Nails of Steel

Have y’all heard about the new nail color for fall? Grey or Gray whichever way you want to spell it.  I think I’m actually going to try it out.  I’m usually an OPI Bubble Bath kinda gal, though I did venture into a two week experiment with lavender this summer and I will sometimes bust out the OPI Red when I’m feeling sassy.  But I do think I want to try out this grey trend for sure, I’m just waiting on my nail place to get some greys in stock.  Have y’all tried this out?  What color have you used?

Sporty Spice Spring Collection, Bring On The Heat!!!

I’m ready for the sun.  Not alot of stores have gone completely tank top, sandals and shorts, but I am definitely ready for a little spring in my step.  Here are a few pieces and items that I plan on adding to my collection.

  1. Francesca’s Hoodie – if it has a hoodie, put my name on it.  These are thin and colorful.  Totally getting it.
  2. Tulle Jacket – because I like to run my AC right about 80 degrees, I will still need something to cover myself through the next few months.  Too cute.  On another note, I have also realized that I am an addict of this sites Tulle’s Day sales.  I racked in 5 nice peices for about 25.00 (including shipping).  You should defintely join their mailing list if you aren’t on it already to cash in on the saving.  Der was in on the last sale too and raked it in as well.  It’s also fun to call random days ‘Tulle’s Day’, I owe that site for that as well!
  3. Roxy Tank – because its cute.  That is all.
  4. Opi  –  Done out in Deco – I own this color already, so I am ahead of game on this one.  I love it because its a  purple nail color, but not completely offensive.  There is a very fine line there ladies.  Very fine.
  5. Old Navy Cargos – am I too old to wear these?  Probably.  Will they flatter my figure?  Most likely not.  Are they badass because they have tiny little paint splatters on them? Hellz yes.
  6. Fossil Crossbody – as long as my obession with cross body bags doesn’t turn to fanny packs, I think the tipsy girls will still dig my style.  I can’t decide if I need this one in red or pink?
  7. Simple Slippers – I’ll need these for when I feel like wearing red seude shoes.  I don’t know about ya’ll but that may just be every day for me.

Nail Emergency? A Mini Mani!

If you are like me, you’ve run out of time to get a manicure in before Thanksgiving.  So I’m going to share with you a little secret combo that will get your nails in decent shape in no time.

ak-mini mani

Brush the OPI oil all along your nail bed, rub that in. Take the Aquaphor lip treatment and dab it at the base of each fingernail, rub that all around.  Then finish everything off with a little squeeze of the Neutrogena Fast Absorbing Hand Lotion.  That’s it!  It’s super quick and it’ll have your fingers looking 1000% better in no time.  I also keep these items in my car* or purse so that if I’m out and about and in need of some nail resuscitation.
