The Pause that Refreshes

I intended to post more than I did this past holiday weekend, but I didn't manage it because I spent an unexpectedly long time sorting through and reorganizing my stash. For most of the weekend, I had polish bottles in places there are not usually polish bottles, like the family room floor and the kitchen counter. Here's what the counter looked like during the mostly warm-toned purples portion of the program:

I did take some time out from moving my stash around to meet up with two lovely ladies from the MUA nail board, Rachel (whom you may also know from her blog) and Christine. (Another woman who'd planned to come had to drop out at the last minute; I hope she can make it next time along with more folks.) We got so involved talking and exchanging nail goodies that we only took one picture as we were leaving:

Clockwise from top right, that's Rachel wearing China Glaze Gamer Glam with a silver glitter layered on top (a faux Nfu-Oh if I'm remembering right), Christine in Chi Chi Moondust (why yes, I was jealous), and me in Flormar U09 (which I recently got in a swap and will be posting more photos of once I've caught up with the NOTD that came before it). It was a fun time, and I'm looking forward to doing it again before too long. (If you're in the Detroit metro and want to be added to the mailing list for planning, send me your e-mail address.)
