Pierre est ici!

Peanut's soon-to-be lovey has finally arrived! Can't wait to see what she thinks of him, but I really hope she likes him!!!

Pierre was hands-down the winner of the Battle of the Blablas! He was also my first choice of Blabla doll for Peanut. Buuuuut I believe in democracy, so everyone got a vote. Pierre was the only Blabla to get every voter's stamp of approval. Sure... I could've ordered Fleur... but Pierre... he's French AND has a cool green satchel. I wonder what Peanut will hide in there... oO

In case you were wondering... There were 5 other BlaBlas up for consideration...

Row 1: Mozart the Monkey, Prudence the Owl, Pierre the Bunny
 Row 2: Wink the Owl, Theo the Cat, Wooly the Sheep

And just because I'm in the mood to share...

Peanut totally tried to eat the sequins off my shirt the other day. Some parents might have freaked out, checking her mouth for loose sequins... (You know, in the event she could actually gum through the thread...) which I admit... I totally did. Some parents might've gotten mad or upset that their sequins now had a nice coating of drool all over them. Not me. Ohhhhhhh no.

I busted out laughing. And it still makes me smile when I think about it! Little girl loves the sparkles just as much as her mommy.


Yep. I'll keep 'er.

Sequins = YUM!

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
