On Nnenna’s Nails #1: A Round-Up!

Well here we are!  You guys seemed to like the idea of a weekly post featuring my manicures, so I thought I would kick us off with a round-up of all the styles I’ve tried since my last post.  Tell me: Which of these is your favorite?

Also, with the surprising news that Google will be shutting down Google Friend Connect, I want to make sure you guys don’t get lost in the shuffle!  There are many ways to stay connected to my blog: you can follow me on Bloglovin’, subscribe to my RSS Feed, or follow me on Google+ where I share all of my favorite finds on the web.  There’s also Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to boot!  If you use any or all of these platforms, leave me a link or let me know your username in the comments below- I want to connect with you too! =)

For those who celebrate, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past week!  I certainly did :)  I spent Thanksgiving with my college roommate, which became a tradition when I was still in school and didn’t have a long enough break to fly all the way home for Thanksgiving.  We made a duck for the first time, in addition to the usual Thanksgiving fare, as well as three apple pies!  What can I say, they’re my favorite!

Last but not least, today is the last day you can take 25% off anything in my shop with the code SCSHOLIDAY and I’m offering free gift wrapping for the holidays too!  Happy shopping and check back on Wednesday for another edition of Handmade Holidays! =)

  1. Love the Yale nails! And I am so jealous you are so close to a Joe Fresh store – I so miss shopping there and I’m just not in NYC enough…

    Luckily I won’t have a problem with google shutting down friend connect since im on blogger & they aren’t cancelling it there, but it is SO dumb of them to cancel that *rolls eyes*

  8. I think I like the nice mocha brown color the best. I cant believe Google is shutting down the friend connect. So not cool. From what I’ve read it looks like blogger will get to keep it but it still sucks.
