What’s on the Nails –Jelly sandwich backwards French mani! Julep Grace topped with Julep Camille and OPI Black Onyx for the tips. Nailtek II and Juelp Freedom, as always.

Book talk – Theme for this book talk: what book inspires you. Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I know this book got some flack in regards to how it deals with depression and life crises, etc. But it helped me many times when my life was starting to feel like it was either falling or standing still. It gave me perspective that others could not.

My wish List – Purple Goddess designs – fun stitchmarkers, gorgeous yarns, and delicious treats! Want to eat them off the screen.  And, seriously, self-striping yarn called bacon strips? Please!!!! And anything Doctor Who is fabulous (Bigger on the Inside). And then electric cupcake. That is all.

Vivid Lacquers: Love the Spppaaaaccccceee one. Also the theoretical line.

TheLadyVarnishes: Seriously, Jane Austen on nails? I’m so there.  (The patient suiter, the reluctant dancer, etc.)

The Parade of the Guilty Pleasures – Only two marchers this week: 1. Julep Mystery Spring box and 2. WOLLMEISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
