Nail Treats

I’ve been feeling stressed out lately, mainly due to a few life issues going on for me.  Changed my polish today which always puts me into a better mood.  It’s probably more of a Fall shade but I don’t care.  I don’t see a reason in adhering to trends and seasons – if you like it and it will make you feel better, do it.

“Gorgeous” by Sinful Colors as the base layered with, “All About You” by Sunful Colors on top.  I finished with a clear coat on top for extra shine.

White Nails?

I have seen some women with white nail polish and wanted to try it on myself.  It was actually hard to find a bottle of white polish that didn’t have a pink base.  I like the outcome though.  It looks really bright paired with my summer complexion.  I think this would look good on anyone too.  I added an accent nail with silver glitter so it wouldn’t look boring.  This will look pretty done any time of year too.  I think in winter I will add the silver glitter to every nail.

Have you tried the white nail look yet?  Are you willing to try it?

This week – Accent Nails

I love experimenting with color combinations when painting my nails.  The expensive stuff doesn’t last any longer than the cheap stuff, so you may as well stock up on all your favorite colors in a cheaper brand.  I vary between Sinful Colors retailing about $1.99 a bottle or Wet’n’Wild which is around $1 a bottle.  Currently, I’m wearing a gray/blue color with a sparkly pink accent nail.  It’s easy, cute and can look dressed up or casual.  I saw these two colors and couldn’t resist.

What are you doing this week on your nails?

And Just Like That – It’s Over

Here we are at Friday evening and my nail polish is chipped on both my hands and feet.  The way my nails look is a visual representation of how I feel.  This week has been both stressful and tiring, but I am very thankful it is over.  This week ending marks the end of another school year and an end (almost) of one of the classes I am taking.  It is a time to reflect this weekend on my goals, accomplishments and what I have planned for myself next.  The intense challenges I have faced over the last 10 months have made me to take a step back and realize that those small moments in life are worth cherishing because there will always be someone ready to douse your flame.  Around every damn corner it seems too!

While some relationships have withered, some were cultivated in such amazing ways.  The pride you feel watching loved ones reach their goals is a beautiful thing to witness and experience.  When I say loved ones, for me, it goes beyond just immediate family members.  When I consider someone a friend, they are “loved ones” to me.  It may not be romantic love, but platonic, adoration, appreciation, and respect all the same.  I want those around me to ascend to their next level in wherever their passion lie.

This goes for you as well, the reader.  I hope if this finds you that you let go of whatever is weighing you down.  Whatever you feel tied to these days.  It could be anything, any issue clouding your mind with cobwebs of denial, disaster and depression.  Remember that those small hours when the light is just right and they are smiling and laughing because it might be a “girls party,” those are the times to hold tight to when the darkness comes calling through its many vices.  Sometimes we have to let our guards down and have that tea party, play pretend, color inside and outside of the lines.  Sometimes it is all we have and sometimes it is more than enough.

Have a great weekend!
