Newspaper Nails

I just happened to stumble upon a video of this nail tutorial on youtube yesterday and thought it was just too cute to pass up!!
You have to be pretty gentle with the newspaper because if it slides around it will look smeared like my ring finger does in the pic below. Oh the color is OPI Rumples Wiggin from the Shrek Collection...

Birds of a Feather (Response Post)

Okay so...this was super difficult for me...I do not have very steady hands! But I had to try it. I give ALL the credit to Ericka at <> and Jennifer at <>. It's hard to cut the feathers as close to your nail as possible with shaky hands and eyes that won't focus! On my other nails i used 2 coats of OPI You Don't Know Jaques! followed by a coat of SV. I bet this "one" feathered nail would really pop if it were surrounded by 4 bright red nails...but oh well!

My Passion for Moscato

I have a huge space in my heart reserved for my love of wine, especially Moscato! There are about 4 different brands that I favor, and 4 or 5 different Moscato D'Asti brands that are high on my list of favorites as well. D'Asti means that it is a sparkling wine that has significant levels of carbon dioxide in it that makes it fizzy. So enough with the wine lesson...I want to introduce to you my absolute favorite...Castello Del Poggio. It is a sweet white wine and goes perfect with desserts (or alone).  It has around 7% alcohol content, which is nice and low compared to most of the red wines I prefer that have between 13-15%. It is very light and crisp. And it's even better with a couple of fresh blackberries or raspberries added. This wine is also wonderful to use in a mimosa instead of champagne because it is so sweet. The two bottles depicted below are the exact same wine, with different packaging. I bought one from a local store and the other was shipped to me by a friend from about three hours away. The price can range anywhere between $6 up to $50 a bottle! This particular one costs around $17. Visit your local wine market and get yourself bottle of this beautifullovelything...Enjoy!! 

Chloe's Nails (Inspiration Blog)

Big shout out to Erika at I can't wait to see what she posts everyday! This mani was definitely inspired by her. I used one coat of Sally Hansen Pearly Gloss; for the stamp Bundle Monster #21 and Revlon ColorStay in Continuous Berry. Then an SV topcoat. Enjoy!
