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, …

Easter Basket Ideas

Can you believe Easter is only 12 days away! I remember going through my son’s calender back at the first of the year and marking off all his vacation days and thinking, “Easter Break is so far away!” I had just found out I was pregnant. Once we reached Easter I knew the baby was just right around the corner. This year has flown by!

How do you celebrate Easter? Do you have some fun plans in the making? We are going to go to my little sister’s house in Pioche …

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 a …

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 …

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.

Get Your Feet Ready For Sandal Season!

I know other parts of the country are still in the throes of winter but just in case you think you might get a chance to wear sandals soon, I thought I would throw together a few tips to get your feet and toes looking pedi perfect!

Step 1–File Dry Skin

My favorite way to do an at home pedi is to start with dry feet, place a towel under your feet to catch the mess, and gently file away dry skin. This is my favorite foot file. It’s super cheap so …
