KBShimmer | All The Bright Moves

press sample 

Hello, my friends! I hope your week is going well! I've got swatches of the new KBShimmer All the Bright Moves collection to share today. As we're gearing up for summer this set is pretty perfect, don't ya think?

I think I've managed to capture these shades true to life, but neons are always tricky to photograph and each person's computer/phone screen varies...so just keep that in mind! But rest assured, if you're looking for neons, these are them.

From KBShimmer:
Did you spend your Saturday mornings watching Zach and Kelly? Did the Fresh Prince theme song play in your head while you begged for the latest Lisa Frank stickers? Were Caboodles and Trapper Keepers all the rage among your friends? Did you load your arms with jelly bracelets and died without your Aqua Net? Was your scrunchie collection the envy of your friends? If you answered yes, then you might be a child of the late 80’s and early 90’s, the inspiration for KBShimmer’s latest nail polish collection, All The Bright Moves. Based on that time of neon colors, stickers, and big hair, let these 6 neon shades take you back to a time where fashion was so bright, you had to wear shades.

Nail Art: Talavera Mexican Tiles

nothing to disclose 

Hey friends! If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen a sneak peek of today's look on Monday...yep, that's when I painted this! Unfortunately, work and life and trying to stay in some shape other than blob caused me to not have much time during the week for editing of any sort. So here we are, 6 days later ;)

Hey everyone! I've got swatches of the new China Glaze Spring Fling collection to share today! I am seriously loving these colors together, and while some of the individual shades aren't necessarily my style, I think all of these work great for a springtime adventure.

Nail Art: The Planner Society Kit Washi Series - March 2017

press sample 

It's been quite awhile since I've posted here. As has been the theme of my life this past year, I'm just busy. With work and life and blogging has been the thing that gets pushed to the way side. The big thing recently? I MOVED! Yay! My husband and I bought our first home and I couldn't be more thrilled. We are so fortunate.

While it's been radio silence here for awhile, I have been sharing here and there on Instagram...but I'm hoping to get back to posting here as well. I miss the days of long explanations for why I'm doing what I'm doing ;)

Today I've got another look inspired by The Planner Society Kit! You know how I love finding inspiration from washi tape, and Christy's kits are packed full of beautiful prints and patterns that I find so inspiring. This month's kit features pinks and rose gold florals and was lovely in its cohesion.

Zoya Enchanted - Swatches

press sample 

Last, but certainly not least in this epic swatch-shara-thon, is the Zoya Enchanted collection! This was their Holiday 2016 collection and is another set of polishes that I got waylayed in posting due to the wedding, recovering from the holidays, and just general "getting back into the swing of things".

This collection has 4 pixie dusts finishes and 2 shimmers. On the whole it's a really pretty collection, and very much evokes the holiday spirit. That being said, I do think any of these are wearable year round. Let's take a look :)
