Manicure Monday: Easter Edition

This wrap set is SO adorable, it is called Just Hatched, and the¬†chevron really spoke to me! I wasn’t sure what to do on my nails for Easter, so I’m really glad I found these! It’s too bad they don’t repeat designs from year to year, so I know they won’t have these again next Easter. Maybe I should’ve bought a few… They are still available!!! Anyways, I removed last week’s wraps with my coconut oil as usual, pushed back my cuticles, washed with soap, pre-trimmed the wraps, and applied…

Manicure Monday: Jamberry Challenge

It is odd that St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are a week apart this year, so this past week I wore some wraps that I thought complimented both holidays! I also thought it would be a fun idea to take a picture everyday for five days to see how the wraps hold up, or don’t ūüėČ I have the results for you!!!

Manicure Monday: St. Patrick’s Day Edition

I need to gush about how much I love Jamberry wraps around the holidays. Yes sure they have amazing nail lacquers and gel polishes, but, as much as I try to do the cute designs such as hearts, anchors, christmas trees, santas, spider webs, skeletons, turkeys, four leaf clovers …. and sooometimes¬†succeed, I can never ever do my own right hand, because, I’m right handed (obviously). I loooove decorating nails according to the season, and each time a holiday rolls around, I stock up on each holiday wrap that Jamberry…

MANI MONDAY: Essie’s Imported Bubbly

Essie’s Imported Bubbly is one of my “go to” polishes. You won’t be surprised to hear that I began this look with Sally Hansen’s Hard As Wraps and finished it with Seche Vite’s Top Coat. Imported Bubbly with everything and is a nice shiny nude, not too gold, not too pink, but just right in the middle. In the photos, you can see one was taken in direct sunlight and one was taken inside, in indirect sunlight. The only (minor) downside to this polish is that its really hard not…

Manicure Monday: Jamberry Eerie Nights

The countdown to Halloween begins!!! 12¬†DAYS LEFT! This week’s manicure brings you right into the Halloween mood with a graveyard design. Jamberry has the coolest wraps including some of these that look like metallic foil. This wrap is called Eerie Nights and was featured in my first Jamberry Giveaway of the month, featuring Johnny Depp! The¬†foil/metallic wraps¬†seem to be a little trickier to apply, but I’ve noticed that minimal heat and massaging¬†the wraps down with your bare fingers work the best (versus more heat and applying with the Jamberry tools,…

Manicure Monday: Jamberry Announcement & Fall Jams!

I have some really exciting news – I am now a Jamberry Consultant! That’s right, that means you can come to me for ALL THINGS JAMBERRY. When I first heard of this product, I would have¬†put money down¬†that these “stickers” would not stay on my nails for more than 24 hours. I am one of the people with the bad habit of using their nails as¬†tools¬†instead of¬†accessories¬†so nail polish, gels, shellac, you name it, doesn’t stay on my nails for very long. Boy, was I wrong!!! To keep this post…

Manicure Monday: Jamberry + Essie

Jamberry and Essie go great together. When I use Jamberry wraps on just accent fingers it makes my wraps last longer also. Today I have three fingers wrapped with Jamberry’s Mint Green Chevron wraps and two fingers with three coats of Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos. I used alcohol and a bonding agent under my jamberry wraps but nothing on top. Under the Essie I have Nailtiques Formula 2 and Essie Gel Setter on top. I hope you like it!! Happy Labor Day! ¬†¬†First time customers receive a free gift!!! Click…

Manicure Monday: Birthday Edition!

My birthday was Thursday, July 30th, so this Mani Monday is a special birthday edition!!! On my birthday, after work, some of my girlfriends and I went to get birthday mani-pedis at LUV Nail Salon. They were so good to us – we all got to take home our polish we used, they served us cupcakes, and they did my manicure while I was in the pedicure massage chair! Ahhhhh it was so nice ūüôā I chose an OPI polish, which is my second choice of nail polish brands, after…
