Hey everyone!  Sorry I have been MIA for the past week, but I was planning a surprise party with my sister for our Mom's 50th birthday!  My sister flew in from Florida and has been staying with me until yesterday, when we had the surprise party.  It was so much fun!  I had never planned a surprise party before, and we were very happy with the way everything came out.  My Mom was definitely surprised and enjoyed her special day.  So fun!

Because I had been so busy last week, I had nothing on my nails - shock, I know!  There was absolutely no time to sit down and do a manicure with all of the planning and organizing (and throw in soccer practice and first soccer game for my son).  So today I was very happy to have a little bit of spare time to sit down and do my nails.  They have been growing so fast lately that I decided to trim them down and do a little shaping as well.  When my nails get past a certain length some of them have a tendency to curve in at the sides, which drives me insane!  Usually filing the sides can help, but only for so long.

So today I have a leopard mani to show you using some of the colors from the OPI Euro Centrale Collection.  My primary color in this mani is My Paprika is Hotter than Yours!

The accent nails were done using My Vampire is Buff for the base color.  The leopard spots were created using My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours! and outlining them in OPI Black Onyx.

I love the way My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours! pops on the accent nails.  I hope you all enjoy this look!  Also, I have not forgotten about the giveaway I had mentioned.  The post should be up within the next couple of days.  I had wanted to get it up last week, but time did not permit.  So stay tuned for that!

Until next time...
