Above and Below: Greta, our 3 year old German Shepherd rescue girl.
I hope you're all enjoying what's left of the weekend! We have sunny skies and temperatures in the 60's all weekend, so I'm not complaining. Black Radiance Licorice (found at Rite Aid and Walgreens) is my favorite black polish simply because it gives total coverage in just one coat. It's shown here with Pure Ice Dreamy over the top and I really love all of the colored sparkles that show up. I've found that many of the Pure Ice colors make better layering polishes than base colors, but I think that's true with a number of the inexpensive drug store brand sheer polishes. I updated the "Mini Bar" last night with a few mini reviews of some products I'm using and I also wanted to remind you of the NYX Cosmetics 50% off sale that ends May 15. They have some great nail polishes so if you're interested, click on their link in the "Tip Jar" column on the right side of the page. My vicious Shih Tsu dog bite is healing up and I thank you all for your well wishes in a speedy recovery for my finger (this is my often unseen right hand in the picture!). I wanted to share some pictures of one of my nicer, gentler dogs today. Greta has been with us going on 2 years now and was rescued from a shelter in Mount Vernon, IL. She was bred at just 1 year old and then dumped at the shelter when her puppies were 8 weeks old because her previous owners only wanted her long enough to have her puppies. It saddens me to think of how she felt being separated from her puppies, being just barely a puppy herself at the time. She is a bit high strung but a very sweet girl who tries so hard to please us. I'd like to think that we've made her as happy as she's made us.
