Just Another Manic(ure) Monday: Sephora OPI ‘Mash-Up’

What a beautiful Monday! I think spring has finally arrived although it feels a bit more like summer – I am ok with Winter bouncing right into Summer, provided it does not bounce back to Winter any time soon OR it would be ideal if Winter and Summer mashed up into – oh I don’t know – Spring?  Anyways, this week’s colour is an oldie but a goodie, but sadly it isn’t available in stores anymore (sorry – I didn’t realize that until I started writing this post). So what colour have I decided on this week? It’s Sephora OPI’s ‘Mash-Up’ which was part of their Glee collection way back when, hence the lack of availability now. In honour of ‘Mash-Up’, I am going with one of my favorite Glee mash-ups of all time – Survivor/I Will Survive – as my musical song styling for this lovely Mani Monday.

Just Another Manic(ure) Monday: NARS ‘Schiap’

Happy Monday? Spring has been so on and off that I can’t figure out if it’s actually here or not, but that’s not going stop me from transitioning out of my winter style. For instance, I’ve traded in my boots for flats but my concession to cooler temperatures is that I am wearing socks with my flats (I hate socks) and I am moving towards brighter colours with my nail polish, which is of course why this week’s Mani Monday is NARS’ Schiap. This colour is appropriately bright and bubble-gummy and makes me think of the uber-catchy song Barbie Girl by Aqua – so here’s the earworm of the week?

Just Another Manic(ure) Monday: Deborah Lippmann ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’

Happy Monday! It’s been a long week but I am definitely looking towards my long weekend trip down to visit friends in Vancouver, where I may take advantage and be a “Good Girl Gone Bad”. Ok that was a bit cheesy and will be extremely doubtful but I just had to try and make it work for this week’s Mani Monday, which is Deborah Lippmann’s (you got it) ‘Good Girl Gone Bad‘ from the Holiday 2011 collection. And of course, there is a musical song styling associated with this name and for once, it’s even an exact match! Nothing like some Rhianna to kick off your Monday right?

Just Another Manic(ure) Monday: Sephora OPI ‘Leaf Him at the Altar’

Yay Monday! *sigh* It’s the Monday after a time change and boy do I miss that hour right about now… but it’s ok because daylight savings time is a sign of Spring and to celebrate that, I’m going green. Today’s Mani Monday belongs to Sephora by OPI’s ‘Leaf Him at the Altar’. I love this name so much! It always reminds me of the movie ‘Runaway Bride’ with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts – albeit not the best movie but I watched it anyways. And as usual, I’ve done the youtubing in order to help refresh your memory on that film.

Just Another Manic(ure) Monday: Butter London ‘All Hail the Queen’

In an effort to force my procrastinating self onto a more regular blogging schedule, I’ve decided to try bi-weekly mani Monday posts. Or as I like to call it – Just Another Manic(ure) Monday… I probably just dated myself with that bit of pop culture reference but that’s the way I roll? Plus I think the title is pretty apt considering how many mani Monday posts are there on the interwebz. For those who haven’t heard the glory of The Bangles’ ‘Manic Monday’ – I have saved you the trouble of youtubing it yourself:
