Happy Valentine’s Day

I’ve used up scraps from last year’s Vaentine’s special last night.

Valentine’s Day Nails

It was hard not to cut into my new sheet of Hearts Aplenty, but I wanted to keep it to have at parties this week for my cash and carry stash.

In other news, my bestie Mandy just came back from 10 days in the bush in Africa, and here’s a picture of her nails after the trip. She did her nails 2 days before she left:

thrifty, non-toxic manis that last!

Are Jamberry Nails amazing, or are they amazing?!

Bird On Fire

Hi readers!

This mani is called Bird on Fire and I was skeptical at first, but now I quite like it! I’m holding a mango in the picture… I’m running out of ideas of what to be holding. I thought it went with the tropical bird feathers.

Stay warm, spring will be here before we know it!!

 

Blooming Splendor

Today’s mani is Blooming Splendor, or Splendor in Bloom, or something of that sort, but it has been discontinued. Using up scraps, it’s January and the budget is tight, right?

Spring is just around the corner...

Drinking more water this year!

If you like these types of geometric shapes, you may like Fractal, or Quilted. And if it’s the color-scheme you’re after you might check out Ombre Lotus.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2016!

In this picture I’m wearing the December Sisters’ Style:

"On holiday" - nice holiday nails!

Red and Green and Foxes for Christmas

Growing up in Switzerland I had never heard of particular colors being associated with Christmas. Our tree growing up had clear glass ornaments and cookies hanging on it. We also had real candles and the options there were white and yellow. The yellow ones smelled good, because they were made from beeswax. Anyway, the idea of red and green being Christmas colors has slowly grown on me and this year I’ve put Tinsel Poinsettia on my nails and as a result have been wearing more red clothes and gold jewelry than I normally do.

the Red-Green-Gold-Combo is growing on me!

Red and Green for Christmas

Also, for the first time ever I did my toddler’s fingernails, so far I had only done her toes.

cute toddler nails

Fox Trot

Cute huh? They are from the Jamberry Juniors line, called Fox Trot. The tiniest wraps fit her pinky perfectly.

Into The North for Black Friday

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!

My latest mani is Into The North, and it fits with heading North for Thanksgiving into the country, don’t you think?

so wintry and country at the same time, I love it!

A Break from the Typical Fall Colors

Hi Readers!

On Friday night I did my nails again and used up some scraps from an all time favorite that has been discontinued. It was called Teal Sparkle. I think the closest matches for it are Fountain of Youth and Jaded. I also used Fractal for an accent nail, it’s on the new sample cards. I LOVE IT and want to buy a whole sheet!

Teal Sparkle is discontinued, but Fountain of Youth and Jaded are good replacements

Fractal – a new design this fall

Don’t forget fall is a GREAT TIME to host a party, people are in shopping mode, so the hostess rewards are going to be many for those who make the time to host an in-home party this fall!

Faux Fox and Fox Trot

Gotta love the the Foxes, so CUTE!

Faux Fox and Fox Trot

Here’s a picture of my daughter’s hand and my hand wearing Fox Trot and Faux Fox respectively. And the sheets are in the picture too, so you can see how much is left!

And here’s a picture of my left hand after helping my friend Kelli, about whose farmhouse flip you can read here, paint the walls with KILZ. KILZ is a primer that will ruin any manicure other than Jamberry nail wraps, and so would most other construction projects:

Jamberry nail wraps can stand up to almost anything!

I got some KILZ on my manicure

not even KILZ destroys this manicure!

AND was able to clean it back off!

I actually went back and helped over there some more since then, and my mani is still alive and well!
