Neutrals feat. Taffeta by Gelish

Hey loves!

Your girl is back to show you the nails of one of my clients.

Jenny is an RN in pediatric surgery. So not only is she rough on her hands but she also doesn't have the time to be painting them every other day. She wanted colour that could last longer than 2 days so I recommended she give Gelish a try. Due to her professional obligations she requested a neutral shade so we went for Taffeta which is a very sheer pearly pink. 

We did 4 coats just to even things out. The smile line is still visible but the nails have that healthy look to them. I enjoyed working on Jenny. That's one smart cookie right there! She blessed me with some awesome knowledge and wisdom. That's what so great about what I do. I get to make people feel pretty but in return my clients bless me with advice, laughter, compassion and so much more. 



Nurse Jenny called to surgery, STAT! lol

Animal print feat Sarah aka DoubleXL

Hey loves!

Can you believe that this is my 100th post?!? Wow. 

Today's post is a quickie. When fellow blogger Sarah aka DoubleXL from Queen Sized Flava called wanting to do her nails for her trip to New Jersey's Full Figured Fashion Week I just had to find a way to squeeze her in. 

Sarah is a bold and vibrant young woman so I knew that her nail swag had to match! Miss DoubleXL is a sucker for animal print (as is yours truly) so she opted for a funky leopard print. At her request, I laid down 2 coats of China Glaze's Poinsettia as a base for all fingers (except the ring finger) and created the spots with China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy and a black nail art pen. I then inverted the colours on the ring finger. 

The evening ended way late as we got sidetracked with girl talk. You have to love a fierce chick. The nail porn was a courtesy of Sarah (thanks chica!) Be sure to check her out at for full coverage of New Jersey's Full Figured Fashion Week and all things related to beauty, plus-sized fashion, self-esteem building and more! 


You just can't go wrong with animal print.

Guess who's back?

Hey guys!

Long, long, looooog time no blog… I really had a lot of things to deal with in my personal life and as much as I missed blogging I had other things to focus on. I think it's now safe to say that things are falling back into place for me and so I am glad to announce that I am back. Thank you all for sticking with me and continuing to check out my blog even through this recent dry spell. 

I might have been gone for almost a month but I've still been doing nail polish related things and so I'm taking my time and preparing posts for you guys. Still, I couldn't leave you without some nail porn so today I decided to show you my new obsession: Gelish soak-off gel polish!

Okay so this product is right up there with CND's Shellac but with a much wider color selection. If you want vibrant colors, incredible shine and beautiful chip-less nails for at least 2 weeks then you want to get into this. I currently own 15 shades of it and I am in LOVE. My sis Mims was kind enough to be my guinea pig. She's wearing 2 coats of Tiger Blossum. 


No dry time and the shine? Bananas. The picture doesn't do it justice.
