Today I painted my moms nails the prettiest red. It is Ruby Stilettos from Sally Hansen. It is so sparkle-y, it is gorgeous! As you all know, my mom has macular degeneration along with glaucoma, and I think because she can’t see very well she is loving these bright colors. The brighter the better.

I’m loving this one too.

I painted my nails with Revlon Teak Rose and Demure in a half and half manicure. So many of you have asked me about this, I hope this picture will help show how it is done.

I always start with my right hand and paint my pinky and ring finger color A, in this case Teak Rose. Then I paint color A on my left hand on the middle, pointer and thumb. Then with color B (Demure) I do the opposite. Paint my left hand pinky and ring finger with color B, then on my right hand paint color B on my middle, pointer and thumb. Doing a half and half, or some people call it a reverse, you paint 5 fingers one color and the other 5 a different color. The result is an opposite color for each finger. In other words, the pointer fingers will each have a different color, the thumbs will be different, etc…


Sometimes I use contrasting colors, like today and some days I use very similar colors like this one with Russian Red from MAC and Rosa Rosa from Estée Lauder.





Usually I end up with a half and half because I can’t decide which color I want to wear that day. I’ve never seen anyone do it before. Now every once in a while I see someone else with it and it makes me smile! I saw a half and half today on a FaceBook ad. I was really tickled to see it, I guess that’s what compelled me to do this one today. And, knowing me, tomorrow will be something else! Maybe not!
Thanks for stopping by 💅
