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!
