Twinkie Nail Art Challenge Day 1: Throwback Mani

Happy Friday, everybody!  The weekend is upon us as is the start of the Twinkie Nail Art challenge.  This is a one manicure per week challenge, on Fridays during August, which is more my speed as far as these things go.  I’ve only done one challenge before, and that was a 5 day one which seemed to work OK. this challenge is being hosted by Polished by Beckie and Spilled Milk Nails.  Thank you, ladies, for giving me a chance to force myself to practice nail art LOL.  I am excited to do my actual first ever gradient for this challenge, stay tuned to the blog to witness that next week!  First, however, is today’s challenge: the Throwback mani.

Opi Vant To Bite My Neck?

Hey, everybody!  I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.  So far so good here. I am cat-sitting for friends/neighbors so my cats are wondering why I have strange smells on me.  You cat lovers know that look they give you, as if to say, “Where have YOU been and WHO have you been PETTING!?!?”.  I suppose it’s the equivalent of a man who’s spoken for coming home to his lady with stripper glitter all over him.  LOL  Cats, gotta love ’em.

This is another of my Smart Style Salon bargains.  Check here for more information if you are not familiar with Smart Style Salons and their love of selling OPI polishes Buy One Get TWO Free! Seriously.  Not one part of that scenario makes me mad. *sweet smile* Anyhow, I have more OPI Polish on the menu today.  OPI Vant To Bite My Neck? comes to me from 2013’s Euro Centrale Collection. So many clever names for these polishes, huh?  This is the truest purple creme polish I own. It’s dark and smooth and in some lighting actually takes on a bit of a dusty look.  This polish could be used as a single layer polish if you really wanted to save some time.

OPI Scores A Goal!

Hello, all!  I hope you all are having a great week so far. I have been looking for a job for a couple weeks, with my recent contract position ending, and am also looking to move from an administrative role to a more technical one in the process.  That makes a job search really interesting, let me tell ya.  I had an interview for what would be my FIRST EVER technical job in an SAP support role and I think it actually went well.  I am three classes away from my Bachelor’s in Computer Science, so it’s about time I put my “nerdy girl” pants on and got into the field I wanted to be in.   Time will tell if this is the first step, but it’s on my mind and wanted to share. But I digress.  What I really wanted to talk to you about is today’s polish…..

Today I am sharing OPI Scores A Goal! from the Spring/Summer 2014 Brazil Collection.  Looks like I am a day (at least) late and a dollar short on riding the coattails of FIFA’s World Cup frenzy, huh?  Wish me better luck in 2016 (and hope for anther coordinating polish set being released relating to the host country).  Anyhow, back to the polish lol.  This color is a very rich, brown-leaning purple polish. Maybe a purple leaning brown?  Take your pick.  I’ve seen this described as a purplish-red or grey, but there seems to be more brown in this color than red or grey to me.  I suppose it could depend on the skin tone of the person wearing it?
