Smith & Cult Suburban Warrior

Hey everyone! How was your week? I finally had some time just to relax and do nothing, something all teachers need to do when the year ends!

Tonight the husband and I are going to a Sam Smith concert at Madison Square Garden. I wanted to do something pretty on my nails, so I reached for Smith & Cult Suburban Warrior. This is described as an opaque watermelon radish, but I simply see it as a deep hot pink. As with all Smith & Cult polishes I've used, the formula is perfection! To jazz these up I did a little glitter on the tips with Julep Yumi, but you could really use any glitter you like.

Have a great weekend and stay cool!

Watermelon Nails

Hey everyone! As of last Thursday I'm officially on summer break! It was a crazy week packing up the room and my nails took a bit of a beating so they're a little short right now. Over the weekend we went to a wedding in Lake George and it was so nice to get away for a few days.

Now that my summer has started I'm kicking it off with these fun watermelon nails. My base is Zoya Dixie, a juicy watermelon creme. I used a Born Pretty Store stamping plate to get the watermelon designs and I love how it cam out. So cute for summer!

Hope you all have a great week!

Live Love Polish Party Favor

Hey everyone! I haven't posted in a while because it's been so crazy getting ready for the end of the school year. Our official last day is next Thursday and it can't come soon enough. We're all ready for summer break.

Last week on National Nail Polish Day I placed an order from Live Love Polish to get the limited edition shade Party Favor as a gift with purchase. Party Favor is described a s pink tinted jelly base filled with different sizes of silver holo glitters. I needed two coats for full coverage. This glitter is textured and it definitely ate all of my top coat (does anyone have a recommendation for a good top coat for glitter?) but it is still beautiful and SPARKLY! These pictures really don't do it justice because it's truly blinding.

 So. Sparkly.

Although this shade was limited edition, there are still so many gorgeous Live Love Polish shade's to choose from :) Have a great weekend!

Gold Pineapple Nails

Hey everyone! How was your week? It was a long one for me despite having Monday off for Memorial Day. We also took our second graders on a field trip to the beach on a bit of a rainy day so I'm exhausted. I'll get to relax a bit this weekend before a wedding we have on Sunday.

In honor of National Nail Polish Day, I decided to do some fun nail art! I have a thing for pineapples and I have no idea how it started because I actually don't like the taste of them. Weird, right? For these pineapple nails I started with a base of Butter London Cotton Buds, one of my favorite white polishes that's opaque in 2 coats.

The glitter is called Rise & Grind from the Nails Inc Caffeine Hit collection. It smells like coffee when it dries! I love this glitter and I think maybe for Sunday I'll do all my nails with this one. I did the stamping last with a plate from Born Pretty Store and Marc Jacobs Gatsby. How cute is this look? So summery and fun.

Hope you have a great weekend!
