NOTD: Happy Valentine’s Day!

This was intended to be my pre-Valentine’s Day mani, but it’s stayed all the way until today, so I just might keep it…not sure yet. I really really like it :-) First time I’ve tried anything like this, and it came out really well. My nails look a lot nicer than they did the last time I posted pictures. Keeping them painted full time makes them a lot stronger.

So what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Me? I’ll be celebrating turning 29 (yes, it’s my birthday) as well as V-Day with my wonderful husband! We’re going out for a nice dinner at The Lobster in Santa Monica tonight. I need to go get ready!

Look: Bobbi Brown Goes Green

You just can’t beat the silky smoothness of Bobbi Brown shadows. Buttery soft and so pigmented; they’re just amazing! The lipgellee on the other hand…it was brighter than it showed up in the pictures. I ended up returning it. It looks pretty with this look, but it didn’t wear well for me.

I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day!!

NOTD: Some Recent Polishings

As you may or may not know, I have recently become obsessed with nail polish. I have never had really nice nails. They’re very very bendy, weak, fragile, and they peel easily. I’ve never had to actually cut my nails since they’ve never grown long enough. But I have embraced my nubbins, and while they are far from the perfection that I see on some amazing nail blogs, they are at least polished :-) So I thought I’d share with you some of my Nails of the Day (NOTD) pictures. But beware – if you dive into the world of nail polish – there is no return!

Gorgeous huh? Well, this was after a couple of days, as you can tell with the tip wear. It’s a brown base with copper glitter. This was two coats and no top coat.  See a few more NOTD if you’d like!  Read the rest of this entry »
