Just Another MANICure Monday: Dotted Nude

Yeah, I know I just posted about my weekend mani but it didn’t last very long after all the cleaning on Friday and Saturday, so you know I had to change it. Other than cleaning and running a few errands my weekend was pretty relaxing. The weekend highlight was the homemade salsa I whipped up for Cinco de Mayo. Of course, I found the recipe on my fav site Pinterest…it was quick, simple and delicious. Anywho, on to this week’s MANICure…

I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with my nails this week. I wasn’t feeling the glitter accent nail and I didn’t want to go with just a plain ol’ mani either. But it was kinda late so I had to do something simple, so I pulled out my trusty dotting tool. I decided to go with my fav nude, Sand Tropez by Essie. And I love how bright colors just pop against that shade so I got busy. Check out what I came up with.

Just Another MANICure Monday: Surrel Appeal

Well the weekend has officially come and gone….I spent most of my Saturday morning hitting up a few yard sales at some local churches in my area. And yes, I scored BIG. One of the churches has a semi-annual yard sale with “fill-a-bag” (a paper bag that is) with clothes only for $8. So you already know your girl was rolling and stuffing clothes in the bag to the max….lol. I spent the rest of my weekend Spring Cleaning. All I can say is that the weekend flew by and I still have tons of chores that I need to get done. Oh well the story of my life, I guess. But in the midst of everything, I did get a chance to do my nails.

I realized once I was done polishing my nails that this week’s polish choice was very similar to what I had on last week. Apparently I have a thing for hot pink/coral shades. However this week I decided to add an accent nail using my fav nude polish and a little glitter. I really like it so you’ll more than likely be seeing it again real soon. Check out this week’s MANICure and let me know what you think….

So what do you think of the accent nail? I like the silver and gold contrast against the nude polish. Like I said you’ll probably be seeing it again soon…lol. To see even more cute MANICures check out Lipgloss & Binky, my girl MiMi is hosting this weeks Just Another MANICure Monday link-up.

Midweek Mani Pastel Green & Dots

I was out-of-town this past weekend so I missed doing my “regular” MANICure Monday post. I polished my nails on Friday (not my normal self-mani day) and my nails ended up looking a mess by Sunday sooooo….I’ve been dying to trying out the new Nabi Cosmetics nail polish in Pastel Green that I posted about here and I decided to give myself a mid-week mani. Check it out…I think I’m in love with this color.

I must say that I am quite impressed with the Nabi Cosmetics Nail Polish. Not only do I love the color but the polish is thick and glides on great. This is definitely one of my favorite from the March My Shade of Brown Pillow Box.
