Now, as much as I’m into my nails, I’m not really into crazy nail art. I do mix it up a little bit, but overall, I’m pretty simple when it comes to my manis which surprises people, but it’s just my style. 🙂
This weekend, my cousin is actually getting married [SO EXCITED!!] so I’m opting out of a festive red, white, and blue mani in exchange for a polish that compliments my dress – but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been oogling the fun designs that have been coming across my social timelines!
Here are a couple of my favorite, simplistic, but still ode-to-America manicure picks!
Did you find a cute mani design for the 4th? Link it below!
I hope that everyone has a safe & Happy 4th of July weekend!
Did January literally fly by, or was that just me?
I’ve been up to a LOT & am trying to recap everything in a few different posts. Naturally, my first one is dedicated to my favorite topic – nails! I’ve had a few January manicures that I wanted to share –
1) Sally Hansen – Shell We Dance. I rang in 2013 with this color! It’s an all time favorite, and I was craving something neutral after my dark and dramatic holiday nails. This fit the bill perfectly.
2- Zoya -Loredana. This is a matte polish, however, I used a clear topcoat since I knew that my cuticle oil would destroy the matte film. This was such a fun color!
3- Gelish – Sugar Daddy. Sometimes you just crave BLUE! I swear, every few months I really want blue nails. I got so many compliments on this manicure. Sugar Daddy is one of my favorite blue hues!
4- Forever 21. I happen to love Forever 21 nail polishes (even if they don’t have names lol)! They’re cheap, wear pretty well & have an endless variety of colors. Whenever I have the urge to cut all of my nails off – red is my go to polish of choice!
5- Gelish – Night Reflection. LOVED this color. I cut my nails even shorter before this manicure, but I wore this polish longer than any of the others. The eggplant shade is a Winter favorite.
6- Gelish – Double Shot Espresso. I’m currently wearing this polish…going on day 6 and my nails still look flawless! I wanted something dark, but not black…or purple…or blue. So this brown was perfect. It reminds me of Sweet Chocolate, minus the shimmer! I’m hoping this one lasts me a while!
I am going to the Cayman Islands in a couple of weeks…
…and I plan to do a really fun bright pink/orange/yellow/green manicure before I leave! I haven’t decided, but I’m looking forward to something a little more upbeat. I’m thinking Gelish Tiki Tiki Laranga or Shake it til you Samba!
Here’s a little Spring color to brighten up the dreary Winter day we are having on the East Coast. I had a dream the other night that I bought a pair of fuchsia skinny jeans, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since!
I have red, pink, grey, and blue skinny jeans that I adore, but I’m ready to expand to my collection for the Spring/Summer months. I’m officially on a hunt for pairs of fuchsia, peach, yellow, and greens!
Gap, Express, J. Crew, and Pac Sun have all been recommended to me by some lovely twitter followers.
