I grew up spending many a night in car lots with my parents on our way home from eating out. My dad loved wandering through the rows of cars, with no pressure from salesmen, to check out the latest releases. And even though he has to own a van for work, the man loves American muscle cars. He used to fix up and drag race them before I was born.

I guess it’s no surprise that my first serious boyfriend was also into muscle cars, specifically the Ford Mustang (he owned a ’87 Fastback). Thanks to him and my dad, I know way more about the car than I should. For that reason, I was excited to see what the OPI Mustang collaboration, celebrating the Mustang’s 50th Anniversary, would bring us.

Yesterday was the Cleveland Indians home opener and, in spite of the rain delays, wind and overall crazy weather, they managed to pull out a major win over the Twins. Now, because I suffer enough with weather during Browns season, I never go to opening day at The Jake (sorry Progressive), but I cheer from home with #RollTribe pride.

Fortunately, the new OPI MLB Collection arrived a few days ago, just in time for me to create some Indians-themed nail art. Partnering with a sports league is a first for OPI and these seven new shades scream Americana, just like our national pastime.

Happy Mani Monday/St. Patrick’s Day! I don’t know about you guys but my weekend was made a whole lot better by the release of the Veronica Mars movie.

As a Kickstarter backer of the film, I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for the return of this modern day Nancy Drew since last March. Though really, since it went off the air in 2007.

On Friday, I received my digital download of the movie and hosted a watch party with my fellow Marshmallows. I may or may not have watched it four times since then.

To celebrate the release of the film and in hopes that it does well enough to spawn sequels, I have a VMars-inspired manicure that, naturally, incorporates Essie Marshmallow. I mean, how could it not??

When it comes to textured nail polish, China Glaze certainly walks to the beat of its own drum. While other brands seem to be all, “the more glitter the merrier”, China Glaze continues to test us with their unique take on the genre.  Following up the polarizing Crinkled Chrome collection, China Glaze Sea Goddess mixes the more expected sparkling textures with creamy creations in a range of whimsical, dream-like shades.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been an Olympics-watching junkie this past week. I’ve been taping the live day coverage and watching the night coverage as well. I can’t get enough. And tonight is the start of my favorite event of the Winter Games, Ladies Figure Skating.

You may remember my interview with Olympian and COVERGIRL Gracie Gold where I showed you the nail art from her COVERGIRL photo shoot and the design she wore on the day of our chat. Well, to show my Team USA spirit, I’ve created a mash-up of both manicures to create one almighty Patriotic Nail Art explosion.
