The One With the Yellow Flowers

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  Yesterday I painted my resident's nails and well, my heart was full.  It has been MONTHS since I spent that time with them chatting, painting, and laughing.  Sad to me that so many people just discard the elderly population; they have so much to share with the younger generation.  People are truly missing out!

Today's manicure is the one I wore to match my dress for an event for the Alzheimer's Association.  It was such a wonderful night which raised over $100,000.00 for Alzheimer's research.  This is a cause near and dear to my heart because in my professional career I have seen so many people destroyed by this disease.  Not only does it destroy the resident, but it destroys the families as well.  Words cannot describe how horribly sad this disease is.

It was a beautiful event though and so many came together for the wonderful cause. Families who've lost loved ones, caregivers, members of the Skilled Nursing World, and even seniors with Alzheimer's were in attendance.  While it is a horrible disease, it was a time to celebrate the progress made in battling it and raising more money to hopefully eradicate it.

Let's take a look at the manicure!

Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Dahlia
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • Sally Hansen - yellows and greens
My dress was a gorgeous long white dress with black polka dots and yellow roses.  It wasn't a dress I'd typically go for because of the length and I feel that longer dresses typically make me look short and stumpy, but this one flowed so nicely.  I was so proud of the fact that my manicure matched the dress exactly.  I'm kicking myself that I didn't take a photo of the two of them together, but I was too busy eating all the good food that I forgot!

After doing this manicure, I want to do one with lemons soon.  I kept having a lemon vibe from my little flowers.  It is also a reminder for me to use more yellow!

What do you think?  Fan of the manicure?  Something you'd try?

Until next time, <3.
