Pretty in Plaid Nails

So we aren’t in spring officiallyΒ so the big question is what trend to do on your nails. It’s February so I wanted to get something done on my nails that is fall/winterish but still has a spring vibe.

I love the oxblood red color because it’s not a bright red but it’s not quite a burgundy color. I decided to get that color and do the plaid accent nails. I decided to get the traditional Burberry inspired plaid on the nails because I’ve never had the traditional plaid before. I love this nail design because it’s perfect for this time of year. It goes with all my ‘transition’ outfits and is the perfect nail design to take from day to night.
I absolutely love this nail design and I am so glad I got this design on my nails. Comment BELOW and let me know what YOU think of this nail design?! Have you join the PLAID CLUB?!

Nail Designs that Fit your Nail Shape

So if you’re like me than you fall in love with all these nail design on Pinterest or Instagram, but the fact is they don’t actually fitΒ your nail shape when you try to replicate the look. I don’t have acrylic nails so my nails are smaller than others that do have acrylic nails. Usually I have to tweak the design to fit my nails to make it look how it looks in the tutorial.


I came across this tutorial above when I browsing Youtube one of my favorite channels. This tutorial is amazing because you can actually see the nail designs on natural nails and they are so easy to fit any nail shape!
What design is your favorite from the video?!

Ombre Sparkle for New Years

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE EVE! It’s almost 2017 and that means our last nail design of 2016 has to be SPARKLES!

I have to say if you haven’t tried the nude polish trend you definitely need too. Depending on your taste you can go as light or dark on the nude color palette as you like. I prefer a nude that is a little darker because I like to see a little touch of color.
For New Years I’m doing to do the nude basecoat and then add sparkle on the nails towards the back and do an ombre sparkle. I simplyΒ love this look for New Years. It’s simple but also adds a fun sparkle touch that I love.
Why not add some sparkle to your look for New Years?! What trend are you wearing for New Years? Do you love the nude and glitter trend?

Frosty the Snowman Nails

Fall Nails on Fleek

So I decided to get my nails done four weeks after my ear surgery. My sisters were getting their acrylic nails, but I decided since I usually take my acrylic nails off within a week that I didn’t want to go through that hassle. Especially since it was so close to my surgery.
I decided to get gel nails. The last time I got them done (not that the same nail salon) it burned so bad that by the time I drove home I had to remove the gel polish off my nails. They did ten coats of glitter polish and it was so thick and hurt so bad.

I decided to go for it this at this new salon and I was surprised to find out that it didn’t hurt at all! I got the nail designs on the gel and it’s so shiny that everyone keeps asking if it is really my nails!
But yes they are my real nails just with gel polish over them. I have to say these are my new favorite nail designs I’ve ever had. They haven’t chipped at all and they feel natural so I can still do everything I always do! After getting my gel nails done (the right way) I have decided that I love the gel nails!
What do you think of my fall gel nails?!
