Girl Talk: Manis (& a giveaway)

Since I now have a sparkly new piece of jewelery (have you read my engagement story?) everyone has been looking at my hands. I suddenly feel very self conscious!!

I confess, I pretty much never have my nails painted. 

Honestly, I just don't really have the time anddd I'm pretty cheap. Since I've gotten engaged, I'm spending a whole lot of time admiring my hands... and I've realized they look better when my nails are properly manicured. The day after the engagement, I splurged (spent a whopping $13) and went to the nail salon by my apartment. Now, I'm hooked.  

I used to overlook any nail related "pins" on Pinterest, but now I actually am interested!

What are some of your favorite nail trends right now?

Anyways, Courtney who blogs over at Baxtron Life, has some amazing timing and organized an Essie nail polish giveaway that you should all enter! One lucky winner gets a TON of amazing Essie nail polish.. um, I'm jealous!! Scroll down to enter!!
