Beginning n January it was time to get my nails done again. What design to do? That was the question. I get mine done once a month so I wanted them to be fun but have some Valentine’s Day since I would not be getting them done again until close to Valentine’s Day itself.

I told my favorite nail designers this and they came up with a wonderful idea.

It’s time for Christmas Nails!!! December 4, 2014

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year so I get very excited when it is time to decorate my nails. It is my way of taking Christmas with me everywhere. It is a huge bonus that Lyna at Fashion Nails does some amazing designs.

I love my nails! I don’t think that I could even pick a favorite nail either. Maybe since I got them done a bit earlier this year, I will have time to get a second set of Christmas. I was thinking about testing out some Dr. Who winter nails…. hmmm let the planning begin.

 

November means Fall and Christmas Prep November 11, 2014

For November we decided to be eclectic with my nails. It is fall and football season so we did some fun call designs. By fun I mostly mean… Minions!!

My thumbs are decorated differently from the rest. One thumb is Seahawks and the other is a reindeer with christmas lights on his antlers.

You might be thinking “Why a reindeer? Isn’t it a bit early for Christmas designs?” Well yes it could be early for some people to do Christmas nail design but not me. I go in once a month to have my nails done and since I went in at the beginning of November, I would not get back to have them done again until the beginning of December. That does not sounds so bad but I did not want to wait. You see my family decorates for Christmas the day after  Thanksgiving. I decided to do the reindeer so that I would have a Christmas nail on that day.

Make sense now? Oh well, it does to me and I can not help but smile at my fun nails. Can’t wait to see what we do in December!

 

Something New to Share – Nail Art November 5, 2014

For the last four years I have been getting my nails professionally done by Fashion Nails in Rocklin, CA. Even though sometimes it seemed like a bit of a drive to get there it has always been worth it.

Last night, while I was talking to Marmie about my new nail designs, Marmie pointed out that I have not blogged about my nails. They are always difference and fun so I have decided it is time to start sharing. Since I am not sure where to start, I will start by sharing the nails from our trip to Disney World in August.

In Downtown Disney I was stopped by some Disney Cast Members and asked if they  could take pictures of my nails. I was proud to share. Lyna and Mike do some amazing work.
