Mani-Monday { Pink & Silver Glitter }

Who doesn’t love a little glitter? The silver accents nails were just enough for my taste. I really liked this sandy-glittery by OPI from the Mariah Carey Collection (in the color ‘It’s Frosty Outside’). I would definitely recommend it as a silver glitter in your collection. The effect reminds me of the Louboutin Fifi Strass. But until I can get a pair, I’ll settle for the same look, but on my nail.

The pink is the Zoya ‘Dot’ polish that I received in my February Glam Bag and I really like it. It’s a great polish and a great shade.

Doing my nails is a fun and relaxing way to tune out after a long day. It’s important to find activities that you enjoy and that help you decompress. I’m learning that taking time to take care of myself is so important, because when I feel recharged, I have even more energy and love to put out into the world.

What are some things that you enjoy doing on your alone-time?

Mani-Monday { It’s Never Black & White… }

I was really excited when my boyfriend surprised me with this top coat (‘Meteoric’) from the Formula X by sephora collection (it looks like the name was changed to ‘chaotic). The black & whites specks are quite a unique than any other top coats I’ve seen, and adds a really nice twist to a simple manicure. Yes, always with the accent nail(s)! That makes the mani less childish and more unique. This pink Essie colour in ‘Fiji’ has already been featured on the blog (here) and is still one my faves.

What do you think? Any top coats that I could try?

Mani-Monday { 2014 }

I’m back!!! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts, but life has been crazy lately. I’ve also been doing a lot of work and soul-searching and I have some exciting new ideas and projects lined up for the blog that I can’t wait to share with you very soon!

Here’s a fun, very girly, manicure that I did last week. It was the first time that I’ve tried Quo nail polish (that my boyfriend surprised me with randomly one day) and although I loved the color, my nails started to chip the next day! I’ll have to give it another try with another base coat. The glitter is Nicole by OPI and it’s from the Selena Gomez collection, and it’s called “Inner Sparkle”. Can you tell I’ve been a bit obsessed with sparkle polish lately?

Mani-Monday { Golden Barbie }

My two favourites: fuchsia & gold! I did this manicure for a wedding I went to over the weekend (while I was studying mind you….painted one nail, wrote a page, did another nail, read another page….life of a student!). I wanted a pop of colour with my dark blue lace dress and went for my favourite colour, fuchsia! The gold crackle was to match my jewelry and add a touch of fun to the nails.

What do you think? Do you like it?
