While I might choose to abstain from December 26th’s annual glut of post-holiday consumerism (I would sooner staple my head to the carpet than go near anything retail-oriented today) I can always appreciate a day off, in this case a day off from the holidays. Because no matter what you choose to celebrate, holidays, period, are just hard work, yeah? So much prep and worry and planning and then it’s over in a flash.
But I actually had a very nice holiday – a super fun reunion with old friends, lots of visits with an even older friend (and her new plus one), a wicked cool early morning screening of Star Wars courtesy of Mr. Finger Candy’s company, an obscenely large (and old school) fresh turkey for Christmas dinner, also thanks to the Mr.’s company, a couple of festive lunches (and one Swiss Chalet Festive Dinner) with my parents, a very nice holiday lunch with my husband’s family here in our home, and a pretty spectacular Christmas Day supper – and all of it capped off, literally, with this fly turkey hat, which represents the best $20 I think I’ve ever spent.
Anyhoodle, these nails are pretty and sparkly in a fun and festive way that suggests that the holiday season is not quite over and done with – and yet another glittery version of the “blended tree in a bottle” look that I’m so very fond of. Here I used two coats of Whimsical Ideas by Pam’s Secret Garden over Enchanted Polish’s mystery pick for November 2015. Although that’s not exactly a secret OR a mystery any more, I suppose!
