I’ve been living in my winter nail polish shades, one of my favorites of which is Essie’s Bobbing for Baubles. It’s a modern take on the classic black, supplying a small amount of color that appears flattering on all skin tones and looks both professional and fun.
Check out some other beautiful midnight blue color inspirations below:
Snowflakes | Moon Print
Chair + Table | Heels
Hope everyone is having a restful Christmas week! xo

I want to introduce a fun little game on the blog today called ArtBusters, which I have played in variations for a few years. Artbusters is a play on the game of Rockbusters, created by Karl Pilkington, in which a shoddy clue and initials are given to the guesser to help them guess the band or, in our case, the art term. An example would be: “The little girl is hungry; what shall we do? (F)“, in which case the answer would be “Feeder“. (Get it? It’s all a load of “craptic” clues. If you want to read more about it, you can go HERE.)
So to start us off I picked an easy one! Here’s ArtBusters #1:
Exclamation when you’re stuck behind a large vehicle in traffic (vG)
Know the answer? Comment below! Who knows, I might give out little prizes to whoever guesses correctly if people play!
What do you think about ArtBusters? Should I expand it to contain books, or maybe common brands? Let me know :)
Recently one of my designer friends, Brittany Newman, posted her beautiful orange-hued design project on Facebook and I was so inspired by the colors! They are the perfect subdued oranges that make you really, really want a delicious Creamsicle or maybe an orange soda — yum! Check out her adorable design of a hipster deer and two other tangerine images below:
Deer | Bird | Tomatoes
How amazingly cute is her design? Brittany is an Interior Architecture & Design senior at JMU and a very hard-working designer with a cool, modern style. We love you here at Rompadomp, Brittany! :)
What do you think of the color tangerine? Are you inspired by Brittany’s or the other designs? Let us know in the comments below! xo
It’s been a very busy Christmas season at Rompadomp! I haven’t had much time to blog, but I wanted to take advantage of this quiet morning to share with you guys a fun post I’ve had in my head for awhile. For this Pinspiration, I’m drawing inspiration from my favorite brand of nail polish, essie! They have recently come out with a holiday gift set that features some of their best-selling nail polishes and I am in love! I own several of these and cannot recommend them enough. Another bonus: they compliment one another really well, so it’s easy to mix-and-match! I definitely recommend picking up this set of mini polishes if you don’t already own most of them.
And now for my pins inspired by this collection! I chose to feature all Etsy items this week, to help support our growing community! If you are not already an Etsy shopper, please hop on over there and check it out — everything is handmade with love and care with the except of the vintage pieces, which compliment the personalized feeling of the site. So without further ado, here’s my color matching items inspired by the Limited Edition essie 2013 Holiday Gift Set:
Garland | Sweater
Necklace | Candle
What do you think about the essie collection? Which color is your favorite? Do you think the items I chose match the feeling of the nail polishes? Let me know in the comments below! xo

Over Thanksgiving break, I was lucky enough to get to do an informal meet-and-shoot with two of my beautiful friends, Taylor and Kylee. These girls are so inspirational to me and have always supported me, whether it’s about my business or telling me when a lipstick color doesn’t suit my skin tone! It was so wonderful getting to catch up with them, and we had a blast with our little photo shoot.
Here are some of our favorite pictures from the shoot:
