Rainbow Lines!

Hey! How is everyone? I can't believe it's almost September! That means my 2nd Blogiversary is coming up! I need to start brainstorming some ideas for that post...

Summer is my favorite season so September mostly just reminds me that summer is ending :(

Good thing I have some bright rainbow nails to show so you can still pretend it's summer!

I did these for my recent trip to Maine, they held up pretty well for the entire week. My plan for these in my head was a little different than the way they came out, but I love them. They look a little Tie-Dye and that is just fine!

Splatter Paint Nail Tutorial Collaboration!

HHEEEYYYYY! Guess what?! I have an exciting collaboration to share with you today! Have you guys heard of Nailpolis? They are an online "Nail Polish Museum" and they have a magazine page that they featured me on. My splatter paint nails from last summer are one of their top liked manicures, so they asked me if I would collaborate with them on a tutorial. Basically I did the nails, took the photos and sent them off. They just posted it and I'm so excited to share it with you! I love the way it turned out, my nails, the photos and the actual tutorial! You should totally go check it out!

White Pink & Gold Tips!

Hi everyone! Sorry for my long absence, I've been on vacation in Maine! I had a fab time and I'm ready to post some nails for you.

I did these nails a while ago and for some reason I didn't love them. I don't even have top coat on them in these photos because I took it off right after, haha. I actually liked them, but they looked odd from a far and I was doing them for the Beyonce/Jay-Z concert and I didn't think they weren't flashy enough. So I went with the rainbow glitter ones.

I used a makeup sponge to dab on the white polish and added pink polka dots and some gold glequins.

Rainbow Glitter Tips!

Whoops, I let over a week go by without posting again! Sorrryyyy! Yesterday was my birthday though, and we've been puppy sitting my Aunt & Uncle's new Collie pup, so it's hard to get anything done with a little cutie running around! If you follow me on Instagram I've posted a few pictures of her!

So these nails were super easy. I went to the Beyonce/Jay Z "On The Run Tour" at the beginning of July and felt like I needed to channel my inner Yonce with some super fab sparkly nails. Also I had never used my OPI Rainbow Connection polish. So I did a glitter gradient but applied it with a makeup sponge so the glitter was super concentrated and the clear base kind of soaked into the sponge. I think that's how I'm always going to apply glitter from now on.

Aria Night Out Nails!

Hi everyone!!

I have some Las Vegas inspired nails for you today! I was asked by Vegas.com to create a look I would wear on a night out dancing with my girlfriends at Aria's nightclub, Haze. I loved all the purple in this photo they have of the club, so I used a bunch of purple polishes and added some black and gold in a V shape (not intentionally for Vegas, but hey it works!) #AriaNightOut


I wish I was more into nail art when I actually did go to Vegas! I definitely would have worn something like this. I guess I'll just have to go again!! Have you ever been to Vegas?

Neon Ombre Nails!

Hi there! I have a bright neon summer mani today! Just a simple ombre gradient. I bought a bright green Essie and an orange China Glaze recently and I had to use them together! So I did a gradient, and added some yellow in between them. They were of course hard to photograph, so they were much brighter in person.





I used:
  • Essie: The More The Merrier
  • Illamasqua: Rare
  • China Glaze: Metro Pollen-tin
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat
