Mani Monday: Mermaid Shine

Happy Monday everyone!

So I survived the weekend, justttt barely. I can’t wait to recap all of it but until I get my photos edited, you’ll just have to sample my Mani Monday. It’s been SO long since I’ve done one, and trust me, my nails were in need.

So I know I can’t stop talking about OPI Mermaid Tears, so I’m sorry it appears yet again. But I loved this mani because the Essie Shine of the Times almost makes my nails seem like mermaid scales! Do you see it too or am I completely nuts? I’m seriously in LOVE with every Essie luxeffect, Dawn from Vapid Vixen gave me this one is a fabulous swap!

I’m sorry I don’t have more for you today! Don’t worry, pics of the weekend are coming (complete with me in a sombrero).

Also Fantasy football females, our draft happens tomorrow night so get ready! Make sure you have your team created by tonight at the latest. I’m sending out an email today 🙂

How was your weekend? Tell me about it!

Mani Monday: Baseball Nails

Hey there!

So I was having such a great weekend in SF until I realized…my wallet was gone. Sunday after brunch, we were headed to the Alemany Flea Market when I peek into my purse and realize my wallet is missing. We retraced all our steps  from the point I remember having it (Umami Burger, Muka Wine Bar, the hotel and San Jalisco for brunch) but no luck. I was SO upset. Especially because the LAST place I lost my license was San Francisco a year ago so SF has claimed 2 of my licenses! Bah humbug. Our last hope is Muka which isn’t open Sun or Mon, so Tuesday at 6 pm we’ll be calling just to check! But my hopes are low.  😦 Besides that SF, was wonderful and I’ll probably be recapping it later this week.

Luckily for me, I have my passport to serve as ID for my flight to Utah tonight. I’m excited to be on vacation for the next 6 days but the loss of my wallet will definitely hang over my head a little. I’m going to try to shake it off as best I can since there’s likely nothing I can do about it! I’m also a little nervous because this is my longest flight by myself and I don’t really like doing anything solo. But I will be cheering my brother and his team on in Utah, so I decided last night to do a festive accent nail for Mani Monday!


Essie: Peach Daquiri for the nails and Target: Sinful Colors for the baseball

First of all, I must give credit where credit is due so let it be known that Rob helped me with this manicure! I was feeling frustrated with the red stitching and honestly this was probably the 7th time I put the white base on but I love how it turned out! Turns out he has quite the steady hand! Haha I swear the things I ask that poor man to do, he is a SAINT. He’ll probably be sorry that he let me in on his nail art skills.

I’ve also grown quite partial to the SUPER cheap Sinful Colors section at Target. The nail polishes are only $1.99 and the white was actually really thick and covered well. I’ll definitely be buying more of those for nail art and accent nail colors!

Happy Monday!

Mani Monday: Set in Stones

Happy Monday everyone!

Every once in awhile, something comes along that just rocks your world. For me? Essie’s Set in Stones! Fact about me: I have slight OCD tendencies and I like to have just one brand of everything. So prior to this Essie, I only bought OPIs. But Set in Stones was too good to pass up and I love it! It’s the perfect glitter for accent nail or for doing a glitter french manicure. Snag one today!

Color: OPI Argenteeny Pinkini/ Glitter: Essie Set in Stones

The best part of this mani is that when you start chipping, its super easy to just paint the tips again with Set in Stones. And it doesn’t require a lot of precision either! Good for a starter mani for sure.
