Sincerely Yours

WOW its been FOREVER! I know I’ve been missing in action and to all of you who have been messaging me and wondering where I am, I’ll explain. I’ve been looking hard for work and nearly had a lead or two but they all fell through. I’ve decided that while I’m still a meteorologist, I’m also going to branch out into the creative side of advertising. I’ve really had to focus on searching for work and prioritizing my time so the blog fell onto the back burner. HOWEVER, I do have a design for your today!!!

 

You know how I get strange inspiration? I was browsing the clearance bins at Barnes N Noble and they had GORGEOUS stationary on sale. Unfortunately the ones for T and F were pink/purple which clearly sucks for me, so I just snapped pictures of the patterns I loved. Hence, today’s design:

For this design I used OPI Nail Envy as a base, with two coats of OPI Dating A Royal. The design itself includes (all OPI) Alpine Snow, Black Onyx, Golden Rules!, and What’s With the Cattitude?, topped off with a swipe of Seche Vite.

And since a little birdie told me you all like to see the inspiration:

Obviously not quite as detailed as the stationary but seriously, my nails are only so big! :)

 

So yeah, missed you all! I hope to post more regularly now because I’ve realized that I can’t stop doing my blog because I’m looking for work- if I don’t do my stress-relieving-hobbies, then the job search burns me out and I get depressed and can’t focus. So spending SOME time on “me” time helps keep me fresh. So look out, you’ll be seeing more of me again! xoxo Tara The Terror

I haven’t forgotten about you!

I know it’s been a while, but I wanted to just update y’all! :) The Palette Awards were very successful! I have SO many blogs I’m going through to assign awards for so I’ll post those when I can. No nail art designs lately because I was sick for nearly two weeks with a nasty sinus infection so I wasn’t posting, and now I’m getting into the swing of things again that I’m a tad behind. Its good though- I had a few nail breaks that have had a chance to grow out so I’m planning on some great designs in the coming days! I’ll try to email anyone who receives a Palette Award, but if I can’t find contact info I will leave a link to the post on your most recent post.

 

Thanks everyone for staying with me even through my random leaves of absence! <3

Warm and Fozzie Wishes From OPI!

Sending Warm and Fozzie Wishes From OPI!

This holiday season, OPI pays homage to America’s favorite Muppet friends as they hit the big screen in Disney’s The Muppets.  With an all-star cast including Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the entire Muppet crew, the family comedy opens in theaters nationwide on November 23, 2011.

Inspired by the film’s namesake lively and colorful characters, OPI launches twelve limited-edition Nail Lacquers for Holiday 2011. “OPI is so excited to work with Disney to celebrate this long-awaited movie release,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “Not only do The Muppets characters inspire fun, bright and joyful colors, the fashionable Miss Piggy lends her name to three high-shine pink-based hues, ranging from bold red flecked with silver to a multi-dimensional strawberry shade.”

This line features six shimmery reds and neutrals, as well as six glitter-packed shades, including:

Animal-istic
This wild bright red cannot be tamed!

Meep-Meep-Meep
Missing out on this fuchsia would make you weep, weep, weep!

Wocka Wocka!
The popular deep berry makes everything fun and merry!

Pepe’s Purple Passion
This deep, decadent shade is the best purple ever, okay!

Designer, de Better!
And this light metallic bronze is ready for the runway.
Warm & Fozzie
A feel-good shade of metallic copper.

Rainbow Connection
The rainbow glitter of your dreams.

Excuse Moi!
Ahem! This pink glitter has something to say!

Gone Gonzo!
The aqua-blue glitter is taking over the world!

Fresh Frog of Bel Air
A glitter that prefers the greener things in life.

Divine Swine
The finest, most fabulous magenta glitter ever.

Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It!
Red glittery fun for everyone!

Lacquer packed with micas and sparkle gives a 3-dimensional textured look that makes nails look like jewelry. With shades ranging from textured glitters in rainbow, red, green and blue to softer shimmers in copper and bronze metallic hues, these twelve colors provide the perfect accessory for the holiday season.

As with all OPI nail lacquers, these shades inspired by Disney’s The Muppets contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.

This limited edition promotion will be available beginning November 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for  $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

ABOUT THE MOVIE

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
