Fun Nail Friday!

Hey you!

I must say, it’s shaping up to be a very good Friday indeed!

I decided to really bring it this week, since Easter comes but once a year. Please enjoy the fruits of my labor:

That bunny is SO smug. He loves that it took me 4 tries to paint his damn face!

I also just learned how to paint little roses, which by the way are SO easy, so I’m really feeling good about myself right now. (Just let me have this, okay??) 🙂
One of the good things about this season is the abundance of pastels. Especially pastels + glitter? LOVE!!!

I hope you enjoy your Easter weekend and make the most of whatever reason you celebrate the season (whether it be celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ or celebrating bottomless Mimosas at your local brunch haunt).

ALOHA!

Have you ever tried Mood Polish? This one is blue in the sun and purple in the shade. So cool!

Wow, does that leave me to be this week’s resident dark cloud? I’m wearing my favorite OPI shade, “You Don’t Know Jacques!” so I’m okay with that 🙂

AN found a “Jacques” twin at Target! Anyone ever try e.l.f. [eyes lips face] brand polish? Good to know there’s a cheaper way to get my favorite shade 🙂

Fun Nail Friday!

Hello there!

Since I’ve been eyeball-deep in Wedding nonsense lately, I thought it would be only fitting if I tried out some options for my “Something Blue.” However, as usual…I think I need to calm down. After all, Kate Middleton would never wear these crazy chevrons on her wedding day…right?

Speaking of things to do…guess who’s going to Ireland in just two short weeks!

Don’t worry about packing warm clothes, girl, just let the Guinness do all the work for you! I wonder if C.H. is gonna find her a pot of gold? I know L.D.L. hopes she does!

Mimi Comes to OPI

OPI announced that in January 2013, Mariah Carey will be getting not one, but TWO OPI nail polish lines!

Did you hear that? It’s the Divasphere exploding.

Gosh, I wonder what kind of names Suzi & co. will come up with. I mean, I’m positive both lines will just be 50 shades of pink, so here are my suggestions:

“Hello Kitty CRAZY!”

 

 

“Why U So Obsessed With Me?!”

“If You Have An 8 Octave Range You CAN Wear Sweats & Heels”

 

“Vision of FAB”

“Anytime You Need A Knee”

“Well, Where Did You Think All This Divaness Came From?”

“Once Upon A Ring Pop”

 

 

“Miminem”

“I Answer Only To Your Butterfly Highness.”

 

“Is My Unicorn Parked Out Front?”

 

“Keep Your Money Close”

Can’t wait!!!

 

Products We’re Excited For!

Let me tell you the secret of the world…

It’s nail polish.

Polish. Nail polish.

I’m quivering with anticipation at the mention of OPI’s newest collection, due to hit shelves this October to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Bond & the newest movie “Skyfall”. Can you believe it’s the 23rd Bond installment? Actually, I can.

These colors are lookin’ pretty damn dangerous to me. From left to right: The Spy Who Loved Me, Casino Royale, You Only Live Twice, Die Another Day, Skyfall, GoldenEye, The World Is Not Enough, Moonraker, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, The Living Daylights, Live And Let Die, & Tomorrow Never Dies.

Have you also noticed the lack of pink polish in this collection? Like, where’s the “Pu**y Galore” shade, eh? Come on, OPI. For England!

Now go away, I’m having a daydream in which Daniel Craig is painting my toenails.

Fun Nail Friday!

There’s only so many ways you can do your nails at home, so when I see a cheap DIY trend worth trying, I semi freak out.

Welcome to Office Supply Mani 2.0 featuring none other than our sticky friend SCOTCH TAPE!

It sucks trying to draw/paint straight lines on your little nails, so why not let our friends at 3M do the heavy lining for us? Choose a base color (I went for Revlon/Mad About Mango) and accent color (I used OPI’s Glitzerland).

Paint your base coat on, let dry. Then, arrange your scotch tape into whatever design you want! This was hardest for me. I find it hard to KISS (keep it simple, stupid).

Not-so-pro tip: Don’t layer on the coats of polish. I found that my polish bubbled up a bit after drying. When it finally did dry. Took FOREVER, even with my China Glaze fast dry top coat. Even though I like the mango/gold color combination, Glitzerland might have been too grainy or thick of a polish to choose. I should probably also mention that I have debilitating nail OCD but that probably has nothing to do with it.

Here’s what I came up with:

Super cheap, super easy, super scotchy.

Have a great weekend!

Fun Nail Friday!

Happy Friday!

Well, this FNF is very dear to me, because my boyfriend & I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary. Yay! Hearts and flowers  are all that’s going through my mind right now, so it’s no surprise this sentiment is reflected upon my nails.

Not-So-Pro tip: I used OPI’s “Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh?” which normally looks like zombie flesh on its own. I added a layer of glitter and it snazzed it RIGHT up. It really does look fabulous in person.
Not-So-Pro tip 2: Sally Hansen nail art pen in Pink is the only good color I’ve found so far. All others are very opaque and runny.

Spotify has got my friends and I nostalgic for songs that used to make us lose our shit. Such as…

N SYNC HAS GOT THE FLOW! Oh God. We were embarrassing…

Have a lovely June weekend! 🙂

Fun Nail Friday!

WOW! It’s been half a years worth of Fun Nail Fridays, as my WordPress account helpfully reminded me. What better time to tackle the trend that’s been sweeping nail beds across the country?

I call it Half Moon Friday! Which makes sense, because there’s gonna be a half moon in our sky sometime soon. Tomorrow, I think. Anyway, enjoy! What colors would YOU use? And have you tried this nail trend before?

Colors: Nail - OPI "You Don't Know Jacques" and half moon - OPI "Glitzerland"

I also used my new China Glaze Fast Freeze Quick Dry drops, and am happy to report that they work beautifully. I can’t give you an exact count on how many minutes it took for my nails to be bone dry, but it was QUICK. It’s way faster than letting them air dry, which is perfect because the second I finished painting my nails, I had to pee, which ALWAYS happens. This time, no smudges! Hooray for technology!

Oh, um, and we have a last minute addition. I think someone’s still drunk from Vegas… 🙂
