Do you ever have those days when you set out to do one thing, but end up doing something completely different?
That is how this makeup design happened.
I gathered my ideas, listened to inspirational music, pinned images, sketched out the design yet during the application process something changed.
Something magically creative happened.
I love being in the moment and letting inspiration flow through me. I love the end result, looking at the finished product and finding out I like it just a bit more that my original idea.
Oh to be able to bottle these magically creative moments!!
For now I will have to settle for taking pictures to remember these moments by!
Happy Mani Monday–pm edition!
Thought I would shake things up a bit and do an evening post.
Okay-totally overslept the alarm this morning hence the evening post.
This is my last fall inspired mani for this year and I took this inspiration from my favorite fall drink – Hot Cocoa! I used a dark brown and lovely rich purple which by the way would make a great duo for eyeshadow.
Products used: AVON Forbidden Fudge and Decadence.
Enjoy the last week of November and check back for this month’s fantasy makeup segment! I am very excited to share it with you!
See you next Mani Monday with Christmas Nails!!
Welcome to the Thanksgiving Edition of Mani Monday!
I absolutely love Thanksgiving week. It’s like the calm before the storm of activity hits with a bonus of especially good food and fellowship.
So, what is everyone thankful for this year?
I am thankful for my friends both old and new, my family, and my faith.
I am also thankful for a great set of nails.
All colors are from Avon:
Barefoot Beige, Lucky Penny, Gleaming Gold, Midnight Green, and Forbidden Fudge.
Wishing you a blessed, fun, and safe week!
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Welcome to Mani Monday on a Tuesday!
Today’s mani is inspired by pumpkins and a dip dye technique that I saw on Polish Alcoholic’s blog.
Below is my rendition of this technique but check out NOTD: Dip Dye to see where the inspiration began!
All colors are once again from Avon which are still incredibly $3.49. I have been stocking up before the price decides to pop back up!
