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!

Pastel Nails For Spring and Easter

I am in love with this color! It’s the perfect creamy yellow gel polish for a spring or Easter mani and will transition well into summer as well. I applied three coats in these pictures.

Feathers and flowers!

This color has been a love/hate relationship for me, as have all the Pastel GelColor’s I have used so far. They don’t want to cure right for me. If you are having this same problem with your Pastel GelColor’s, what has worked for me is to do …

Essie Fall 2013–Vested Interest and For The Twill Of It

I grabbed the Essie Fall 2013 Sample Cube while I was at SalonCentric this morning and am swatching two colors today and two Friday. Let me just begin by saying these colors are fabulous! Both went on super smooth and almost opaque with one coat. For The Twill Of It will be a great color to use for stamping, much like Good As Gold is.

This color is going to be a fall favorite for sure! It’s a metallic holographic color with shades of blue, …

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 …

Essie Madison Ave-Hue with Pure Pearlfection and Nail Art

First off, I bought this Essie color yesterday and I love it! Madison Ave-Hue is a pretty pink/purple with a slight shimmer. The application was flawless with two coats. I applied a coat of Pure Pearlfection over it to give it a little more shimmer and love the results. I did this mani for an Instagram Nail Art Challenge, my first one I will have you know. 🙂 With an Instgram Nail Art Challenge it’s normally a daily challenge to …

This is my sister Mandy probably 12 years ago when we were living together on Main Street…isn’t she a babe! 🙂

Mandy in my kitchen…one of our favorite places to hang out. Still a babe!

These cute nails belong to my big sister Mandy. She came over to my house yesterday to let our kids play and get their wiggles out and I talked her into letting me paint her nails. She has been wanting me to do either gel or acrylic sculpted tips to increase her length …

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 …

Essie Turkquoise and Caicos with Loreal Silver Sparkle manicure

Here are some pics of Essie’s awesome color Turquoise and Caicos. I don’t know if I love it so much because turquoise is my favorite color or because I have always wanted to go to Turks and Caicos…..hmmmmmmm.

Anyway, I LOVE this color! It is a minty blue green….the perfect color for spring! I love it with the sparkles over it too. It goes on smooth but needs three coats if not applied fluidly. I am going to love looking at my nails all weekend with this lovely color on …
