This makes me smile. And so do L’s Bollywood nails! Great, now I’m craving samosas and have the urge to dance around my office–not that it’s ever a bad thing!

Fun Nail Friday!

Looks like it’s another movie themed nail week with the release of Pixar’s first ever prequel: Monsters University!

For once, I can’t wait to go back to school! 🙂

Fun Nail Friday!

It’s finally Summer Blockbuster Season and I could not be more excited!

I’m most excited for Man of Steel although I’m sure you can’t guess why.

My friend and I pulled together our “Mani of Steel” looks for our favorite day in Summer 🙂

I’m sorry…I think I need a moment to recover.

Enjoy your weekend. I know I will! Okay, I’m done. 🙂

Fun Nail Friday!

Every now and then I start feeling very confident in myself, and I troll Pinterest looking for something to replicate! Usually it never ends up as badly as these Pinterest Fails but it’s never quite as perfect as it seems online.

SERIOUSLY? Show me the person who got time fo' dat, and I'll punch you.

Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.

So here’s my take on a popular Pinterest nail trend. The great things is, the pin has the instructions built right in! How could I possibly mess this up?

And my version:

Not terrible…right? I need to find me a more reliable, sturdy nail brush for the intricate designs I want to practice!

Have a great weekend!

I’m feeling a little more than homesick this week, so I thought having some cheery pineapple nails would really help the cause. I think it’s working!

Fun Nail Friday!

I am so confused.

Late last week and early this week, the weather in LA was like this:

So naturally I got into a Summery mood and painted my nails like this:

swirls

swirls = summer. just fyi

But then the day after I painted my nails the weather started being like this (not as sunny and 70 degrees):

So I just don’t even know what to say to you guys right now. And they say Seattle has the highest rate of SADD. :-p

Have a great weekend!

 

Fun Nail Friday!

This one’s for the Moms–

The very ladies that stayed up with you when you were sick, that bought you your first pair of jellies, that hid your cell phone bill from your dad, that went prom dress shopping with you, that comforted you when you tried to shave your legs for the first time, that signed all your school papers, that kept all of your secrets, that saved you the best desserts, and that loved you NO MATTER WHAT. 🙂

Have a great weekend & if you’re lucky enough to be able to hug your mom, do it.

Lashes At A Price

How many of you have ever had eyelash extensions? Don’t you feel so fab in them for the week until they fall off, leaving you sad and lashless?

You might want to return those Groupons for extensions, because I just read a scary article about this trend!

As is the case with almost any beauty trend, eyelash extensions pose a risk. Experts say that eyelash extensions have obvious benefits, but carry hidden risks, such as infection, allergic reactions, irritation, and loss of your actual lashes. Yikes! Apparently, some adhesive formulas include formaldehyde. They shouldn’t, but still do. I think I’m a formaldehyde hypocrite. I love what it does to my hair via Brazilian Blowouts, but I don’t want it anywhere near my eyes.

When I had eyelash extensions done last year before a big trip, I loved what they did. I could head out for the day without needing to do anything to my face, which obvi is an amazing feeling. But, about 10 days later when the extensions started to fall out, I noticed that I had very little natural lash left. It was yucky, man. And unless you choose to get your lashes touched up, they’re gonna be short and stubby for a few weeks! Eyelash extensions are expensive, and therefore not really my cup of tea. I enjoyed it while it lasted, though.

What are your thoughts on Hollywood’s most recent beauty scare?

Fun Nail Friday!

Happy Friday!

Other than a happy springtime mani, nothing quite gets me through the day like a celebrity arrest video. Reese Witherspoon may be America’s sweetheart, but you should know that she is first and foremost, AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. When she and her husband were pulled over for drunk driving, she got on her soapbox and started scolding the policemen for their cruel intentions. Good thing they didn’t make her walk the line, because homegirl was just not havin’ it. You know, if she was arrested in sweet home Alabama and not in Georgia, her charm may have worked. Oh well. Hopefully she learned something from her time as Elle Woods and won’t be spending four christmases in jail. Enjoy!

Anyway, here’s what I did this week with my sweet, sweet freedom:

Stay out of trouble, kids!
