This design mostly uses polishes from the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean collection. This is one of my favorite polish collection of all time. I love the muted, dusty looking pastels.1-Phonto1361205287085

Manicure Monday: Catching Up January 21, 2013

Sorry about my lack of posts the last couple of weeks. I’ve been settling into a new job and a new schedule. I took pictures of some of my manis over the past couple weeks and will share those with you now.

This first manicure is Julep Mila. I did this mani when I was planning on participating in Judi’s “Julep January” theme. Watch Judi’s eye opening video to find out why “Julep January” didn’t last very long. I knew the Julep bottles contained less polish than standard bottles but to see how much is actually contained in those bottles was enough to make me second guess my Julep Maven subscription. I’m still debating on whether I want to continue as a Julep Maven. On one hand I love the excitement of it but on the other hand I feel like I am getting ripped off. I’m most likely going to be cancelling in the next day or two before February’s box ships. What are your thoughts on the Julep Maven program?

For my next mani I wanted to incorporate the color of the year: EMERALD. I added a little leopard print and I was good to go!

Manicure Monday: SantaCon Edition December 17, 2012

This past Saturday was SantaCon here in San Francisco. SantaCon is everyone’s chance to be Santa! Dress up as Santa or any of his merry helpers (elves, trees, reindeer, milk and cookies, etc) and spread the Christmas cheer! SantaCon originated in San Francisco in 1994 and now takes place in 37 countries and 276 cities. Ways of participating in SantaCon are passing out candy canes, giving toys to children, giving gloves/hats to homeless, having a snowball fight, etc. In general, Santa consumes many adult beverages during SantaCon and the entire city turns into a bar crawl.

Here are some pictures from the 2012 SF SantaCon:

Unfortunately the weather was cold and rainy but it was so much fun seeing red EVERYWHERE!!! Some people came up with some very creative costumes as well. Our little group was made up of a reindeer, a Christmas tree and a Santa.

I dressed as a Christmas tree for SantaCon so I decided to paint my nails with Christmas presents!
