Mani: Back-to-School Preppy Plaid

affiliate
I wish summer could last forever, but alas! It is not to be. School started today, and I decided to go back in style with fall colors. I broke a nail recently, so all my lovely long nails got filed down to nubs — I think I went a little overboard on my left hand, lol.

Mani: Under the Sea

OMG I suck at life and blogging. I just… The end of this school year was so difficult, for reasons. When people say that teachers have it easy, I want to kick them in the shins, because we don’t.

Anyhoo, I finally had time to do a decent manicure, and I wanted to try doing a gradient again, because I’m so bad at it. I covered up my ineptitude with glitter, which is really the best way to do it.

Snow Day Swatch: Zoya Naturel Satins for Spring 2015

Since I’m homebound today, I have a little time in my grading vortex to show you the new Zoya transitional collection. I have all three of the Naturel collections; I think they’re lovely and versatile shades. Satin and matte finishes are definitely the trend for spring, with Essie also releasing a matte finish collection in shades very similar to the Zoya Naturel Satins (so if you don’t have a Zoya retailer close by, check your local drugstore when the Essies come out).

Mani Monday – Cocoa

So, I’m on a diet. This isn’t anything new, but I’m really trying to watch what I eat so I can drop a few before the winter holidays. One thing I’m craving is chocolate, so I’ve been buying a bunch of skincare products with chocolate in them to tide me over. I decided to do a cocoa-colored manicure too. Just so you all know, it’s not helping my choco-craving one bit. 🙂
