Tropical Gradient

Wow, I have been gone for a long time. So much has happen. I have moved twice, gotten back with the ex, been laid off from my job, and working somewhere new. I have not really painted my nails in a long time , but this new place feels like home and I am inspired again.

I saw this post somewhere else and loved the colors and tried to recreate it my way. Whomever did this I wish I could extend the credit. I had it in my to try folder for so long that I don’t remember what I searched to find it.

Heart Glitter Placement

I can’t believe Valentines Day is only 5 days away. The bar I frequent is also having another Prom theme on Saturday so I get to go  prom dress shopping too.  My original mani was going to be such a cool fancy affair, but I got lazy and messed up my nail so I did the simple and easy approach. I did a red and pink gradient with heart glitter placement with my new polish.

Baby it’s Cold Outside

I’m alive after surviving a 24 hr snow storm. My town received between 3-4 inches of snow on Saturday. I am not a snow person, but the boyfriend convinced me to go out in it with him and we took some pictures while we were out.  My alley where I parked my car is still now plowed so I have been having to get rides to work.

In honor of the snow I decided to do some icicle nails for the first time. They turned out ok, but I could of done more to make them pop.

Rainbow Bright

I don’t know what happen, but I felt a strong urge to do some rainbows on my nails. I didn’t want to do the same thing over and over so I did different rainbow themes on each nails. My favorite nails are my thumb with the gems and my ring finger with the tape mani.

Scattered Seashells on the Beach

Hello All,


I am so happy I am in a nail mood again and am painting my nails more frequently. Don’t worry my life is still a mess, but my nails don’t have to reflect that. I decided to do some beach nails inspired by my new nail polish called Shattered Seashells that I picked up and Five Below.  The mani came out surprisingly well and people knew what it was when I showed them so that always is a plus. I love how the glitter polish looks just like crushed seashells on the beach.

Pink and Red Cheetah Print

I still have not gone out and bought new  tips so  I can do acrylic manicures so I am using the full nails that I had left over from a long time ago. They barely stay on longer than a day, but I can paint them and take a picture before they start popping off.
