“The Grace” Easter Mani!

My New Nail Girl!

Yesterday was a super fun day for me! Not only did I get to do one of my favorite people’s nails, I also got to do her adorable daughter’s nails too! And not to brag or boast, but I am officially her new nail girl…don’t be too jealous. :)))))

I’ve written about April before who is seriously one of the coolest people ever and I’ve told her to bring Grace, her 10 year old (almost 11!) daughter with her but it’s just never worked out in the past. …

Soccer Nails

I don’t know if I ever mentioned but we signed my son up for city league soccer this year. He LOVES kicking the balls at recess and will go out after school for hours in the backyard kicking against the house so we thought maybe soccer would be a good fit for him. And it has been such a great experience for him! Not always happy but I think it’s taught him a lot about himself and working on a team. He takes it pretty hard when his team loses, …

Acrygel — How To Get Your Gel Polish To Last Longer

Acrygel  – I’ve been doing gel polish for quite a long time now and it’s probably my favorite product ever. That doesn’t mean I don’t get frustrated with it at times. I wish it would really truly hold up to it’s claim of even just a two week mani but most people are lucky to get 10-12 days of good solid wear unless they have natural nails of steel. Would you agree?

Soooo I came across this method what people call “Acrygel”. I feel like the last person to have …

OPI GelColor Review–You’re Such A Budapest

OPI GelColor Reviews

I’ve been seeing a lot of people online asking about reviews for OPI GelColor so I thought I would start posting and see what kind of feedback I get. I have a ton of posts with OPI GelColor in them so I will add all of those to the GelColor Category as well.

You’re Such A Budapest Review

I have been wanting a good lavender gel polish for a while now. You’re Such A Budapest was released last year as a special release during the Spring 2013 collection release. It …

Arizona Peace Nails

My friend Tennille is taking a little getaway to Arizona this weekend and needed some fun nails to go along with her. I’m super jealous–she’s hitting up Pheonix, Scottsdale, and Sedona…with an Imagine Dragon’s concert thrown in! I love the Imagine Dragons so much! I told my son Westin when he gets a little older and doesn’t mind booming music we will go to a concert together and rock out 🙂

Tennille loves OPI GelColor Every Month is Octoberfest so we combined it with a “hippie” peace sign and a hibiscus …

Pink and Gray for Valentines Day!

I love pink and gray together! It is such a cute color combination whether it’s on your nails or your outfit or your house! So when Jess (who I do trade with for my fabulous eyelash extensions!) wanted a pink and gray combo yesterday I was more than happy to oblige. I’ll list the instructions below with all products used…

Sassy and sweet 🙂

Step One

Do three color coats of Gelish JetSet (or your gray polish of choice) and Gelish Make You Blink Pink on the ring finger. …

Operation Valentines Day–Part3

A Lovely Mani for Monday

February is here! Only 11 days till V-Day! I know a lot of people are not a fan of the day of love, which I totally understand, but I can’t help myself! Even if I didn’t have a reason to celebrate I would still love all the fun themes that go along with Valentines Day.

I did these nails for my beautiful friend Nicole. She told me I could have free reign. Well, anything but flowers is what she said. 🙂 I’ve been wanting to do …

Gelish Spring 2014 – Once Upon A Dream Collection

The Spring 2014 Gelish Collection looks dreamy! Aptly named “Once Upon A Dream” the colors are reminiscent of fairytales, castles, and knights in shining armor. My CosmoProf Beauty guide showed the colors to be released the first of February.

Shades ranging from a bright coral red to a soft pale blue…

Manis on Monday!

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is over! The holidays are flying right by us and before we know it 2014 will be here! However, I have a feeling the cold spell coming upon us this week will slow time down at least for a little while. 🙂

Last week was busy with baking and cleaning but I also had a few last minute nail appointments as well, which is great! I feel like I haven’t been super busy with nails lately so I always look forward to seeing my few friends and …

Lincoln Park After Dark GelColor with gold Aztec designs

Happy Monday!

It was Tennille’s turn to get her nails done today 🙂 I hope she’s not getting sick of Lincoln Park cause we’ve used it the last three times….

I love how LPAD applies in GelColor. I flooded a couple nails today and it was taking me forever to get it off the cuticles but usually it goes on flawlessly!

I did three coats of color then wiped off the sticky layer with alcohol and hand painted the gold designs with Essie Good As Gold. These would be super cute with …
