As I’ve come to tell you, multiple times, over the years, red nail polish and I just aren’t friends. I guess we’re more like frenemies in that I’ll wear it but it’s not like my BFF who I want to hang out with all the time. However, the boyfriend LOVES red and hey, it’s not all about me (just mainly about me). And there are some red shades that suck me in.

Three Ways To Wear Sally Hansen “Fuzzy Coat” Textured Nail Polish

While textured nail polish is, without a doubt, the predominant trend for 2013, it’s also extremely polarizing. There is a hard line in the sand when it comes to the love/hate relationship we have with the look. And though sand texture has made the biggest impact, the fuzzy/feathered look isn’t far behind. Enter Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat.

Mani Monday – Art Deco Nail Art with China Glaze for Jump Back Ball 22

Saturday night, the boyfriend and I headed downtown to Cleveland’s Playhouse Square for the 22nd Annual Jump Back Ball and we had a blast. At least what I can remember of it. I may have mixed wine, beer and liquor and that just may have resulted in a slightly fuzzy memory of the night not to mention the worst hangover ever, oy! Lesson learned… eat more prior and HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE.


Regardless of my alcohol intake, mistakes were made, I had a fabulous time with my boyfriend and friends at what is one of the best parties in Cleveland. And thanks to all of your fantastic suggestions, I rocked a manicure worthy of a Penny from Happy Endings “ah-MAH-zing.”

Mani Monday – Wedding Glitz with Essie and Sally Hansen

Over the long Thanksgiving weekend, the BF and I traveled to Pittsburgh to celebrate the nuptials of two of our friends. In the past, my go-to wedding dress color is black so I pair it with fun nail color choices but since I joined Weight Watchers and shed 55 pounds, I’ve become a bit bolder in my clothing choices.

I am slowly incorporating more color into my wardrobe so, lately, I find myself opting for metallic nail colors for events. Since my dress was red with a black leopard print, I found myself going down the silver/pewter road for the special occasion.


At the time, I was in the middle of reorganizing my hot mess of an office so I was fortunate to have recently received Essie Beyond Cozy from the Winter 2012 collection and Sally Hansen Shoot The Moon which will become part of the permanent line in March but is out in promo displays now. Together, they take glitz and glam to the next level. Check it out!
