Tuesday Nailtique: The Accent Nail

I hope everyone is safe in the aftermath of Sandy.  If you’re one of the East Coaster’s stuck inside today here’s a quick and easy nail tutorial to keep you occupied.

You Need:
Clear Base + top coat
Solid nail polish, try maroon or oxblood
Accent nail polish in metallic or with glitter


  1. Paint base coat and paint 2 coats of solid color on all nails.  Let dry.
  2. Paint one accent nail on each hand.  I find the ring finger is best.  1 coat should be fine, this way the base color shows a little too.
  3. Paint top coat

Stay safe.  XX, Sheree

Wednesday Gourmet: Coffee French Toast

This weekend I dropped my pumpkin spice english muffin into my coffee mug.  Yes, the entire muffin fell into it.  And yes, it was a huge cup of coffee.  Since I try not to be too wasteful, I scooped out my english muffin and ate it and it actually tasted pretty good.  It made me think of coffee-flavored french toast.  Is there a recipe out there?  In my research, I only found a few.  I’ll have to do some testing with Jon this weekend 🙂
