Instagram Roundup #19

by Jamie Sanford on December 19, 2012

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Still using Instagram for now. The new Flickr app kicks ass though.

Random stamps from sending out my international holiday greetings.

Amazing holiday greeting from Sweet Paul Magazine, including GLUE GUN TEMPORARY TATTOOS! So awesome.

Early Christmas gifts! Gorgeous things from MAC.

…and in the other box was The Jaws Log, because I am random. I am nearly done reading this book, it is fantastic.

I also read this amazing piece on Trent Reznor in The New Yorker. I’m sure that industrious types can find the article online, but Will kindly bought me a copy so I could read it. Really spectacular.

Took this unfortunate picture of my holiday manicure, that I will have to re-do before traveling, since the polish is coming off quite a bit now. It’s a mix of 3 different polishes, and it looks like Christmas threw up on my nails. Would it be weird to add something about moisturizing my cuticles more often to my resolution list? Also, Tiny Edward.

Sights and Sounds #21

Sights and Sounds #21

I had this link from ages ago, to these adorable Lady Gaga cookies.

Here’s a tutorial that is much easier than I anticipated on making an animal-print manicure.

Add VersaEmerge to the list of acts that have covered Britney’s “Toxic” and covered it well.

That brings Sights and Sounds #21 to a close!

Nail Polish Picks for Small Holiday Gifts

Catch Me In Your Net

OPI's Catch Me In Your Net

Nail polish is one of my latest obsessions and so I have created my own Amazon store to showcase some of my favorites that I think would be great gifts for the holidays.

I stopped biting my nails earlier this year after doing so for as long as I can remember. (If only it were that simple to adjust other bad habits I’ve had for years and years…) So naturally, after I realized how expensive it was to be getting manicures from the professionals on a regular basis, I started buying nail polishes.  I started reading fabulous blogs about nail polish like All Lacquered Up and Let’s Go Sparkling.  I started experimenting with different sparkly topcoats.  I realized that like having colorful necklaces and bags, my nails can be a fun colorful accessory to go with my generally all-black outfits.

OPI has emerged as my favorite brand of nail polish, but I have polishes from a number of different brands. My current collection of nail polishes has inspired the creation of this store on Amazon, containing most of the polishes in my current collection!

I would love to hear about readers’ favorite polishes in the comments!

I’m excited to present this edition of “Gifts that Give Back” as I love dark nail colors and it doesn’t get much darker than Morticia Addams.

The profits will be donated to the Actors Fund, a charity started over a century ago to assist those in the entertainment industry.

Colors are as follows:

Every fashionable lady of the darkness will be drawn to Morticia’s Nails. Blood Curdling Red is certain to scare the crows away. Bone Chilling White will remind you that death is just around the corner. And Midnight Tango is all but certain to keep the passion alive.

The set of 3 colors is available for $30 on the Actor’s Fund Store website.
