Influenster Sample

Rollercoasterrrrr of LOOOOOOOVEEE! Good luck, my well polished friends, on getting that little wormy guy out of your ear. It's always a challenge to think of fun Valentine's Day nail art ideas year after year, you know, since hearts are hard to reinvent. haha The pressure! What's a new take on love?! This year, I turned to some of my favorite things for inspiration, things like pizza, lettering, and rollercoasters! Read on for more & to see what I used!

Welcome to my Fragrance Wardrobe!

Nothing to Disclose

I've got a bit of a fragrance problem. I don't tend to stick to one fragrance–I have a 'fragrance wardrobe' that I can pull from so I can always wear a scent that fits my mood for the day. Still, there are definitely some favorites that get more wear than others, and that's what I'm sharing with you today! 

I should mention that I don't tend to tend to wear typical 'girl' scents. I stay away from gourmand scents with sugar, vanilla, or chocolate notes. Aquatic scents aren't really my style either- they tend to smell far too sweet on my skin. What do I like? WOOD. I loooove deep, masculine woody scents, and anything with oud is sure to be a quick favorite for me! (as you'll see below) I also don't like wearing what everyone else is wearing - if someone else in the room is wearing it, I tend to shy away from it. Sure, there are exceptions, but for the most part, I could be considered a slight scent snob.

What are your favorite scents? Read below to find out about a few of mine!

Pizza My Heart - Valentine's Day Nail Art!

Nothing to Disclose

It's T minus 21 days until V-day. Now is the time to start with Valentine's Day designs, at least here in the blogosphere. Today's nail art is an homage to one of my all-time loves, an undying love that I'm pretty sure Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross sang a duet about. You guessed it... it's pizza! We've had something special going on for longer than I can remember, and more years than I'd care to admit. ;)

The inspiration for this came from so many places that I don't think I could name just one, but I love how they turned out!

Is pizza your one true love? We can totally share, but only if you don't want anchovies. ;) *pineapple is acceptable, despite what Gordon Ramsay says.

What I used:

Light Blue: KIKO Nail Lacquer in 340
Pizza Crust: Essie Bags to Riches
Pizza Sauce: Essie Alligator Purse
Cheese: H&M Masala Chai
Pepperoni: Essie Alligator Purse
Browned Cheese: ancient H&M polish in Rust
Black: Twinkled T Stamping polish in black

Topcoat: Glisten & Glow Top coat

It's the Thrill of the Chill!

Press Sample

We don't get much in the way of snow here in Vegas, so I tend to live vicariously (and happily) through my friends and family back home in Michigan. It never fully feels like winter here; sure, we get the odd days or weeks when it's super chilly–even freezing–but I never have to shovel my driveway or scrape my windshield, which is AWESOME. Why am I yammering on about snow and cold? Because I have the new Morgan Taylor Thrill of the Chill nail polish collection to show you, and you're not gonna want to miss it!
