Nude Nails Revisited & a Little Holiday Cheer

The very first post I did on this blog featured my nude nails.

Since it's been almost 2 months, I thought I'd share the progress my nails have made. They're longer, a bit stronger, and overall, I believe they're healthier.

True color I never achieve, because there's no way I could get this kind of sun normally.
 They're also obnoxiously bright in this photo because we had a big snow yesterday, and with the sun out, the albedo effect is out of control.

Our view of the famous Flatirons in Boulder, CO.
With the snow falling, the lights going up, and the endless loops of Christmas carols playing in every single store you walk into, it was obviously required that a holiday manicure accompany the merriment, gaiety, and joy.

Today's interpretation was done using Glittering Garland from China Glaze, and three polishes from the Sinful Colors nail art collection-Bad Chick (white), Flower Girl (gold), and Be My Valentine (red). Patience was key here, as it is in most manicures. I didn't realize how long it took, until after I noticed I had watched an online episode of a one hour show and another of a half-hour episode. Oops.

Time well spent though before the festivities tonight. Friends have told me that there is an ugly sweater beer crawl in downtown Boulder. After some thrifting and this paint job, I'm all set.


  1. Awesome! I hope that you have fun at the beer crawl. Your nails are so fun!! ^-^

  2. I love this! I really need to try doing this type of funky! Really really cool!

  3. Your nails look wonderful!!!!!
