Whew! I Almost Didn't Make It!

Yep, that's right, I still had my Thanksgiving colors on!
4 days from Christmas! 
WoW but Wow !!
My personal best longest lasting mani!

I did use my sister's chicken feathers again this year like last. I just love them and think they coordinate so well with the Fall season. They are molted naturally of course.
I really need to try my Tilly and the Keets feathers in the Spring. They are Spring colors.

OK let's get down to brass tacks ~

The rich chocolate brown is Nirvana (949) by Sinful Colors.
For my accent nail I used Sand Tropez (668) by Esssie.
While still wet I placed the feather and
 lightly tapped it down in place.
I roughly snipped the extra feather off at the end of my nail, 
then trimmed closer and more evenly.

Once dry I topped with a clear coat which was kind of tricky.
The feather was going the opposite direction you would normally brush. I didn't want to go against it and "ruffle" feathers.
I ended up brushing the top coat on backwards
 just enough to cover the feathers.
Once that coat was dry I put on another top coat brushing the normal direction followed by Seche Vite.

Finally a few days ago I found some time to 
change out the Season!

That beautiful blue is Sturdy Sapphire (720) by Sally Hansen, topped with Strapless by Pure Ice which is a glitter nail polish.
One Snowflake is on my accent nail in white accented with silver glitter both by L.A. Colors Art Deco.

OK Christmas can go forth :)

Scatter Kindness #sktrkndns

Yep, we've jumped on the bandwagon too!

After all the world definitely needs more kindness!

I'm sure by now you've heard of "The Kindness Rock Project".
If not check it out here or Facebook.

Communities have sprung up all over creating their own side shoots of this amazing activity while conceiving their own names for their areas. 

But still keeping the basic goals in mind:

Inspire someone through a random act of kindness.
Recruit the finder to follow suit and inspire others through random acts of kindness.
Bring a smile to someones face, a word, phrase, drawing, picture can brighten someone's day.

Ours are spread from Merced CA to Petaluma, CA

and all over in between.

Be Kind 
you never know what another person is going through.
