Monday Blues - Sally Hansen Satin Glam Teal Tulle

Hey, guys - Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start. We are back to battling snow here - yep, the middle of May - only in Colorado! Hopefully everything will be back to normal after tomorrow.

For today's Monday Blues I have a polish from the Sally Hansen Satin Glam collection - Teal Tulle.

Teal Tulle is a gorgeous, bright teal blue. On my ring finger I attempted a "fishtail" braid for the first time using two polishes from the OPI Gwen Stefani collection - 4 In The Morning and Love.Angel.Music.Baby. All of these polishes dry to a satin finish, but I top coated everything to smooth out the accent nail, and also to bring out that shimmer in Teal Tulle.  :)

Thanks so much for reading and have a great week! Be sure to check out the other Monday Blues manis, too!

Monday Blues - CoverGirl Skylight & Different Dimension Petal'd

Hey, everyone - Happy Monday! Just a real quick Monday Blues post for you tonight.

My base color is CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Skylight, which is a pretty robin's egg blue. Over that I applied Different Dimension Petal'd from the recent Spring 2014 collection. Petal'd is made up of pastel dot glitters in a clear base with holographic shimmer and,'s just awesome!

You can check out Different Dimension on Etsy and on Facebook.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hi, guys - I hope everyone had a great weekend! We are finally seeing some nicer weather here, so it was a good weekend for us to tackle some yard work as well as a bit of spring cleaning.

Here is a quick mani that I put together for Cinco de Mayo.

The red base color is Essie Silken Cord. I stamped using KleanColor black and the adorable chili pepper image from Bundle Monster plate BM-H24. I basically couldn't pass up the opportunity to use this plate!

The glitter is one that I recently purchased from Color4Nails - Penelope Luz Luxury. It's a mix of small red, black, and gold holographic glitters in a clear base. I really love this glitter - I think it adds a touch of bling, but in a sophisticated way.

Not only is today Cinco de Mayo, it's also my brother's birthday - so Happy Birthday, little bro! Thanks for reading, everyone, and have a wonderful day!
