So my latest social media obsession has been with Pinterest, which is all about pictures and what inspires a person. I love it because I have been able to find inspirational photos and ideas that I can re-create whether its for the home, makeup, hair, or nails and we all know I heart nail ideas. I came across this really cool design with black polish and a gold cross so I thought I would try it on one nail and I loved it so much that I will do this again with other color palettes and maybe on all nails.
What do you think? Yay or Nay?

So I decided to do something different this week and do OPI Designer, De Better on four fingers on each hand and a Baby Blue Polish (some off brand) with OPI Gone Gonzo on each ring finger. I like this a lot and will be experimenting with other colors and will post so come back to check it out.

Chipped Tips...Who Loves That??



Don't you just hate it when as soon as you get your nails done, you turn around and they are already chipped. I know I do but you can't help it as you use your hands to do everything; wash dishes, clean the house, open doors and etc. I am praying to the nail gods that one day they will create a regular polish that will NOT chip (as I don't do gel or strip manicures). But for right now I guess a anti-chip top coat would do the trick.

Below are three anti-chip top coats that will make our manicure last longer.
