Heart broken? MegPeg to the rescue!

Chris and I have been a bit heart borken the past several days
after the sudden passing of a great musician, Peter Steele. Type O Negative has been a long time favorite band of ours all the way back before the mainstream world had ever heard of them or swooned to the sound of Peter's deep powerful voice. So sad, so young!
I desperately needed a cheer up mani and good old Claire's MegPeg
jumped right out to comfort me and bring a wee smile to my eyes. A beautiful bright pink with a burst of scattered holo glitter throughout. She truly is a happy old friend to pull out when you need her!
I love this shade of pink

For these you need to click to enlarge and really see the holo glitter

A little blur to see her sparkle

Thanks for being there MegPeg!

Oh and one more happy to add to it.
Rhea was so sweet and emailed me her gift code to Piggy Paint that she won, for me to get my girls some pretties. My youngest adores having her tiny tips and toes polished. So I ordered the girls each a color and they came in yesterday. Crissa demanded her nails be polished immediatly. She's not even 2 yet and the girl has a serious love for nail polish, heavy metal and soccer.(which she calls football, she's so European.lol)
Thank You so much Rhea, you are the best!
Piggy Paint in Ice Cream Dream
A sweet metallic teal. This is one coat, no top coat.
Sorry about the blur but she holds still for about 7.2 seconds at a time. :o)
I love Piggy Paint for my girls, especially the little one that still puts everything in her mouth.
I feel much better having this safe alternative for her. And she thinks it's funny to have her nails blow dried.

What is your cheer up color?

  1. Sorry to hear about the passing, I can't imagine losing Claudio.

    You're nails do look quite stunning though Megpeg is gorgeous on you and that is a nice pink and holo..can't go wrong there. And so do baby girls nails, so little, dainty and pretty! lol my nails look about like that right now actually, I just chopped them all off and I swear they look like a 10yr olds hand.

    Piggy Paint makes some pretty colors for the little ones there. And that was oh so sweet of Rhea to share her code with you and the girls!

    I did a "Type O" mani this weekend in tribute to Pete.  :(
    I'll post the pics as soon as we figure out why Photoshop decided to be a douche.

  4. Everybody mournes Peter :( All of my friends were heartbroken too.

    Strange it may be, but my cheer up color is black. As its my favourite and one and only colour :)

  5. For me, it's not the color that cheers me up (although I might stand corrected with THIS amazing color), it's more of the 'doing' the mani that gets my mind off my woes and feeling pretty! :)

    I think my go to polish is Rampage.  It is certainly my favorite color.  Crissa has pretty nails.  Get 'em started while they're young.

  13. I hate hearing about musicians dying.  Especially ones you love.  Music is such an important part of life.  I have it on all day while I'm on the computer.  I have tons of CD's but I always forget to put them on.  I'm so used to the radio.  Love the cheery manicure.  Very pretty.  I'm on my third polish on my nails.  I just painted over the last manicure.  I started out with DS Original then painted on DS Amethyst.  Last night I painted over the Amethyst with DS Glow.  I really love this polish.  Bronze, gold & maybe silver holo.  Love the OPI holos.  Love the little ones nails.  Your raising her right with her love of polish, music and football!

  14. Oh the DS colors are lovely, but then I'm a total holo hoor! :-D

  15. I can't let her in my room, she heads strait for my polish closet and tries to grab some pretties.

  16. Love Rampage! It's funny since she is not at all girly, but loves nail polish.

  23. omg crissa's nails are so adorable! I don't think I have a cheer up polish, but megpag is AWESOME

  24. Sounds odd but I made a Type O green eyeshadow in his honor called Steele green, I'll be putting it on my site this week.

    Black can be as cheering as any in my opinion!

  25. Can't wait to see it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. It is a great color.

  27. Oh don't even think it, Claudio is just a baby my heart just could take it!

  28. She likes blues and greens, lol

  29. I love the mini manicure for your little one, too cute!

    My cheer up color is silver, any metallic silver, love it when its on my nails!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, that's too cute.  I wish I could have some girlie girls, but it's rough and tumble boys for me (really, I'm not complaining).  Anyway, My cheer up color right now is my HiTech holo green from Milani.

    I see we both were polishing toddler's nails yesterday ;)  I need to get my hands on some piggy paint, as I also don't like to use the chemical stuff for my little girl.
    (football is a better word for soccer, LOL ;) )

    Awwh, so cute that you paint your girls' nails :3

    I hadn't listened to Type O Negative in some time, but used to really like them :( he was too young. Seems like the metal community has lost a few people lately :(

  33. Hmmm I think that I have Meg Peg! I hope that it looks as good on me as it does on you!
