Manicure Monday!

Happy Monday gals! It’s been a pretty long day but I wanted to share my new manicure with you. It is Mani Monday! This week, I decided to keep things short and sweet with a nice file down and two coats of Zoya Gie Gie nail polish. I was actually a little lost on what I wanted to do with my nails this week until I started rummaging through my old Ipsy Glam Bags. I’ve really been finding some hidden gems in my stash! (more…)

I’ve always been a NARS gal but the upcoming Adult Swim summer collection has me screaming, “Here NARS! Take my money!” Mr. Francois must be hard at work over there because this collection is just gorgeous. I want pretty much everything! I’m still trying to control my crazy impulse buying but all of that may fly right out the window when Adult Swim releases in stores next month. Have a peek! (more…)

I told you guys I’d be back with a Sugar Rush manicure! I ditched the super bright yet beautiful Sinful Colors Pull Over polish from last week for an all glitter look. I can’t rave enough about my love for the new Milani Gold Label Sugar Rush polish. It’s just so pretty! There’s chunky flecks of green, yellow, coral, pale pink, gold and iridescent glitter that looks like a party on my nails. It’s not your typical glitter polish that’s super metallic and blingy though. Sugar Rush has more of a confetti feel to it that makes it more fun than flashy. The formula was super easy to work with and dried pretty quickly too. Sugar Rush makes me want to try all glitter manicures more often because it was such a breeze to apply on my own and didn’t slow me down one bit. If you’re a glitter gal like me I recommend you hightail it to your local drugstore and get your Sugar Rush on too!

Happy Monday! It’s such a lovely day here in Michigan that I can’t even think about the Monday blues. Especially not with this bright, fun manicure! I’ve been itching to bring out my extra bright nail colors and spring themed glitters. Now that it’s finally starting to feel like spring I’m ready to go all out! (more…)

MAC Maleficent Collection Update!

Remember that Maleficent themed collection I was telling you guys about? Well it’s almost here! I was so crazy excited to see the what the collection would be like and we’re finally getting some pictures and info. I must say, though, I’m pretty disappointed so far. I missed out on the amazing Venomous Villains collection so I had my fingers crossed this would be just as great. Ehh not so much. The collection looks like a bunch of permanent stuff and pale powders that probably won’t suit women of color so it looks like a big ol’ skip for me. Take a look!

MAC Proenza Schouler Collection

When MAC announced they were teaming up with the fashion geniuses behind Proenza Schouler the beauty world went wild! Proenza Schouler is a New York based women’s fashion line known for their mix of bold colors and patterns so it was only right that MAC chose to partner with the brand for their couture collection this year. I’m not all that familiar with the brand but because this collection features limited edition packaging and gorgeous ombre blushes I’m all over it! Honestly, who could resist? Proenza Schouler won’t be available in stores until April 3rd but expect to see it popping up online within the next couple of weeks!

I know it’s technically not Monday anymore but we can pretend for a few minutes, right? That’s the spirit! Last week, I decided to go a little bright with Milani’s Cupid Touch. This week, I went for a more subdued nude look with a hint of glitter to spice things up. I just love glitter!

Manicure Monday!

Happy Manicure Monday! I know this isn’t the best day of the week but I hope everyone is enjoying the day anyway! I’m still under the weather but I wanted to get out of the house and pamper myself a bit with a nail appointment. I recently picked up the Milani Cupid’s Touch polish and couldn’t wait to use it! It’s a pinky lavender shade that’s just so girly and cute! I asked my nail tech to give me a trim since my nails have been growing like crazy lately and he made them super sharp. I always love the razor sharp look on others but I’m just so clumsy! With my more rounded tips I was still poking holes in some of my clothes. I’m a little nervous of what damage I might do duty these things lol. Hopefully, I’ll get used to them soon! What’s on your nails this week?
