Weekend Mani ~ Back to the Fuchsia!

20140513_115215Hi My Loves!  I’m sorry its been a slow week on the blog – I’m just starting to get over a nasty head cold that has been making the rounds!  Since I’m starting to feel a little more human again – I wanted to do a quick post on my current manicure!

Since I have been feeling awful –  I went with a bright bold pink to make me feel better!  This is Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in #530 – Back to the Fuchsia.  I’ve still seen this color out in stores even though I’ve had it for a couple of years now.

Weekend Mani ~ Purple Nails!

IMG_20140504_134452_460Hi Loves!  This weekend’s mani is a bright purple that I LOVE!  You know by now that I love bold nails – and this is the perfect manicure for me.

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme in 190 Posh Plum and Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in 450 Wedding Crasher on the accent nail.

I had a graduation to attend so wanted something fun and bright since it started out as a rainy day.  This stunning purple and pink glitter accent nail were the perfect combination to pair with a navy outfit and chase away the rain!

What are some of your favorite summer colors?

Weekend Mani ~ Sally Hansen Triple Shine {sparkling water}

IMG_20140302_124835_124Hi Loves!  I’m back with a weekend mani!  After a few weeks of trying to help my nails get re-hydrated and back to somewhat normal, I decided despite a weekend snow storm that I wanted some summery nails!  This is a polish I picked up a few weeks ago at Target when they were on sale for around $4.

Here’s Sally Hansen’s Triple Shine in Sparkling Water – It is quite sheer and I wanted my mani to look like the bottle so I did a base coat of Julep Nellie (Navy Blue) and two thin coats of Sparkling Water.  I tacked on a top coat for good measure and am looking forward to kicking off March with some blue green sparkle nail polish!

Have you tried these polishes?  I have two others that I haven’t worn yet but will soon!

Christmas Party Manicure

PicsArt_1386517703956I had my first Christmas Party on Friday night, and wanted some “festive” red nails.  I was going through my collection of polishes and found one that I completely forgot about!  Its Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in #470 Unbreakable Heart.  I’ve had this for a couple years so I’m not sure if its still available in stores.  Some of the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails polish have been hit and miss for me.  Some are so shear it drives me crazy, however this polish was impressive with two coats.  I was in a rush so didn’t spend too much time getting a flawless manicure but it turned out okay in the end!  As far as wear goes, a couple days later and my tips are worn but it was less than $2 a bottle with a coupon – at that price – I’m okay with some average wear!

Weekend Mani ~ Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine


This weekend’s mani is staying with last weekend’s dark and vampy trend!  I forgot I had this color until I was re-organizing my polishes yesterday and stumbled upon this one!  This comes off in pictures as black but in person and in the light its a deep brown with burgundy shimmer in it.  It is stunning in the light and I wish it would have photographed better for you!  I can only find that is color #08 – Glossy.  I am loving these dark colors for fall and Halloween time.
