NAILS | Inspired by a NENA Sheet Mask #CBBxManiMonday

Here we are at Monday again and halfway through November! I have been keeping track of my spending and my paychecks on a spreadsheet as a way to stay accountable this year especially now that I am aggressively trying to save more should we ever go through another lockdown and though I am spending a lot more on bath is on Canadian-made ones and I feel a lot better supporting a small business than a large corporate company. In the spirit of supporting local and small businesses, I recently placed an order for some hand sanitizer sprays with Vancouver-based company NENA because they smell so damn good and leave my hands feeling soft. I bought enough ($30+ CDN) to qualify for their gift with purchase which were set of their Rejuvenating and Moisturizing Sheet Masks and in addition to their skin-loving potential, I also saw the potential for some nail art!

I was hunting for the right kind of green and I'm SURE I must have it in the hundreds of bottles in my office, but for the life of me I could not find one and ended up going with more of an army green from CND. I don't know if this manicure turned out quite like I had hoped, but I will file it away in my "valiant" efforts folder!

After drawing out the abstract design with a fine nail art brush, I felt like the design needed a bit of a sparkle so I ended up colouring in a few areas with the gold polish OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby from the very old Gwen Stefani collaboration.
