Christmas Nails – The Saga Continues…

This is my 3rd set of nails since Thanksgiving Day, and probably my last until after Christmas unless some disaster such as a broken nail should happen. I would like to dedicate this set to my UK friend, Rachel Edwards, of Glam Glam Nails, since she sent me the BarryM polish that I've used, plus I 'borrowed' her ...

Product Review: Blaze UV Color Changing Nail Polish

Today's test and review is Blaze™ Color Changing Nail Polish, using Pulsating Blue (indoor color) to Festive Green (outdoor color). I'm not sure if this really fits into my Christmas theme, but it is pretty festive, so what the heck. And besides, I just couldn't wait to try my new polish by Solar Active International®. I ordered ...

Christmas Nails, 2011 – First set

As I begin writing, it's Thanksgiving Day in the United States, and since Santa Claus showed up at the end of Macy's Parade, we get to have a Christmas this year! Most of you know that Joannie will not hang one ornament, sing one carol, or even think about decking any halls until the big guy ...

Product Review: Instant Nail Effects by BarryM

First, I want to thank my good friend from the UK, Rachel Edwards, for the chance to try these products. She sent me a nice assortment of polishes, nail gems, and decals that I'll be experimenting with for months to come. Anyone in Wales needs to contact Rachel for a manicure, pedicure, or spray on ...

Halloween Nails; Until I get them right!

Well, I just wasn't happy with how my nails came out, so I re did them with a different technique. Actually it is fairly simple. Base color is orange, with China Glaze black crackle on top, and red french tips just to be different.

Halloween Nails; The Next Generation

Here it is, my favorite holiday again! I've gone through several different ideas for my nails this year, and finally decided to try something new and a little out of my comfort zone. How else do we learn? Step 1: First removed all my old polish. Don't take that for granted, I've seen people just paint ...

Awesome New Nails!

Okay, I don't like to blow my own horn all the time, but here goes. Thanks to a new polish product from China Glaze, (although I see Sally Hansen has the same thing or close to it) I've really gone above and beyond what I ever thought I'd get this side of a really expensive ...

Gun Ownership

I own guns. I learned to shoot before I could read, and I could disassemble, clean, and reassemble my rifle before I learned to ride a bike. I think everyone should learn about gun safety, whether they choose to own one or not, as the biggest cause of accidental shooting is from people that don't know ...

He said, She said.

A conversation in the car. The following is true. You can't make this stuff up: Dwight: Did you bring the shopping list? Joannie: No, I forgot it. Dwight: Nevermind, we'll be alright. Joannie: Do you have the clicker to open the gate? Dwight: Arrg. No. Joannie: That's alright, I've got mine. Boy, you forgot one thing, I forgot the other. What ...

New Nail Color for 2011!

After much soul-searching agony, I've decided on a new color for 2011. It is China Glaze's "Dorothy Who?" from their 'Wizard of Ohh Ahz' collection. Looking at the picture, hopefully you can see that it has a very fine glitter diffused in the lacquer. What you can't tell is the lacquer itself is a very translucent blue, almost a ...
