Holidays

Finally! My first post on this blog! I am April and I blog over at dot ... dot ... dot ... I am a stay at home mommy and since having my 2 boys, my natural nails just do not hold up. They have never been very strong to begin with, and with my crazy lifestyle always on the go, there is no time to try to take care of my nails. So, my generous mom-in-law treats me to trips to the salon every few weeks to get my acrylic nails done (lucky girl, I know!). We have been going to the same salon, Foxy Nails, for 9 years now, and my nail girl is Tawny. She is so sweet and always has fun new designs on her own nails. We share a favorite color and I love my time outs at the salon!!

Right before Thanksgiving, I was ready to decorate for the holidays ... that included my nails! I was finally able to get to the salon this week to get a fill (it was looong overdue thanks to a freak snowstorm), and loved my tips enough for one more round. I don't think the acrylics have fancy names (I will be sure to ask Tawny when she does my nails next), but I put this little combo together myself! A pretty, sparkly glitter tip with a red sparkly glitter stripe. Very fun for the holidays ... can't wait to see what we'll do next!

OPI A Ruby for Rudolph

OPI A Ruby for Rudolph

The sun came out today so I dashed outside to snap a pic of my newly painted nails. I really like this color!

Excuse the messiness on my pointer and ring fingers. I really need to work on clean-up. I got an OPI Correct and Clean-Up Pen, but it's a little too hard for my taste. I think I will try Katee's tip on the previous post about using a brush dipped in acetone and see if that works better for me.

OPI Season's Sparklings!


OPI Pretty Plum-tuous (2 coats)
OPI Season's Sparklings! (1 coat)
both from the Ulta OPI Season's Sparklings! Christmas Mini

Mr. Sasha just came in and saw my nails and said, "Whoa, whatcha got going on there? That's....... different!"

What do men know? I actually like it. Not sure I'd wear it all the time, but it's the holidays, and time to be "sparkly".
