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!

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!

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

Fox Trot

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

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!

Midnight Celebration

Today’s mani is called Midnight Celebration, it’s one of my all time favorites that I already wrote about in a post last year called As pretty as I imagined.

one of my all time faves: Midnight Celebration

This blog is really about Jamberry Nail Wraps and about how easy to do and fun to wear they are, BUT I just have to show off me new necklace storage place:

I got a 24×30 canvas (the premium kind, because I needed it to be extra deep) at Michael’s, and modpodges a poster I already had on it. Then the hubs got a couple of door hinges at Lowe’s and mounted the picture to the wall for me.  How do you like my peachy bathroom?

 

Using up Scraps

Happy March Dear Readers!

In just a few hours the SPRING CATALOG will be out! And may I say, it is very nice. I love everything about it!

I just redid my nails, using up the four big wraps on half of a sheet of Midnight Celebration, one of my favorite wraps.
And I did an accent nail of Silver Floral, also from a piece of scraps of course. Just trying to be thrifty.

Love is in the Air

Here’s my latest mani, it’s called Love Spell.

It’s going to last way past Valentine’s Day, AND stand up to all the housework I’m doing between now and then!

Nails that hold up to housework!

The day before Valentine’s Day my husband and I are going to get to go to a gala, it’s a fundraiser for Casa El Buen Samaritano.

I made my first ever Jamberry Silent Auction Basket:

Hi Friends!

Well, the Hill girls finally got their Christmas Jamberry on!

It’s Poinsettia, and I only had half of a sheet. And here’s a picture of how far it went!

Stretching it!

That’t an adult manicure, 10 year old mani and pedi, PLUS a baby pedicure from the scraps!

Goodbye Teal Sparkle / Hello Holiday Season!!

Here’s my latest mani using up one of my favorites, Teal Sparkle. Unfortunately it has been discontinued.

The new Jaded is a pretty close match I think.

Goodbye Teal Sparkle!

Teal Sparkle has been replaced by Jaded

I’m holding some Christmas Decorations, which we have put up this weekend.

Speaking of Christmas: My friend Kelli, who blogs here, is hosting a Christmas Shopping Party in her home this coming Saturday.  There’s also going to be a Mary Kay Consultant and a Premier Designs Jewelry Consultant. All the consultants are donating party of their proceeds to charity. I’m giving half of my commission from that party to Heart of Hope, which is a Cambodian NGO that seeks to educate children to keep them from being at risk of being trafficked.

Come and do some Christmas shopping if you’re in the Houston area! E-mail Kelli to find out about the time and location, or click here to do some shopping online. Don’t forget to pick “Kelli’s Christmas Shopping Party” at checkout!
