Stella Chroma Luxe Chrome Trio Gradient with Stamping

Press Sample

Today is Saturday. I put this manicure on Monday, and I am still wearing it. No chips. I love Stella Chroma!! So Pam from Stella Chroma shared a post from Nails by Yatyara and she did a gradient of the three new Stella Chroma Luxe Chromes that will be available 8/31 (swatches to come next week!). Seriously, go look at her Instagram! After I picked my mouth off the floor, I couldn't get that gradient out of my head! So I needed to do it, just like her :)

Chevron Nail Art with KBShimmer Summer Vacation Collection

Press Sample


Hello All! I'm officially back from my two week vacation! I flew out to Portland, Oregon and then rented a car and drove to Rapid City, South Dakota. We drove a total of 2105.3 miles and went through 4 states and I think 9 National Parks! WHEW! Before I left, I planned on chopping my nails off, and then my middle (ALWAYS MY MIDDLE!) nail decided to break! Guess it was meant to be! Anyway, this was the last manicure I wore before leaving on my vacation, and now I get to share it with you!
