Fall Polish Collections–OPI, China Glaze, Essie

I don’t want summer to end, but I always eagerly anticipate Fall’s arrival. It’s such a magical time of year, especially in St. George.

I am loving the Fall Polish Collections I’ve seen so far and thought I would share my favorites…OPI, China Glaze, and Essie. I love fall fashions and I cannot wait to match my favorite nail color to my favorite scarf and boots!

My 5 Favorite Mom Swimsuits (and of course polishes to match!)

I love internet swimsuit shopping! I could browse Victoria’s Secret and Orchid Boutique Bikini for hours…which is so weird because wearing a swimsuit is not one of my favorite things to do. This summer is going to be especially interesting with a post baby body but I am going to try to have as much fun in my suit as possible and it’s always helpful if I’m wearing an utterly adorable suit. 🙂 Click on pics for information on how to buy any of these suits or polishes!

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 …

My Swimsuit Wish List–And The Perfect Polish To Go With The Perfect Swimsuit!

Swimsuit season is upon us here in sunny southern Utah. I’ve always loved summer time, but in years past, I would dread any occasion where a swimsuit would be the appropriate dress code. Which happens a lot for my family because our in-laws have an amazing pool and backyard and my little boy loves spending time at the Washington Rec Center.

Westin’s favorite place in the world–the Washington Rec Center

I’ve been asking myself a lot lately why this swimsuit season is so different than others and I think there …

Spring nails for my grandma Irene–Essie Shop Till I Drop with gold glitter and Seche Vite of course!

Vintage Grandma gets vintage spring nails by her modern vintage granddaughter

This is my cute Grandma Irene. She has been on this planet for 93 years now! I don’t get to spend a lot of time with her, partly because life is so busy for me and my little family and partly because she is a stubborn homebody who doesn’t like to make house calls. I don’t blame her, if I couldn’t move and think as quickly as everyone else around me I’m not too sure I would want …

Sporty nails! China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, For Audrey, Houndstooth Stamping, Rhinestones–inspired by Mizuno Wave Rider 16’s!

I painted my nails to match my shoes! A first for me! Hopefully they will be lucky for our volleyball tourney tomorrow in Panaca, Nevada!!!!

I used China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy & For Audrey with OPI Alpine Snow and Black Onyx. The houndstooth stamp is one I bought in Amazon. It went on really well! I was super nervous but love the results!

Wish me luck tomorrow!
