This is how most of my hair issues have been resolved this past year: Continue reading Polish of the Week: (Blue & BANGS!!!)
It’s a little late, but I still wanted to do a Polish of the Week for today, and since I went to Zion National Park with my boyfriend, I planned ahead to take a couple pictures of my nails in some epic locations…..as you may have noticed, it didn’t exactly go as planned. Continue reading Polish of the Week: (wrecked and sweaty)
I took a rare trip to Walmart yesterday….yes, I shop at Walmart sometimes. I’m going camping next weekend and I needed some supplies (you know, flashlight, canteen, anxiety meds…the usual stuff). So of course to make me feel better about having to go to Walmart on a Saturday, I had to spend 30 minutes perusing the cosmetics section. That’s where I found Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lively Lilac (420)! Continue reading Polish of the Week: Easter & [subtle] nail art
I found this blue and a cool highlighter yellow at the dollar store for $1 each so I can’t say I was expecting much. I’ve been thinking of getting a cornflower blue, and although this was a few shades darker than that it really struck my fancy. Continue reading Polish of the Week: (3.29.2015)
This week has been great as far as productivity goes but it’s mostly been behind the scenes. Taxes: done. Buying a new computer: done. Researching UV light for an upcoming post: done. That’s how most of the week has gone.
So, today when I got up I was still sitting in that behind-the-scene vibe. I didn’t feel like putting on makeup and I certainly din’t want to do my nails or put out a post about it today….that was until I remembered that I was going to use this really subtle nude pink this week because I finally got white polish to put on underneath it. That, and the green from last week got old to me. I was picking at it by Thursday.
I’m in love, really and truly:
Pink: OPI’s Privacy Please (NLR30) I’ve had this for a while now, but it wasn’t as opaque as I liked. I came across some really cheap polishes at the dollar store close to my house, and I finally bought white! It made a HUGE difference when I layered it underneath.
White: Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in White On (300). It’s a little goopy, but not too difficult to spread evenly.
Gold: OPI by Gwen Stefani’s Love. Angel. Music. Baby. (NLG28) If this one sounds familiar, it’s because I’ve featured it on Polish of the Week before. I love gold, but I’m not always confident that I’m pulling it off. Not today, though. Even with my imperfect free-hand lines I have nothing but love for this look.
This morning, my boyfriend and I went on a hike up Grove Creek Canyon and it was magical. It was cold, but not too cold and no one else was out. There was a waterfall, and I thought it would be the perfect moment to serenade Dalton with TLC’s Don’t Go Chasin’ Waterfalls and a pelvic thrust dance. Continue reading Polish of the Week: St. Patty’s + Spring Equinox Edition!
I almost didn’t do this post today. It’s been a busy week and a busy day…in a really good way. Usually when I pick a polish, I pull them all out, look at them next to one another in different combinations, wish I had a different tone of some color, then settle on something I’m not wild about.
Today, I didn’t have time for that. Continue reading Polish of the Week: go to Dim Sum Plum
This week I came across a blog post about a Gustav Klimt-inspired polish line featuring this gorgeous gold color. I was more than a little bit in love. The author mentioned how her pale skin tends to look a little splotchy when she paints her nails gold which happens to me too! Continue reading Polish of the Week: gold and taupe, L’amour and Klimt
I’m really stoked about how my nails turned out last night while I was slightly tipsy, in the dark last and….I hate to admit this, but I was intermittently getting up to cook dinner.
Also, I don’t think I’ve attempted to do nail art successfully since my days waiting for appointments during beauty school. Continue reading Polish of the Week: Valentine’s Day Nails
