ManiMon: My First Revlon and a Sale

IMG_20130825_171154_wmThis past weekend I bought my first bottle of Revlon nail polish. While I heard a lot of great things about Revlon, I have a rule: never spend more than than 5 bucks on a drugstore nail polish. (Although, there IS an exception to the rule: essie. LOL. It’s is my favorite!) Continue reading

Mani Mon: Pastel Party

IMG_20130819_162051_wmHappy Monday, dolls! As the summer comes to an end, I realized I had a few [new] pieces I still hadn’t worn. One piece in particular was a pair of neon pastel coral jeans I bought earlier this summer. I’m not big on OOTDs but since I made a special point to tie my outfit and nails together I’ll share both.

For this look I used two pastels and a glitter because, let’s be honest, I’m addicted to glitter.

IMG_20130819_162201_wmI used Coral Silk from Cover Girl on my pinky – which I have to admit I REALLY liked this time. I didn’t like it the first time I used it for my ombre nails. Check it out here on my thumb. I used Gelato in Venice by Julie G (y’all know I’m obsessed with her line) on my first 3 fingers and on my toes. Finally, I added A Star is Born from Julie G on my ring finger without color underneath. I wanted a pop of glam and I thought the silver glitter was a nice touch.

Here is the outfit.

IMG_20130819_163414_wmI thought the lavender top might be way too off so I tied a pastel multi-colored belt around my waist to bring it all together.

Mani Monday: Blue Universe

IMG_20130812_134552For this mani I tried a “new” glitter nail polish my Photographer boo, Nicole [LINK], gave me. I *think* she said that she tried it but didn’t like it and that she wanted me to have it because she knows how addicted how much I love nail polish. 🙂 Continue reading

Mani Monday: The Perfect At-Home French

www.curlsandmo.com mani mon1 8.5.13Yes, I’ve neglected Mani Monday for a few weeks but I’m back. For real! I haven’t done a design in a while so last week I decided to try out one of the nail art brushes I purchased on ebay. I used to do French pedicures all the time – I’ve always had a steady hand – so I decided try a French manicure. I Continue reading

Mani Monday: “New” Julep May Box

IMG_20130708_182357Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish subscription service. I’ve been a member for a year and a half now. While I love the service and customer service I DON’T order a box every month. What I love about Julep Maven is that you can skip any month without penalty and resume the following month if you like.

Mani Monday – Review: BRUCCI Nail Hardner

curlsandmo.com - manimon 07.01.13When I was little just like my mom’s clothes, I used to try play with her makeup. One nail polish brand I remember vividly that lined her dresser was BRUCCI. I used to beg her to polish my nails and I still remember the few times Continue reading

Manicure Monday: Lady in Red

IMG_20130618_133014_wmFor some reason I am in love with this silver glitter nail polish. It literally rocks my world. I can’t seem to get enough…

I decided to pair the JulieG A Star is Born with my favorite Essie red but of course I couldn’t get the bottle open. Luckily I had my Wet n Wild Everybody Loves Redmond handy – which, by the way, I forgot how much I love. I Continue reading
