OPI Gargantuan Green Grape

Hello all! I hope this finds you well. Are you ready for the Super Bowl on Sunday? This Floridian is so rooting for my fellow corner-city, Seattle! I hope it’s going to be a good game. I’m super excited for Renee Flemming! I keep it hush-hush, but I’m a classically trained singer and can’t wait to hear what she does with it. My ears are missing that sound.

Today, I have a simple manicure to share. I’ve been lemming after this color for a while and finally got my hands on it.

LLReinvention: French Manicure

Hey guys! I am currently using my mother’s camera until I can purchase another one. It’s been a massive difference between the two, so the styles are going to be drastically different. Hopefully, the pictures still come out well.

Today, I have something different. A couple weeks ago, The Lacquer Legion came into being as a way for nail bloggers and artists to connect through themed manicures. I love looking at all of the sub-communities and how they incorporate nail art, so I thought this was a fun way to jump in to these kind of challenges. Today’s theme is “reinvention.” All I could think about for this theme was reinventing a classic, and was stuck on a French manicure. So, I tried to spice up it up and came up with this.

Some Bad News

My camera died over the weekend. The batteries were running low, so I assumed it wasn’t turning on because of dead batteries. However, after trying brand new batteries (and borrowing some from every remote I could find), I learned the truth.

I’m going to try to find a replacement as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I don’t have the funds to purchase a replacement immediately. I’m hoping to be able to borrow from family members for the time being. We’ll see how it goes.

Hopefully, I’ll be back Thursday. I’m so sad. My 50th post on this blog is to share a delay. I’m going to make the next 50 awesome.


Hey there! About a month and a half ago, I tried another ruffian manicure with a bigger color contrast. I have been hesitant to post the photos because I don’t really like the manicure. I tried it right after filing my length off, and the darker color was harder to manage than I anticipated. But, I’ve had a dry spell on nail art lately, so this is really all I have.

OPI Calendar: January

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful celebration. I have a few things I’m hoping to do this coming year, but first! Something new to introduce. I received an OPI calendar from work this year. I received one last year, but decided to do something with it this year. Each month depicts a color scheme using three or four OPI polishes, and I’ve decided to do a manicure each month with the colors they have chosen. For January, they’ve chosen this color scheme.
