Manicure Monday: Shark Week

Manicure Monday: Shark Week

I have to admit, when I sat down to start this manicure, Shark Week was the last thing on my mind.  In fact, I really don’t even like Shark Week – and I definitely don’t like sharks.  My goal was to sit down and create a DIY chalkboard nail art tutorial – but after a conversation about […]

Mascara Roundup: 8 Formula Reviews

At any given moment, there are at least ten different tubes of mascaras bouncing around my makeup drawer. There always have been, and I estimate that there always will be. My mascara collection most likely started on my quest to find the perfect formula — and remains to this date because, as we have all probably discovered, […]

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Admittedly, I’ve been getting pretty technical with my manicures lately. From chevron to tribal print, some of these manicures really require a steady hand.  With today’s manicure, that’s not the case.  While the look may have been inspired by the gorgeous paintings of Monet and Cézanne, you don’t need to be a famous artist to […]

Manicure Monday: Chevron Stripes

I look for inspiration for my Manicure Monday designs in a lot of places. Sometimes I think about what events I’ll be attending that week, sometimes I look at what new techniques I’d like to try, and sometimes I just stare at my nail polish collection and hope that something comes to me. Today’s Manicure […]

Manicure Monday: Neon Brights

Happy Manicure Monday, beauty lovers! I wanted today’s manicure to be fun and different.  Something that looks difficult, but really isn’t.  You can’t get a complicated-looking manicure using only one color (I don’t think!), so the key to this mani is using a lot of bright colors that stand out against each other.  Love this […]
