This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Halloween-Inspired Nails

October, 28, 2014

As I was choosing my nail color with Julie, my favorite manicurist, a beautiful older lady approached and volunteered her advice. “I’ve lived through many trends and learned that bright nails aren’t always popular. Go big and go bold while you can!” I have to admit that she was a style sensation, so I’m taking her words to heart with this Halloween-inspired nail. Julie began with an orange base, OPI’s A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find.


Then she added a silver/purple diagonal streak of Significant Other Color.


This combo says Halloween, but as Julie pointed out, the look can take you straight through to Thanksgiving!


I’m really hoping the creative nail craze continues.
