Happy Labor Day!!
Now I know there is a rule out there that says not to wear white after Labor Day. I’ll be honest, when I was little I thought it was a crime to wear white after Labor Day but then I just found out it was a small rule someone out there made. Well I’m here to break that rule with this cute manicure that I think is the perfect mani for the Summer to Fall transition. Keep reading to see my cute mani and which nail polishes I used! Enjoy!
For a while I had wanted a white nail polish and I finally got one in August. As soon as I got it, I started thinking of cute mani combos and I thought of white nails with a gold, chunky glitter nails. Continue reading
One fun fact about me is that I have only even gone to a salon two times to get my nails done. Both those times they where to get acrylics, once when I turned 15 and the other time a year ago. I swore off acrylics after the second time because I realized that I love to switch up my nail color very often and taking those nails off is painful!!
I’ve never gone to the salon to simply get my nails painted because I absolutely love painting my own nails and catching up on my shows while I wait for them to dry. Over the years I have slowly gotten better at painting them and by now I have a pretty good collection of nail polishes so I wanted to share my top 5 favorite nail polishes with you, maybe we even share the same favorite!
Nothing makes me feel closer to the bloggers or YouTubers I follow than when they share a little bit of their personal lives. While I understand that everyone needs their privacy, there are some stuff that when these people I follow share, I feel more connected to them which, in turn, makes me like them a bit better.
I have decided to change from My Weekly Instagram Inspirations to Sit Back Sunday. In this weekly Sunday series, I want to not only share with you my favorite pictures from Instagram, but also share a little bit about my week with you all. I feel that this way, you all can get to know a bit more about me and we can connect on another level. I hope you enjoy this series!
This week I started the Spring semester, I am taking two classes and a lab on campus and 3 classes and a lab online. This is the most classes I have ever taken in a semester and so I have been a bit stressed out because I want to make sure that I don’t miss any due dates, especially in my online courses. Even though I know this semester is going to be a bit stressful, I am glad to be taking classes again because I tend to get lazy when I have nothing to do.
As some of you may know, I love to paint my nails especially for holidays! For this Christmas I wanted to have my nails simple but still with a bit of flare.
I decided to go for bright red nails with gold and red glitter on the accent nail. Keep reading to see what nail polishes I used to create this Christmas Mani. Enjoy!
For these nails I prepped with my Formula X polishes.
The bright red nail polish I used over all the nails is Ruby Ruby by Sinful Colors.
For the accent nails I mixed a Red Glitter polish by e.l.f. Cosmetics and Summit of Style by Essie. I accidentally painted the accent nails red, and I didn’t want to remove the nail polish, I made sure to not put a lot of the polish on but still make sure I had enough glitter chunks. I did this my placing a blob of the glitter polish then I took off the access and spread the polish I had on the nail.
I then finished it off my putting a top coat on my nails.
I hope you like this nail design and I thinking is such a simple yet cute mani!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! Here are my favorite pictures from Instagram this week. Enjoy!
Makeup: I really like the vibe of this picture and the makeup featured is awesome!!
This past year I got really into nail art and I love to do cute things for the holidays. After looking for inspiration on Thanksgiving themed nails, I came across one that I really liked and did my own twist on it.
So they are not perfect but, hey, I am still new to this nail art thing. I really like the nails and the most complicated part of it was the detail on the pilgrim’s hat.
It is almost Halloween and I am excited. I am not going to dress up but I was watching Halloween nail art tutorials by Cutepolish and I had to try the bloody nail design since it looked pretty easy to do.
This is my take on the bloody nail art. I am obsessed!
I used three nail polishes for this look. Ruby Ruby by SinfulColors which is a bright red. Cinna-Snap by Sally Hansen, I used this one to darken the bright red polish a bit. All over my nail I am wearing Satin Ribbon by Pure Ice which is a very sheer pink. I already had this on and I decided to keep the color on because it looked pretty natural. I also used a dotting tool that I got from Jafra.
I am so happy with how my nails came out and they are perfect for Halloween! Below is the Cutepolish video, she features a total of 10 Halloween nail art looks.
What is your favorite Halloween nail art?
I love painting my nails and I love the fall season so when putting the two together this fall mani came to mind. I love this look because of the sparkles! I love it and it can, in a way, represent the falling leaves this season.
For this mani I used my Formula X System to prep my nails. Continue reading
I decided to paint my nails are more autumn look and loved the way it turned out so I wanted to share it with y’all. I went for a slight autumn look since it is still pretty hot and I want to save all the actual autumn look for when it is chilly outside!
For this look I used the Formula X System by Sephora for all the prep. This system works great and keeps my mani lasting for over a week!! Continue reading
