Pastel Nails

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great weekend despite the rainy weather. We took some time to relax and get some things done around the apartment.

Sometimes I let the hubby choose my polish, and he usually ends up picking blue. This time he picked out two GlitterDaze polishes in the colors Sky's the Limit and Come Fly With Me. I love these beautiful pastel cremes! I used nail stencils to make the little tulips, but it got a little sloppy when I tried to outline with black. I still think it looks cute!





Hope you all have a great week! I know I'm looking forward to the long Memorial Day weekend.

Cactus Nails

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We had Mother's Day lunch with my fam on Saturday and then had a chill Sunday. It's nice to have a day for down time, especially as we get close to the end of the school year and things can get a little hectic.

I recently got these sweet little cactus decals from Julep and couldn't wait to try them out! Cute right?


I realized that Zoya Ness would pair perfectly with these. Ness is a soft jade green creme that applies nicely in two coats. Underneath those decals I'm wearing Butter London Lillibet's Jubilee, a silvery lilac foil that is one of my all time favorites. I love love love these nails!






Hope you all have a great week!

Zoya Dixie

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a good week so far. I've been enjoying the weather and some fun stuff for teacher appreciation week.

I've been pulling out all of my fun springy colors, so today I'm wearing Zoya Dixie. Zoya describes it as a juicy watermelon red, although I think it leans more pink than red. I definitely agree that this is a juicy color and the application is nice and easy in two coats. You know I can't just stop at one color, so I added Zoya Tinsley over top of two nails. It adds the perfect amount of sparkle!





Enjoy the rest of your week!

Spring Nails

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We just hung out in Jersey City and did some apartment clean up. We also started watching (AKA binging) Barry on HBO and we loved it! Now we're caught up and have to wait for the next episode.

I've been super excited about my nails because they're finally growing out! I'm hoping the continued warm weather will prevent more splitting and I can keep them long. Today I'm wearing two beautiful Essie colors that are perfect for spring. The color on my index and pinky fingers are Baguette Me Not, a pretty lilac creme. The other color is Blossom Dandy, a cool minty blue creme. The floral decals are from Born Pretty Store and I thought they went perfectly with these colors!






Hope you all have a great week and enjoy the upcoming beautiful weather!

Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 Nail Polish Fantastic

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? On Saturday the husband and I went to see Rampage, which was actually very entertaining. Who doesn't enjoy The Rock?! We went for all you can eat sushi afterwards and ate way too much. Sunday was a gorgeous day! We went with my family to see The Sting with Harry Connick Jr. at Papermill Playhouse and really enjoyed it.

Recently I saw that Marc Jacobs released two "Runway Edition" nail polishes for Spring 2108 in the shades Glow Business, a soft peachy pink, and Fantastic, a bright poppy orange. These are limited edition shades that were created for the Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 fashion show. Fantastic really spoke to me so I picked it up from Sephora with my 15% VIB coupon.

Honestly, when I first opened the box I thought the color would be too orange. Once I put on two coats I was in love! The formula is great and dries quickly with amazing shine even before top coat. I truly enjoyed wearing this color all weekend and can't wait to wear it on my toes ASAP. If you can pick this one up I highly recommend it.







Hope you all have a great week and enjoy the (finally!) warmer weather!

Smith & Cult Cut the Mullet

Hey everyone! I'm still here! I was on spring break and then getting back into the swing of things last week was tough. I hardly even painted my nails, but I've finally got polish on again and I'm super excited about it.

Today I'm wearing Smith & Cult Cut the Mullet, which is a gorgeous bright blue. I used two coats here. Over top I did some pretty hand painted daisies. You could use any white and yellow polish you have for this. I have a small double sided detail brush/dotting tool that works great for flowers.





Hope you're having a great week!

ILNP Paige & Pink Mimosa Ombre

Hey everyone! How was your week? I had off for spring break and it has been soooo nice to do some shopping, catch up with a few friends, and just relax. I can't believe how cold it still is here! My nails/cuticles are begging for warmer weather.

Here's a pretty ombre look I did the other day using ILNP Paige and Pink Mimosa. These are both gorgeous holographic pinks that are so sparkly and pretty. I started with two coats of Paige on each nail and then layered on one coat of Pink Mimosa, just at the tips. It looks pretty under the artificial lighting, but even more amazing in the sun!





Hope you have a great weekend!
