Happy Father's Day!

Today is Father's Day and this post is dedicated to my dad.  I did a mani in honor of him.  This is my dad at my wedding.  To the man who raised me, happy Father's Day!

From the Beginning

Urban Lacquer is an indie brand that I fell in love with while browsing Etsy one day.  Among my first purchase was this polish, Ab Initio, which means "from the beginning" in Latin.

Of Coarse or Smooth?

When I was out shopping on Sunday, I picked up most of the China Glaze texture polishes.  I've shied away from most textures, which have been all the rage this year.  But for you reader, be prepared for my honesty.

Mint Madness With Barry M and White Owl Lacquers

Have I expressed my love for the Barry M gelly nail paints enough?  I have used them so much in the short time I've owned them.  They a are wonderful addition to any collection.  Today I decided to try Greenberry with Water Lilies from White Owl Lacquers.

Ninja Polish Pacific Coral

I love the Ninja Polish Enigma collection.  I didn't have much interest in any of them until a friend lent me her Divinity and as soon as I wore it, I knew I needed to buy it.

EcoPolo Summer Mani Challenge: Summer Glitter

Today I present the second installment of the EcoPolo Summer Mani Challenge.  This week calls for summer and glitter and the first thing I thought was, neon!  And then I realized I have no neon glitters (must fix this).  So I found things that seemed like summer to me.

Hauling Like A Boss

Today I present to you a week's worth of hauling.  These are in no particular order.  Enjoy!

I received my It Girl Julep Maven box with three Nantucket themed Sail Into Summer polishes.  Bess is a "baby blue creme".  Nan is a "Nantucket red creme".  Char is a "nautical navy blue creme".  I was very happy with these selections.

EcoPolo Summer Mani Challenge: Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

This is a short and sweet blog post today.  I am participating in a Summer Mani Challenge for a Face Book group I co-admin.  I am late posting the first week's challenge and I never even took all my photos.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

I don't wear a lot of gold polish because I feel like it's a bit harsh for my skin tone.  That being said, I don't wear a lot of silver polish either.  I decided to try a gold with glitter, in hopes that I could pull it off.

I went with a-england Holy Grail (the original version) and Glitzology Rhinestone Jumpsuit.

Indie Week: White Base With Glitter

Today's post feature's another polish from Amy's Nail Boutique.  My theme for today was a polish that had a white base with glitter in it.  I have an entire Helmer drawer full of Amy's polish but this one had been untried.
