Snowflake Mani

Hey everyone! I'm back from vacation and I'm seriously missing the warm sunshine of Florida. BF and I had a fabulous time and perfect weather. We went shelling, saw dolphins, and had a ton of seafood. And ice cream. And daiquiris...Yeah, the diet starts now. Or after New Years.

Here are a few pictures of my favorite foods from the trip. On the top left we have my signature drink, a raspberry mango daiquiri. YUM. To the right of that are tuna tatar tacos with mango. The fish was so fresh. On the bottom left is salmon with vegetable risotto and string beans. I think that was my favorite meal of the trip. Next to that was the dessert I had that night. Key lime cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce. The lightest, fluffiest, most fabulous cheesecake ever. Did I mention how much I ate on this trip?

We saw some gorgeous sunsets and these were two of them. Below those photos are a picture of a live starfish we saw on the beach (BF threw it back into the water) and the amazing shells we collected when we went shelling. I was actually able to get all of the shells and most of the sand dollars home in one piece!

Btw, I ended up not changing my manicure during the trip. My Zoya Blu & Aurora mani actually lasted the whole vacation except for one tiny chip!

You can see the chip on my index finger.

Onto today's mani! Have you ever had one of those days where your nail polish is just NOT agreeing with you? I wanted to use Julep Isla for a snowflake mani and I had so much trouble with it. Over 30 minutes after putting on my fast dry top coat my polish was getting dents in it and one nail totally smudged. I got so fed up that I removed it all except my accent nail on my left hand. I was in no mood to do anything fancy so I pulled out Zoya Loredana, a fast drying matte velvet polish. Two coats and completely dry in ten minutes.

I'll have a fun NYE mani coming up on Tuesday or Wednesday. Happy Mani Monday!
