Now that Thanksgiving has official passed we can move passed pumpkin spice everything and get to peppermint! In preparation for this very moment, I purchased Peppermint Twist from Noodles Nail Polish a few weeks ago. I decided to pair it up with Everybody Say LOVE! from Indigo Bananas, a polish I got in the For the Love of Indies box. The Inspiration The Polish Dream Polish … Continue reading #ManiMonday: November 30
This evening, I will bet out at the Devils vs. Canadians game collecting coats to benefit the Jersey Cares Coat Drive. In honor of this game and a wonderful nail art video my colleague sent me on Facebook, I did my nails in a red to black gradient with a matte top coat. The red Revlon Colorstay Red Carpet and the black is Revlon Colorstay … Continue reading #NOTD: Let’s Go Devils!
This year, I am thankful for so many things. As always, I am thankful for my friends and family. I’m also incredibly thankful for my job – everyday I get to make a difference in the lives of New Jerseyans. But what I’m really thankful this year is literacy. Without the ability to read and write, I would not be able to be a part of … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
With limited time and having to cut my nails down to nubbins – I did a quick paint of Layla Nail Polish Ceramic Effect in CE12 for my Worksgiving tomorrow. I figured this would be the most appropriate time to rock a new brown and reign in the wild and crazy things I’ve been doing to my nails. In the bottle it looks like a … Continue reading #NOTD: Worksgiving

Furthermore, my friend Alyssa sent me a Snap from the frozen tundra we know as Chicago to show that it was snowing. I figured it … Continue reading #ManiMonday: November 23
The manicure I did for Monday started chipping pretty fast, with that and knowing I have about a million untried polishes, I took acetone to the rose gold and started fresh! For this #MidWeekMani, I wanted to use a beautiful light mint color I got from Nars called Thasos. I picked up this beauty when I wanted free shipping for a Sephora order; nail polish … Continue reading #MidWeekMani: November 19
I’m feeling pretty refreshed after my two week #ManiMonday hiatus. Like I mentioned in my last post, the goal is to keep it simple and use polishes that I haven’t used before. With all of the polish I’ve gotten in the past few months, there’s definitely a lot I have to get through (which I started on Saturday with Polished for Days!). One color I … Continue reading #ManiMonday: November 16
I love indie brands and nail polish way too much for my own good. My polish collection is pretty damn big and I have so many accessories, I don’t really know what to do with it all. Perhaps more importantly, I think my spending is a little out of control. I need to be a responsible adult and start putting a little more away for … Continue reading The New Plan
