Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Hi guys!



In the spirit of the season,  I wanted to do one more Christmas mani.  This time it's the old Tannenbaum.  A few dots and rhinestones goes a long way.   I regret the absence of a tree in my home this year.   Never got around to it, and quite frankly,  my kids don't care.  A tree or not a tree - not a question.  The answer is a shrug.  So Christmas time in my home can be a bit lackluster. But that's okay, because it's in our hearts and that's what counts.



For the base color behind my trees,  I used a not-yet-released polish by LBD.  On my ring finger I did a gradient using two LBD colors,  Enticing Emerald,  and Shimmering Silver White.

Sorry about the lousy photos.  It was the best I could do without my camera.



Have a very merry Christmas
Ciao Bellas!

Red And White Snowflake Christmas Manicure


Hi friends!


I'm getting in the Christmas spirit this year.  We're decorating the house this weekend and after years of refusing to help out with decorations at work,  I rolled my sleeve up and pitched in.  What's gotten into me?  I don't know,  maybe the Grinch kindly gave Christmas back.  Now I just need to give to Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army Santa and I will have officially become Mrs Clause incarnate.  Just one last thing... Christmas shopping!  Lucky for me, I have Amazon Prime. I don't do the whole crowd scene.  The hard part is figuring out what to get my kids.  You would think that would be easy,  but my middle schooler can't think of anything but a League of Legend gift card. Then he wanted a $300 computer program before changing his mind and deciding he just wants a big birthday party this year and that would be his gift.  But he's getting a party anyway so I'm back to square one.

My teen is more decisive,  at least.  He wants one of those remote control flying things that cost enough to rent a private jet.  But I'm not complaining because at least I have a starting point to go on.  Of course since he's a teen he also wants cash, that's easy.  So, what do I do?

While I ponder over that,  let's talk about this manicure.  Snowflakes over a shimmery red jelly polish and a white glitter crelly accented ring finger.  This one bring Christmas home.  The polishes come in a set and can be found here.


Ciao bellas!

Frozen...No Really, I Feel Frozen!




Hi Ladies,
I don't know about the weather in your part of the world,  but here,  it's cold.  I'm not fond of cold weather, but it's that time of year where I dread my day ahead the moment I open my front door.  I think I must be allergic to cold weather and I should be able to work from home every day that doesn't reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit, (or 21 degrees Celsius).  I may take that up with my supervisor.  I won't lose by asking.

I figured maybe I could trick my mind into accepting the cold, so I did a wintry manicure.   It sort of reminds me of the movie Frozen.  I like Elsa ,  maybe I can handle the cold if I just let it go.

Ciao for now !
