Cute Winter Nails

Happy Mani Monday! How was your weekend? It was actually cold! The temperature is going back up later in the week, but I'll be Puerto Rico on Friday so it will be even warmer there :)

I am so so so excited about my festive and fun winter mani, despite the recent warm weather. I wanted to do something cute to show the kiddos before winter break, and these did not disappoint! My three little friends here are a polar bear, a snowman, and a penguin with a scarf. I can't help but smile when I look at these guys! Too stinking' adorable.

Hope you all have a great short week!

Marc Jacobs Wine Not

Happy Friday! Just two and a half days left next week and then it's time for a vacation. I'm so looking forward to having a little break.

Today I have on Marc Jacobs Wine Not, a deep pomegranate metallic shimmer. I can't say enough good things about this color. It's just gorgeous. I paired it with a little bit of Julep Diamond Theory.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Essie Go Ginza

Happy Mani Monday! We have so much going on at school since it's the last full week before break. Counting down the days!

I recently picked up Essie Go Ginza and, even though it's a lot lighter than the colors I normally wear this time of year, I just had to put it on! Go Ginza is a beautiful baby lavender that can sometimes look more white than purple. It's such a pretty color! I'm definitely excited to have this one in my collection. For a little something extra I used my gold flower stickers from Born Pretty Store.

Have you picked up any new polish lately that you just love? Let me know! Hope you all have a great week :)

Chanel Orage

Happy Friday! I'm so excited for the weekend. SLEEP!

Chanel Orage was calling my name today, even though I just had it on my nails recently. It's just so glossy and beautiful! The formula is self-leveling which makes it so easy to apply. This time I used Essie Set in Stone as a glitter accent.

I hope you all have a great weekend! And get outside, it's supposed to be in the 60s!

Hanukkah Mani

Happy Mani Monday and Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating! The BF and I had our first night of Hanukkah in the apartment last night with our electric menorah. We also had some latkes, of course.

I decided to do something simple on my nails this year for Hanukkah. I started with Essie Butler Please on all of my nails except my ring finger, which has Essie Urban Jungle as the base. I then created a Star of David using Julep Serena. I love how it came out!

Hope you all have a great start to your week!

Island Girl Old Lahina

Hey everyone! How was your week? It went by super fast for me. I'm super excited about today's mani because the polish came all the way from Hawaii!

My parents went on a big Hawaii vacation a couple weeks ago (yes, I was jealous) and my dad spotted some Island Girl nail polish while they were shopping. My mom picked out two colors for me - Old Lahina and Surfing Paradise. Today I'm wearing Old Lahina, a lovely rich red creme that is opaque in two coats. The dry time was ridiculously fast! I used Surfing Paradise, kind of a pinky nude, to do some Hawaiin flower nail art. I think it came out pretty cute!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
