Quarantine Christmas Mani #2

Are you ready for Christmas? I’m not but my nails most certainly are…

I have so much going on in my life, like most do now a days. I felt that I needed to reclaim my “ME” time even if only a couple of hours when everyone else in my home was asleep. This mani will be the last one before New Year’s Eve…

Polishes used for my mani: BKL~Once Upon a Generation (FF OCT 2020)
Different Dimension~Grunge NYC~116 Broadway Burgandy Frost
Stamping plates used: Maniology MXM043, M080 & M081

My cuticles are suffering with all the hand washing and sanitizing but from start to finish

Glisten & Glow~Ridgefilling Base Coat, Top Coat and Cuticle Oil (Sangria White Peach).
I would usually use CTRL-ALT-DEL (Latex Barrier) available scented and unscented, but it was late and in my defense I got lazy.
End result not to bad for an after midnight mani…

Try to carve out a little “ME” time everyday and disconnect even for a moment… watch a video, a movie, listen to music or like me polish your nails it doesn’t matter just take care of you. In order to care for others we need self-care first.

Until the next time or in my case until the next mani love yourself and be kind!

Quarantine Christmas Mani #1

Boy have I missed doing my nails 💅 So since March 2020 we’ve been in hell and right about that time my vision started going to shit (excuse my language). I was not able to do my nails like I use to and I felt really bad 😞 It’s been a struggle having to manage all the remote learning with my kids, doing all the housework cooking and cleaning alllllll day nonstop. I couldn’t watch the news because it was so overwhelming. The world was falling apart and there was no where to hide…no safe place.

Moving to present day, I’ve gone to the optometrist and since been given readers… I’m not mad, but it seemed to happen over night. Last night I finally did my first mani since this whole pandemic began. It made me smile like seriously 😃 SMILE!

I love it dry cuticles and all… All the hand washing is killing my skin, but I do use cuticle oils.
Items used in order:

Glisten & Glow Ridgefilling and Base Coat (in combo)

Nail Colors: BKL~I’m Never Gonna Financially From This (FF June 2020) alternating with NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel ~116 Broadway Burgundy Frost


Stamp Plates:
Maniology MXM 019 and Maniology MXM 044

I’m excited to have finally been able to paint my nails it meant the world to me small but meaningful to do something for me… What have you done just for you lately?

My Fall Manis…

How many manis do you do you do or get done in a month?

Well don’t judge me, but in a week, I can do my nails any where from three to five times. I’m a SAHM of three. My two youngest boys are 13 and 14 my eldest is 24 and pretty self sufficient. Its just something I do for “ME” time it relaxes me. Self care and love is necessary for mental health and I find doing my nails works for me. Below I’ll be sharing all the Fall manis I did in the month of September and the start of October.
