windex blue

March 24, 2014 § 2 Comments


not very romantic sounding, what i’m calling this color of blue, but it so reminds me of the classic household cleaner which i don’t even use anymore. funny how colors can do this!

i do recommend this nice bold color which is sally hansen’s blue me away 130 because it’s a nice alternative to black for the summery months and is universally flattering for all skin tones.

half moon glitter manicure: how to

February 20, 2013 § 6 Comments


love it or hate it, this trend looks to be sticking around for quite a little while. i’m going to pair the glitter with nude next time, understated-glitzy is a good name for it i think.

you will need:
• a good high-density glitter polish in silver
• a nail polish is a pretty pastel color {i used revlon 211 charming}
• half moon manicure sticker adhesives
• a shiny clear top coat

1. trim and buff nails
2. apply the sticker adhesives to the base of each nail following the natural half moon shape
3. apply a few coats of the glitter polish onto the exposed half moon shape area only
4. allow to dry completely
5. gently remove the sticker adhesives from the nails
6. apply a few coats of the pastel polish to each nail, starting where the glitter line ends
7. allow to dry completely
8. apply the top coat to seal in, protect and add shine

and there you have it, pretty pastel + glitter nails = a perfect spring 2013 manicure! xoxo

the fact that i’ve never taken an interest in the half moon mani is beyond me, but that has all changed as it’s now one of my favorites!
