Sarah here! For today’s manicure monday post I wanted something soft and romantic. This color, Backstage, is from Victoria’s Secret. Unfortunately, they no longer carry their line of nail polish. It’s sad because they had some really great colors! I’m seriously loving this one right now!
Today Emily is bringing you some pretty pastels and polkadots for todays Mani-Monday!
I just got this pretty mint-blue from Essie called Blossom Dandy! I realized I don’t really have a lot of spring colors and this color is so bright and happy, I love it!. I wanted to add a little more to it so I used a Sally Hansen nail art pen in white to create the polka dots for some quick and cute nail art!
I decided to use 5 different shades of pastel blues/greens as my base. From left to right it is: Wet n’ Wild in Bird Bath, Covergirl in Skylight, Essense in You Belong to Me, American Apparel in Office, and Covergirl in Mint Mojito. Then, I used a white polish with a dotting tool to create little white dasies and used an orangey yellow in the centers!
Today Emily is reviewing some of her favorite moisturizing nail care products! This winter she was introduced to L’Occitane products and they changed her life!
Winter always takes a toll on my nails. Dry cuticles are painful and so are constantly breaking nails. I highly suggest visiting a L’Occitane store near you and asking for a hand scrub. The person working should assist you with trying their amazing hand scrub, which not only gets the dry skin off your hands, but also totally moisturizes them. After the hand scrub you should
use their hand cream. It’s 20% shae butter and makes your hands feel so incredibly soft, but not oily at all. Finally, you brush on their cuticle oil, which I use almost every night before I go to bed to keep my cuticles from drying out. The travel sized tubes are reasonably priced and last a long time! The L’Occitane stores and packaging are also beautiful and it’s always a pleasant experience to visit their shops. I love the products and I suggest everyone try them out!
Here is Emily’s Manicure Monday for this week!
I spent today and last night in Hocking Hills, Ohio and I loved the way the color of my nails looked in the beautiful view from out cabin’s deck. I am wearing Grandiose by Formula X for Sephora which is a super shimery color that reflects both a deep magenta, a copper color, and cold depending on the lighting.
I’m about to go on vacation so I wanted a fun, playful manicure this week! I decided to go for an all over glitter polish. This is one of my all time favorite glitter polishes: Scorcher from Urban Outfitters. It covers very well and the larger flecks of glitter are such fun colors! I absolutely love it and it’s perfect for this time of year! It’s just a little reminder that Spring is just around the corner 🙂
