So you would think that I love getting my nails done… Turns out, I could do without. I have maybe been twice in my life, and one was for my wedding. Sure a little hand rub feels nice but I mean $20, $30 for nail polish that I will literally scratch off in two seconds. NO THANK YOU!
But a girls got to have a little color on her nails. I use my hands a lot! For lots of things that would make wearing nail polish pretty much impossible. Passing the nail aisle row at Target in the beginning of the summer I spotted this great blue color. I picked it out just based off the color. At home I realized it was a Miracle Gel nail polish by Sally Hansen. As we know gel nail polish should stay for two weeks. So I was intrigued to see if this really would work, without the lights of the fancy nail salon, without the special treatment.
So I followed the directions, two coats and then a clear top coat. Recently I have been restoring some mid century chairs. Grinding, sanding, wet sanding, polishing, stains, etc. and so forth. I thought this would totally chip my nails. Guess what? It didn’t! I have had this nail polish on for more than two weeks and it has stayed pretty much perfect.
I have literally been wearing this color all summer long because I am so impressed with this stuff. I think it’s time to get yourself over to target and pick yourself out some Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Nail Polish. You won’t be disappointed.
In Southern California we are bordered on one side with the great Pacific Ocean and on the other, desert. I don’t think I really thought too much about the desert when I was young. I didn’t hate it, I didn’t love it. I just didn’t get it yet.

Being an adult, I’ve explored a little and I’ve come to fall in love with vast dry land. I gaze on the subtle mountain outlines, the shades of color within the layers sand, marvel at the desert plants.

Today I’m rounding up a perfect desert outfit. When I’m in the desert I think about the types of fabric I am wearing, what’s going to make me stay the most cool and dry.
This light weight jumpsuit with a perfect desert rose to keep your arms out of the sun is a great one to keep you cool and the sun off of you! A straw hat lets in the wind and cools you down, pair it all with the desert turquoise jewelry and I think you call that an outfit!
