Stella Chroma Oh Crikey, February Polish Pickup

 Press Sample

As I mentioned yesterday, Polish Pickup is all about 90s TV for February. There is so much content there! Stella Chroma chose The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, for inspiration. This was definitely a show I would tune into as a kid. How he interacted with animals was amazing and of course, I was so shocked when he died. This polish totally represents what he loved: Crocodiles!

KBShimmer The Chosen One, February Polish Pickup

 Press Sample

This month's theme is 90s TV! As someone who grew up on 90s TV, this theme is perfect. Of course, everyone is so diverse in their choices and the theme really leads up to have so many fun polishes. KBShimmer is on the reflective polish train, and here's a moody one to fit the theme!

Glitter Star Nail Art

Partial Press Sample

Hi all! I know I have been fairly quiet on the blog front lately. It is definitely a combination of broken nails, freezing cold weather, and a lack of motivation to get stuff up on the blog. For example, the manicure in this post was the one I wanted to do for new years. I just love the colors and then when I did it, I hated it. I was not sure whether to bother posting, but you know what, here it is! I actually got a lot of compliments in person so I consider this a Monet (better from afar!).

Snowflake Stamping with Stella Chroma

Press Sample

I shared the Polish Pickup Offerings the other day and they release today! I actually enjoy swatching less and getting to do art with each polish. When I saw the Stella Chroma polish, I got neutral snowflake vibes! Well, that's what I did!

Favorite Nail Arts of 2021

Press Sample

Hi all! Of course, I originally wanted to post this on December 31st. But like everyone it seems, I am sick and have been since 12/30. So better late than never, right?! I always like to take a look back at what I did for the year. This year, I posted a lot less and that seems to be the trend. Still, I averaged about 10 posts a month and I think that is healthy for me and my needs and wants. I wore my nail polish a lot longer this year and part of that has to do with a new job and completing another masters degree (almost there!). So my schedule has changed and so has my ability to do art. So let's take a look at some of my standouts...according to me!
