Pink and Gold

I love this natural look! Pink gel polish with gold half moons…so pretty and perfect for 2016! You could switch it up with purple or white or both too!

White nails are always on point!

Creative Nail Design Shellac Aurora Collection

The Shellac Aurora Collection from Creative Nail Design is so gorgeous and perfect for winter manis! With names like Tundra, Winter Glow, Glacial Mist, and Nordic Light these shimmery rich colors are definitely reminiscent of the aurora borealis and frosty glaciers. It’s amazing how something as simple as a name can stir up memories…when I saw this collection I was immediately taken back to the summer after my senior year in high school where I worked in Glacier Bay, Alaska for three months.Β So many good memories.Β πŸ™‚

My Mothers Day Nails

Mother’s Day is right up there at the top of my favorite holidays. Not because it’s a day where I get spoiled, but it’s a day that reminds me of the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I’ll never, ever forget the first time I laid eyes on my son…I know it’s super cliched…but it was the best day of my life. Becoming a mother. I never knew I would love it so much.

Now we have another little boy about to join our family and I can’t be more …

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. πŸ™‚ Click on pics for information on how to buy any of these suits or polishes!

The Sense of Smell

The Amazing Sense of Smell

In my past life, I was a store manager at Bath and Body Works. It was probably the longest year of my life and one of the most difficult jobs I’ve ever done but I learned so much and don’t regret doing it. All in all it was a good experience and it paid the bills during the months after my husband and I left our restaurant business at The Fairway Grill. You can read that whole story HERE.

One thing I learned at Bath and Body …

Operation Valentines Day

I think Valentines Day nails might be some of my favorite nail designs! So in honor of my love for nails about love I will be overloading my blog, Instagram, and Facebook with hearts and kisses and roses and all things Valentines Day!

Here’s my first mani and I really love it. It’s a lot prettier in real life. I just couldn’t capture the colors and diamonds and glitter on camera the way I would like so just trust me on this one. πŸ™‚

Diamonds are a girls best friend!

Mani Monday–Crossfit Nails for a Crossfit Rockstar!

This is my friend Connie…isn’t she cute πŸ™‚

I like to call her Crossfit Connie πŸ™‚

I’ve known Connie for about three years now. She was one of the original’s at Crossfit Dixie. I was totally intimidated and scared of her when I first started working out down there because she is sooooo bada$& but after hundreds of wod’s together I now know Connie is one of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful people I have ever met. And there’s nothing to be afraid of…but she is still totally bad-A! :)))) Check …

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 Days!

Does Vinylux by CND really last for 7 Days?

Yesterday marked the end of my 7 day Vinylux Challenge. I must admit, I love this new polish!!! CND claims it will last 7 days chip free and although I did not see those results I was extremely pleased that mine lasted five days chip free! In Vinylux’s defense, I am ULTRA hard on my nails! I usually can only get about 9-10 days out of gel polish.

My ring finger corners chipped off at day 3 but it was on the verge of breaking before I applied Vinylux. I wore …

Day 1 of CND Vinylux Tropix, Cream Puff, Black Pool, and Roses…Instagram Giveaway to win Vinylux Kit!

This is for Nancy, an amazing, generous, kind lady…

Tropix is my favorite CND Shade and it’s perfect for summer time!

I just am so excited about this product I can’t wait till Day 7 to review it, my initial plan, because I wanted to show a day by day slideshow of the durability of Vinylux. I am still going to review this on Day 7 so it’s possible you might be sick of hearing about my Vinylux mani by next week! πŸ™‚ I really hope I am chip free by …
