Christmas Polka Dot Nails!

Christmas Dots 2014

It’s driving me a little mad that I don’t have new posts this week for you so I am putting up this mani that I re-created yesterday.

TraceyLovesLacquer re-created this look on Instagram after being inspired by The Polishaholic and Manicurator. Then I saw it and totally fell in love and did my version of it.

I used Nicole by OPI Alex By The Books as the base and the dots are Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y, OPI Angel With a Leadfoot and OPI Sandy Hook Green.

Something about the mint green base with the Christmas-y colored dots just screams “retro holiday” to me, and I love it!

Anyway, stay tuned for Friday because I’ve got another fabulous giveaway coming atcha!

Checking In (Again) and TV Talk!

Happy Monday folks! I hope you had an excellent weekend.

Just another post to let you know things will be slow on the blog front still. While my hand is feeling a little better, it still hurts enough that I can’t comfortably swatch any nail polish at the moment, and that’s basically all I have “waiting in the wings” to blog about right now. Of course if I get something super exciting in, I just might have a rush of adrenaline and blog about it. :)

So for now I’m icing my hand constantly, and watching season 2 of American Horror Story. I originally watched only half of it when it was on then lost interest for some reason. Well I just got to the episode that I gave up on and it got WAY better! So I’m halfway through that now. I’m still kinda sorta watching Gilmore Girls, but I’m still on season 1. It’s ok and all but it’s pretty “vanilla”, and I don’t like it so much that I feel I have to keep watching episode after episode.

In other TV news I am bummed that Selfie got canceled, but it’s kind of not surprising. All the best shows that most people don’t “get” seem to get canceled while the Two and a Half Men shows go on and on and on and on…

I don’t know if I am emotionally prepared for the last episode of SOA tomorrow. ACK. I have a feeling it’s going to be very Hamlet-esque, which makes me sad. Do you think Jax is going to live or die?

Anyway that’s all for now, catch you soon!


MAC Kinky Boots Swatches

MAC Kinky Boots

MAC Kinky Boots is a limited edition collection out right now until January.

In case you didn’t know (and I didn’t until recently), Kinky Boots is a Tony award winning play. I first heard about it while watching TV because it’s currently playing in San Francisco. Then I saw MAC was coming out with a couple items to pay homage to it. Something else I learned about the show – Cyndi Lauper does the music and lyrics. Love her!
