Manicure Monday: Minnie Mouse

There’s something about Disney that’s so … magical.  I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t like Disney.  In fact, I don’t even know anyone who is neutral about Disney.  Everyone loves Disney!

Manicure Monday: Dreamcatcher

Since last week’s Manicure Monday was dark and fierce, I wanted to go light and girly with this week’s.  I’ve always been impressed with dreamcatchers.  The premise of a dreamcatcher is that you hang it by your bed to catch any evil spirits or nightmares while you’re sleeping.  Whether they work or not is a […]

Manicure Monday: Gold Cross-Hatch

I’ve gotten inspiration for my Manicure Monday tutorials from my favorite clothes, from holidays, and even from just staring at my nail polish collection.  But I also get my inspiration from one of the most inspiring places of all – Pinterest!

A Beauty Review: Fusion Beauty Prime Results Primer

Fusion Beauty Prime Results Brightening Primer ($42) Helps to even skin and prepare for makeup. When I first started using this primer, I fell in love.  It left my skin with a smooth, velvety feeling.  It kept my makeup feeling fresh all day, and that was exactly what I was looking for in a primer.
