I live in Texas. And the weather down here is pretty confusing.

Such as it being cold for two days, then warm the next two days, then cold again the next three days. It's just a vicious fluctuating weather cycle. Which is how I got my inspiration for my nails! In honor of the cold weather.

NOW, before anyone says, "But Texas is one of the warmest states-" and something along the lines of trying to live up North where the real cold is... No. Just no. I had a friend at work explain to me that the cold from up North is dry. In Texas, we've always got wind chills. 9 times out of 10 we do. There was a day or two with dry cold.. It was wonderful.


Side note: I don't like to use dotting tools when I'm using my Stripe Rites because the Stripe Rites dry so incredibly fast while the dots are still wet and smudge when I drag top coat over them. So I dotted with my Stripe Rite.

Alsoooooooooo.... My thumb nail is shorter than the others because it broke two weeks or so ago.. She's making a slow recovery. What's even sadder though is that my other thumb nail is also broken (on both sides even) and as well as my dominant hand's ring finger nail. Yup. Right under that little penguin is a split. ;(

For this mani I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze 'Kinetic Candy'
  • Zoya 'Maisie'
  • Stripe Rite: White, Black, Orange
  • Seche` Vite

  1. Thank you for sharing this post. Nice nails! You make a good point about the fickle weather. One day it is very hot, the next really cold. That is why it is important to have both your heating and ac systems working in tip top shape. You never know which one you are going to need each day.
