So in walks Sally Hansen Argan Oil Color Therapy Nail Polish in #130 Therapewter. & she’s special. We’re kind of a thing now. We’re getting serious.

One of my favorite things about the KBShimmer Office Space Collection (see my full review & swatches here!) is that everything goes together. These shades are all effortless & interesting- but there is definitely a theme! I haven’t ton any freehand stripes in awhile…so this mani made sense! Keep reading to check it out! [Read more…]
Office Space came out in 1999 & gave everyone who has ever stepped foot into an office a laugh. If you’ve never seen Office Space- don’t worry. You can still fall in love with these uniquely interesting neutrals! The names are (as always with KBShimmer) perfection. The formulas are unparalleled. & the irony of these actually being office-safe for many employees makes it even more fun.

I totally fell off the nail art bandwagon there for awhile. I’m a firm believer in beauty being fun & for some reason I fell into a nail art funk. Have you ever had those? I really haven’t had much experience with reverse nail art stamping. The Zoya Urban Grunge Collection was easily one of my favorite cream collection in a long time so it made sense to throw something together to practice! [Read more…]
When I was perusing the Colour Pop website for the first time all I knew is that I was in a buying mood. I bought a lot! The Colour Pop Fetch Please Collection is the only set I purchased though so I figured I’d start there! This set includes one matte single eyeshadow, a pressed pigment duo, an eyeshadow duo, & 3 matte lippie stix. Keep reading to see my thoughts, swatches, & an eye look! [Read more…]
Zoya is constantly coming out with new & interesting finishes- & today I have another one to share! This collection is a transitional selection meant to prep our palettes from winter to spring. I quite like this collection as a palette- very much so my kind of cleanser between nail art & neons. This collection has a satin finish & Zoya calls it “low-sheen” which I hadn’t heard before. Keep reading to check out the swatches! [Read more…]
Are you a 50 Shades of Grey fan? I’m actually not…but I am in love with the collection OPI put out in dedication to it! I’ll have a review & swatches on all 6 shades soon but first I thought I’d share some fun nail art. I may not know much about the books but I do know about Jamie Dornan’s Suit & Tie that graced the cover. Check out my recreation using the OPI 50 Shades of Grey Nail Polish Collection! [Read more…]
This #A2ZNails weekly series has been so fun so far. I love that you guys love it- repetitive? Yes but factual. After last week & my B is for Bold nail art I was looking for something a bit more fall or even winter. The theme this month is Copy Cat so there were tons of options here…but I decided to go with this idea that I pinned awhile ago & just loved. (ps if you don’t follow me on Pinterest you’re missing out- my nail obsession isn’t just restricted to my blog!)
So basically I kind of took her fabulous idea & made it dark, vampy, matte (until I added top coat…), & of course multi-colored because I have no self-control. I personally love it.
So my base color is Zoya Dovima which was lovely. You let it dry completely & then add your striping tape kind of randomly focusing at the tips. I then sponged on each colorful shade focusing again on my tips. I think the outcome is so easy & so beautiful. Obviously her design is way more awesome-ly in your face color-wise but this just feels so fall! My pointer finger (red) is Zoya Posh, middle (purple) is Zoya Savita, ring finger (green) is Zoya Veruschka, & the pink looking color on my pinkie is Zoya Harlow.
In the end I decided to add a topcoat because…shiny! Plus it makes those shimmers really flash. Please ignore the obvious pet hair on my pointer. #that’smylife In the end I really love the design & I barely had to think about it- just pretty much came together!
So what design would you copycat? Next week’s design will be D for Dark, any ideas? I’m kind of at a lost- I need some inspiration! Remember to check everyone else out below!
