ABC Challenge - B is for Bows

Did everyone love my post?? It was supposed to show last night, but for some reason it didn't Publish... maybe I just didn't hit the button.

I am again a couple days late for the ABC Challenge, not starting out well am I? I debated for a long time as to what I was going to do for the letter B. First, I was going to do blue, then I thought bubbles, then I thought blue AND bubbles, but because of my procrastination someone got to it first. :( I decided to go with a tried and true... bows. I know I've already posted two other manicures with my rhinestone bows, but I just LOVE them so much and I've really been wanting to do a mani with this lilac colored bow. For the nail polish I used Julep's Toni then placed a bow on both ring fingers. Here's how it turned out:

These rhinestones never fail me! They are an easy go to and just add that extra something.
On another note, Alex and I ran to Walgreens to pick me up some more medicine because I'm sick as a dog, and I saw these Essie Sleek Stick nail appliques. Can I just say that they have the most amazingly cute designs, unfortunately Alex told me I could only get one (someone has to keep me under control!) so here's what I chose:

Of course I had to take my polish off and re-do my mani! Duh! (just channeled my inner valley girl)
I definately love how they turned out, but I must say I am still a huge fan of my imPRESS nails since I feel that they are more adherent and 'protect' your natural nail more. Also with the Essie nail appliques I feel like they would lift a lot easier and peel when they got wet, whether it be showering or washing your hands. I will check back in tomorrow to update on how well they last through the day. Overall, very cute cute designs and easy manicure for a night out or special occassion.
 Hope everyone has a great Friday night!!
