So I have come up with something fun. In my latest fascination with polish, and all things that encompass it, I've come across some really great manicures. So each week I am going to feature the manicure of the week.
This one is bound to be a favorite, courtesy of nail technician extraordinaire, Brandi Peddy. Thank you  Ms. K for lending your beautiful nails to idleberri. This is a black cream, unknown brand, and middle fingers have OPI Mad as a Hatter. It won 2010 Favorite Polish color on All Lacquered Up, and I can see why. This color is like a party on your nails. Honestly unless you see this polish up close and personal you really don't get the full effect. It's like a burst of intense glitter. Another thing to note is in this picture the Mad as a Hatter application is only two coats.

The results are in and my nails are nourished and polish ready. The final result pics were taken on February 13. Compare the index finger in the before and final results. Notice how nubby the index finger looks in the before pic. Granted its not huge difference, consider how short the nail was prior to applying the rejuvacote. While rejuvacote can and is suggested to be used as a base coat under polish, unless your nails are in really bad shape, I would use a "true" base that helps polish to adhere as rejuvacote tends to chip and needs reinforcement coats to be truly effective.  Overall I am very happy with the results of rejuvacote.

I (HEART) Oprah Hair

Ok so I LOVE Oprah's Hair. Many of you may be surprised to know that is her natural hair. I thought I would showcase some pics to give you an idea of what I mean.

If you're natural hair curls like this, that's amazing, but this look can be obtained with a small barrel curling iron
