Born Pretty Holographic Nail Studs with OPI This Isn't Greenland

Partial Press Sample

I like nail studs since they can be a quick addition to your manicure. The following manicure added about 15 minutes to do my entire mani, and for me, that's cool! I also paired it with one of the new OPI Fall colors, so let's get to it.

KBShimmer High-Rise to the Occasion, Ehmkay Nails Collaboration

Press Sample

Today is a great day! It's my father's birthday and later, I'll celebrate with him! My father means the world to me and this year was a milestone for him for so many reasons. I'm so happy to celebrate with him later. It's why I also waited to reveal my collaboration shade with KBShimmer!! The Fall 2017 KBShimmer collection is a special one, and it features 12 bloggers! I was so honored when Christy asked me if I would be interested in this collaboration. Of course! I'm really bad at custom polishes. I just don't know what I want! But Christy nailed my inspiration and I can say, she perfectly brought a special moment to life!

Born Pretty Mood Changing Nail Polish

Press Sample

It's the end of another weekend and I have a little NOTD to share with you! It seems that thermal (or "mood") polishes are coming back something fierce! They've been popping up everywhere. I have one from Born Pretty today. Green is one of my favorite colors and so, that's what I've got.

Alter Ego Princess Rose, Holomaniacs Custom

Press Sample


Friday calls for a purple holo, I think! I think all the Holo-Maniacs customs that I have swatched have been variations of purple holos! That's what the crowd wants, and that's what they are going to get! Well, all of them have been very different, and this one is not exception! Alter Ego Princess Rose is definitely for any purple lover!

Zoya Sophisticates Comparisons

Press Sample

You knew it was coming! I had to pull out some oldie core Zoyas and do a massive comparison post to show you what's truly new and what might be too close for comfort. I won't lie; I feel like I hoard all the Zoyas just for these comparison posts! But I hope my lack of space makes it worth it to you!

Born Pretty Floral Plaid Stamping with Lechat Dare to Wear Modern Muse Collection

Press Sample

I am so in love with the Modern Muse collection! I obviously love to do nail art and cremes are the best for art, in my opinion. The art comes out so crisp! I knew the colors would mesh with the image on a plate from Born Pretty. I loved Felicity, and I really wanted to showcase the color in my art!

Homer Simpson Donut Nail Art

 Partial Press Sample

Happy Thursday! Today is a special Thursday because it's my lovely boyfriend's birthday! I have a tradition of baking him something special every year even though he's a plain cake kind of guy. Well, I baked him a "plain" Funfetti cake, but I'm decorating it by painting Homer Simpson on it! I have to finish decorating it, so hopefully it's not a fail.

KBShimmer Neon Leopard Print Nail Art

Press Sample

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't like anything leopard print except nails! It's sort of like gold. Don't like gold jewelry but I love gold nails! When The Daily Nail posted a neon leopard manicure on Instagram, I commented how I needed to do it! I've done neon leopard HERE before, but I need to do it MORE!

Back to School Paper Nail Art

Partial Press Sample

Monday is Labor Day which means most schools in my area start school on Tuesday. Even though I began this past week (I'm in high ed), I'm still freshly in the back-to-school mood. What's fun about the class I teach in the fall is that I teach an 8:30am (first one of the day) class on Monday to first years. That means I was the students' first college class ever. I take more pride in that than I should 😂😂😂 Anyway, I wore these nails to welcome them to college.
