It's disturbing to me that next week is Christmas. Even though I'm pretty much ready except for all of the baking, it seems to sneak up on me. I shop, I blink, it's here.

Tyler will be coming home on Monday, which is fantabulous. It should be very interesting having a five month old puppy in the house for the holidays. Christmas Eve when the whole family is at my place is going to be a real zoo. Hopefully my mom and brother-in-law will survive it. They are not big fans of the commotion. My house barely accommodates the 13 of us plus dogs. Personally, I kind of like it. Even the hubby will be coming home that day. It's been a couple of years since I had everybody there at one time, and I'm hoping I remember to try to get a complete family pic.

I'm still rocking the poinsettia mani because it's just to pretty to take off.  Well, that and the fact that it took me so long to do so I figured I should get my wear out of it. I look at it a lot.

Not all of my mani's have been holiday oriented, as you can see by this one. I can't remember if this was from last week or the week before. I so cannot keep track since I do them and then throw them on here as a draft until I can get back to them for an actual post.
Essie Nothing Else Metals, OPI Vant to Bite My Neck, MoYou Pro XL 06 stamp
If memory serves, I wore the Essie Nothing Else Metals on its own for a day before deciding to stamp on it.  I hadn't tried any of the partial designs from my MoYou Pro XL 06 plate and decided I'd try it. I figured if I didn't like it or if it didn't turn out, I'd just start over with something else.  I used OPI Vant to Bite My Neck for the design, and I really like the color on top of the pink.

Overall, I really kind of liked this one. I've always been a big fan of anything that's kind of scrolled, and this one is no exception. I do think I had to re-do a couple of them for placement, but I guess I can't always get it right the first time.

Oh, man. My mom just called asking for ideas for Christmas. She's having a hard time finishing up on me. And of course, I had nothing to tell her. I thought of something I wanted the other night while I was standing in the kitchen.

If someone can possibly remind me of what that idea was, I'd appreciate it. 

I vaguely remember when I used to have a memory.

  1. I'm in love with this manicure! it's absolutely gorgeous, no wonder you didn't want to take it off in any hurry.
