Labradorite-Inspired Nails

If there’s one thing I like almost as much as glittery nail polish, it’s big chunky rings. I have small hands, so they tend to look somewhat ridiculous, but that has never stopped me before! Mr. NTMG bought me a … Continue reading

Tornado Sky Sage Green Franken

I have never seen a tornado, not having lived in that part of the world, but I’ve seen photos of the odd green sky that sometimes accompanies them. I think I’d keel over and die on the spot if I … Continue reading

Some Indian-Inspired Greens for Deepavali

Well, I’m back in my apartment after a lovely couple weeks in Hawaii. It’s November and it’s hot and sticky, which feels more than a little odd, but I’m trying to get into the holiday mood.  I’m headed to Japan … Continue reading

Chiyoda Green

Today’s subway line/franken color is the Chiyoda Line. It’s a nice, serviceable neutral green, rather like cartoon pine trees on map legends.  Unfortunately, it is not the same color green as Yoda, which would have been a nice play on words. Yoda … Continue reading
