Mani Monday (Tuesday? Whoops): Christmas Edition

I'm a day late for Mani Monday because I was hanging out at my parents' place with Hilde and the Plooper (and my parents too!), but I do want to share my Christmas manicure with you guys before the year ends (like, holy crap, where did the rest of December go exactly?). Like last christmas,… Continue reading Mani Monday (Tuesday? Whoops): Christmas Edition

Star Wars Mani Monday

So, we went to see Star Wars Saturday. I won’t be posting a review or anything here, because a) I can't really talk specifically because of possible spoilers, and b) I’m not really cut out for the movie critic thing - I either like movies and want to watch them again and again and again,… Continue reading Star Wars Mani Monday

Mani Monday: Butter London Aston

Just a super quick Mani Monday here today with Butter London's Aston. This polish is one of my tried and true favorites, and one of my favorite "professional but still fun" colors ever. I'm lucky that in teaching college I don't really have to conform to any office standards regarding wild nail color, but occasionally… Continue reading Mani Monday: Butter London Aston

Mani Monday: Color Club You’re So Vain

Today I have for you a Color Club polish I picked up out of a bin at The Christmas Shoppes called You're So Vain. I was initially suuuuppppeeerrrr disappointed in this polish, mainly because I did not know at the time I used it that it was part of the Seven Deadly Sins collection, which… Continue reading Mani Monday: Color Club You’re So Vain

Mani Monday: Funky Fingers Elsa

This Mani Monday we have Funky Fingers Elsa. I picked this up in 5 Below on a whim, mainly because (as Jim and the apartmentmate will tell you) I have a little bit of a Frozen obsession, and any age appropriate way to display that, I'm all over it. Elsa is a white and powder… Continue reading Mani Monday: Funky Fingers Elsa

Mani Monday: Butter London Bluecoat and Leccy

Today we have two polishes that I got for Christmas, which I abolutely fell in love with, but which were downright IMPOSSIBLE to photograph: Butter London Bluecoat and Leccy. Bluecoat is a deep, rich blue with a great sheen to it, while Leccy is an opalescent shard topcoat. The combination of the two polishes is… Continue reading Mani Monday: Butter London Bluecoat and Leccy

New Year’s Mani Monday

Just a quickie for our first Mani Monday of 2015. Apologies for the slightly blurry photo - I had to use my phone for this one since I forgot my big camera over the holidays (although it shows off the sparkle quite nicely!). My manicure for the Christmas holidays was a simple one, with polishes… Continue reading New Year’s Mani Monday

Mani Monday: China Glaze Bat My Eyes (2013 Halloween Collection)

On this Mani Monday (which is turning out to be a MANIC monday in every other way possible, but that's another story all together), I'm currently wearing China Glaze "Bat My Eyes" from the 2013 Halloween Collection. I'm a little late on the uptake on this one - I didn't actually buy this one when… Continue reading Mani Monday: China Glaze Bat My Eyes (2013 Halloween Collection)

Mani Monday: Zoya India

Just popping in with a super quick Mani Monday, featuring my super short and stubby nails (cello gig season again!) and Zoya's India. I picked this polish up in Ulta yesterday - it's part of their new fall Ignite collection, and it's seriously like one of the most perfect fall colors ever. It's a deep… Continue reading Mani Monday: Zoya India

Mani Monday: Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe

So last week I helped my mom take our big galoot of a labrador, Rusalka, to the vet for her annual check-up. She's a lab, and she's highly excitable and STRONG. It always helps to have an extra body on hand for these things, particularly if the vet ends up with an emergency and we… Continue reading Mani Monday: Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe
