All that glitters...

 All that glitters is AMAZING!  While most people are getting reds and pink manis for Vday I'm still stuck on this Graphite color by Chanel.  Thanks to Odyssey who turned me on to this hue.  I just love it.  It reminds me of glittery sands and I'm always up for that essence.  I truly find this color very beachy.  It might be, growing up in LA, my many trips to Vegas or me getting a little older but sparkly, glittery items done in a tasteful way rock my world.
Choosing a nail hue is often challenging, I wish I could change colors like I change shoes.  But luckily this color goes with everything and it looks so luxurious.  Now if only I could do something about my dishpan hands.

If you haven't gotten a mani in a while, I highly recommend you treat yourself and schedule one.  I felt so civilized and renewed from mine.   And believe it or not little things like a mani can lift your spirits and make you stand taller.  I know it sounds silly but it did for me.
What nail hues are striking your fancy?

I'm so into sparkles too lately!! I just bought the essie gold ones and am dreaming of painting them over an aqua layer!

Love your sparkles by the pool - living vicariously through you as I freeze my tush off here in CT!

I tried a dark color on my toes and it's so fun..

I agree mani's and pedi's do make one feel civilized however dishpan hands live on here too.

I like the way it looks different in the bottle as opposed to on your fingertips. Very interesting!

Oh, that is a pretty color, and yes, it reminds me of the beach too. I love to use blues for my toenails. I love these pictures, and I can tell the weather was nice. :)

ps. I thought of you on Friday, we went to a cute little town near us. You may have seen my post already. It just reminded me of all the fun stuff in Texas, and I hope you get to see it all!

Have a great week!

I am doing sparkly nails till spring.
I need a pick me up.
I went home for lunch and think I left my garage door up so my dad went to check for me.
My mom and I plan to take a trip to South Padre when the weather is warm enough to sit on the beach.

I agree you have to treat yourself every once in awhile, got my pedi scheduled for my b-day in march. I love the nail color! I'm ready for bright sparkly polishes I'm putting the dark ones away til next fall :-)

well, obviously this color strikes my fancy, too! thanks a bunch for the mention, sealaura!
my other favorite is chanel's black satin, as you know. steel is also great, almost black but not quite. rouge noir is divine, too. (formerly vamp, introduced in 1994 - which is now a totally different color- confusing, no? unfortunately, rouge noir is no longer available in the US.)

by the way, graphite is utterly gorgeous on you. dish-pan hands, i think not! :)

I wouldn't think of that colour but it looks great. I usually go for colours that blend in with my skin, I hate my hands and don''t want to draw too much attention to them! Same with rings, keep them fairly bland

Happy Valentine's Day x
