Cognac Sparkle

Hey Everyone!!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was good and I only managed to set one thing on fire. Literally. On. Fire! I made sweet potato casserole and put the oven to broil. Welllll, the marshmallow caught on fire. There was smoke, there was flame and there was a loud screeching fire alarm. It was quite entertaining to those that weren't directly involved. I opened the over to see the flame then closed it back up. Probably not the best idea but I was looking for a towel or pot holder or fire extinguisher or something lol. It was like a marshmallow that was stuck in the campfire so it was put out quite quickly. I peeled off the charred top layer of marshmallow and put some new ones on and popped it back in the oven and we were good to go. Thank goodness. This is the first year we have actually caught anything on fire so it was interesting. 

Today I have a great polish for you from N.Y.C. Nail Glossies called Cognac Sparkle. It was a birthday present and is a perfect fall color. I refuse to start wearing winter/Christmas manis until December 1st. I am looking at Christmas trees more seriously now. 

It is a really pretty deep burgundy, plum, wine like color with sparkly gold. Very pretty color. 

I am not going to show you my right hand much since after this picture my cuticles started to freak out even more than they already were. I am sure scrubbing the bathroom didn't help them.

I have been getting major shrinkage lately as well. I believe I have been wrapping my tips and all so I am not real sure about that. I do know my SV is old and usually when it gets old it starts acting up on me. I am assuming that is the issue.

I used two coats. This polish is really pretty and very shimmery.

My middle finger nail also broke a little since this picture. It would be nice if they would stop doing that lol.

Bruce Kittlee Master Ninja Warrior was wandering about when I was taking the pictures. When I took this one the camera actually focused on him instead of my hand lol.

And here is a great shot of him squished between the top of the fridge and the cabinets. He went back there so I couldn't reach him. He is smarter than the average bear.

That's all for now :)


  1. You are so funny! Yaay for long nails (mine have grown quite a bit too)! Lovely color also!

  2. Thanks :) WHOO HOO I am glad yours are growing too!
    It is a pretty color! I recommend it to all lol I am quite fond of it especially the shimmer lol

  3. Limited edition Nail Glossies? I don't think I've ever seen such a thing. This one's very rich looking!

  4. I have never seen Nail Glossies at all lol. I have been looking out even more after getting this one and nothing. It does look rich. I am loving the rich looking colors lately.


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
