Just a Little Dangerous Nail Polish & a Day in Augusta

Last weekend I had an opportunity to go to Augusta on business. I was delighted to go because one of my college friends lives there. I spent Friday night at her place and painted my nails a dark purple called Just A Little Dangerous from Sephora by OPI from her nail collection. It is a dark purple creme, and it was very smooth.The wear time is good too. Unfortunately, Sephora and OPI have parted ways, but you can still find bottles of Sephora by OPI at TJ Maxx sometimes. 

While I was in Augusta, I had lunch at the fabulous Boll Weevil. This cute hole-in-the-wall is known for their generously-proportioned cake, but I thought their fresh salad was delightful as well.

The Boll Weevil is conveniently located near the Augusta Riverwalk. Since it was a perfect spring day, I popped some allergy medicine and took a nice stroll. The pollen there was kicked up into mini-tornadoes by the wind, but I bravely soldiered through my walk with the help of my friends, the bees. 

Gorgeous, right? I also did a little shopping. I accidentally spent too much at Ulta. I bought 3 lipsticks/glosses despite the fact that I have enough lippies to last me until I retire. I guess it’s like buying shoes. Shoes are easier to buy than pants, so shoe-hoarding happens. Anyway, I’ll share my lippie haul at a later date. Have you ever been to Augusta? What did you do this weekend? Let me know in the comments.

Mani Monday: New Year, New Nails

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that you are having a great start to 2016. Although my husband is sick and I am behind on pretty much everything (a small price to pay for an extra long Christmas vacay), we are loving 2016. 2015 was a good year for us, but we have some tricks up our sleeves to make 2016 even better. 😉

If you have read my blog before, then you know that I am glitter obsessed. I am sorry to show you a polish that is discontinued, but I had to wear it because it is pretty much a New Year’s party in a bottle. This is Soho Street by Nails Inc. I’ve never been to Soho (London), but I now have larger than life expectations of it due to this color. Soho street is not a full coverage glitter polish. However, if I did a couple more coats (shown above is two coats), it might get there.

(Side note: you may remember this beautiful full coverage green glitter polish also by Nails Inc. from my St. Paddy’s mani. Why are these colors discontinued, Nails Inc.? WHY?!)

What’s your New Year’s mani look like? Are you ready for 2016? (Full disclosure: some of my calendars haven’t even been shipped yet! Ahh!)
