Just Another MANICure Monday: Ebony Hates Chris and Plaid

Well it has been a minute since I did a MANICure Monday post…I haven’t really had the time to polish my nails and I haven’t been feeling too creative either. But I had a little extra time on my hands last night plus the Nakamichi Nail Foil Strips that I were in this months My Shade of Brown Pillow Box that I posted about here, so I decided to treat my self to a little mani. Check it out….

Excuse my middle finger, it was late and didn’t get a chance to clean it up as much as I would like. I’ll be doing a review of the Nakamichi Nail Foil Strips soon.

Just Another MANICure Monday: Christmas Edition

Merry Christmas Eve

I absolutely love everything about Christmas and I can’t wait until tomorrow! I swear I’m worse than my kiddos…looking up under the tree counting the presents. LOL

This week’s MANICure Monday is totally Christmas inspired and I think it may be my favorite mani to date. I used six different polishes (pictured below) to create this look: Pure Ice in Frosted Ice Platinum; Claire’s Polish in Chunky Silver; Jordana Nail Polish in Red Silk; Jordana Glitters Nail Polish in Red Flash; Milani Nail Art Polish in Art of Silver and L.A. Colors Art Deco in Red Glitter.

This week’s Just Another MANICure Monday is being hosted Effie Lynn of LA Lynn’s, definitely head over there and check out all the super cute mani’s happening over there. I’ve been finding so much nailspiration from this weekly blog hop and it’s so much fun seeing what everyone comes up with each week. I’m so glad that Effie Lynn and Mimi of Lipgloss & Binky decided to team up!

Just Another MANICure Monday: Matte me Crazy with Glitter

I hope that everyone had an awesome weekend. As for me, I didn’t get into much; the highlight of my weekend was Saturday, I spent the majority of the day relaxing in my PJ’s…feel free to judge as you please. LOL 

So with all the free time lounging around I brainstormed a few mani ideas and decided to try out my NYC matte top coat again. This week’s mani is totally inspired by Mimi of Lipgloss and Binky, who also co-host Just Another MANICure Monday with Effie Lynn of LA Lynns. If you’re wondering what Just Another MANICure Monday is, I posted about it here and here. I’ve been having so much fun participating! Well, a few weeks ago Mimi used the NYC matte top coat over polished nails with glitter for her mani…the results were too cute and I decided to give it a try.

I’m not sure if you see the way the glitter just pops against the matte polish but I love the effects, even the hubs thought is was pretty cool. So this look is definitely one I will be keeping in the rotation. And if you still haven’t tried matte polish then you should; the NYC brand top coat is less than $3 bucks and worth every penny. Mimi is the hostess for Just Another MANICure Monday this week, so head over to her blog for more nail inspiration!

Just Another MANICure Monday: Nude Sparkle

It’s just another MANICure Monday!!! And I’m thankful just to see another day. I had a pretty decent weekend…I got a chance to see Santa, hang out at Chuck-E-Cheese’s and enjoyed some quality time with my favorite guys roasting marshmallows. The downside, I had envisioned doing some fancy nail art but it didn’t happen. I ended settling with a trusty fav…a neautral color with a pop glitter, nothing special. I wore this combo a lot over the summer but I love it so much that I’m keeping it in rotation.
