Finding Your Color Palette - I felt the importance of writing this post because there’s nothing that irks me more than buying a bottle of nail polish and when you go to use it the color does not look good on you.  Perfect example: 
Essie: Baguette Me Not - ‘Baguette Me Not’ is from Essie’s Summer 2017 Collection.  It’s a shade of lilac with pink undertones.  ‘Baguette Me Not’ is feminine with an edge.  The color is
Glow Sticks - Neon Manicures.  They’re too good.  A neon manicure is a favorite of mine just because the manicure speaks for itself.  You don’t have to do any crazy designs or add any extra textures to the manicure.  Its greatness stands alone.  So what do you do when you have a fun vacation just days away?
Unfinished Perfection - I’m always looking for new ways to create a manicure.  Something that’s fun, different, and unique to my style, but still appropriate for a professional setting during the week. I came across this manicure on
Revamping the French - Growing up I was obsessed with a French manicure.  It made me feel grown up and sophisticated.  My mom always put a sheer opal essence nail polish over the French tip to give my manicure some extra sass.  However, the older I got I realized

Paint Box Nails Inspiration - I really wish I could remember how I discovered this little gem of “nailspiration”.  I was super juiced when I discovered it, a little bummed to discover their only location is in New York, and pretty confident in knowing
Festival Season 2017 - It’s that time of year: festival season.  AKA where everyone does THE MOST for the gram.   I myself am not a festival season type of girl.  It’s not my thing and that’s completely ok.  However,
