A Couple of St. Patrick's Day Looks
Last week got a little hectic with an impromptu visit from my dad, the cleaning that frantically came before, and some apartment projects (hello new bookcase and chair!).  My nails took a brutal beating, so I'm cut down to uneven shorties now (see 2nd photo...

This is a special post for me because it's a post for a special lady. I work with Lisa.  Lisa is a badass. Lisa rides motorcycles and fights fires and makes me laugh like no other at work. Lisa is brave and strong and incredibly open and vulnerable. Lisa is...

I hit a bit of a "polishers block" last week.  I REALLY wanted to use one of these polishes, Fashion Addict, and was trying hard to find something creative to do with it.  Honestly, I really just wanted to wear it all on its own, but my polish and photo ski...

Crumpet's 31DC: Blue Base
I wish I had thought of this for contrasting/complementary colors.  I added a different colored accent at the last minute and kicked myself for not thinking of this a couple of days ago because I'm diggin' it! *1 coat Gelous base *5 (that's right, 5) coats ...

Crumpet's 31DC: Topper - Non-glitter
This prompt really only left me with one option: matte top coat. I have a lot of flakies and shimmers, but I felt like those were still in the realm of "glitter," so matte it is. All of my ideas for a matte mani also included glitter, though.  If you haven'...
