Girls’ Night Out

Top:  from local boutique Sugarplum

Jeans:  Chip and Pepper

I JUST noticed that my toenail polish is almost exactly the same color as my top.  Completely unintentional!!! 

I hope you’re all having a fantastic Memorial Day!

NOTD: ManGlaze Blue!

Today’s mani is brought to you by ManGlaze (which Hubby thinks is hysterical, btw) The color is called “Blue!”, which is actually a shocking matte pink.  ManGlaze is known for their matte polishes targeted at guys, but they have developed a cult following in the blogosphere for their other colors, Matte is Murder and Fuggen Ugly.

Blue! (also being sold under the more rock-n-roll name of Fuck Off And Dye!) is one of their latest colors, and this is what the company has to say about it: 

“Debuting in our limited edition caution tape label, ManGlaze brings you our exclusive matte finish now in fucking pink! We decided to release it early because of all the nonsense in the news about nail polish turning little boys into little girls. The name of this color pretty much sums up our opinion on the matter. Use with a base coat or it'll dye your nails pink. “

As for the reason the polish was released, I completely agree with the company.  Boys wearing nail polish is by no means going to make them girly, and if either of my boys choose to wear polish, I am all for it.  If this is the most pressing thing worrying our society, I would say that we are all living pretty good lives.  Anyway, on to the pictures.


This is two coats.  I’m usually not a huge fan of matte polishes, but I actually kind of like this as a matte.  But just for fun I added a coat of CND effects Amethyst Sparkle.



Look at that sparkle and shine!  (excuse the excess polish on my cuticles and the wrinkly old-lady hands.  I need to invest in some AHA hand crème, stat!)


Here it is again in the sun.  Pink is usually not a ‘me’ color, but I can’t stop staring at my hands.  Love the artwork on the bottle, too.  If you want '”pinky fingers and pinky toes” as well, ManGlaze polishes are available on their website,
