While I was lagging behind the ABC Challenge (and also didn’t have a blog to post in), I chose breakfast as my subject for the letter ‘b’. I wasn’t really happy with the manicure that resulted and also had no idea that I really needed to clean up my edges and really moisturize. (I’ve included a picture of the original waaaay down on the bottom.) Well, the 26 Day Challenge snuck up on me with ‘Winter Warmth’ and I wanted to stay away from textiles so I went with something else that makes winter feel really satisfying and warm: food. Great excuse to re-do my breakfast mani before I posted it. Wish I’d posted this last night when I finished it, but the cat wanted snuggles and then it was time for sleep.

I am loving Essie’s “Mrs Always Right”. It’s a perfect light red (I thought Sinful Color’s “Resilient” was the closest I’d get to that) and not a pink. I expect I’ll hitting up this bottle a lot in the next couple of weeks.
