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: 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 […]
Manicure Monday: Neon & Glitter

It’s a simple statement that can make a big impact. And with Halloween, there are so many different designs […]
Manicure Monday: Polka Dots!
For this week’s Manicure Monday, I was inspired by Pinterest. I’m not quite sure who pinned what, but I know I saw polka dots and needed to try it. Who doesn’t love some good ol’ fashioned polka dots? I wasn’t sure how to achieve this look without clumping gobs of polish onto my nail (which […]

For those of you that love fun nail art, but may not be the best at doing it yourself, this manicure is for you! You may be thinking that there is NO WAY you could do a leopard print on your own nails, but I promise you that it’s actually quick and easy. And I […]
Be Radiant at Prom!
I remember contemplating my prom makeup like it was yesterday. Cliche? Maybe. True? Definitely. I wanted to coordinate my makeup look with my dress, which isn’t necessarily a bad idea, but it isn’t always the way to go. My advice to all you ladies getting ready for prom (I apologize if your prom already passed!) […]
