Minty Turquoise Nails

The sun has been making more and more appearances and I couldn’t be more excited!! Because of the recent appearance of sunshine, I decided to bust out one of my all-time favorite Spring nail colors: mint. The mint I went with is Turquoise & Caicos by Essie. This color reminds me so much of Tiffany & Co.’s signature color, which is why I think most of you can agree with me when I say it’s one of the best colors ever- based solely on the beautiful jewelry alone. I love using my Tiffany & Co. jewelry boxes as decorations around my room, and I usually drape a small necklace or bracelet across them. The color looks great paired with silver and gold. To play off of this, I added some silver sparkle to my ring finger on each hand to mimic diamonds. To make the silver glitter polish (Set in Stones) pop even more, I painted it on top of a base layer of a neutral color (Toasted Marshmallow). This also made the glitter easier …

Oops I Did It Again: New Spring Bag!!

I don’t know about you, but I can never have enough bags. Don’t get me wrong I love my shoes, but if I had to pick, I’d say I’m a bag girl all the way. Now that we’re getting into the warmer months, thank goodness!, I get to switch out my more winter-y bags for warm weather appropriate ones. In the colder months, I stick with dark colors like blacks, browns, and maybe the occasional red. When Spring hits, I like to rock lighter colors like pastels and neutrals. Also, my bags in the winter are usually oversized, hobo style bags. In Spring/Summer I love wearing smaller sized cross body bags because A) I don’t carry much around with me during these months, and B) wearing a cross body bag leaves my hands free to do fun summer things like ride a bike or peruse through local flea and farmer’s markets. Plus, I find they tend to look better with breezy summer clothes. That leads me to this beauty. {Pause for reaction} I found this …

What’s On My Nails Wednesday {4/3/13}

One of my favorite accessories is nail polish! Every time I go shopping, whether it be at the Goodwill or Nordstroms, I seem to always come home with another addition to my collection. AKA: I need to go to nail polish rehab, ASAP. I’m pretty sure it all started when I was little and would rock these beauties on a day to day basis. ¬†Anyone else remember these puppies?!! I think it’s awesome that crazy nail polish and nail art have become popular. It’s a super easy and fun way to express yourself ! Since I change my polish every week, I thought it would be fun to share how I accessorize my nails with you. Yay for pretty nails!! Although Spring officially started two weeks ago, the sun here in Indiana came out of hibernation yesterday. I thought I would celebrate with this bright Spring-ish orange Essie polish called Tart Deco. I bought it last summer and was always afraid I couldn’t pull it off. Until now. And let me tell you, I’m rocking …

Spring 2013 Must Haves!!

The day we thought would never come is finally here. Spring has sprung and I could not be more excited! After what seemed like the longest winter of all time, we can finally bust out the florals and pastels. Goodbye gloves and hello crop tops! In celebration of yesterday being the first day of Spring, I have put together some of my must haves for the warmer season. It will still be a little bit longer until it warms up here in the midwest, but I’m writing this in hopes that Mother Nature will see this post and decide to speed things up a bit. Maybe? Cross you fingers for me! 1:Pastel Polish! If you’re like me, you covet Katy Perry’s crazy cool nail art. While Pinterest makes at-home nail art look easy, us non-artistic polishers who can’t draw a straight line, let alone a red carpet ready manicure, are left with sticky fingers and lack luster nails. Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That! My solution: fun pastel colors. It’s springy, trendy, and super easy. …
