After months on hiatus, I'm finally back with a new post in the blog, The past few months have been extremely busy. A new demanding position at work, and with kids home during the summer months, left me with very little time for myself. All work and no play has made me a not-so fun person. I missed sharing my nail polish obsession, so I hope to be back and posting more regularly. Now, back to nail business...
While I may have been away from my blog for months, it certainly did not hinder me from acquiring new additions to my collection. A new brand for me was Cult Nails. Maria, founder and creator, released a very special collection this past July. Coco's Untamed Collection was created by Maria's, then not-quite thirteen year-old daughter, Coco. The collection consists of five beautiful colors. Being that I am a purple lover, Spontaneous immediately jumped out at me.

It's Friday Night! What's the perfect nail color to kick-off my weekend? Maisie Shine Friday Night, of course!
I have to first apologize for showing you a color that is currently not available. But seriously, how gorgeous is this color? How can I possibly not share? Here's a closer look at this beauty in the bottle...

Happy 4th of July everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying the day. Our morning started off with going over to city hall to see the 4th of July parade; followed by a nice brunch out. We got back home and got all the prep done for the BBQ. While my hubby is manning the grill, I thought I come by with a quick post.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I'm so sad it's almost over, but I look forward for a short work week with 4th of July coming up in a few days for us in the US. I spent all of Saturday working in the yard,planting and trimming back over-grown trees and bushes, and cleaning out our patio. Feeling a little achy (aging is so cruel), operation patio and yard clean up continues today. I am taking a bit of a break right now to do a quick post.
Even though my nails are in need of some TLC right now, which will be taken care later this evening, I have a recent mani to share.

The boldest and brightest blue nail polish I own. This is Electric Blue, one of five colors from Dior's limited edition collection, inspired by Anselm Reyle, a German contemporary artist.
Two years ago, I would have shyed away from this color. It was much too bright, and perhaps a little too shocking for me to wear. However, today it's a totally different story. I am quite a bit more daring when it comes to nail color. I don't mind my nails making an entrance before I do.

Deciding on what I was going to wear on my nails for Memorial Day was easy. My newly acquired bottle of Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Pride was the obvious choice. Plus it was sitting there, on top of my computer desk, just screaming to be worn.
Pride is described "a patriotic mixture of red, white and blue glitters in various shapes and sizes, topped off with a hearty dose of star shaped glitter." This is one of seven limited edition glitter shades, from the summer collection, Seven Deadly Sins. I am proud, not ashamed to say, I have acquired six out of the seven in the collection.

Another newly discovered indie brand I'm just trying for the first time. I picked up 3 colors from the Lush Lacquer store on Etsy. Karin and Lexi are the owners of the Lush Lacquer, a mother and daughter "best friend" duo that creates fabulous glitter combination nail polish. How wonderful is that?!
Party Rockin' immediately caught my eyes as I quickly tore into my package. I knew it was going to be a winner when I first ordered it, but seeing this in person was beyond amazing. Just wow! I could not wait to wear this one. My mind immediately begin surveying the colors I could pair this with. So many options and I was at a loss for a color. But after a couple of days of consideration, I decided to pair it with another newly arrival color.
