Advent Calendar Nail Challenge!

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a Nail Challenge I created. It's based and inspired by the nail art 31 day challenge that floats around the nail polish world... but it's Christmas themed, and only 24 days long so you have time to relax and enjoy your presents after Christmas Eve!

The "rules" are simple: be inspired by the suggestions for each day! I tried to be a little vague so that you could find inspiration for what each day means to you. I'll be circulating this calendar on Instagram (my username is happyhandsnailpolish) as well as my blog and my Happy Hands Nail Polish Facebook page. I hope you'll take part and repost this image (though please do not remove anything or edit it besides adding Instagram filters) and if you post your challenges on Instagram or Twitter, please tag them with #adventcalendarchallenge and #happyhandsnailpolish so everyone can find them. And most importantly, have fun!

When I'm Not In The Mood For Color

Hi Everyone,

I love color and of course I love nail polish, but some days I'm just not in the mood for any color.   I always pull out my favorite nude.

OPI Tickle My France-y is from the 2008 OPI La Collection De France Collection it's my go to mannequin hands color.  I think it's flattering against my skintone looks clean and fresh.  OPI Tickle My France-y is a jelly/creme beige/taupe that needs 3 coats to cover my nail line.

What is your favorite when you are not in the mood for color?

Have a great nail polish day!

Oopsie Daisies Apple Picking

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a wonderful fall-themed indie with you today: Oopsie Daisies Apple Picking. I saw this and had to have it immediately. I also acquired a fabulous yellow creme, Revlon Colorstay Buttercup, to use as undies (MY FIRST YELLOW CREME...that is crazy in a stash of ~800).

For a complete review, see my blog entry. Thanks for looking guys!

What I bought from the OPI Skyfall holiday 2012 collection

Goldeneye: irregular gold microglitter/shimmer in a clear, deep golden-yellow base.  This is three coats.  Not super-flattering but I DON'T CARE.  It's gorgeous!  Picture taken under overcast skies.
