A Tribute to Amanda's Mom...

During my adventures in the nail world, I have been fortunate to meet Amanda at Nail Polish Enthusiast. She is a talented nail blogger and an awesome person! When she had asked if we would join her in a memorial post for her mom, who passed ten years ago today, I immediately wanted to join in.

For nail inspiration, Amanda told us that her mom loved tulips, the color red, and vintage jewelry. Also, Amanda has designed a nail lacquer, Tuilleries, along with LEX.  (The Tuileries Garden is a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris that was created by Catherine de Medicis.)

Though I love nail art, I wanted to do something vintage-y, something feminine, and something tulip-colored. I ended up finding a solution that I think worked quite well.

I went with Nail Rock's Nail Caviar in Venus Gold/ Venus.  Easy application and it looks like vintage jewelry for your nails. The caviar beads were a selection of red, fuchsia, teal, rust and gold. 

Amanda, may the memory of your mom be eternal. ( This is a Greek customary saying. ) Thank you, for letting us share in this day of remembrance with you.

  2. Thanks Tuxarina! And lovely manicure, Elena! This is certainly something I can see my mom liking and if it was jewelry, I'm sure she'd have bought it ;)

    1. I am so glad you think she would have loved it... biggest complement! Thanks, girl!
