Diamond Drenched Nails & Stylish Straightened Hair
This morning, I decided to straighten my hair (I had slept on wet hair, & I didn't want to have bed-head). My four-year-old daughter woke up, caught me in action, and upon learning what I was doing, requested the same style for her own.
Here is the result of our first hot iron experience together.
My last manicure* was such a hit in the various places I've been this weekend that I felt a temporary inspiration to try it again.
* I'll try it again in the future and take photos to post if anyone is interested!
Tori wanted to share her BAB cat, Stripes, with my family. Thought I'd share her here. :o)
(Tori and her tap shoes. She dances to all her shows' intro songs.)
And there she is... STRIPES the dancing cat. In case you can't tell, the shirt is layered in sequins. She's a fancy tapping cat.
MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL...
The recent layering in her hair added a sweeping effect around her face. I love that.
This manicure really is quite stunning, but my 5 year old 6.0 pixel camera lacks what it takes to capture close-ups in focus, amazing color, depth and shimmer.
NYC's "Broadway Burgundy Frost" is a deep red with a slight shimmer.
