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 …

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! 🙂 I really hope I am chip free …

Lots of fun nail art!!! Feathers, chevron, houndstooth, glitter!!!

I’ve been doing some fun girls the last few days and wanted to show off their cute nails!

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 …

Ashley’s Spring Mani

I can’t believe it has taken me so long to post this fun mani I did on Ashley’s beautiful nails! I kept thinking I was going to Photoshop the pictures….but I just finally gave up on that thought and decided to edit them in iPhoto instead…I promise I will make your hands PERFECT one day Ashley! Even though they are perfect already…well maybe if it weren’t for Crossfit they would be a little more perfect 🙂

I wanted to do a spring mani and I wanted …

Spring Nail Art–Venique with OPI Gargantuan Green Grape and Cinapro Professional Nail Art Dipping Dots

It’s late and I’m laying in bed with race brain going through nail pictures on Instagram and decided to post a few recent pics of some nails….did I mention it’s late? 🙂

OPI Oz Collection–When Monkey’s Fly, I Theodora You, Glints of Glinda–with hand painted stripes and Art Club studs over Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel

Oz Collection by OPI Nail Art

My beautiful sister Mandy stopped by yesterday for a real life official nail appointment. This is an amazing accomplishment for us because we constantly make nail appointments for her that we never keep due to kids schedules or random life interferences. We painted her nails last week and they actually lasted fairly well though, all thanks to the wonderful product Seche Vite!

After she had removed her own polish because I didn’t want to mess up my new navy and mustard yellow mani 🙂 …

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 …

Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel—I bought it and can’t wait to try it!

I can’t wait to try my new Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel! I was supposed to do my sister Mandy’s nails tonight but she passed up her chance for hot yoga….what gives???? 🙂

I’m really excited about the Brisa Lite system and am really crossing my fingers that it’ll perform as described. It claims that your gel polish will hold up for three weeks with the the new system. And the removal is supposed to be fairly easy.

So for professionals—you will use the new Brisa Lite base coat, cure, then the smoothing …
