Press Sample

Good morning! The weather went from kind of chilly and 50 on Sunday to  95 yesterday and today. To say NYC is unprepared is an understatement haha. I've been playing with the summer collection from Morgan Taylor for a few weeks with my reverse stamping and my gradient dry brush nail art, so now I've got my full review of these colors.

Born Pretty Geometric Water Decals with Fair Maiden Daring

Press Sample

Hello All! It's a cheery Monday for me. This week is the last semester with my students. It's always bittersweet after working with many for a year, but then I think about next semester and the new faces I (hopefully) inspire. To start of the week, I'm all about second chances. I shared these cool Mondrian-esqu water decals a few weeks ago, and they fell apart on me. So I wanted to give the other set a try!

Ehmkay Nails at Polish Con NYC

Partial Press Sample

Hi all! Unless you're living under a serious boulder, you knew Polish Con NYC happened last Saturday. While I didn't attend as press since I was working a table, my blogger side came running out and I decided to try and do a little press review!

Unfortunately, many tables weren't ready. Some didn't mind and let me take candids (which I love!) and some said no and wanted me to come back, so if you see some missing, that's why. That's the nature of these events! I have a small window to run around to tables and took what I could! Some, I literally just missed :( By the end of the night, many displays were either depleted with stock or destroyed by the hundreds of attendees haha.
