It's all smooth sailing from here!

I'm finally taking off 3 days for the first time this year.  I never use vacation days, sick days or personal days from work, but recently we have been SOOOOOOO busy, I said "F' it" and decided to take off 3 work days and now I have 5 glorious days of NOTHING planned.......Hallelujah!!!

Actually I have lost p[planned, but it's just not "work", I have to get my haircut, go to Ikea to grab another Helmer, in silver,  (I like the Alex but it's only available in white), clean out my closet, prepare for  my garage sale, catch up on my magazine reading and movie watching and just overall...SLEEP!!!! WOOOO HOOO!!!!

So to start things off I have Essie "Smooth Sailing"

2 coats














I hunted long and hard for this one, and when I couldn't find it I asked the ladies on the MUA nail board
 where they found their bottles and one of them said "K-mart".  So I hopped my fanny over toK-mart and there it was... a full untouched display. I grabbed both bottles..hee hee :P



























The first coat was "odd", kinda had bald spots and sorta thick, but the 2nd coat as perfect! Also,  this manicure lasted 4 days...woo hoo!!!!

Of course I topped this one with 1 coat of OPI Top Coat and then 1 coat ofSeche Vite. :)

Gorgeous, bright periwinkle blue with great shimmer .  I actually bought the 2nd bottle to swap, but my mom saw it and immediately grabbed it, as if it was a long lost child...oye vay!




Pin It!

This color has quickly made it's way to one of my favorite np colors of all time. I've worn it 3 times in the past month which is unheard of for me! It's a gorgeous blue! Enjoy your days off!

This looks great and it's awesome you're able to take some time without being sick. We just need to handle our business sometimes and most times the weekend doesn't cut it. Have a great few day... :)
