Everyday, Zen’s The Way

A close family member of mine gave me this amazing book a few weeks ago called Everyday Zen by Charlotte Joko Beck. Its been amazingly helpful because it has insights you can use every single day. Due to end of college/beginning of life stress, you better believe that its been great to have on hand. So, today’s design is inspired by the cover- a sand and rock garden….

I used Color Club Sweet seduction as a base with OPI San-Tantonio mixed with OPI Alpine snow sponged on to make the sandy texture (which you can’t see in a picture-only in real life, go figure). Then I used Clarins 103 (Pink Shimmer) over everything to make it look like 3d grains of sand….  I THEN used OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys for the lines in the sand and a mix of OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, China Glaze Cracked Concrete, OPI Black Shatter, and OPI Alpine Snow for the rocks. Topped off with one coat of Seche Vite and in person, its a wicked 3d sand garden and in pictures, it looks… sort of like one. :-)


Some of the products in this post were sent to me for consideration and review. For further information, please read my disclosure statement.

For fun, I decided to do Monopoly nails today. Since both hands had different designs, I decided to show you both :-)

From top to bottom, left to right: The “Chance” question mark, the railroad train, the Free Parking Car, The Go corner with arrow, the Monopoly man :-), dice, the Electric Company light bulb, Virginia Avenue, Jail, and my favorite piece with which to play: the Thimble.

For this manicure I used OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, Milani Dressmaker, OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Black Onyx, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, OPI DS Radiance, Nina Ultra Pro Bossa Nova, Color Club Ms. Socialite, OPI Chop-Sticking To My Story, Orly La Playa, an Unknown Color Club Red, Color Club Electro Candy, and Seche Vite Top Coat
