Polished to Perfection

We are mirror image twins. That means one of us is left handed, the other right handed. Our hair parts on opposite sides. In high school, one was the cheerleader, the other the artsy girl who hid in her room reading VC Andrews. Our tastes in decor are opposite: cozy British chic to more is more COLOR.

When it comes to personal style, we are often on the opposite wavelength. One of us will be blonde while the other a dark brunette. When it comes to nails, if one has black matte, the other has a glossy nude. Simple and modern. Covered in crystals.

It makes life fun! Here are a few snapshots of some of our manicures, which we get done at a salon as part of a monthly self-care luxury. We also list some tools to DIY the ‘extra’ at home (as an Amazon associate partner, we may earn a percentage of sales).

Head Vase Case

Between the two of us, Stephanie and I own at least a dozen vases in the shapes of heads. We can’t stop! Here are some favorites:

These sleepy ladies come in all sizes and shapes (just like us!), and we are addicted. Whenever we find them at local gift shops, we snatch them up.

Her name is “Wabi Sabi Mama,” because she broke into 100 pieces, and while I cried for her loss, my husband glued and puttied her back together. She always looks fabulous, despite her scars. Currently she rocks a feather headdress, collected lovingly by a zookeeper friend. This one is from a greenhouse in Ozark, MO, but here is a similar one: Venus Head Garden Planter .
