Throwback Thursday #TBT! Nail Art Edition

Hi guys!

I’m just going to do a quick post today on something I’ve been thinking about for a while – Throwback Thursday! We all know and (probably secretly) love #TBT on Instagram, so I thought it would be cool to go back and look at some of the nail art I did way before I knew much about nail polish in general. Some of these are from 145 weeks ago (according to Instagram)!

Here are some of my faves – I must say I like em ;D though I am glad I’ve seen an improvement (click image to see it all up close and personal)

I share my personal tips for: CVS, Walgreens, Target, and Kohl’s below. Continue reading

Unfavourite/Nail Polish Regret: Essie Cashmere Matte (Just Stitched)

Hi guys!

It’s been a while – I didn’t expect how crazy the end of the first year in grad school would be! But, the end is near.

Today I am showing my first nail polish ‘unfavourite’ and regret in a while – and it’s Essie’s Cashmere Matte in Just Stitched.

Now, I know 99.9% of people loathe these… but for some reason I thought I could make it work. You might have seen when I hauled it on instagram a couple of days ago (@kisslantavegas) – well, it went right back the next day. Continue reading

Easter Nail Art

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing my Easter nail art. I would have loved to do more (and better) Easter nail art this year but grad school caught up to me and next thing I knew, I was doing my first ones at 1am on Easter Sunday… (sounds about right for grad school).

easter1 This is just my basic chick and pastel matte look I came up with – I didn’t have anything specific in mind when I sat down, but I just grabbed a few of my cutest pastel shades and went to town with the dotting 🙂

These are the shades I used: Continue reading
