KBShimmer - Fall 2016

Hello, hello! Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend :) I have another Fall collection to share with you today, this time from KBShimmer! It never fails, each season I love seeing what Christy and her crew have dreamed up this time. They really excel at capturing the feel of the different seasons and I'm always swooning over their crellies. Always just the right amount of glitter to creme.

Anyhow, I'm always excited for the KBS collections as they help me feel like the seasons are changing. So, let's dig in!

Bridesmaid Boxes - How I Asked My Girlfriends to be in My Wedding!

nothing to disclose 

Hello, hello! So as you all may know by now, I'm getting married in just under 2 months! *gasp/faint/squeal* I am so incredibly excited for the big day but I've been so busy with work and wedding planning that I know it's left me neglecting my passion for nail art and blogging. So, I figured I'd try and combine the two in a series and share some tid bits of my planning.

One of the more fun projects I've done so far for the wedding was putting together my bridesmaid boxes! While I knew my girlfriends would all say yes, I wanted to put together boxes to officially ask them to be my bridesmaids. I took some inspo from things I saw in Pinterest, but in the end, I think I made it my own!

Spell Polish - Time Traveling Collection: Swatches & Nail Art

press sample 

Hello my friends! I have a new to me collection to share with you today - the Time Traveling Collection by Spell Polish! I have been so busy lately but I've been dying to share these. This fall collection is inspired by memories from the past and I love that, while the memories are personal to Heather, the lady behind Spell Polish, they are also universal in one way or another and things that each of us can relate to in our own way. 

I did not realize until working with Heather, that she writes poems to coincide with each shade. She then includes a cute little trading card with the polish name and poem with each polish purchased. How cool is that? So let's get started and take a look at the Time Traveling Collection!

Hello, my friends! I seem to say this every time I post, but I have been so busy with work and wedding planning that it's hard to keep up with blogging as well! While, I'm so excited and loving the wedding planning process, I'm also looking forward to having some down time again to be creative and share with you all regularly again :)

But for today, I've got a fun post inspired by one of the tools I use to help keep me on track with all my goals - a mani (or two!?) inspired by the new Erin Condren Life Planners!

Head over to their blog to read my full post and let me know what you think about the looks (and the other ladies who created art as well!).

China Glaze - Rebel: Swatches & Review

press sample

Hello, all! I have a great set of polishes to share with you today from China Glaze! Fall collections are by far my favorite - partly because I love the fall season so much, but also because it's an opportunity for brands to create vampy, moody, edgy, beautiful shades.

Cue the China Glaze Rebel collection. *insert heart eyes* :D as one of the first fall collections I saw this year, I was immediately drawn to the colors but was then even more excited for the inspiration. I was born in 1990 so I wasn't quite old enough to appreciate a lot of the good (and bad!) things about the 90s. But even still, I know almost many of the references made in this collection which made the Rebel collection all the more fun. As always, there are 12 shades in various finishes in this collection so let's take a look!
