    New Year’s Nails

    I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do for my New Year’s Nails. I love glittery nails, especially this time of year! With New Year’s Eve quickly approaching, I’ve been wanting a festive manicure; but with glitter nail polish being such a pain to take off I was thinking of going a different route. That is, until I discovered the gel FANTASY Nails by KISS in ‘Faux Real’*. These press on nails are so easy to apply and give the pretty, festive look of glitter nails but are way easier to remove! The nails have a smooth finish and aren’t unbearably long so they are comfortable to wear. You…

    Simple Christmas Manicure

    I love painting my nails! I always like having them done and love switching up my polish with the seasons. This week I’ve opted to do a simple Christmas manicure! It was super simple to create and looks so festive. I just painted my nails red and then took my Essence Nail Art Duo Stylist  with some white and green polish to create polka dots on top. It only took a few minutes to do and I love the end result! Do you like to switch up your nails with the seasons? What do you think of my simple Christmas manicure?   shop the post

    My Essie Collection

    essie is my favourite brand for drugstore nail polishes. They have an extensive colour range and they apply so nicely. I also find I can go a while before my nail polish starts to wear or chip; which is always a nice bonus! I’ve been growing my collection of essie polishes for a little while now, and am starting to get a good shade range put together! Today I thought I would share with you my essie collection: Frilling Me Softly silver tassel top coat from the luxe effects collection and my go-to top coat for the holidays. Cocktail Bling a cool tone blue-grey and one of my all-time favourite…

    At-home Spa Night

    While I like to be busy most of the time, I’m a homebody at heart. I love nights in and try to have a couple at-home spa nights each month. I always feel so refreshed and relaxed after an at-home spa night so today I thought I would share with you my essentials for the perfect pamper evening! Aerin Body Wash in ‘Mediterranean Honeysuckle’* This has been my go-to bubble bath this summer. It has a light and refreshing scent and makes my skin super soft. It contains notes of honeysuckle and grapefruit and has gorgeous packaging. Tazo Peppermint Tea I am a huge fan of herbal tea and this…

    Iridescent Nails

    While I typically prefer darker nail polish shades, it can be fun to switch them up for lighter hues now that spring is here. Most recently I have been obsessed with iridescent nails, specifically the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure* polish in the shade ‘Luna Pearl’ as it is a more subtle, feminine take on the trend. The brush applies the polish really nicely and two coats give me an opaque finish. I also find it wears well for the better part of a week before chipping, which I love. ‘Luna Pearl’ is a pearly-pinkish-purple hue that is kind of hard to describe but is so pretty and feminine. There…
