Birds of a Feather

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!!

 

Mani Monday-Thanksgiving

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.

Mani Monday on a Tuesday

Welcome to Mani Monday on a Tuesday!

What color combinations would you try?
