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!
