Bottom Line: Almost a duplicate of a disco ball, this color is a fire winner on the dance floor.

NOTD: Essie in Angora Cardi

I feel like I may have swatched this over a year ago...

Oh, well! It seemed like a good fit for the weather cooling down.

Fashion Nails - Michigan Ave

Last week I had a little bit of free time after work and before I met for up for a coworkers going away gathering. It was time I went into a nail salon. Last time I did this it was for prom! Many years ago...ha. I honestly didn't do research I just walked a block from my work and looked at the menu and thought, "not to high for downtown..." The girl did a good job, my main grievance was she had me pay halfway into it. How am I supposed to know how much I want to tip them? tsk tsk. I prolly won't return JUST from that. Does that seem hasty? You need to know in Chicago you can find a salon EVERY block here!
