MANI MONDAY: Nars Galathee

Happy Mani Monday friends!  How was your weekend?  Mine was swell!  I was off work and I got see all of my friends out on Saturday night.  We threw my close girlfriend a goodbye party because she will be leaving us to move to Charleston (sad face).  I am pretty jealous though because Charleston is the epitome of Southern grace and I just love how charming and adorable it is!  I am very sad to see her go, but I am looking forward to all the fun Charleston trips in the future!  On Sunday, Scott and I shopped up  J Crew and found some great things!  They are having their 25% off sale on women's apparel and accessories right now. Hurry and shop it while it last: Click to shop! After racking up, we went to Gemma on North Henderson.  OH my gosh...Oh my gosh!!  This was our second time to go and I would have to say it is my favorite restaurant in Dallas right now.  If you haven't gone then you are sadly missing out.  We both started out with a refreshing blood orange margarita, then an order of the baked oysters topped with bacon....pure heaven.  The pappardelle is homemade right in their kitchen and literally the best you have ever put in your mouth.  You definitely need a good glass of red wine to drink with it for sure because the ragu sauce is so rich and meaty.  Scott ordered some dessert that resembled a giant peanut butter cup that was actually filled with a chocolate mousse with roasted marshmallows on the side.  Food porn...that's all I have to say about that.  

My polish choice for this Monday is "Galathee" by Nars.  Since it feels like spring outside, I thought I would go a little lighter.  This bluey gray is the perfect color to transition you into spring! The Nars nail polish's have an advanced polymer system which provides no chips and a durable, longer wear.  I have read reviews and many customers claim that their mani lasted up to a week with the top coat.  Now that's what I'm talking about!  I love that because I'm definitely that girl who goes to get her nails done and then 5 minutes later post mani, they are already messed up!  I mean, you've been there for over an hour already, I'm ready to get the heck out of there!  I know I'm suppose to sit under the UV light for 10 more minutes but I just can't...but look what I get for being impatient!  

In closing to this post,  I would like to ask if everyone would keep my Maw Maw in their thoughts and prayers.  She's 91 years old and last night she fell and was rushed to the emergency room.  Today the doctor informed her that she will have to have a hip replacement or pretty much be bed ridden for the rest of her life.  The surgery is very major especially for her age, and my family and I are extremely worried as to how she will recover.  We need all the prayers we can get!  Thank you so much.

  1. Hey Ashley, so sorry to hear the news about your grandma. :( I'll keep her along with your family in my thoughts. On a happier note, I LOVE the smokey blue polish! I've never tried Nars' polish before but I love so many of their products already, I'm sure this wouldn't be any less adored. I hope your week gets better! <3 Megan
