Neon nails and Origami Owl

Hello wonderful people! It is I, Mommy Does, with a blog post. I know right! Hard to believe ;)

Since my promotion at work, end of school year, and somehow getting laundry done has eaten all my extra time...oh who am I kidding. Who does laundry anyways? Anyways I apologize for the long delay in posts. I think about blogging all the time, but it usually comes down to shall I blog or shall I actually make a meal for my family so they feel like mommy still cares? Finding balance is rough and I applaud all of you who have found it.

Lately I haven't had much time for nail art. Actually I'm lucky if I get to put on top coat anymore. Yesterday I was rummaging and needing something quick and pretty and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy jumped out at me. Also I forgot how hard it is to photograph neon...anyhow I topped it off with Essie As Gold As It Gets and fell madly in love with the look and just had to share.

Love, love, love! On a related topic I got my Origami Owl order. They have a blog charm so I just had to share my necklace with you too.

Super in love with everything about it. If you haven't checked out Origami Owl and use Frankie Caswell as your designer. They make really great gifts too. I got a necklace for my sister as a congratulations for having a new baby (I HAVE A NEW NIECE!) and one for my mother-in-law in memory of her husband who passed away. You can tell a beautiful and memorable story and it's so much more meaningful then flowers I think.

These are the other charms I grabbed. My favorite is probably the infinity symbol.

Now I am off to go car shopping with hubby as his car got totaled. By the way all of those things I just mentioned happened in the same week. Did I mention it's been crazy around here? I hope you are having a better month. ;)


  1. You make everything you put on your nails look special.

  3. Wow, that mani is just stunning and I LOVE those little charms. What a great idea for a gift!

  5. Soooo pretty! I recently did a similar mani with GC son of a peach, and a gold/silver sparkle top coat. LOVE IT!
