As I sit here sipping on my peppermint mocha and enjoying the fact that I took the entire Thanksgiving week off, I realize that there is no denying the holidays are in full swing. While lights, music and all the rest of the hullabaloo makes me feel festive, I just wish we could get through freakin' Halloween before all the retailers start shoving this stuff down our throats.
Here's some puppy paws in the snow just to make you smile ~

It is seriously 14 damn degrees in Colorado tonight agh!! I can't handle it. Considering the temps have dropped and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I figured I better start matching the manis. I have to say this is one of my favorites. So many of you all are so creative and talented I get jealous sometimes because every creation is just stellar.
I on the other hand, am in love with a mani about every other month - glad to add this one to that short list. This is two coats of Color Club Wild Cactus. A really wonderful dark teal cream to add to the stash. I then used Sally Hansen nail guides to create the chevron design followed by a quick coat of China Glaze I'm Not Lion.
So, how is the winter where you are? Any tips for coping besides my fave solution of liquid warmth?

I barely own any Barielle polishes. In fact the only reason I do is because I had a Birthday swap group months ago (I am still a bit disgruntled as it was cancelled without notice, of course after we had sent a package or two) and winning a great Facebook giveaway. Sweetly enough, the one lovely lady who I had sent a B-Day package to insisted on reciprocating (thanks Anja!).

I know we're way into November, turkeys, cornucopias etc. I've been very behind. When it's dark out at night all I want to do is grab a glass of wine and snuggle with all my boys in front of the boob tube after work. I'm really trying to get motivated to do more nail art!
Still, the orange flakie and vampy color payoff was worth the pain in applying. I then ATTEMPTED the face brush nail art technique. You know the one where you wet your brush and draw it across your nails? This was supposed to look liked candy corn. Um not. It was one coat of Cover Girl unnamed followed by Essence Be Your Sunshine followed by China Glaze Life Preserver.
