Summer Floral and Polka Dot Nails

Yep, it's that time of the year again where summer comes to an end and we all go back to school. *cries hysterically*

But I'm trying to hang on to my last little bit of summer on my last week of vacation so I decided to do these summer-y floral nails. What better polish to use to capture the colors of summer than China Glaze "Flip Flop Fantasy"?

I used Sally Hansen "Mellow Yellow", China Glaze "Flip Flop Fantasy", and OPI "Miami Beet" for the flowers, and I used Essie "The More the Merrier" and "Naughty Nautical" for the leaves.

How To Grow Your Nails Long and Strong

One of the most common questions I get is, "How did you get your nails so long and healthy?" I figured since so many people want to know, I would do a complete write up on how I keep my nails long.

Just like anyone else, my nails do break. I typically get breaks on the corners of my nails because I shape them to be square. More oval shaped nails tend to break straight across. Luckily, I naturally have pretty strong nails that grow relatively fast, and when I do get breaks, they aren't really that bad.

Here are my best tips for how to grow your nails out, and how to get stronger nails!

These are my nail care must have products!

My 16th Birthday Nails

Hello everyone! Today is my 16th birthday and I decided to do some nails for the occasion.

I really wanted to just do a nail design that incorporated all of my favorite nail designs and colors. That includes light blue, lots of glitter, and of course, chevrons! :)

70's Inspired Zebra Print Mani

Hello everyone! I'm back with another mani using polishes from the Salon Perfect "Top of the Class" collection; this time from the 70's portion of it!

The 70's part of the collection is called "70's Disco Divas" and it lives up to its decade with lots of color and glitter. The polishes I received were "Disco Ballin'", "Foxy Lady", and "Disco Diva". 

The polishes I used in this mani were "Disco Ballin'" and "Foxy Lady". I also used Salon Perfect "Sugar Cube" for a white base color, and finished the mani with the Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat. The zebra stripes were painted with black acrylic paint and a small brush.
