Elegant Neutral

  Here are some simple and elegant neutral nails that I wore to my Papa's funeral last month.  I still have a hard time believing he is gone, and I dream about him often.  It is difficult, never having lost anyone close before, to experience for the first time.  When I get really sad about it I just try to reflect on all of my happy memories and remember how lucky I am that I got to have all four of my grandparents with me for 25 years!

Outdoors, shade
  Sorry for the slight green tinge to the cuticles, that is leftover from Viridian Vinyl.  This is two coats of Deborah Lippmann Waking Up In Vegas, followed by a simple white design using Konad Special White polish and BM-213.  Simple and elegant, which is what I wanted to go for for the occasion.  This is such a gorgeous color, I really love it!  And Lippmann's apply beautifully.  I think I may need to get me some more.  :)


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss, I now how it feels. Incredible nail design!


  2. So sorry for your loss. Your manicure was a very personal and beautiful one to wear.

    All of my grandparents live firmly in my heart. (HUGS)

  3. So sorry for your loss. This mani is beautiful and very inspiring :)

  4. Sorry to hear about your loss. The manicure did turn out well, reminds me of blooming dandilions.

  5. I just adore this stamp!

  6. This is so beautiful!! I love the design and the stamping almost looks like little snowflakes. I am terribly sorry about ur loss!! My cat passed away last year & although she wasn't a person, I loved her like a child & she was the first thing I really loved to leave me! I was absolutely devastated! It will hurt for a while and it most likely always will. But what I can tell u is that in time, you will come to peace with it, & really just be able to cherish what you had with them without breaking down into tears. It will get better! *big hug* Keep your head up! & No matter what you have a wonderful kitty that loves you & will be there for u when u need it most! =) xxx
