Martini Night Done Right.

How to have the best martini club evening ever:

--Rent out a nail salon for just you and your friends.

--Bring in your own food and beverages

--Sit back and relax while the workers work their nail magic.

--Have a smiley face painted on your foot

--Pop a few cupcakes, pop a few bottles

--Admire each other nails

--Make a mental note do it all over again.

How not to have the best martini club evening ever:

--Spill an entire bottle of wine in your car on the ride home. Two weeks after having it detailed.


How to forget that you spilled an entire bottle of wine in your car:

--Look down at your pretty nails. And then pour yourself another glass.

Just thought I would pass along a few very important "how-to's" for you this fine Thursday.
Or Wednesday evening. Whatever day it is. Really, who is keeping track?

Happy day to you kitten britches.

ps. i love you martini club. and i love you readers. and nails. yes, i definitely love you most of all.

  8. Oh My Gosh!! What an absolutely incredible idea!!! I'm super jealous and your mani/pedi look wonderful! What shade is your pedi?! And girl, I can relate to spilling wine in the car. I was transporting back and forth as the DD in my less than a week old Murano... no need to tell me it wasn't smart, I know! And my friend let go of the OPEN bottle of wine... spilled all over the floor of the car and smelled for WEEKS!!! The Oklahoma heat didn't help much. Needless to say, I was done being the DD after that and finished off the bottle! ;)

  35. How did you manage to rent out a nail salon?? I want to do this, but I'd probably add a limo or a party bus... None of us would be good to drive post nail and booze night... If I only had money... :/
