used OPI Color So Hot It Berns on all but my ring finger, on which I used OPI Ski Teal We Drop. Both polishes are from the Fall/Winter collection. I …

Tis the Season to be Naughty and Nice: Part I

Hello all! Halloween is over. Now we’ll be focusing on Thanksgiving. Next thing you know, I’ll be frantically running around trying to figure out what to get my mom for Christmas and trying to remember who’s house we’re due to visit on Christmas Eve and how many stops we have to make on Christmas Day. Ah, …

MAC Tartan Tale polishes

Although I’m part Scottish, and enjoy makeup and nail polish that relates to anything about me, friends and family, or my interests, I wasn’t as excited over the Tartan Tale collection, which released on line and in stores last week, as I was about Venomous Villains or In the Groove. But I still scored the polishes, …

We’re up to nothing much, although my family gathers at my Aunt’s in the evening for bowls of warm chili. I’ve never participated in this holiday tradition but …
