WHY did the snow come back? Seriously it was like 10+ degrees C outside and then on Wednesday we had a snow storm. It was like early February again! Awful. So because of the craptacular weather I decided to do something a little gloomy. Okay not too gloomy though because I know spring is coming back soon. I used China Glaze Recycle, topped it over with Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure (remember that one guys?) and covered it in China Glaze Matte Top Coat. I like the effect, its all very dull but has just a little bit of sparkle from the flakies in the Hidden Treasure.
Contest is now closed. A winner will be announced shortly. I'm not cleaning my house but I am cleaning out my stash ;) So out with the old and in with the new! The new being all of Kai's stuff - seriously that baby has *almost* as many clothes as I do. I can seriously clothe that boy now till he's 2!!!

So since I was too late on the St. Patty's train this year, and since my last mani chipped already :( (However on the upside I found some water decals that look JUST like the flowers I did so I may use those in another mani to kind of recreate the look with less effort :D ) I did another spring inspired mani!!
I used nail art pens in yellow, light green and dark green for the grass and a white and orange pen for the flowers. Then I used a water decal from Viva La Nails for the butterfly! I think they're perfectly spring-y!.
Have I ever mentioned my obsession with handbags? Usually I'm a Coach girl, I have *ahem* a lot of them, but I buy them at the outlet so its okay right? I mean a girl needs nice things! LOL. Thing is that my diaper bag is even Coach which is kinda crazy since I store used diapers in there!
Anyway, I was on Bluefly.com the other day checking out more handbags and they have some awesome handbags on their site. I was particularily looking at the ones for Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Here are the ones that stand out to me:
Green makes me think of spring all over - and St. Patty's day coming up!
There's just something about totes that I love
Check out more Marc Jacobs handbags and tell me which you like! They may be pricey, but a girl can dream right?
Did you miss me? Cause I missed all of you!! Its been hard to find time to polish nails since Kai arrived, but we pretty much have nap times down so between about 2 of them I can try to get something done :).
Its finally starting to feel like spring and its absolutely beautiful out so I couldn't help but do something a bit light and fun! For the green background I used China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint and the pink is Color Club Pardon my French. Then I used nail art pens in white, pink and dark green for the designs. The darker pink I used for shading in the flowers is Finger Paints Up & Coming Artist. Hope everyone is getting a taste of good weather!!!
I'm a whole lotta awesome built into an equally awesome package. And for this - you will listen to every word I have to say!! Me in a nutshell: My new baby, TV, comics, husband, nails, good times (not necessarily in that order)
Big HI to everyone who stumbles across this page, and a WHOOT to those who decide to stick around for all my random musings. Welcome!
My friend Amanda celebrated her 30th yesterday! So in honor of that milestone I thought I'd do something that reminds me of her - Union ...
