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!

Pastel & Metallic Nails

Hey everyone!

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty chill and I had delicious brunch on Sunday with a couple of friends. After this week it's our spring break and I'm counting down the days!

Today on my nails I'm wearing the prettiest pastel and metallic combo. The purple pastel color I'm wearing is GlitterDaze Come Fly With Me. I used two coats and it went on nice and smooth. The metallic gold color is Julep Shawn #Shine. I love the contrast between soft and edgy. This is another look where you could use so many different combinations of colors!





Hope you have a great week!

Essie Go Ginza

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We did some errands and had all you can eat sushi, which is always so good. We watched the new Jumanji movie and we actually thought it was hilarious! Highly recommend.

I've still been having a rough time with my nails and the continuing cold weather. They just keep breaking :( Really hoping the weather warms up soon so my cuticles can be happy again. I'm taking out all of my spring colors because maybe if I stop using dark colors it will get warmer out?

For this mani I started with a base of two coats of Essie Go Ginza, a soft pinky purple creme. I absolutely adore this color! I then used my little detail brush to do some pretty flowers and leaves. The glitter is Marc Jacobs Glinda. This is such a pretty look and any color combo can be used.





Hope you have a great week!

Julep Julep & Queen Anne

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We did a lot of cleanup around our apartment and then enjoyed watching the Oscar's last night.

Today I'm wearing a couple of older Julep polishes that I love. One of them is actually called Julep and it's a pinky purple creme. The formula is great one this one and it almost looks a little squishy. The glitter is Queen Anne, which is a lilac color and it's super sparkly. I really love these two together! It's funny because I'm super ready for spring colors but we're supposed to get snow this week. Oh well, that won't stop me.





Have a great week!

Smith & Cult Lo-Fi

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend. I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for school starting back up after February break and I'm so not ready. It is kind of crazy that March starts this week and then there are only 4 months remaining in the school year! I'm definitely looking forward to warmer weather and bright spring nails.

This weekend I decided to try another one of my new Smith & Cult polishes (got this one on eBay). The color is called Lo-Fi and it's an espresso brown creme. I honestly wasn't sure if I would like it but after applying three thin coats I was totally sold. This is a very rich and creamy deep brown that looks super glossy and gorgeous. I've been really impressed with the formula of all of the Smith & Cult polishes I've tried so far. For my chevron accent color I used Cirque Colors Halcyon, which is a stunning rose gold metallic.







I still have a bunch of Smith & Cult polishes I need to try but they're definitely spring/summer colors and I'm not quite ready for those yet!
