From my trip on saturday, @opi_products “Ds Extravagance”. oh my god, this is new in my top tens. the formula is phenomenal. so buttery and smooth, i had little to no cleanup to do. it’s a cranberry fuchsia scattered holographic polish i found at kroger. So, SO worth the $12. 11/10 recommend. (im going to try and take most of my photos outdoors because the lighting is gorgeous! unless of course its shady, thats not good for holo 😁)

So gorgeous, and its from the Gwen Stefani 2014 holiday collection! “Fashion A Bow” 😻 honestly i just want to wear this forever 😃

Hello! This is a tutorial on how I paint my nails. I know, riveting.
The first step is to remove any existing polish. I did this step off camera.
Then I’ll push back my cuticles. Usually I’d use cuticle remover, but I wasn’t feeling it.
The next step is file your nails if you need to! Since I just broke a nail, I’ve chopped mine uber short, so it was a bit unnecessary.
After this you will clean the nail by dehydrating it with acetone or a nail dehydrator.
This is an optional step which some people might not even need, but I start out with @sally_hansen Nail Strengthener.
I then put on a base coat. Normally I’d use @superchiclacquer ‘s Base coat, but I plan to take these nails off tomorrow so I went with a peel off base coat. @americanclassicstreatments Yellow stopper to be exact!
Then I take my polish on my brush, (Im using @chinaglazeofficial “Accent Piece”) And get a little on my brush. I can’t tell you how much polish to have on the brush, because everyone’s nails are different. Some may be wider or skinnier, and it differs from person to person!
I use the three stroke method, which is one stroke down the middle, then down on both sides. You will need to wrap the tip of your nail if you have longer nails! Nails are like snowflakes, they’re not all the same!
Then I take a cleanup brush (which for me is a terrible little art brush, @twinkled_t please send me real brushes im in desperate need 😅) and clean up the little bits of polish I may have gotten on my skin or near the cuticle.
You also see me leave a gap between the polish on my nail plate and my cuticle, and you must do this! It prevents flooding and ultimately looks better. Makes for a less messy cleanup as well.
Then go on with your second coat (if you need it) and then finish off with topcoat.
It doesnt matter if it’s a matte topcoat, a glossy topcoat, whatever. Unless you’re wearing a textured polish and you want it to be textured, add topcoat! It prolongs the wear time of your polish.
Thank you all for watching!

Happy November 1st! Holy Crap this year has gone by fast. Now, for most people (myself somewhat included) november first is when we begin to bring out the christmas colors!! But, for me, it’s national type one diabetes day!!!! Woopee! Not something to really “celebrate” so to speak, but I am actually a victim of the disease. In a short description, Type One Diabetes (T1D for short) is an auto-immune disease where the pancreas produces none of the hormone “Insulin”. There is no known cause, and sadly, no cure. I got it when I was 4, and I’m fourteen now. So, its my ten year anniversary of T1D! 😝What you see me holding here is called a “Pump”. The brand and model I use is the Animas Ping. This acts as a pancreas. You tell it how much insulin you need to give yourself, and it pushes insulin out of a little vile, through a tube, into the needle on your skin. Theres many types of pumps, and theres an alternate which is injections or shots. Personally, I still cannot stand shots so thats not an option for me 😁. If you can donate anything to @jdrfhq then it would bring us one step closer to finding a possible cure! Now, enough about my sad disease, lets talk about what i’m wearing! •
This is @opi_products “All I Want For Christmas” from the Mariah Carey 2013 holiday collection. Wow this is beautiful 😍 it looks just like her santa outfit from her “All I Want For Christmas” music video! A huge stainer though! Very water-ey wet formula and easy to flood the cuticles with, but you could probably make it thicker by putting it in the fridge overnight! Shown here is 2 coats.
Love you all! 💓💓💓💓
