Black Friday

Hi there!

I decided to go very literal with today's manicure...

My nails painted with Sally Hansen - Black Diamonds.

I painted 2 coats to achieve what's pictured. It applied very easily, and I was surprised by its finish. In the bottle, it looks to be a black base with charcoal shimmer- that's how it looks in photographs as well... but in front of my face, I see holographic shimmer in addition to the charcoal/silver shimmer. It isn't enough to make you think "wow," but it's fun to look at :-)

So, if you didn't gather it by the title of this post, today is/was Black Friday where I live. While I surely don't agree with the fighting for parking spaces and good deals, I do like to participate in the tradition. It was always something to look forward to while I was growing up. My mom and I would wake up early to be at one of the nearby stores by 6:00am (back when 6:00am was early for stores to open). We'd find the items we wanted and then drive to another store for its opening. After that, we would always go out for pancakes :-)

This year, I went out with a friend of mine who had never experienced Black Friday shopping and its insanity. There was nothing I needed to purchase, but I wanted to go with her for the fun of it. It was surprisingly calm, and I ended up buying a sewing machine for myself. I didn't even know I wanted it until I saw it staring at me... but now that I have it, I don't know why I didn't get one sooner!

Do you have any Black Friday traditions? Did you go out shopping today?

Until next time...


  1. No Black Friday shopping for me! Haha! I LOVE your mani, though!

  2. Glad I wasn't the only one with a Black Friday mani! And yes, I did stand in line and shop for 6 hours and go to work 4 hours later, but I found some great presents!
