This mani was inspired by a recent blizzard that we had a few days ago.  The swirls look like the wind as it was twisting and turning and carrying the snow along with it.  I would have preferred to use snowflake stickers rather than stars but, I didn’t have any.  So the stars had to do.

Thank you KarenD!

A BIG thank you to KarenD from for the following award.  She is a sweetie and I just LOVE her blog.  I "visit" her at her blog almost every day and was so touched to get this from her.

Playoffs - Round Two - Happy Birthday Myron Cope! GO STEELERS!!!

Today is Myron Cope’s Birthday.  If you’re not from Pittsburgh, you may not know who that is.  If you are from the ‘burgh, you know that the name Myron Cope and Pittsburgh go hand in hand.  He is no longer with us, but he left the Steelers and the city of Pittsburgh with a great gift... his Terrible Towel.  So in honor of Myron, his Terrible Towel and the Steelers round 2 playoff game today, I did this Mani.  GO STEELERS!!!

Game Day - Playoffs!!! GO STEELERS!!!

I don’t know what it is about these rhinestones, but zoomed in they look really spaced out, awkward and a bit wonky.  It’s a shame because in real life this mani is a sparkleishous Steelerfest and I totally love it! 6 rhinestones per nail to represent our city of “Sixburgh!”  I’m sad that it didn’t translate well on camera.

Orly - Galixy Girl.  This color had been on my wish list since I first saw swatches of it on the blogs.  Thankfully, Santa left it for me!  My photo of it is pretty sad.  No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't capture the beautiful teal blue flash that this color has.  But, it's been swatched over a million times before so, I'm sure you've seen those amazing images of this color at one time or another.
