Two Things.

Here's the shirt, with buttons but before washing out the markings - mostly for the sake of putting it on my 2013 FO page!  Nothing to add, except that Hubby came home right after I finished sewing on the last button and immediately tried it on with no prompting from me!  Such a good boy!


And for fun, here are a couple pics of a mani I did the other day and really liked.  The base is Misa Baby I Love You, and the tips are Zoya Ziv.  I really like how Ziv worked on the tips - it's slightly sheer and very sparkly, and I think it's a different look from the chrome polish I would normally use for this sort of thing.



Adding these tips extended my mani by a couple of days!  But I've found that the Misa polishes wear pretty well on their own as well.  I think this one is my perfect coral polish.

  1. You've got your hubby well trained to try his shirt on without prompting!
    Love that coral nail polish, it looks like the exact shade I've been searching for.

    1. He is well trained! I always tell him his position is secure because I don't want to take the time and energy to train somebody new ;-)

    1. Yes, I can imagine with your work it's better to go au naturale! When I was still teaching, the kids used to go crazy for all the different colors I wore!
