Top 10 Favorite Nail Products

I know I post a lot about my favorite products, so I hope I don’t sound like a broken record, but I love hearing about what other nail techs are using so I thought I would share what products I am using and loving at the current moment!

Top 10 Nail Products
1. OPI Infinite Shine Polish System

This is OPI’s new high wearing polish line and I LOVE it! It lasts forever on toes and my clients can get a good week out of a manicure with Infinite Shine. My favorite …

Baby Love!

My beautiful baby Oliver is now six weeks old so I suppose my maternity leave is over…time to get back to blogging! πŸ™‚

Here is my sweet boy at six weeks…smiling and laughing all day long! πŸ™‚

I’ve actually sat down to write an update several times in the last six weeks and each time I do a tiny human being needs me NOW. As a matter of fact, he is calling my name this very instant…

Six Hours Later…

I’m back and hopefully can finish this post!

Everything is going great with our …

Lucky Labor Nails at 40 Weeks!

I can’t wait to meet this little boy!

But I’m afraid it probably won’t be in the very near future…

Here I am in all my pregnancy glory πŸ™‚

Tomorrow is my due date and I’m still very much pregnant. That’s ok I guess my little baby just isn’t quite ready to meet us yet. πŸ™‚ However, this weekend would be a great weekend for him to decide to come! I am doing everything I can to induce labor on my own…well, everything except castor oil. I did that with my first …

Cinco de Mayo Nails!

I have to be completely honest…I Googled Cinco de Mayo because I wasn’t quite sure if it was definitely Mexico’s Independence Day or not. Here is the definition Wikipedia so kindly generated…

“Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States[1] and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El DΓ­a de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).
It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West …

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!

1. Becca by …

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, …

Even nail biters can have pretty nails!

This is a common question/problem I see a lot on nail forums…what do I do with a nail biter? My poor friend Kendra is always my model for this problem but I just want her to know I was once a biter and I don’t judge. πŸ™‚

I usually do acrylic on Kendra mainly because I don’t trust gel with length and we usually do a longer nail on Kendra. But I told her acrylic fumes are no bueno right now with my pregnancy so she said, “Just make my nails …
