One Great Dad + Green Grape.

Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there!
Especially to my dad :)
He is such a great and loving father and always worked hard to provide for our family
while I was growing up. 
I am lucky.

This is a photo of my dad and I when my mom and him came down to Texas to help my husband and I move back to Washington. A great example of how my Dad is always willing to help out.

Somewhere in sunny California, on one of our many coffee breaks. <3 you Dad!

Green Grape.

I never paint my nails. Ever.
 I generally don't see what the point is in spending all that time applying coat after coat,
just to have your pretty new polish chip the next time you go to use your hands.
BUT lately, I have been feeling the urge to doll up my nails with a pretty pastel-ish color.

Sooo yesterday I picked up Gargantuan Green Grape by OPI. While looking at the enormous and somewhat overwhelming selection of colors, I was instantly drawn to this unusual green hue.

I also picked up a pretty light pink by OPI called Got a Date To-Knight. 
I love OPI's creative names of their colors.

What is your current favorite nail polish color? 



  1. Ooh! that's a pretty color. Have you tried gel manicures or Shellac? You have to do them at the salon, but they last until your nails grow out, and don't chip! After getting those, I can't bother to paint my own nails anymore. Just not worth the time painting and then having them chip the very next day :(

  2. I haven't tried it, but have heard a little about them! Thanks for the info/suggestion...I will need to try that out :D

  3. Lizzie, I love this color! I might have to pick a bottle up. My signature shade is Atomic Orange by Opi. I have been wearing it on my toes for about two years now. I did it once for an outfit and by the second day was completely obsessed with the color and have been wearing it ever since. I should definitely be tired of it by now...

  4. Glad you love it :D I love discovering new colors by OPI, they have the best!

    Atomic Orange is definitley a great color, don't blame you for soley wearing that one! haha

  5. i'm loving this color! i used to feel the same way about painting my nails but now i'm hooked. you should try rimmel's 60 second drying nail polish. i just picked up a ridiculous neon pink (i think its called stop traffic).
