Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July full of BBQs and fireworks!
These were the nails I sported on this lovely day.

I received my new Bundle Monster set the other day and this was my first time using them.
 Sorry I'm terrible at posting. I forget to take pictures of my nails so I never have anything to post. I'll try to get better :)

Pokemon: Gotta Catch 'Em All!

Hey Ladies,

I told myself I wouldn't do my nails or post on my blog until I finishes cleaning but I needed a break.
I have a list of nails I want to try and the Pokeball and Pikachu nails were on the top of my list. I still haven't finished unpacking my nail stuff so I used the tip of a pencil to do all of the designs. I used this tutorial to create the Pikachu nails.

My graduation party is in 2 days and I want to think of something fun for my nails. I'm not too skilled with free hand but I was thinking about trying tuxedo nails. Any other suggestions?

Hey blog world!

CVS is having a sale on the new wet and wild polish! It's only 99 cents but there was a coupon for $1 off in the newspaper! I just looked up which paper and it said "RP 5/13 9 (exp 6/30)" I don't know what that means exactly but maybe some of you do.  Even though it expires in a month, the polish is only on sale this week so hurry! Since I'm a broke college student (actually I just graduated!) I jumped on this deal and bought 25 polishes!!! Yes I may have gone overboard but for free and for 99 cents you can't really go wrong :D
These are the ones I bought. I'm not really the swatch type but I might throw them in my next few manis. If you really want to see one let me know and I'll post it. I really like the 3rd to last polish! it kind of looks like oil and it reminds me of a Chanel polish I saw a while back. I'm a bit worried that it won't come out as pretty as it looks in the bottle but I'll let you guys know how it goes.

On another note, I'm back home for the next 3 months which means I will be blogging again! I missed my blog (and having time to do my nails!!!!!) but now that I graduated college I have plenty of free time until August 22nd when I leave for med school.

So thank you to those of you that continued to  follow my blog even though I never updated it! I promise I'll post all the time for the next 3 months and I'll hopefully have a giveaway and a contest of some kind as well ^_^

Remember me?

Hey ladies!

Thank you so much for continuing to follow me even though I haven't posted in months. I can't promise I'm going to post more often but I do have a post today! I've been really busy at school and now that it's my winter break I've been busy finishing up my med school applications. I have been doing my nails and I took pictures expecting to eventually do a huge post on all my nails over the semester but sadly something happened with the formatting on my microsd card in my phone and I can't get anything back :( Anyway, on to the nails!

I subscribe to a few different nail vlogs on youtube and I found something I wanted to try. here's a link!

And here is my attempt at these lovely nails.

I attempted to stop the glare in this pic but the colors look a bid faded.

I used a bunch of Revlon polishes; Guava (base), Black  Lingerie (black), Ocean Breeze (blue), and Golden (gold). I also used NYC Big Money Frost for the green. This was actually my first time using a thin brush. I usually just use a tooth pick to do my lines but it's about time for me to start using a brush.

So thankd JulieG for your awesome tutorial!

I'm going to try to do one more post before I go back to school but I'm going to try to keep these for as long as I can.

My First French!


Remember when I posted the China Glaze Crackle entry? I wanted those to last all week until my test. I couldn't have failed more at that. While I was studying I somehow had the urge to peel off the polish! I was doing it kind of subconsciously and I tried to stop but I would keep catching myself doing it. So after a few days of re-doing them, I decided to take it off and try something new. My french tip guides came in the mail and I was planning on saving them for the first mani after my test but it was Thursday already and I was told that I should relax and not study the day before the MCAT.  I half listened to that advice and studied until noon and then did my nails after lunch. I wanted to try out Sally Hanson - Pacific Blue, so I guess this is my first official swatch too.
Sorry my camera isn't that great. The color is pretty accurate though. I've wanted a pretty blue for a while and when I saw this one I fell in love. It's so creamy and beautiful!!! It went on really well and I didn't have any trouble. For once it's not even messy around my cuticles! I was going to keep my nails as is but I just couldn't leave them plain so I tested out the tip guides.

 I used Revlon - Metallic and m57 for this one.

The first picture is color accurate but I thought it came out clearer with the flash on. 
I really liked how they came out and they looked especially pretty after a coat of Seche Vite
My mom didn't like the leopard print on the tips. She said it looked like it was peeling off.

I'm going to Alexandria, Virginia tomorrow ans I'll be in the DC area until Saturday. Does anyone know any good nail polish supply stores or anything fun to do while I'm there?

StyledOn Facebook Contest

Hey everyone,

I entered the StyledOn nail contest on facebook a few weeks ago. I would really appreciate some voting love : ) You can vote every day! Sadly I wont even be able to vote everyday because I'll be on vacation so I can use all the help I can get. These were the nails I submitted. You may remember them from an earlier post.

Thanks! And let me know in the comments if you entered too so anyone who reads this blog can vote for yours as well.


I want to start off by apologizing for the lack of posts. I took my MCAT on Friday morning and I was planning on posting when I got home but I had to go out and enjoy my summer :). I have 3 weeks until I go back to school and I get to spend them NOT STUDYING! I've already gone to a party, gone to the city, read most of an amazing book (Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua). I have done my nails a bunch over the past week or so but I haven't been posting them so I'll have to get to them eventually.

Yesterday marked the official beginning of shark week! For those of you who are unfamiliar, shark week is when Nat Geo Wild (I think that's the channels name) has a week long marathon of shark shows. I just watched a cool one where they gave a shark an MRI, my favorite has to be the ones when they try to film sharks jumping in the air to catch a seal. Anyway, I decided to do my first fully free-handed nail art. They aren't amazing but I can only get better from here. Plus my nail brushes still haven't come in the mail yet so I had to use a toothpick. I did buy a brush in China Town today for $1 though so I now have one.

Without further ado,

 The thumb is a hammer head shark :D and I got super lazy when I got to the pinky haha
 Later in life I will hopefully look back at these nails and say to myself "wow I've gotten much better since then" : )

Hopefully I'll post some more tomorrow because I'm leaving for vacation on Wednesday morning and I won't be back until late Saturday Night. Maybe I'll figure out how to schedule posts or something.
