I am in love with this look!

Well it turns out the peacock water transfer nail tattoos are really popular! I’ve been doing them a lot lately and so far mainly with a coral/pink color. Which I love!

I should clarify what I mean by “doing them a lot” because that could be misleading. I think I might have six regular “clients” that I do steadily. I wish I could work more but right now my life doesn’t really allow for that. I need to do a contest for more nail giveaways so that I can meet more …

OPI GelColor Red Hot Rio Review

Hi everyone!

I’ve been MIA the last few days and I apologize. My server was down for a few days and then it has just been CRAZY with a capital C! I always love this time of year when school is starting to wind down though and summer is on the way. The weather is starting to turn amazing and there are flowers blooming everywhere and the sun is higher in the sky…

Also, I am at 36 weeks now with my pregnancy which is insane! I had a OB appointment today …

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, …

OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian GelColor Review

The Perfect Spring Pink GelPolish!

I stopped in Salon Centric a couple mornings ago to pick up a bottle of Essie Good As Gold. That was all I needed. But of course I had to check out the entire nail aisle while I was there. And of course I walked out of there with six new GelColor shades. However, I did get two free top coats as well!

Pretty much every store I go in! :((((

I can’t wait to swatch all my new colors—I bought three pastels, a new red, and …

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 …

Darwin. Evolution. Travel. Nails.

A Few Thoughts on Evolution, Adapting, Traveling, and Nails

My friend Jessica, who is also my lash girl and I’m her nail girl, is going on the trip of a lifetime this week to the Galapagos Islands. Not only is she going to the Galapagos, she is going with National Geographic.

If one ever gets the chance to go to the Galapagos, one should go with National Geographic. πŸ™‚

I tried to talk her into the whole turtle/wildlife mani motif…but being the uber stylish hip girl that she is, she opted for a …

Live.Love.Carnaval Spring Nail Art with tutorial

I saw this idea on BioSculpture’s Facebook page and loved it! Luckily, my friend Tennille was game with letting me try it out on her yesterday!

We used OPI GelColor Live.Love.Caranaval which is so fabulous! It’s not quite as bright and fluorescent looking in real life. Kind of in between Cajun Shrimp and My Chihuahua Bites. I absolutely LOVE it though! It applies perfectly too–I did three coats on Tennille which is what I usually do with all my gel polishes so I was totally happy with the results.

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 πŸ™‚

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

Festive and Merry Nails!

I’ve had a fairly busy week and created some cute stuff! A major accomplishment being I did my own nails! I sculpted out a super short tip with hard gel which I was dreading but turned out not being too horrible πŸ™‚

Anyway…here’s a few new photos for you!

And here’s a before and after of my new hands :)))

And the finished product!

All the colors and nailart are done with gelpolish. I used Axxium by OPI to sculpt my new set. I really like OPI hard gels but there are a few …

Hippie Chic Nails

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to do some dreamcatcher nails because every time I see them on Instagram I love them! Maybe because they scared me just a little…there is a lot of little tiny lines and circles involved which is always tedious…but I had a feeling my buddy Tennille would love to sport some fancy hippie chic nails and I was right! πŸ™‚

We used Lincoln Park After Dark in OPI GelColor and OPI Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh in GelColor on her ring finger. …
