Throwback Thursday~Come on Barbie Let's Go Party

Hey y'all!  Today I thought I'd do a little 'throwback' fun!  If you followed me from the beginning (THANK YOU!!!!) you may remember THIS post.  Apparently I thought it was awesome and did a great job lol.  Looking back I could pick it to pieces.  Obviously my photography has made a considerable improvement and my lines and detail are better too. So I thought it would be fun to do a little reboot and make some improvements on this one. And I mean, who doesn't love a good Barbie mani? 


Now this mani I seriously love.  (Although, I'm sure if I look back at this one in another 4 years I'll have a lot to say about this one too lol)  I can't believe this year I'll have been writing this blog for 4 YEARS!!!!  Crazy! 


Here's a little peek at the before. 
(You can view the original post HERE)

So yeah, definite improvements, right?




I am thinking about doing these throwback posts regularly.   Do you have anything I've done in the past that you would like to see 'new and improved'?  Would love your feedback. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  XOXO  Have a great day!

OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection and Nail Art

Sent for review


Hey y'all.  I am so ashamed at how long it's been since I last blogged.  I just got a new laptop so I will be back a lot more now.  Life has been good and work has been busy so I can't complain much.  :)  Today, I have the new OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection to share.  I will be honest, I really did not have high hopes for this collection but they are pretty awesome.  Seeing them in photos does not do them justice.  



Did you see the movie?  What did you think?  I haven't seen it yet.  I did read the books but I'll probably wait for it to come on PPV before I see it. 

Here's a quick and simple striped manicure I did using "Cement the Deal" and "My Silk Tie" along with black acrylic paint.


Did I mention simple?  If you have a striper brush and a steady hand, you can do this in a heart beat.  Love this color combo so much.  I'm actually wearing this design on my toes too.  


My Silk Tie is probably my favorite from this collection.  It's such an awesome metallic silver, I can't get enough. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  XOXO

Hey y'all!   I just wanted to make a quick post to share my NOTW and a little project I've been working on in my free time.

First, my nails!  My base is Gelish Caution and art done with acrylic paints and topped with Gelish Top it Off.



This is my latest project.  i am super proud of how it turned out.  It's now framed and sitting on my table at work. 


This set is kind of a throw back to my Charlie Brown Nails that I did a few years ago.   Except these are much better lol  You can check my old ones out HERE.

Monochromatic Gel Polish Nail Art

Hey y'all!  I feel like I start all of my posts lately with saying I'm sorry for not posting in so long.GelColorELCOLOR Life happens sometimes, right?  So does laziness but I'm not saying thats why I havent posted, I'm just saying it is a possibility lol.

I just thought I'd do a quick little post to share my nails of the moment.  I pretty much only wear gel polish with work because regular polish gets ruined in no time.  Gel polish gives me freedom to do my job without worrying about smudges or chips.



For this mani I used Gelish Sheek White, Gelish Black Shadow, Gelish Lets Hit The Bunny Slopes, and OPI GelColor My Signature is DC.

I have been loving this design and the colors used together.

Thanks so much for reading today.  Have a good week! Xoxo
