For tonight's post I really wanted to try out one of my polishes I received in last month's Julep Maven Box. This one is called Joy and I'm pretty certain I posted pictures of it last night. It went on so amazingly smooth and the color is just gorgeous! It's a perfect color for spring and also just adds that feminine touch to an outfit. My best friend is getting married in May and this weekend is her bridal shower and this will definitely be my polish of choice for the weekend. What do you think of the color?

 Kali really wanted to make an appearance in tonight's post (sorry for my appearance, it is late lol). Isn't she adorable though? My little poser!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Making Up for Lost Time

First and foremost, I need to apologize to my blog and my readers - I am SO immensely sorry that I have neglected you so much for the past 2 months. :( Please find it in your hearts to forgive me. Hopefully after you finish reading my post you will look past my neglection and will forgive me.

While I have been MIA from my blog, I have not stopped doing my nails or taking pictures of the manicures I've been doing. So today I want to share with you just a few different looks I did as well as quite a few new nail polishes I've picked up in the mean time.

For this first mani I wanted to add a little sparkle (of course, who doesn't like sparkle?!). For my middle and ring finger I used Essie's Set in Stones, I've had my eye on this polish for quite some time now and finally decided to get it and I'm sure glad I did. It is gorgeous!! For my remaining fingers I used Essie's Turquoise & Caicos, which is a gorgeous turquoise blue and goes on amazing! Here's the finally result:

  My next mani was a polish that I have been on the hunt for everywhere!! I've been wanting a really gorgeous emerald green and the other day Alex and I were at Target when I spotted it. I about screamed with excitement! When I found out it was on sale for only $3 I screamed some more :) Anyways since it's such a gorgeous color I wanted to just leave it alone and not add any nail art or anything to it. Its by Revlon and called Posh, so fitting!

Now the remaining pictures are just some poloshes that I've picked up in the last couple weeks:

Since this post was so pic heavy I'm going to end on that note. I am hoping sometime this week to post another makeup tutorial, this one is going to be about contouring your face, which is my new obsession!

Spring into Stripes

So I know that it's not officially spring yet, but it's beginning to feel a lot like it so I went ahead and did a spring mani. For my base I used OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
Then once my nails dried I used my Scotch tape and taped off the bottom part of my nail where I wanted my first stripe to be. For my first stripe I used NYC's Times Square Tangerine Creme. Now I must say that I did the LONG version of this. I did my stripes one by one on each nail first before I moved onto the next stripe. So be warned that this can be very time consuming! Here's how it looked after my first stripe was done:

For my next stripe I used Essie's Mezmerised and made this stripe a little bit thicker. Here's how that looked:

Then finally I did my last stripe using NYC's Times Square again. I made this one a little bit thinner. Here is the final result with my Seche Vite on:

Here is where my inspiration from this manicure came from. A cute little racer back blouse :)

I also wanted to share with you my latest pedicure I did. At the moment I do not have the nail polish names on me so I will be sure to get those and update my post once I do. I thought they were just cute and fun and summer-y because Lord knows I cannot wait for summer!!!!

Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!!
