NOTD: Formidable by MAC

Posted on: November 20, 2013

Formidable by MAC is a purple to green duo-chrome nail polish that I really like. As most of you know the only MAC nail polish I own is Russian Red thank you Indie for that one, and Archie’s girls Betty for obvious reasons. It’s not that I dis-like MAC I just have an issue with availability in my tiny town in Idaho. The formula for Formidable was a bit on the thin side. It’s also one of those polishes that the first coat looks like crap. But be patient, the second coat is when it all comes together.

I actually wore this a few days because I love a good duo-chrome. The perfect polish for me would be a lovely lavender that has a pink and bright, almost lime green duo-chrome. Just picture it, wouldn’t That be beautiful? I think it would. Anyway, I digress, the formula, the bottle the brush everything was perfect. I bought mine at Nordstrom and I think I paid $17. But I like it and plan on wearing all this fall and winter.
If you are sick of wedding pics, sorry here’s a couple more. I believe they were taken by the photographer but not entirely sure.

I’m so proud of my kids I could burst, and oh by the way no tears from me on the big day, so yay for that. I’m digressing again, I’m very proud of Drew, Jilly and of course my girl Ashley but I’m also very proud of their friends they’ve chosen to be parts of their lives. My kids have the best people as friends and I could not be more proud of them all.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

It’s the best right? That’s the same color I painted my dining room, that cracked me up when I realized I’d done that. It wasn’t on purpose. 🙂

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
