MANICure Monday | Spring Chick Nail Art

This week’s MANICure Monday | Spring Chick is to celebrate that Easter is just around the corner!

 I was inspired by the nice warm weather to paint something Springy.  And of course I found this idea on Pinterest.  That place is gonna be the death of me.  But thank goodness I’ve been having better luck lately.  I love the yellow, white polka dots and little baby chick.  It’s the perfect mix for Easter and Spring!

The brand was NK nail enamel that I picked up at my local beauty supply store for about $1.  I was so happy when I finally found a yellow polish that was opaque enough that I wouldn’t have to use  a white polish as the base coat.  And the best part was the price!  I think beauty supply stores actually have some of the best colors around and it’s always fun to find a new brand that you might not find otherwise.

Very often they’ve negotiated to bring you great paid apps at heavily discounted rates and sometimes even free.

How do we always find time to post super-adorable kid pictures on Facebook, but somehow never get that long-planned baby book done?  Well, guilt-trip no more.  Blinkbuggy is an online baby book that puts all your photos, milestones and funny stories in one place – and it’s as easy as a status update.  You can keep it completely private, link to social media (it can even grab the photos you’ve already posted), or share with whomever you choose – great for grandparents! These precious years will disappear faster than that photo you posted last month, so don’t spend another moment procrastinating.  Create an enduring – and endearing – album with Blinkbuggy online and in print!

MANICure Monday | #AutismSPeaks Autism Awareness Nail Art

April is national autism Awareness month. Autism is a broad term for a spectrum of disorders referred to as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD) or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). They are a group of neurobiological disorders that affect an individual’s ability to interact, communicate, relate, play, imagine, and learn.

The term SPECTRUM is an important part of understanding autism because of the wide range of behaviors and types of problems. There can be significant variations from one individual to another. There is a range of skills and challenges in individuals on the autism spectrum. Children with ASD may have a striking lack of interest, inability to interact with other people or have limited ability to communicate. On the other end of the spectrum are individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome and they may have difficulty with social interactions and exhibit a restricted range of interests and/or repetitive behaviors.

The puzzle piece was used because autism is a very complex and a puzzle to try to fully understand. Many times there are also a lot of people working together with those with ASD. These could range from parents, teacher, behavior therapist, psychologists, dietitians and more! And each of these people together help to try and put the “puzzle” pieces together.
