Easter Mani #1

Hi all!

Today I am just going to be sharing my first Easter themed manicure of this year. Easter is in 4 days so I think I might squeeze one more mani in before it’s over.


This year I decided to go a bit simpler than I typically do. I chose a light mint base (Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet), did simple white dots on one finger, and little carrots on another. For the dots and carrots I just used a dotting tool – you can use anything you have, a bobby pin, a toothpick, you name it!

There’s my little guinea pig, Benny! Carrots are his favourite snack so he did not hesitate to take a bite right out of my nail polish :’) I tried to fix it a bit in the 2nd picture.

Last year my Easter manicure was more intense and included 6 colours (plus black and white) and a cute baby chick. You can check it out here if you’d like.

Hope you are doing well! Please share your Easter manicure ideas with me!



Easy Prom Nails for Every Dress (at home!) – DIY Prom Manicure

Hi guys –

Prom season is upon us! I can’t believe another school year has gone by, and that it’s now been FIVE years since I went to my senior prom… insane!

I did my nails the other day to try out a new polish I got, and I thought how pretty these nails would look for prom. They’re super easy, you only need 2 or 3 polishes, depending on which size glitter toppers you own.

I used purple polish and silver glitter, but you can definitely switch this up to match any dress, give a different pop of colour, or when it doubt, go with a nude nail polish for your base.

These are the nails I did:


Polishes Used:

Essie Play Date (purple)
Sinful Colors Queen of Beauty (fine silver glitter)
L.A. Colors Art Deco Silver Glitter – this is a skinny nail art brush polish, I found at my local dollar store (chunky silver glitter)

 For this look, all you need is:

  1. Any colour nail polish of your choice
  2. A fine glitter topper
  3. A chunky glitter topper

The technique:

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)

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

Doctor Who (Adipose) Nails

Hi everyone!

Today I will be sharing the nails I did a few days ago, before my St. Patrick’s Day manicure. I wasn’t sure what nail art to go for that day, so I asked my boyfriend for a suggestion.
