Manicure Monday: Periwinkle and Purple

Emily here! Happy Memorial Day! This week I got my gel polish off and have been experimenting with my long nails and different nail art techniques! I decided to do a sponge ombre using Sally Hansen’s Insta-dry in Set Sail as a base and sponged on Urban Outfitters Blue Jeans. An easy and cute manicure for the summer!

Thrift Store Finds

Check out what treasures The Babes found on their latest trip to the thrift store!

Oversized purple button up with moon and star print

Emily: I am a huge space enthusiast. I love astronomy and all things moon and stars. I found this purple oversized button up and had to have it. It is so lightweight and comfy, it will be perfect for the summer! I’m definitely feeling the 90’s fashion vibes this summer.

boxy chiffon printed button up

Emily: This light weight chiffon top is boxy and oversized and I also love it because of the hypnotizing print! It will be great for work tucked into some black loose pants and a blazer, or with a pair of jeans or shorts!

Ralph Lauren stretchy off the shoulder crop top

Emily: I already mentioned I’m channeling my inner child recently and this top says it all. It’s Ralph Lauren so it was a total bargain at $3.99. It looks adorable with high waisted jeans and it definitely shows off my figure. The cotton material is super stretchy and will be very cool once it starts getting hot.

Vintage 100% silk jacket with metallic gold feather print

Emily: This navy silk jacket is one of my most beautiful jacket finds. The outside is 100% silk and is printed with metallic gold feathers. It zips and has these shiny gold buttons to finish it off. It’s super comfy and cool and will be perfect for cool nights and for the fall!

Vera Wang printed dress

Sarah: I’m a big fan of tea length dresses and this one has a very unique hemline. I also love print and pattern mixing so I was immediately drawn to this dress! I plan to style this piece with a skinny belt and denim jacket.

Coldwater Creek t-shirt

Sarah: This t-shirt was brand new! It still had the original tags! This navy blue top is so soft and comfy, but features lovely feather motifs along the neckline that dress it up a bit.

St. John’s Bay light weight jacket

Sarah: This light weight jacket is perfect for this time of year! It’s a lovely shade of blue and the style and cut are very flattering. For only $3.99 this jacket was a steal!

Converse striped top

Sarah: This cotton top is perfect for spring. The vertical stripe print is lovely and the neckline ties are completely adjustable. I’m actually wearing this top today along with the blue jacket featured above!

Gap tank top

Sarah: I was drawn to the lovely color of this top, but I purchased it because of how comfortable it was and how well it fit. I also love the peter pan collar and feel that this could fit into the Americana category as well!

Vintage floral print pleated skirt

Sarah: I am so excited about this skirt! It is tea length (my favorite skirt length!) and it is floral print (my favorite print!). It also feature lovely pleats along the hips that flare out into larger pleats at the bottom of the skirt. I plan to wear this skirt with a simple navy blue top and denim jacket!

 

Manicure Monday: Coat Couture

Coat Couture by Essie

Coat Couture by Essie

I recently saw Essie’s new collection Cashmere Matte at Target and I fell in love with the color in the bottle. I wasn’t sure what exactly the finish “cashmere matte” would be but I decided to give it a try. The color once it dries becomes way less sparkly but I’m still satisfied with the end result. Coat Couture is a medium grayish-purple with undertones of teal glitter that you can see in the highlights. It’s so pretty!
