Britney and Justin nail decals mani


You may not have seen me here for a while, but I have been posting some manis on my Instagram and facebook page so... I wasn't completely away! 

Today I have a super cute mani featuring some more nail decals from one of my faves, Sara M Lyons, that she made for the online shop Emerging Thoughts. She did a 90s themed set of decals which has illustrations of many memorable moments from that decade. Being a 90s kid myself, I had to order these, and combine the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake ones together for this mani you're about to see... It only makes sense, right? 

I absolutely love how this came out! I decided to try to work on my free-handed nail art skills on my thumb nail, and pull the whole look together. In case you want to order these nail decals, the Britney and Justin ones are part of the "Totally 90s" nail decal set sold on Emerging Thoughts, and the hearts are from the "3 Bad Kitties" pack found on Sara's website.  

So, what do you think about this look? Does it take you down memory lane a bit? It did for me! See ya next time!

Sephora Formula X Ugly Holiday Sweater nail appliqués

Hi, everyone!

Today I have some super cute nail polish appliques from Sephora perfect for this time of the year. This is also my first holiday-themed mani (I know...I'm late to the party). During one of my last trips to Sephora, I browsed through the sale section and found this set of two designs of appliqués for only $5... It was too much of a deal to leave the store without. Check out the cute ugly holiday sweater 
-inspired design in the pics below. 

I absolutely love these. They are made from real nail polish, which is always a win with me. These are so festive, and perfect for any holiday party. 

I can't believe thi is my first holiday mani so far... I will have to try to get some more in, for sure! See ya next time :)

Sally Hansen "Mint Tint"

Hello, everyone! 

I have a super quick post to show you today. Remember that I recently picked up some nail goodies that are on sale at CVS? Well, here's another one of the products I picked up that day from Sally Hansen. Here's one of their textured polishes in "Mint Tint". 

I wish the camera picked up the shimmer that you can kind of see in the bottle, but not so much on my nails. I used two coats of this polish, that evened out just how you see it above by the second coat. When I grabbed this one, it was marked at 75% off, so I thought it was a good textured polish to add to my collection for the price. Another color from the Sugar Shimmer line that I like is "Sugar Cloud", a light blue that has more obvious shimmer on the nail. 

So what do you think about this one? I love a pretty mint green color any time of the year. 
See ya next time :)

Incoco Nail appliqués in "Bonfire Nights"


Today I have a quick post featuring some cute tribal Incoco nail polish strips. I took advantage of their Black Friday sale and picked up some designs that I had been wanting for quite some time. Check out "Bonfire Nights" in the pictures below! 

I know we're in the holiday season now, but I just wanted to pull out one more look that reminded me of lazy Fall nights. And besides, tribal will always win in my book... Anytime of the year :)

So, how do you feel about these? Are you in full holiday mode with your nails yet? See ya with a new post soon!

Sara M Lyons Nail Prints in "Happy Meal"

Hello, everyone! 

I have a super cute nail look to show you today. You all know I recently discovered artist Sara M Lyons and became a huge fan of her nail decals. Today I have some full coverage decals to show you in a super cute burger and fries print. Check out how these nail prints came out on me in the pics below. 

How you use these nail prints is actually quite simple. You cut out the right nail shape you need, place the decal on your nail (there is adhesive on them, so they stay right where you place them), submerge in water, and lift the paper backing away. I tried using full coverage decals before, and I had some trouble keeping them from sliding off after dipping them in water. The fact that Sara's have a sticky side to them really made applying these unbelievably simple. I absolutely love how these came out, and the burger and fries look so cute! It is recommended to wear these over a light colored polish, so I painted on a generous coat of my favorite white polish (Sinful Colors "Snow Me White"), and was ready to go. Finish the mani off with top coat, and you'll be ready to turn heads with these super cute prints! Sara has a handful of prints to choose from, and you're sure to see more of them on me in the future. 

So, what do you think of these? Food-themed nails are very popular right now and make for a fun look. See ya next time :)

Sally Hansen Salon Effects in "Disk-O-Queen"


I have a really quick post for you today. During one of my latest trips to CVS, I noticed there was a considerable amount of beauty products on sale, and I decided to go for my go-to Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish appliqués. I picked up a couple, including "Disk-O-Queen", which you'll see in the pictures below. 

I filtered the pictures a bit so the shine from the glitter could be more visible. As you can probably see, the  glitter is very spread out, making my nail a bit visible underneath. This is probably the most sheer nail appliqué I've used from Sally Hansen, but I think it ended up looking quite nice overall. What do you think? 

I have some really fun looks coming up on the blog soon, and I can't wait to show you all! I'll see you with my next post later this week!
