We're not quite snowed in today, but it's close. As a valley Oregonian who rarely sees snow heading out in this weather can be a little, uh, stressful? I got stuck in TWO snow drifts yesterday. Thank goodness for the sweet guys who helped me get back out who are probably still laughing their arses off at my stupidity. Then I fell on my rear when I stepped into the grocery store. I literally ended up shopping in my socks. I should probably be thankful I wore matching ones that were cute. Today I shall attempt no such feats and hope my bum stops feeling so bruised (and possibly my pride).
However the nice thing about snow though is that it is BRIGHT! It's like nature's light box really.
This is after three days of wear! My darling friend over at Constantly Redone picked up this vampy purple toned burgundy by Sinful Colors called Black Cherry and decided it just wasn't for her. It's the base on the nails and I topped it off with China Glaze Travel in Colour. While there is top coat on the China Glaze topped nails there isn't on the Sinful Colors ones. LOVE! The formula is pretty finicky, but two coats built beautifully and left a wonderful matte finish behind. Also just look at that slight duochrome on the China Glaze!!! *SWOON*
Somehow this manicure just felt perfect the last few days while I watched the snow pile up and my sanity slink away.
