Snow Day Activities | Holiday Nails & Soup

With the weather so icy and chilly here, it's not too comfortable for this Texan girl to be out-and-about like I'm use to. So to ward off possible cabin fever, I made one of my favorite winter snacks :

Campbell's Tomato Soup with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

I love to eat it with a school of goldfish crackers :


 
I also had some fun with nail polish and got a little festive for the upcoming holidays :
BLING BLING!

I layered 2 sparkly polishes - 1 called Gold Coin by Revlon with tiny glitter specks, and 1 called Gold Gems by Milani with larger glitter specks. It's definitely eye-catching.


Glitter polishes are also fab to use as just a nail tip:
Paint the whole nail emerald green or ruby red for Christmas, then paint the tip of the nail with a heavy silver or gold glitter polish (like an upgraded French manicure). Voila!

Of course, I'm no nail guru. But for the more ambitious, here are a few how-to videos on holiday nail art from some of my favorite nail art experts on YouTube:
