Orly Mirrorball Springtime Skittle

Happy Spring everyone! I hope the weather is as beautiful in your part of the world as it is in mine today. I know it's officially been Spring for awhile but this is the first nail art I've done this year that is perfect for the season. (Fortunately I had the foresight to do this mani before my smashed hand incident) This was my first time using Orly Mirrorball and I thought it went perfectly with the pastel shades. Those featured pastels are the three Maybelline Color Show polishes that I won from Imperfectly Painted's giveaway. Thanks again Stephanie!

Colores de Carol Spring Gala 2015 Collection

First things first, I need to apologize for being so inactive on my blog this month. Secondly, I really need to apologize for the quality of this post. My kitchen remodel is finally done- yay! In the midst of things, I thought I'd lend a helping hand (big mistake) and ended up getting my fingers smashed between a refrigerator and a door frame. I will spare you the details, just know it wasn't a pretty picture.  Not knowing how long it would take my fingers to heal, and needing to get some swatching done, I went with my only other option. So please forgive me for my weird nail shape, inconsistent poses, and wonky application. It was not easy working with my other hand!

Okay, now that we've gotten through that long explanation, let's talk about the nail polishes. Today I have for you the Colores de Carol Spring Gala 2015 Collection. It consists of seven crelly and pastel mini glitter polishes. I was excited to try these out because I really don't have any others like them.

Oh What Luck! St. Patty's Day Mani

Hello everyone! My kitchen remodel is all done, and it looks great. We're trying to put things pack together and I'm still getting used to the changes. Adjusting takes a lot of mental energy for me in my old age.

I have one more St. Patrick's Day mani for you. Growing up I never liked this holiday because of the requisite wearing of my least favorite color- green. I can't say I like the holiday any better now, but I am pretty happy with how this mani came out.

Colores de Carol Gilded Shamrock March Exclusive

Today I have another green for you, one that for me is very wearable as greens go. Starting this month Colores de Carol will be releasing "color of the month" polishes, that are only available the month of their release. This is the first one for March, very appropriate for St. Patrick's Day.

Feeling Irish For A Day With Zoya Staasi

Hey everyone! I feel like it's been so long since I've posted! I have been going through a kitchen remodel and it has made life more complicated than usual. It's coming along well though, and I'm so excited for a new kitchen! With the tiny bit of extra energy that I've had, I did some simple nail art.
