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!!


Fall Fever

Happy Fall y’all! It’s officially the first day of fall and I am so glad it’s here!

Without further ado, here’s a picture of my latest mani, Fall Fever, it looks good on short nails (please tell me it does!) which is lucky for me, because I plan to practice the bass a lot this fall.

Fall Fever - looks nice on short nails!

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.

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?


Garden Party

Hi Readers!

We moved this past week and my last manicure took a beating when I used Magic Erasers to clean over at our old house. They are truly magical and I had to take a couple of wraps off immediately. Since all my Jamberry stuff was all packed up, I ended up applying the next set of nail wraps using Barbara Gage’s stash. She was using them last spring already and introduced me to Jamberry by giving me my first sheet, Lotus. Thanks Mom!

Anywhooooo, so this is a discontinued wrap and I don’t even know it’s name! I’m holding some iced coffee and tried to get my new kitchen paint color in there as well.

Sunny Lotus

Happy Summer!

Today’s mani is Sunny Lotus, and as the story usually goes: I didn’t think I’d like the color, but I do! And it’s definitely very summer-y.

In the picture you can see why I’ve been keeping my nails so short recently: I’ve started playing the double bass. It’s a childhood dream coming true and I’m loving it.
