this is my addiction.

Tag: “Turned Up Turquoise”

Nail it Down

I’ve been slacking on updating you guys on my awesome nails… So here’s what you’ve missed. Or some of it at least.

These hands belong to a girl named Hilary, in my education class. I LOVED them; they’re the Sally Hansen nail strips, that I still haven’t tried out for myself. She said they’re SUPER easy, and I thought these looked ADORABLE.

Those are my hands! I used Sally Hansen’s Pink Slip, and OPI’s Siberian Nights. I love the Siberian Nights color, by the way. I’ve been wearing it literally almost every week since I bought it. The first time I used it, I painted all my nails with it, except for my ring finger on both hands, and used gold glitter on my ring fingers. Looked awesome, if I may say so myself….

I’ve also been using a protein formula, that I bought at Beauty Brands, so that I could strengthen my horribly damaged nails. And it’s working it’s magic. I use it as a base and top coat, and I’ve noticed a huge improvement in the thickness of my nails. Amazing stuff.

And my nails as of Thanksgiving, look like THIS!:

I used Sally Hansen’s Pink Slip again, and China Glaze’s Turned Up Turquoise. Yes, this is how I spent part of my Thanksgiving: Hanging out on the couch, buffing, then filing, then painting. Good timessss.

I REALLY love the Turned Up Turquoise. Especially with my new earrings. Again, I’ll post pictures soon!


Summertime Style

So, since you’re reading about things in my life that are so personal, I thought you should see firsthand what my style looks like. I set up a shoot with a friend, Jillian, to show off my personal style.

If I had to describe it, I’d say, for the most part, I’m a pretty casual girl. ESPECIALLY in the middle of Arizona’s summers. When it’s 115 degrees outside, I don’t care too much for packin on the layers. I keep it simple with tank tops and denim shorts. Most of the time I’m also rockin’ flip flops or my Converse.

This is a perfect example of my every day outfit.

This next outfit is also very typical for my summer style.  More denim shorts, and yet another tank. This is something I’d wear on a summer night, to a party, or just to hang out with the boys (on a typical summer night, you’d find me kickin’ it with some of my best friends, most of which are guys).

Notice the nail color; it’s the new one I bought, “Turned Up Turquoise” by OPI.

By the way, I love stacked bracelets and rings; I’m not a huge accessories person, but I love the look of it. I find a lot of cute accessories at American Eagle. Their jewelry is to die for!

My nextttt outfit, is my summer sun dress. This is when I feel like dressing it up a bit, but still casual enough for comfort!

Uhm, I’m in love with that dress from Forever21. The tribal print is adorable, and honestly, I like it better than the one I’m wearing! What the heck? I might have to make it mine.

And last but not leastttt, my night out attire! This is what I originally intended to wear as my birthday dress, however, my birthday this year was freezing cold and rainy, so this was not the outfit I wore.
