Fun Festive Nails!

So this week I decided that I wanted a different take on festive nails.  I love a good red nail polish, but this week I wanted something different.  I read about some lavender nail polish on a website this week and decided to give it my own flair.  Here’s what I came up with: OPI’s Planks a Lot (a creamy lavender) from the Pirate’s of the Caribbean collection (released earlier this year) with Wet n Wild’s Party of Five Glitters as a top coat.

I LOVE the finished look! This is a fun take on party nails. It makes me think of what Lime Crime would look like if they had a nail polish. I used 2 coats of Planks a Lot and 2 coats of the glitter.  The next day I put a topcoat over it (Zoya) to extend the wear-time.

What are some of your favorite nail polish colors and ideas?

Paleo: Day 28

I made Egg Tortes today for breakfast… (I was proud of myself, I separated the eggs without an egg separator for the first time in my life) after whisking the egg whites to their optimal fluffiness I couldn’t resist yelling, “It’s so FLUFFY!!!”

I also had to yell, “Someone has stolen three of my TORTES!!!!” (get it? Tortes… instead of tarts.) Anyway, they were delicious.

For lunch today I made beef fajitas with bell pepper and onion… I had an orthodontist appointment earlier (ouch!), so I heated up some butternut squash (since it’s soft) to go with mine… it was fantastic.

I made Greek Salmon for dinner… the recipe was for Greek Sea Scallops… but I had salmon and I’m not really sure if I like sea scallops… it turned out to be amazing! I love salmon!

I wore a bright purple eyeshadow today (Empress by Lime Crime) over their Candy Eyed Primer… and it lasted all day (even through a workout) and it still looks fantastic.  It is seriously my favorite primer now.  Speaking of Lime Crime… they are having a one-day sale on their eyeshadow and primer on October 1, you can find more details on their facebook page.

Paleo: Day 28!!!! Yay!!! Also, tomorrow is National Coffee Day… drink up me hearties yo ho!! 😉
