Toes Tuesday – @opi Pedicure

Nothing makes me feel more like traveling is in my future than a gel polish pedicure! For local events, I tend to stick with a traditional polish pedicure, but when I’m out of the state or country, I don’t want to have to worry one bit about chips on my finger or toenails and that’s why I opt for gel! This time around, I went with @opi Lost My Bikini in Molokini. Nail details: ๐Ÿ”˜ From the @opi Spring 2015 Hawaii Collection ๐Ÿ”˜ Medium purple ๐Ÿ”˜ Creme finish Shoe details: ๐Ÿ”˜ @dolcevita Derby Sandal ๐Ÿ”˜ Go to the link in … Continue reading Toes Tuesday – @opi Pedicure

Mani Monday – @opiโ€™s Big Apple Red

Details: ๐Ÿ”˜ @opi GelColor in Big Apple Red ๐Ÿ”˜ Shine-intense OPI GelColor nail shades cure in 30 seconds under a LED light and last for weeks ๐Ÿ”˜ You’ll be on Easy Street with this creamy red ๐Ÿ”˜ Made in the USA If you love red polish, what is your go-to brand and specific shade?

Mani Monday – @opi Dancing Keeps Me on My Toes

I don’t normally wear neutral (yes, I consider this a neutral) nail polish on my fingernails unless I am doing so because of a work function.

What it claims: ๐Ÿ”˜ OPI and Disneyโ€™s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Collection offers offers 12 limited edition nail polish colors and three perfectly coordinating glitter shades for every holiday event and wish list ๐Ÿ”˜ Soft, shimmering snowflake perfect for any Snow Queen ๐Ÿ”˜ Wear this beautiful … Continue reading Mani Monday – @opi Dancing Keeps Me on My Toes

Wear Test Wednesday – @kissproducts Gel Fantasy Nails

I have always loved the look of long nails. However, I have rarely been able to achieve them naturally because as soon as I have spent weeks coddling them so they grow strong, one breaks. Plus, at some point, it gets difficult to do every day tasks if they get too long. So, I thought, after seeing a few rave reviews, why not flash back to my childhood and buy fake nails at the drugstore that I apply myself! I picked up the @kissproducts Gel Fantasy Nails in the color Tight Fit ($7.99 at @walgreens). I chose the Short Length … Continue reading Wear Test Wednesday – @kissproducts Gel Fantasy Nails

Support Saturday – Nail Tutorial

I had the idea a while back to test out tutorials from bloggers I follow and admire. It forces me out of my comfort zone, while showing support for those accounts I think deserve it! For my first post in this series, I attempted to replicate @polished_and_designedโ€™s marble nail tutorial! What did I learn through this process? I have a much greater appreciation for the skill it takes to nail nail art (pun intended)! I got through step 1 just fine, but all the other steps that required a creative eye and a steady hand were not where I excelled. … Continue reading Support Saturday – Nail Tutorial
