Scorpio Constellation Galaxy Gel Nails for Mani Monday featuring my beautiful friend Allison of Allison’s Workwear!

I am so excited about this mani! Not only are they some of my favorite nails I’ve ever done, I also got to hang out with Allison Hinson for a few hours and I have missed her so much! Here’s a cute pic of our little get together…

Isn’t she beautiful! And let me tell you, her inner beauty exceeds her outer beauty, which says a lot. Allison is quite possibly one of the kindest, sweetest, most genuine people I have ever met. And she is crazy beautiful! And an insanely …

Romantic nails and makeup inspired by my favorite beauty blogger MaskCara!

This girl has been a huge inspiration for me…

Cara won Allure’s Beauty Blogger of the year!

I’ve done several of her makeup tutorials in the past and love the results! And her videos are super fun to watch 🙂 Here are two videos I watched to achieve my mini makeover…

Don’t judge too harshly, I’m a nail tech, not a makeup artist 🙂 And I added too much hairspray to my hair before I curled it so I ended up with tighter curls than what I was shooting for, but …

Peach, grey, gold & white—the cutest color scheme for nails!

I am in love with this color scheme! I will go ahead and apologize in advance because you will probably be seeing a lot more of it! 🙂

The colors I used are as follows:
Peach–Gelish I’m Brighter Than You
Grey–Gelish Fashion Week Chic
White–OPI Alpine Snow (the best gel polish white)
Gold–Gelish Golden Treasure with loose craft glitter pressed in.

Here’s a spunky outfit to compliment the look! I’d like you to take special notice of the bag. Valentino. Enough said.

Fing’rs Heart2Art Collection at Walmart

Strolling through Walmart yesterday I came across an awesome assortment of nail art paraphanelia, I believe in the jewelery aisle, and stocked up on some adorable International Themed decals, some quirky Love Note tattoos, and three rolls of striping tape! Woohoo! Oh, I also grabbed two stamping plates that have a love note stamp I’ve wanted for a long time! I also needed a new stamping scraper and stamper so I felt like it was totally justified. 🙂

These are also the final version of my vacation nails–I decided …

Summer Braided Nail Design

My beautiful, funny, amazing friend Nicole got her nails done last week. Well actually she called it “making magic”. I think we did pretty good. 🙂 We used Gelish Carnival Hangover for the neon pink, Gelish My Favorite Accessory Stuff for the teal, and my favorite white, OPI Alpine Snow for the braids and polka dots. I think it turned out magical! 🙂

I did this with soak off gel polish…which is quite time consuming for the braided nail design. It’s a good thing Nicole loves hanging out with me 🙂 …

4th of July and Patriotic Nailart

I honestly love the 4th of July so much…for so many reasons. The top reason being that we live in the greatest country in the world and I love the USA so much! 🙂 My birthday might be the day before the 4th of July as well, so for as long as I can remember every time we celebrate my birthday fireworks and huge festivities are involved which always made me feel super special. My mom used to always buy me the cutest little red, …

Funky neon rose nailart

Check out these cute, fun nails! I originally did them on my friend Tennille with Gelish gel polish and then decided to recreate them on myself with regular polish. Here is Tennilles version:

I used Make You Blink Pink by Gelish and then an assortment of bright gel polish colors for the flowers. You have to do a white base under the flowers in order to get them to really pop and stand out! 🙂

Here is my version with regular polish:

I used China Glaze Flip Flop
Fantasy for the base and then …

Flag Day Inspired Nailart With Easy Tutorial

I love when I wake up in the morning and find that there have been U.S.A. Flags placed up and down our streets! See how pretty they look!

There are perks to being on Main Street! I usually have two flags in front of my house but I think a new person placed them this morning and accidentally did two at my neighbors–I’ll forgive them :)I also added some cute red, white and blue ribbons to my porch that I can leave up till after July 24th for Pioneer …

Neon peach and turquoise summer nail art!

Gelish I’m Brighter Than You–Neon Peach Gel Polish is amazing!

I just wanted to share these adorable nails with the world!

We used Gelish I’m Brighter Than You which is a neon peach and hard to capture on photo. I then did OPI GelColor Alpine Snow on her ring finger with Young Nails Mani Q Green 101 for the chevron stripes.

When I do the chevron stripes I freehand them and do thin coats until I reach the desired effect, usually in about 3-4 coats. I use a thin striping brush …
