Thanksgiving Nail Art

Press Sample

Thanksgiving is next week! My family and I are excited to volunteer at our church serving a free Thanksgiving dinner. It is so much fun and we always get to meet the best people! After that I will be going Black Friday shopping with some friends and my sister. We started going together a few years ago and it's a Thanksgiving tradition for us! Do any of you have Thanksgiving traditions? 

Of course I have to have some fun nail art to match the upcoming holiday! I decided to do brown and gold chevrons. This is easy to do and the single gold chevron is perfect! 
I used
I stated with a base of Spencer, then used my Mini Chevron NailVinyls to mask of my chevrons. I think took the other colors and a tiny brush and painted in my chevron's with random brown colors. I took my NailVinyls off and then topped everything with top coat. Fast and easy!



Can't wait to hear about your Thanksgiving traditions!

Holiday Sweater Nails

I'm giving up grocery shopping. Every time my nails start growing nicely, I break them while grocery shopping. And it's not a tiny break, it's a big, have to chop my nails down break. Who's needs grocery's anyway right? I'm sure my husband will understand...haha!

I used my new plate from MoYou. They are based in England and make the collest stamping plates. I eyed this one last year and decided I had to have it this year. The plate I used is Plate 06 from the festive collection. It currently is sold out but they restock pretty frequently. 

Colors Used 
Salon Perfect - He's With Me and Sugar Cube

Noel Christmas Nail Art


I broke down yesterday and started listening to Christmas music. I couldn't help it, it's been in the negative temperatures here, it's snowing and it feels a lot like Christmas! Of course, I had to have a nail look to match my music choices.

 Colors Used
Bornprettystore.com Plate 01 (use promo MEL91 for 10% off)

I painted all my nails, topped them all with Snowglobe Trotter and then free handed my letter's with Rollin' In Cashmere, I stamped the snowflake from Bornprettystore plate 01 on my middle finger for my O.



Love how these turned out! For my thumb, I painted it green and stamped a snowflake on that one too. 
What would you all like to see next for Christmas/Holiday themed mani's? I would love to know your ideas!


* Born Pretty Store Plate 01 was provided for review. All OPI products were purchased by me.

Salon Perfect Nail It! Exclusive Collection Swatches and Review

press sample


Christmas!! Is it to early to start listing to Christmas music? I've been temped a few times, but I've resisted so far. I love Nat King Cole, he will always bring back so many wonderful Christmas memories! 

Today I have the exclusive Salon Perfect collection for Nail It! 250 people will win one of these aweseome collections! Go to nailitmag.com/perfect-holiday for a chance to enter. 

He's With Me is one of my favorites from the bunch. It's a nice red base with red glitter. I used two coats for the swatch and applied one coat of Salon Perfect Top Coat 



Glam Glitter is red, gold and green glitter. It was really easy to apply, the glitter was small and there was a lot on the brush. I did one thin coat of glitter and an extra coat of top coat. I used this over Salon Perfect Sugar Cube White. 



Christmas Cookie reminds me of the Nailed by the Mod Squad top coats, just Chistmas-fied. I know, I made that word up, but it works! To apply the glitter without getting to much top coat I used a tip I found on Reddit from a fellow lacquer head. I applied the glitter onto a makeup sponge, and then just sponged on the glitter without all the top coat! I did this one over OPI Rollin' In Cashmere.



Champagne Toast, love this one! It is fine gold and holographic glitter in a clear base. It is realy pretty, it reminds me of Fairy Dust, just a gold version and Chrismas-fied. There's that made up word again. I know, the grammar police are going to be mad at me! I did one coat over OPI Christmas Gone Plaid


Snowed In is a  mix of white and silver glitter in a clear base. I did one coat over Salon Perfect He's With Me. I love how it looks like a fine dusting of snow!



The only one I don't have a swatch alone of is Sugar Cube, but you can see that one under Glam Glitter. It was a great white, easy to apply and two coats got me full coverage.
