All the Pretty Colors

Wow. So yet again I must apologize for being so far behind. I keep waiting to make a “nice” post, but daily schedules don’t really allow for a lot of sit down time. So from here on out, no eating.

imageHe was a jolly happy soul! I found this idea on Pinterest and it comes  from weheartit.com, which you should really check out.

I did a grey base, then a layer of glitter, then white tips and “snowflakes”.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you had a nice, or at least a less stressful then usual Thanksgiving. Let’s face it, family gatherings are frought with tension and the most you can hope for is that no one blows a gasket. In public.

On the other hand, my fingers, on both hands, 🙂 looked very festive for the holiday.

 

 

For my fingers I saw this really great design from a fellow WordPress blogger, Coewless Nail Polish. And although I do not have red glitter (hint hint Santa) I do have a new red sparkle. I found a mini China Glaze on sale and it looks lovely. That and my very old chuncky gold glitter, it all came out smashingly. I seem to be in a very colorful adjective mood. Pardon the flourishes. Any way, I started with a white base, then added a thick tip of a gold sparkle, followed by a regular tip of the red sparkle, then several layers of the chucky gold glitter. It was awesome and it got rave reviews from random strangers which is always nice.

Snow Me White – Sinful Colors. Seashell – L.A. Colors. Ruby Pumps – China Glaze. The Gold Glitter I’ve had forever.

I also did my toes for autumn. There was this lovely combo of browns, grey and black. I did not have the colors in the picture, but mine were pretty close.

Orange and Grey

Orange and Grey

So I pinned a picture from Pinterest because the grey and orange nails really struck me; I thought the orange accent was very striking against the grey. Well, then I actually went to the website. They’re not grey, she just shot the picture in black & white and left one nail in color. Anyway, I did the grey and orange anyway, and it I really like how it turned out. Like I thought, very striking, and a nice fall combo. 🙂
