February's Nail Art and CVC Game Winner!!

I am a person who adores winter - the coldness, the snow, the quietness of it all. However I must say enough is enough!! This is our 3rd straight weekend storm. Third. With significant snowfall too! Thankfully I am on vacation so there is none of the chaos of cleaning off the car and driving in it!! Needless to say I am really ready for Spring and quite envious of all you warm weathered people!! Now back to my blogginess!

Congratulations to Melinda! She is the winner of the CVC Short Vowel Games! I sent an email off to you this morning Melinda - thanks for entering!

Next up we have February's Nails! February is so brief there are only 3 nail designs. If yo like any of the colors just click on the names of the polishes for an Amazon Link.

I started the month out with a shades of blue (perhaps on homage to my feelings as a result of the endless winter!)
Polishes: China's Glaze For Audrey on my pinky, China Glaze Towel Boy Toy on my ring finger, Essie Go Overboard on my middle finger, Zoya Charla on my index finger and Nicole by OPI Iceberg Lotus on my thumb.

Then came Valentine's Week!
Polishes: Sally Hansen Hot Magenta topped with Zoya Nova on my pinky, China Glaze Draped in Velvet on my ring finger, (the heart was done with Sally Hansen Hot Magenta) Zoya Mimi on my middle finger, Nicole by OPI Virtuous Violet as a base coat - with Sally Hansen Hot Magenta and Zoya Charisma for the dots on my index finger, and Zoya Aurora for my thumb!

(Side note: This is my left hand, so of course being a righty my nail art always looks better on this hand. I attempted a heart on my right hand and totally butchered it. Like seriously bad. So I took my nail art brush and swirled away until it sort of passed for marble. Sort of. I will not offer a picture of that catastrophe!!)

I am smitten with how this last set came out. I knew I wanted to use gold and black but I was not sure what I wanted to do for nail art. I googled gold with black nail art and came across this picture. (No source unfortunately, but I must say she has great taste!) I love how it came out so I decided to try it!
Polishes: Zoya Ziv for the base coat and Sally Hansen Ink Splatter for the Crackle effect. I loved how easy this was - just one stripe of crackle down the left side and I was done!

I will definitely be trying this out again soon. I am thinking of using my silver crackle next time though!

What's on your nails this week?


  1. Those last ones were my favorite too!! I am with you on the winter weather. Wait, I can tell you this because I am sitting across the room from you!!!!! :) :)

    1. OK, you crack me up with the across the room comment. I am going to have to move to over there just so I can hang out with you ladies. :P

  2. Ok, I adore that last set! However, that heart, just makes me want to paint my nails. LOL. :)

    As for Winter, well I am a summer girl at heart and I am WAY over the cold and the storms. Give me some heat.

    1. Thanks Melissa! Yeah, winter has had its fun & now it needs to leave! I am ready for Spring!
