Manicure Monday: Matte & Glossy Polka Dots

Manicure Monday: Matte & Glossy Polka Dots

I’m a big fan of matte nail polish. I was never really sure where to go with it. Do you buy a matte color? Do you just get a matte top coat? Do matte top coats work on every polish? Can you apply a top coat over your matte polish? I had so many questions […]

Minute Manicure Removal

Minute Manicure Removal

I change my nail polish as often as I change my clothes. Okay – not that often, but I still do my nails more often than the average person.  When it comes to taking my polish off, the cotton balls can add up.  Until I learned a neat little trick to use only ONE cotton ball […]

Manicure Monday: Monochrome Matte French

Manicure Monday: Monochrome Matte French

A French manicure is always classy. It’s hands down my favorite way to do my nails. I think it’s sleek, pretty, feminine, and elongates your nails like no other manicure can.

Manicure Monday: Pretty & Polished

Manicure Monday: Pretty & Polished

As anyone that knows me knows, nail polish is my favorite hobby, my favorite love, and maybe even my biggest vice. I have more nail polish than I really know what to do with, but I can’t help myself from buying more. I love finding new colors that I’ve never seen before, but that seems […]
