Nail Files - Head Mistress

Sep 28, 2012

 
A few weeks ago I won Kelly's AMAZING nail polish giveaway and I was super excited to try out one of the colors already! I chose Essie's Head Mistress from the Fall 2012 Stylenomics Mini Four Pack.
 
Cute huh?
 
 
Ignore the nasty skin around my nails please - I've been a little stressed at work which makes me pick-y!

The left picture was taken outside right after I painted them and the one on the right was taken inside. The color looks MUCH darker inside but I love it either way. I think I'll be wearing this color a lot this Fall and Winter!
 
Also included in my giveaway winnings was a Seche Vite top coat which I was soooo excited to finally try! Needless to say, it has not dissapointed me yet. That right picture was 4 days later and all that had chipped was my thumb nail. Not bad!
 
In other news....
If you're participating in Ashlee and I's Fall Swap, Monday is the deadline for sending out your partner's package! We'll link up and show off the goodies (ha!) on Oct. 11th. My partner Allie and I have already sent ours out and I cannot wait to share what she got me - she went totally overboard!!
 
In mommy news... 
Violet is 7 months old today!!! This shiz is going by way too fast and I pretty much have to keep myself from breaking out the ugly cry when I think about it. Girlfriend is all over the place and only wants to flip to her tummy now and wiggle around - I'm pretty nervous about crawling coming soon! She can't even sit still long enough for a picture anymore. See? 
I just love her face towards the end when she realized it was actually HER on camera :)

 Happy Friday, y'all!

You need to add that you went overboard as well my dear! I'm SO excited about my goodies and can't wait to try them all out!! Love the Head Mistress color. Doesn't it make you think about Mrs. Robinson from 50 Shades? Tiffany @ Austin Family Diary and I think so :)

I love the colors Essie has, just wish they weren't so pricey! It is good nail polish though I must say.

Awesome color! I sent out my swap package this morning! I am so excited! I might have gone somewhat overboard too but that just makes it more fun, right?

Love the photos!!!!

Faith said...

Christina said...

Oooh, I want a mini 4 pack! Fun! I love that top coat too. It’s crazy thick, but does the job! You and V are so cute!

Katie said...

What a difference being inside and outside makes!

Mrs. W. said...

LOVE that color.

Sweet V is 7 months! Aaaaah! I hear ya about the mobility - we have a wiggle-worm over here too! I'm just going to pretend they're not REALLY getting older, okay?

Sara said...

Pretty red color!!
Can't wait to get my swap package an link up.
Just wait until V makes goofy faces for the camera. Enjoy the wiggles, and when she starts crawling prepare your house for walking! As in anything she can reach goes higher. :)

what a beautiful red! happy weekend!

Suze said...

That color is beautiful!

I cannot even believe that V has been here for seven months! She is growing up so cute and fast.

I'm sorry I didn't go for one of your guest spots! I wasn't around much this week and slacked on my blog reading. Hope you have a wonderful trip. I imagine it will be sooo hard to leave Violet though. I have to take my students on a trip this summer and I can't stand thinking about leaving the baby. :( Anyway, hope it is good and you are able to have fun and that it goes by quickly :)

Love that color - such a rich red :)
Violet is too cute! I've been having baby fever realllllly bad lately. I think mostly because my oldest started school this year and my youngest will start next year and I"m going through that daytime empty nest syndrome early haha
