It’s December! You know what that means – GLITTER!!! Last year I made December my Glitter Season because of the holidays. This year, I’m doing the same thing. I started the season with SinfulColors’ Queen of Beauty (silver glitter with clear base) & @julepmaven’s Lauren (a nice highlighter pink).
My original idea for my accent nails was a complete fail so I decided to use the silver as my accent nails. As most of you know to make taking the glitter polish off a little easier, you use a clear polish. Instead of clear, I used a nude neutral.
I highly dislike when I take pics of my nails and the color looks different in the pictures (they never look better than in person imo). Anyway. Happy polishing, happy holidays, happy #manicuremonday

Every once in a while I like to clip off the claws and start new. Since I haven’t had a professional mani in a while I decided why not start over today? I did a massive cleaning today, so it only made sense. I was going back and forth with this gold polish from L’Oreal or this pale pink polish from Sally Hansen. I’m not exactly sure why I chose the L’Oreal polish but I did. It’s called “Because you’re worth it”. And it was. Color looks great- 2 thin coats does the job. Dried fast. No topcoat used (I was doing a quick polish, but frankly, top coat isn’t needed in my opinion). I usually pass by the L’Oreal polish section because I never knew if they were worth the price, but since I’ve tried this polish, I might need to take a second look.
Something I like to call “painter’s pallet”. I think this is going to be my end of summer tradition.
1. 2 coats of white polish
2. Dab blue polish using q-tip
3. Then yellow
4. Then pink
5. Seal with clear polish
I used blue first bc it was the only one that wasn’t a neon polish. Try to avoid using too much of each color bc it’ll muddy up the polish.
One of my favorite #manicures to do. #nailenthusiast #polish #nails #nailpolish
Just because I’m on a polish hiatus because of work doesn’t mean you all are. I walked into Sephora today to find out they’re having a sale on their Sephora by O•P•I polishes and sets! I love Sephora by O•P•I because the polishes last a full two weeks, are not too thick, and dry quickly. I went looking for their quick dry top coats but all the base/top coats were sold out. 50% off of a product like this is an amazing find and you all should head to your nearest Sephora!
I guess I should let you guys know that my new job has totally rained on my polish parade. I walked in on the first day with aqua blue polish and they told me I had to take it off the next day AND that i couldn’t have any polish on at all. Needless to say I was very
depressed sad. I went polishless for a week and my nails lost all health (clear exaggeration). They broke and just looked horrible. And with me being the polish rebel I am, I decided that bare nail life was not for me so I’ve been wearing a very light pink/neutral color ever since. I’m not happy because I have to stop my birthstone polish “challenge” and wear these boring colors lol. I’m going to find a way at some point to have fun with thifs but for now, this is what I’m dealing with.
Had to pus SOME type of color on… This bare nail life at work was not the business
It’s that time of the week again!!! #manicuremonday! This week (for Amethyst Week 4) I’m wearing @julepmaven’s Charlotte (Boho Glam). I have mixed feeling about this color but I loved the fact I only used ONE coat. Charlotte is one of the colors from #Oprah’s Favorite Things. One thing I love about Julep is the fact they are 4-free (free of toxic and harmful chemicals. Head over to Julep and get your first box for free using FREEBOX at checkout here.
My @julepmaven Oprah’s Favorite Things box FINALLY came!!! (2calls and a misroute later )
I’m so excited!!! I’m thinking I’ll wear the lavender one next week! #julepmaven #julep #nail #nailart #nailpolish #mani #beauty
Rocked my @sephora neon #mani today to my interview. Yup, I sure did! #manicuremonday #manicuremondays #sephora #beauty #nailpolish #nails
Photo is blurry because I was on the train.
When the new year started, I clipped my #nails because I wanted to start off with a clean slate. Now a month later and they’re back to where they were when I clipped them. All thanks to my handy dandy coco oil ($6 Trader Joe’s). As most of you all know I use coco oil for my hair (I also mix it in my moisturizer with some aloe vera when I wear my hair up) but I usually use coco oil for my nails once a week. I decided to try and massage it into my hands & nails every day. I love it and it works! I now use it for almost everything (hair, nails, skin, I tried it for teeth whitening, etc.)
