Ocean Manicure

Post Grad summer has turned out to be quite relaxing for such a high stress time. I've really just been enjoying my last bits of freedom ahah going to the beach, hanging out with friends, going to happy hour. I'm also getting super pumped for my South America trip which I will be embarking on in 14 days. To match my bright mood I decided to go with a funkier color than I usually do on my nails.

For my july manicure I decided to go with a beautiful deep turquoise polish "Naughty Nautical" by Essie. Enjoy!

'Merica Nail Art

Happy 4th of July Everyone! What is everyone up to this Independence Day weekend?! I'm going to a friend's lake house outside of LA to celebrate the holiday. I'm usually not the biggest fan of 4th of July in LA. All of the events and parties have felt so scattered to me in the past so I wanted to do something a little more intimate.

For this holiday's nail art I decided to go a bit simple of course using the american flag as an inspiration. I used "Alpine Snow" by OPI for the base coat. Then for the simple stripes I used "Thinking Blue" by Sally Hansen and "Rory Ruby" by Sinful Colors. For the little stars I used a stamping plate by Konad because I find it really difficult to free hand stars on my nails. The color of the stars is "Lily Chrome" by Revlon. Enjoy! Let me know what y'all think!

Emoji Nail Art

Hey everybody, Hope you guys are having a wonderful summer! I have been enjoying my last bits of freedom before I start up graduate school in August so I've just been having fun in the sun, going out with friends around LA checking out the new hotspots and just having a grand ole time. For any of you LA locals I just went to this awesome new speak easy styled bar called No Vacancy in Hollywood that I highly recommend. My good friend from the East coast is also staying with me for two weeks so I'm super stolked about that as well.

For this week's nails I was inspired by one of my favorite neon polishes by FACE, which I used as a base. For the design I wanted to do something fun, funky and summery so I decided to use my favorite emoji faces! Hope you like them! Enjoy! Stay tuned for next week's nails which will be 4th of July themed.

Minnie's Favorite Bow

My 22nd birthday was June 19th and like every 22 year old going on 12 I decided to go to Disneyland to celebrate. My favorite character has always been Minnie Mouse so when OPI came out with a line in her honor I was so excited! I just found out today about a contest OPI is hosting to win the new collection! 

I entered OPI's "Minnie Needs a Mani Contest" with this nail art. There will be a public voting starting Jun 28-30th. If you like my design please vote for me at

Summer Fun Nails

Hey Y'all! Sorry it has been forever since I've updated my blog. I've been road tripping across the U.S since the end of May and just got back to L.A a couple days ago. We went through the North of the U.S hitting up some amazing spots. My favorite city was definitely Chicago it is so beautiful and fun and bustling. If it wasn't so cold during the winters I would totally love to live there. My favorite national parks were Yellowstone in Wyoming and Arches National Park in Utah. We saw three bears in Yellowstone! There were also some really beautiful natural wonders throughout the park like the hot springs. 

After the long road trip I was in desperate need of a mani pedi so I decided to go with some fun summer colors. For my manicure I chose a fabulous Malibu Barbie pink to celebrate my coming home "I Mainly Eat Lobster" by OPI. For my toes I decided to go with a funkier color "Banana Bandana" by OPI. Enjoy!

Graduation Nail Art

Guess what?! I'm graduating from college on saturday! Woohoo! Finally! I'm have a new outfit for every night of the weekend and needed the perfect nails to go with them! I decided on a simple purple and white polka dot design to complement my many dresses. For the white I used "Alpine Snow" by OPI and the purple is "A Grape Fit" by OPI. Next week I will be embarking on a cross country road trip so we'll see where my nails my take me during the trip! Enjoy!

Princess Nail Art

First off I want to start this post with a "IM DONE WITH COLLEGE!!!!" shout out. Four years finally over, now all I have to do is attend graduation next week. After graduation I will be doing a cross country road trip with my Boyfriend which I'm super excited about and I'm moving back to LA to start graduate school in the fall. Yipee!

This week's nails I wanted to do some free style nail art. I was inspired by the funky, gorgeous royal blue polish "Butter Please" by Essie to do a fun Basquita-esk design. Let me know what y'all think!
