Nailed It

I don’t have a lot of time to do my nails or go get them done, but for some reason I can’t stop buying nail polish.  The colors are so gorgeous and a small little bottle is just the perfect little pick me up or a small way to treat myself.

Have you seen this yet?  I think it is the greatest idea ever.  Just a little glitter on the tip of your ring finger.  The aqua nails are called Mermaid Nails.  I love them just for that. For a quick little how to —> click here.

What is your favorite polish color at the moment?

Some of my current fav’s are:

Lilacism | Essie —> I wore it here
Turquoise & Caicos | Essie —> a summer time fav, perfect for mermaid nails
Superstar | Deborah Lippmann —> I wore it here
Demure Vixen | Essie —> my current fav for a neutral that I can schlep on in an instant
Vermillionaire | Essie —> perfect orangey red –  try with gold glitter
Dutch Tulips | OPI  —> my all time favorite red

    Oh, my gosh. I hardly ever paint my nails, either. But I buy Rimmel and Wet N Wild nail polish like it’s going out of style! I just can’t pass up the pretty colors. Gotta wedding to go to tomorrow. Thinking of doing hot pink on the toes and pale blush pink on the fingers. We’ll see.

    I think this trend is so cute. I love the idea of adding a little sparkle to a small section of your nail. Just reading your blog for the first time, I love it. You have great photos!
