ORLY Blushing Bud, Lippmann Constant Craving - Day 8 of 14 Days of February Pinks

Today is the 8th day of our 14 Days of February Pinks - yippee!

But 'snow news' first.  I am TOTALLY snowed in.  According to the snowplow map, every single street around us has been plowed and most have been salted also, and hey, look, ours says it was too... But it wasn't!  We're trapped back here with a ton of snow blocking our only way out!  Apparently there was a mix-up and our street was marked as plowed when it wasn't - so no one plowed it.  Some diligent neighbor (certainly not apathetic old me) called and the county said they would get to it by tonight or Tuesday morning.  Hmm.  My neighbors are all losing it - people are slowly tunneling through the streets with shovels and snowblowers.  People in SUITS!  They're nuts.  But it really is quite an odd feeling being snowed in when the rest of the state has been freed.  I liked this snowstorm a lot better when I knew we were ALL homebound - not just my little street.  But enough 'poor me'-ing, we'll be freed from these snowy depths soon enough and we'll all have to go back to work - and then we'll be ba-humbugging about not being stuck in the snow!

So, a happy cheerful color for this kind-of snow day:

ORLY Blushing Bud with Lippmann Constant Craving

I really love this mani :)  I painted my nails with three coats of ORLY Blushing Bud and then used Nailene's french mani guides to shape the french tips.  I painted my tips with one coat of Lippman Constant Craving (which dried super fast).  Pink and pink are the perfect Valentine's Day combo :)

A little later today I have some very different nails to show you... although they are pink too ;)
Check back this afternoon to see!

Pretty Valentine's mani. After the 14th, I am going to be so sick of pink, but not yet.

Super cute! I'm looking for a very barbie pink...I don't know why cause I kinda hate pink, but I think that Constant Craving may be what I'm looking for!

You're snowed in but no snow at winter olympics? Boo to the weather. But that's what's good about us 'creatives' -- we can always create something to brighten our day. That mani sure brightened mine. Thanks, Brooke!
