My First French?? Really?

Always something exciting going on over here! My grades came in from this past semester at law school and...I kicked butt if I do say so myself!! I'm very very pleased and it was such a relief to start my second semester already knowing my GPA wasn't going to be a worry.

Anyway, after the results came in I decided to take a chance and I sent a bunch of cover letters and resumes to a few local law firms looking for a summer internship. Someone in Heaven is watching out for me and I got contacted by not one but TWO law firms to come in and interview!! Luckily, a huge part of my Christmas swag this year was professional attire so I knew just what to wear.
                                                                                  Me looking all fancy->

Officially, I have been offered both internship opportunities...so now I have to decide! Yay!!

Of course, even MORE important than the clothes...the nails. Because lawyers are conservative (boringgg) I took off my colorful manicure and replaced it with a simple French Manicure. It dawned on me that I don't think I've ever done a French on my own nails before. They came out clean and I'm still rocking them.
I've got a summer internship! WAHOO!

Caviar Manicure

Today's manicure is a Caviar Manicure a la Ciate paint pots. 
Never did a manicure like this before but I really like the texture and the look of it a lot. Hopefully the beads will stay put for longer than an hour though. I might be trekking back to my parent's house this weekend and I'd like my mom to see it intact!

For this look I used: Ciate Power Dressing and Ciate Caviar Pearls in Prom Queen.

Christmas Polish Swag 2012

Merry Christmas (for those who celebrate it) and Happy New Year everyone! I feel like I always blog about  nail polish related goodies are dropped off by Santa each year. This year continued the tradition of nail polish, remover, cotton balls, accessories, etc. My Christmas swag of 2012.
The colorful thing in the back is the Ciate "Mini Mani Month advent calendar." I don't know much about the Ciate brand at all because this is the first I've seen it. So far I like the polishes I've tried though. Each number square hid a bottle of nail polish in a random color. The bottles are adorable...they even have little bows on them. Also, there were a few bottles that contained tiny pearls (the left top and bottom right in the picture below) that can be used for "Caviar manicures." You bet I'll be giving that a try just as soon as I post this. Can't wait to share!!
Then there was my standby Sally's Beauty Secret Acetone nail polish remover. I'll probably blog eventually about the different nail polish removers I've used but for now and ID is good enough.

Polishes: The title "First new polishes of 2013" goes to....China Glaze Latticed Lilac, China Glaze Cracked Medallion, Finger Paints Signed in Wine, Sally Hansen Plum's the Word, Avon Mosaic Effects Top Coat, Avon Decadence, and all the Ciate minis. Phew, a bunch of new manicures to try already! Wahoo!

Accessories and mani-helpers: Avon nail glitter Iridescent (the big white/silver pot on the bottom), Sinful Colors Glitterazzi, and Sephora by OPI Pink Nail Glitter. I think Santa wants me to experiment with some nail glitters in 2013.

Thanks to Santa for feeding my polish addiction and spoiling me with a TON of new goodies! I am one very lucky girl!
