My daughter told me about this drugstore nail polish from Sally Hansen.
It's a wonderful product: "Sally Hansen COMPLETE SALON MANICURE" goes on so smooth, the brush I LOVE and the finish is gorgeous.
ALL IN ONE is the best! No fooling with a base coat, top coat and a couple layers of color in between.
I haven't yet taken the polish off, so I have no idea if not using a separate base coat will make my nail bed a wonky color or not, will try to report back to you.
I don't recommend something unless I REALLY, really like it and this meets that threshold.
I am pretty sure it was under $7 at Walgreen or maybe it was Kroger. The colors are gorgeous
I'm not part of the "black Friday" madness. Can't handle it. I don't think there is ANYTHING I need that bad. I actually like to stay home and relax, and eat fruit salad and pumpkin pie for breakfast with my coffee, have turkey and rice soup for lunch and then best of all: enjoy all day long the thought that I DON'T have to think about what's for dinner...and I don't have to even make it, it's already done! LOL!
It's hard sometimes to shoot a bad picture with perfect conditions: fog and frost. Come along as I travel the back roads near our home and enjoy some of the scenery that I found. I will have to take several days, as I shot for almost two hours, until the sun burned off the fog and erased the ethereal backdrop and made it all seem ordinary again.
What is so wonderful about shooting in the fog and the results from it are that you realize how different the light is, depending on which direction you aim. This shot is heading into the sunrise...warmer light.
And then shooting away from the sun....less light and more fog, less color and more lonely...
But I should hush up now and just let you enjoy the beauty and magic that is an ordinary late fall morning...
Enjoy what God put here to embellish what he saw fit to create ...
And take a minute to see what a hard-working farmer puts here too...
Have a wonderful day...and look for the magic that sometimes will come to what you might think is just an ordinary place... It's what makes for a special feeling: just being alone with the surroundings that are ordinary in a magical way.
This paper-over-board picture book biography approaches the holiday from an evangelical point of view. Beginning with Squanto's kidnapping, at age 12, by the Spanish from his Patuxet village in 1608, Metaxas (The Birthday ABC) follows him to M laga, Spain. His friends are sold into slavery, "but God had another plan for Squanto." Monks purchase Squanto and teach him their beliefs, then entrust him to a kind man in London until he can find passage back to America. Finally, in 1618, he arrives home, only to find his village wiped out by disease. The discovery tests Squanto's faith but does not destroy it ("As he pondered the great sorrow in his heart, he talked to God").
When Squanto comes to the aid of starving English newcomers, Governor Bradford predicts the hero's role: "Perhaps God has sent you to be our Joseph." In the end, Bradford and Squanto both give thanks to God for using Squanto in "such a way that would bless the whole world for centuries to come." Of all the offerings this season, this account comes closest to describing the holiday's religious roots and historical beginnings, even though many may argue with the book's politics and/or theology. Stirnweis's portraits tend to be stiff and inconsistent, but his realistic renderings of M laga and London architecture are atmospheric. The culminating illustration portrays Squanto in a pose like Christ on the Mount. Ages 5-10. (Aug.)
