Last weekend Ali of Tattered, Tagged, Treasured invited me to a manicure party. The food had the theme of finger foods--get it? And included homemade bruschetta, a chipotle bean salad dip I ate way too much of, and chili. I brought finger-like cookies and bread sticks. The main focus was definitely on the nails though.

In addition to colors, there were glitters, magnetic nail polishes (very fun), stencils, and 3 dimensional effects. I got a manicure using glitter, a star sequin, and a nail art brush. And I think it looks fantastic, even if it is way more elaborate than my normal nails. That was part of the fun.

Ali set up a "nail salon" style station where she painted each persons nails. She had all the tools, soaking bowls, and hand lotions. It was one of the nicest manicures I've ever gotten!
The party worked well as an activity party because people could test colors while waiting, eat and talk and the person getting hers done and the host doing nails could still hang out.
