You’re So Sweet You’re Giving Me aToothache

See Ya Summer! 2018 Favorites

My mind is slightly blown by the realization that Summer is technically over. One minute you’re melting in 90 degree temps and the next, you cannot get into a sweater fast enough. I thoroughly enjoyed my Summer and as much as I hate to see it go, I’m undoubtedly eager for Fall.

4th of July Manicures (the best of the best)!

Hi Ladies!

July 4th is literally right around the corner; between planning a fun BBQ bash, selecting the perfect RW&B outfit, and Pinteresting cute dessert ideas, we must make some time for our nails!

If you’re like me, you like to acknowledge the holidays on your fingertips- sometimes I go all out, and sometimes I opt for something a little more subtle!

A lot of people have been posting their 4th of July manicures on their blogs, Facebooks and Twitter pages lately, and of course I’ve scoured them all. While I enjoy looking at everyones creations, and wish I could post them all, I have selected the very BEST of the BEST to share with you for some inspiration.

Take a look:

Daily Something created this mani with Nicole ‘Listen to your Momager’ (blue), ‘A-England Perceval’ (red), Konad White (stamping) and China Glaze ‘White on White’. SO CUTE!
I Am Definitely Addicted created this patriotic look with China Glaze ‘Hey Sailor’ and ‘First Mate’
R3 Daily put a fun twist on the usual stars & stripes!
All Lacquered Up created this look with Milani and China Glaze polishes!
This mani from Pink yoU Rock is hands down my favorite for a number of reasons! It’s a gel manicure, with silver glitter, hand painted blue stripes, and a 3D heart. I love how cute, clean, and FUN this manicure is!
My current mani: Gelish “You’re So Sweet You’re Giving me a Toothache”

My Gelish mani is going 5 days strong, and I hate to have to remove it early, but all of this inspiration has me itching to create a fun 4th manicure! Maybe I’ll see if someone will let me borrow their finger nails to design a little something 😉

I want to see your 4th of July manicures! Tweet them to me @_AmandaBella 🙂

Have a safe and Happy Holiday everyone! 🙂

Help Me Choose My Memorial Day Mani!

HELLO 🙂

How  is everyone doing? I am so excited to get away for the holiday weekend with some friends, and am looking forward to a stress-free trip! I recently visited my local Sallys Beauty Supply and was thrilled to see that they were selling all six colors in the Gelish Candyland Collection for a reduced price!

As you know I already own the two pink shades ‘Sugar N Spice & Everything Nice’ and ‘You’re So Sweet You’re Giving Me A Toothache’, but I was hesitant to purchase the others at the time because Gelish polish is a bit pricey, and they weren’t really  colors that I would wear very often. However, now that they were on sale, I couldn’t resist!

I picked up the remaining four colors in the Candyland Collection; ‘Orange Cream Dream’, ‘Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss’, ‘You’re Such a Sweet-Tart’, and ‘Sugar Daddy’.

I figured that this weekend would be a great time to try out one of my new polishes… but I need you to help me choose which one!

Below are pictures of each…take a peek and let me know your favorite!

Orange Cream Dream
Don’t Be Such a Sourpuss
You’re Such a Sweet-Tart
Sugar Daddy

I like them all in a different way, and am totally stumped on which to go with. I’m going to give myself a manicure tonight,  let me know before then what your favorites are in the comments below, or tweet me @_AmandaBella!

What color nailpolish will you be wearing for Memorial Day weekend? 🙂

Bringing My Wardrobe to Life!

I am completely guilty of having a pretty dull wardrobe- lots of grey and black! With this recent Spring/Summer weather we’ve been having I decided it was time to step it up! I told myself that from here on out, when shopping,  I would ONLY buy colorful clothes. I put my maxxinista skills to work at Marshalls, TJ’s, some consignment spots, Forever 21, and H&M over the past few weeks.

Here are some of my recent, *colorful* purchases…

I've been on the hunt for colorful skinny jeans and I've finally found the best pairs of fuchsia and peach! Only yellow and green left 🙂

New shoes! 🙂

A pair of camel suede slingback Guess heels ($22 at Marshalls!), and a brand new pair of gold cork Charlotte Russe wedges (on sale for $10).

Lots of chunky new necklaces…

A new bag, belts and hair accessories…

Head band $2.80 Forever 21, Bag $15.50 Forever 21, Nude/Orange belt $3.50 H&M, Red belt $2.50 Forever 21

I wore this new beautiful fuchsia dress with a beaded gold necklace to a recent work event.

Forever 21 dress- I think it was only $15!

I’ve even started to break out my spring polishes!

New "Gelish" colors! Left: "Sugar N' Spice and Everything Nice" Right: "You're So Sweet You're Giving Me a Toothache"

I’m currently wearing this pastel blue color, I’m loving it!

Forever 21 Polish- No name :-/

How does your wardrobe and shopping habits change when the weather warms up?
