Catching Up


Hey guys! I haven't posted in a while and just wanted to let you guys know what I been up too. Just know if your not hearing from me doesn't mean I'm not doing my nails. On the other day I realized that I been a nail blogger for a little over a year. It's amazing how time flies when your painting your nails. When I first started this journey I knew very little about the nail community. But, over the past year I have learned new skills and met so many wonderful people. What I like most about our community is that its more than just about nails. For some of us its about relaxing after a really hard day or just simply expressing our selves through a form of art. It really warms my heart when someone messages me just to say hello or ask how my day is going. I look forward to what next year will bring to me. Now, moving on to what I been up to. The holiday season is my favorite time of year. I love drinking my Starbucks latte on a cold fall or winter morning, in my opinion it just makes it feel more like Christmas. I have say though, I hate Christmas shopping but I enjoy seeing my family and friends open their gifts. Also, Christmas nails are my all time favorite kind of nail art to do. Therefore, I have been purchasing Christmas stamping plates and polishes. If you would like to check out one of the polishes that I got for the holidays check out this weeks polish pick. In addition, I'm currently waiting on nail mail from Zoya and Pretty Woman that I purchased during Black Friday. When I receive my nail mail you guys will be the first to get all the details. Until then check out some of the manis that I did in the month of November.


Thanksgiving Nails

Okay, so lets start with this one since Thanksgiving just ended. I think this one was my absolute favorite. Any time I do freehand I always appreciate the design more. Just knowing that you painted something with your own hands just makes it more special. This shade is called "Kensington High Street" By Nailsinc. On my accent finger I used "Skinny Dippina Colada" by Zombie Claw Polish. I hand painted the turkey, isn't he cute? I think I shall call him Ed.

Futuristic Nails

These nails are something I normally wouldn't do but I wanted to try something different. I'm really not into aliens but I have to admit these ones look pretty cool. Its a little hard to see but on my accent finger is robotic women who fight aliens from destroying her planet called "Polish". This shade is called "Turn On The Haute Light" by OPI. Stamping plate BP-XL135 from Bundle Monster was used to achieve this look.

Simple Flower Nails

This mani was very easy to do. I applied two coats of "Sultry" By Revlon. Next, I used stamping plate BP-20 from Born Pretty Store for the flowers. Finally, I applied a quick dry top coat. I love this deep blue shimmer polish from Revlon. It also has tiny pink glitter that peeks through it.

JLB Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have my swatches and review of the 4 piece nail lacquer collection set by JLB Cosmetics. I haven't heard of or tried this brand before. While doing research on this company, I found very little information on them. Therefore, I will just get on with the review. I got this polish set from Ross for $5.99. I normally stay away from buying nail polish sets like these because I'm always skeptical of the quality. When I saw how cute these little polish bottles were I thought I would give them a try. I must admit I've never seen nail polish bottles like these before, they remind me of perfume bottles. Although, they are pleasing to the eye the brushes were a little uncomfortable to use. The brush was short and the top of it felt like a door knob. As a result, it was kind of hard to get a good grip on it. But, I've had more difficult times while painting my nails. In addition, these polishes had a slightly strong smell, but after a while it went away. Howeve…

EA Polish Swacthes & Review

Hello everyone! For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you my swatches and review of indie polish brand EA Polish. I've been following EA Polish on Instagram for quite some time. Therefore, when CEO/Founder Ellyse contacted me to do a review for the company, I was very excited! What intrigued me the most about EA Polish is how it came about. After becoming a mother, Ellyse's friends and family started inquiring about her formally fabulous nails. Not only did Ellyse decided to do something about it, she started her own nail polish company. If anyone knows anything about the joys and sometimes woes of motherhood, is me. I'm pretty sure some of you guys can relate. Being a mom can be challenging at times, we have a 1,000 things to do and so little time to get them done. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being a wife and a mother. However, it can become overwhelming to the point where you began to neglect the simple things in life. For example, getting your hair d…

Nail Therapy? Let's get Personal!

Hey guys! welcome to my blog. I started this blog a year ago along with when I first started Instagram(IG). I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the blog and my IG page, so I decided to just focus on having fun with IG. Its been almost a year later and let me tell you, its been one heck of a ride. I have had so much fun meeting nice people, participating in nail art challenges, and experimenting with new nail art techniques. I never knew there were so many other people out there like me who loves nail polish. Some people may wonder why would any one love nail polish so much. Well, I love nail polish because there's not a size on the bottle, I don't have to squeeze into it, it just goes right on my nail. I wear nail polish because it may be a special occasion or maybe it just makes me feel relaxed after a long day of taking care of my son and cleaning the house. Here is a picture of some nail art that I did on January 14, 2016. My son Malachi had to have surgery on the next …
