Just Another MANICure MONDAY


I’m hosting this week and I always love to have you but this week I feel like I have company and my house isn’t clean because I couldn’t get my nail art to work so I had to keep it simple this week to save my nerves from being rattled.

Well I see my co host La Lynns rocked it this week. *hangs head in shame*

So I decided I would have a glass of wine, watch RHOA and paint my nails. Bad combo. I think the wine was making my hand a bit jittery. TRAGIC. I was going for this

I won’t show you what I ended up with but it was a MESS! By then I had really drank too much wine so instead I opted to stick with two very warm colors that remind me of harvest season and Thanksgiving…Booooring. Maybe next week.

I used: Finger Paints/Free Fawn and Revlon/Smoky Canvas

Moral of the story is don’t drink wine and attempt to paint your nails!!

Can’t wait to see what you ladies came up with!!

  1. Hey you tried, right? Nail art isn’t always as easy as it seems so I commend you. Plus you did end up with some nice color blocking, and it’s totally holiday appropriate. So, in short, you win!

  2. *looking at my nails*……*heavy sigh* I love this manicure Monday but I have not painted my nails since……well never mind since but they are not painted. I walked by some nail polish today and thought of you all then I said no Mimi and them will not have me buying up this stuff.

  3. Guess that makes me kinda boring ’cause I love this week’s mani. Womp! 🙂 Love the colors! Maybe since I’m off for the Thanksgiving break, I could paint my nails. I’m in love with blues right now, and recently purchased one called Blue Rose. It’s so soft and pretty!
