My, my, it's great to be blogging again. We had some horrible storms in Minnesota on Thursday night and lost power until Saturday afternoon. Call me high maintenance, but I can't handle life without water, air conditioning, lights, internet, and tv. I have a whole new understanding for what people went through, and are still going through, in Oklahoma and other cities that have experienced damaging storms...at least I still have my house. As I was cleaning the yard on Friday, I kept thinking about how lucky I was to be only cleaning up sticks and leaves, and that my family was safe.
As I was getting my yard and house back in order on Saturday, my two friends Liesl and Emily were patiently waiting for me to paint my nails. We planned a triple post a week ago based on one of Liesl's socks. Liesl posted a horrific ;) knee injury on her FB page...I still can't really see the injury in the photo and think she was just looking for attention...ha. The most exciting part of the photo was the totally awesome sock she was wearing. I immediately thought about the polishes I had for each color of the sock and asked if they would like to do a sock-inspired manicure. Obviously they said yes, so here is mine.
Below is a picture of the infamous knee and sock. Liesl requested that we not lead off our post with a picture of her knee, but I'm sure she wouldn't mind if you clicked the "Pin It" button in the lower right hand corner ;)
Below are the colors I used. I was surprised to grab Julep Alma again! I didn't think I would use her for a while, if ever...but the lucky girl made the cut.
I've been loving the mismatched nails lately and decided to throw a glitter in the mix. I haven't used Butter London Rosie Lee for quite a while and I think I need to add some thinner...it is getting pretty goopy. If you are looking for an opaque pink glitter, Rosie Lee is a winner in my book!
I enjoyed working with Liesl and Emily on this triple post and I hope to find more inspiration to do it again in the future. Let's just hope Emily doesn't bruise her butt and decide to show us...unless she has some cute bloomers ;)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
