Nothing better than cookies and milk. How sweet are these heart shaped cookies?!

Favorite Valentine’s Decor:

So simple and so cute!

Favorite Valentine’s Manicure:

Mad Manis Valentine’s Love Birds mani is so cute!

Favorite Valentine’s Gift to Give:

Such a cute idea for Valentine’s gifts. Just cut out hearts and write a little note on them then replace the tags on tea bags with your homemade heart tags. I think this would be a cute idea to give coworkers.

Bonus, there are a variety of printables available to use throughout the year.

Do you have any special plans for Valentine’s Day?

This is the best polish storage/organization idea I have ever seen!

The Mani Cave…oh how I’ve neglected you. Finally in early December I threw in the towel and committed to picking up the quest after the New Year. I haven’t completely ignored the room. Over the last few weeks I’ve bought lighting, fabric and a few other items. They are piling up in the corner just waiting for installation. But what I really want to show you is this…

Yesterday, I spent hours and hours hanging one of my new polish shelving systems. I wanted something with a TON of storage. But I also wanted it to be a piece of art in and of itself. I just couldn’t get excited about the traditional acrylic polish racks. I knew I wanted something glass or metal and very clean and minimal. Awhile back, I had the bright idea to use cabinet pulls from IKEA. After bringing home at least four different types…

I’m Back!! December 2, 2012

Life got in the way of blogging for a while but I am happy to finally be back!

I’ve come up with a blogging schedule that I think should be fairly easy for me to stick to so I don’t go months away from all of you again!

Thanks for sticking around!

From the beginning I didn’t want this blog to be solely based on nail art but that is what happened. I’ve come up with ways to incorporate other pursuits. I think these changes will make things more interesting around here!

Normal blogging resumes tomorrow!

So I have to admit, I’m an awful student and I’m sitting in class at the moment looking up fall nail polish collections.  It suddenly dawned on me that I haven’t heard anything about a China Glaze Fall collection.  Upon looking around, I finally found a few sites that have hints of a possible all duochrome collection!  I can’t confirm if this information is correct, but I’m seeing some promotional images for a 6 piece all duochrome collection.  Hopefully these promotional pictures are correct and this won’t be another Hunger Games Collection catastrophe (where China Glaze released promotional pictures, they leaked and then cancelled the collection and then decided to release it with all new names). But hopefully all you duochrome lovers out there will get as excited as I am for some of these shades!
