Whew! It’s December already and the countdown to Christmas and New Year’s is in full effect! Can you believe it?
Well, this week’s mani is inspired by Black Friday, which I’m aware was last week…better late than never, right? I had every intention of polishing my nails on Thanksgiving eve but totally lost all track of time. I ended up putting off until I just didn’t feel like doing it at all. *sigh* But despite my busted nails I did enjoy myself. I had an awesome Thanksgiving break! It’s always a good time when you spend it with family and friends.

Here are few outtakes from Black Friday…the inspiration behind this week’s mani.
What are you rocking on your nails this week? Did you go out on Black Friday?
This past weekend was bitter-sweet and extremely busy…I’ve been spending the past few days playing catch up just to do it all over again this weekend. School will be starting next week and yes I’m crunk about it but don’t tell my boys. With all the craziness going on I needed to take a moment to breathe. And what better way to relax than with a mani…
This week’s mani is special because the polish was gifted to my by a fellow vlogger, SweetOne1299. A few weeks ago, she posted pictures on Instagram of several great clearance cosmetic finds she scored from her local Walgreens. So I ran to my local Walgreens, within minutes of her post (it’s just that serious) and found the nothing! But SweetOne1299 came to my rescue…lol! She sent me a box of goodies! All I can say is her name definitely fits her…

I’m not quite sure why this pastel purple shade is named Full Steam Ahead but I love it. What do you think? What’s your favorite shade by Essie? Have you found any great cosmetics on clearance lately?
I hope y’all enjoyed your Mother’s Day weekend. I had a chance to visit my folks and my grandparents which is always a treat. Since I was out-of-town, I didn’t get a chance or even feel like doing anything extra special with my nails. I ended up rocking a pretty neutral nail polish…a little on the blah side and not really worth sharing in my opinion. So this weeks MANICure Monday post is going to be a little different. I’ve decided to share the mani’s that didn’t quite make the Just Another MANICure Monday list for whatever reason…
This is one of my favs and I’m not sure why I never posted it.
Can you see the purple glitter?
This mani was a complete fail…smh
My St. Patrick’s Day Mani
I’m not sure what I was trying to do here, but I like the color combo.
MANICure Monday is a weekly nail polish/mani link-up that is rotated between Mimi of Lipgloss and Binky and Effie Lynn of LA Lynn’s. This week you can head over to LA Lynn’s to see more fab mani’s.
What are you rocking on your nails this week? Do you have a fav mani color? Did you do anything special this weekend?
Yeah, I know I just posted about my weekend mani but it didn’t last very long after all the cleaning on Friday and Saturday, so you know I had to change it. Other than cleaning and running a few errands my weekend was pretty relaxing. The weekend highlight was the homemade salsa I whipped up for Cinco de Mayo. Of course, I found the recipe on my fav site Pinterest…it was quick, simple and delicious. Anywho, on to this week’s MANICure…
I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with my nails this week. I wasn’t feeling the glitter accent nail and I didn’t want to go with just a plain ol’ mani either. But it was kinda late so I had to do something simple, so I pulled out my trusty dotting tool. I decided to go with my fav nude, Sand Tropez by Essie. And I love how bright colors just pop against that shade so I got busy. Check out what I came up with.
Well the weekend has officially come and gone….I spent most of my Saturday morning hitting up a few yard sales at some local churches in my area. And yes, I scored BIG. One of the churches has a semi-annual yard sale with “fill-a-bag” (a paper bag that is) with clothes only for $8. So you already know your girl was rolling and stuffing clothes in the bag to the max….lol. I spent the rest of my weekend Spring Cleaning. All I can say is that the weekend flew by and I still have tons of chores that I need to get done. Oh well the story of my life, I guess. But in the midst of everything, I did get a chance to do my nails.
I realized once I was done polishing my nails that this week’s polish choice was very similar to what I had on last week. Apparently I have a thing for hot pink/coral shades. However this week I decided to add an accent nail using my fav nude polish and a little glitter. I really like it so you’ll more than likely be seeing it again real soon. Check out this week’s MANICure and let me know what you think….

So what do you think of the accent nail? I like the silver and gold contrast against the nude polish. Like I said you’ll probably be seeing it again soon…lol. To see even more cute MANICures check out Lipgloss & Binky, my girl MiMi is hosting this weeks Just Another MANICure Monday link-up.
