Manicure Monday: More than Glitter

Manicure Monday: More than Glitter

Sprucing up a basic manicure is simple – just add a glittery accent nail! Whether it’s because I’m too lazy to decorate every nail or because I don’t like to over-complicate things, I’m a big fan of the accent nail. It helps to elevate your manicure without going overboard – and without spending hours to […]

Manicure Monday: Glitz & Glam

And we’re back! I’ve hardly had time to slap some clear polish on my nails in the past few months, let alone create a manicure worthy of a Manicure Monday blog post. Between finding a new job, moving, and planning my sister’s wedding, it’s been a crazy couple of months. But I did it – […]

Manicure Monday: Liquid Sand

I’ve always been intrigued my texture polishes.  How cool is it that you can create nail art just with a swipe of a brush? From metallic polishes and feather polishes, to crackle polish and velvet. It’s amazing how easy nail art can be! My newest texture obsession? I’ve recently fallen in love with Liquid Sand […]

In what was possibly the most perfect gift for me, I was given a Michael Kors Nail Lacquer gift set, complete with Runway Star, Rock Star and Superstar – three glam shimmery shades.  I immediately fell in love with the colors and the opacity of the polishes.  I had to create a rock star manicure to […]

Well, mark your calendars for February 9th because Peter Pilotto is coming to Target – and it’s looking like it will be a sweet collaboration.

The Perfect Red Lip

The perfect red lip is arguably the most iconic beauty trend.  Stars from Marilyn Monroe to Rihanna fell in love with red and perfected the look.  In my opinion, the products to create a perfect red lip should be staples in any woman’s beauty closet.  It’s such a bold look that it speaks for itself […]

When it comes to holiday manicures, you can go as simple as sporting the colors of the season, or you can go full-out cheese. I’ve tried everything in between – from simple, red nails for Christmas to tracing out a glittery tree with tape. This year’s Christmas manicure is a little more simple, but still […]

If you haven’t been able to tell by now, I’m obsessed with nail studs.  I love how easy they make it to add a pop of color and texture to your manicure.  I received some more studs in this month’s Nail Art Society kit – this time, it included small gold squares – and I […]

For me, manicure inspiration can come from so many places. My manicure is my way of showing how I’m feeling, following trends, and expressing myself.  Sometimes I tie it into current events, holidays, or even what I’m wearing. The inspiration behind this week’s manicure? Fashion.

There’s nail art, and then there’s nail art. It can be as simple or as complex as you make it.  You can do a simple French manicure or you can create a complicated design.  This week’s manicure? It’s pretty complicated – but that didn’t stop me from trying to tackle it.  If you’re patient enough (and […]
