Mentality Nail Polish – Featuring Hard Candy

Hard Candy

Back with another awesome swatch courtesy of Ermahgerd Perlish (fb). She says, “Today is my sons 8th birthday, so I wanted to do something fun with my nails! Here I just did a plastic baggy marble using Mentality Candy Jelly Holos (Bon Bon, Marmalade, Taffy, Sourball, Gumdrop & Hard Candy). Now to decide if I want to stamp some cute birthday designs over it!

I think it is fun to note that many Mentality Nail Polish colors are good for nail art. Maybe add some sprinkles? Or not. Very pretty as it is.

Merry Christmas to all

A star, a star, gleaming in the night with a tail as bit as a kite – one of my all time favorite Christmas time songs. A visual design to share with you, and an article from earthsky.org: http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/was-the-christmas-star-real

Thank you for visiting my posts in 2013. Looking forward to seeing you in 2014. Best wishes to all as we continue on our journeys.

Field Trip 12.16.13

I live in the California central valley now. Once I lived in the east bay. I grew up with the Coast Range on one side and the Pacific Ocean (well, San Francisco Bay) on the other. Now I can see both the Coast and the Sierra Nevada ranges. Today I ventured out of the valley in my little blue Fiesta sedan and into the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. I thought perhaps I would drive to Yosemite; only made it as far as Coultersville. It was a pretty drive, though, past orchards and nut farms, through La Grange and Roberts Ferry. At the junction I chose Highway 49 towards Mariposa rather than Sonoma. That choice led me farther up the mountain. I navigated some hairpin turns and pulled into a turnabout to stop and enjoy the view. After I had taken a few pictures, I returned to the car and kept heading upward. To my delight, I noticed patches of snow on the roadside, and on the side of the mountain “where the sun don’t shine”. I have not seen snow on a mountain for about forty years. I kept driving, making mental note of a patch of ice on the road. I made another mental note of the two snow plows heading back down the mountain. The lane I am driving to climb the hill is the outside lane. A few more hairpin turns – could it have been a devil’s backbone? Not sure – I decided the next turnabout was when I would reverse the journey and head back down. It did not take long and I confess I felt more secure in the “inside” lane as I navigated the hairpin turns again. Back through Roberts Ferry and on toward home. I saw patchy snow, a couple of deer, gorgeous scenery, quaint old towns. Not bad for a four-hour field trip.
