Happy Memorial Day!
Hopefully everyone is enjoying their long weekend. Memorial Day weekend is a very busy weekend in Charlotte because of the Coca Cola 600. I’m not a NASCAR fan (I know very little about the sport) but I do make a point to get up to Speed Street which is a three day festival uptown. This year I lucked out and a band I really like, Parmalee, was playing on Friday night.
Today my family is having a little cook out so I’m looking forward to that.
All that was just an excuse as to why I decided I needed a red, white and blue manicure. I went pretty simple with this manicure and started with essie Private Weekend as my white base. Then I added Finger Paints Red, White and Hue to the base of my nails and topped that with a matte top coat (Pure Ice Frost Finish Top Coat).
The matte finish really made this manicure.
As always, there are swatches under the jump.

The weather in Charlotte has been so lovely lately. Everything is super green and flowers are starting to bloom. So of course I decide to do an all gray manicure. Because…that makes so much sense. But, I do think that gray is truly an all season appropriate neutral so I went for it. For this […] Continue reading →
It’s been ages since I’ve done a DIY! Mostly that’s because nail polish trends have really gone towards creme finish polishes. Nude nails in particular have been really popular and on trend. It seems every time summer rolls around textured manicures make their way back into the conversation. This summer’s textured manicures are really earthy […] Continue reading →
Our national nightmare is over! Spring has finally arrived. And I could not be happier. The weather here in Charlotte this week has been just beautiful; I’ve definitely caught a case of spring fever. My favorite thing about a new season is new nail polish. My favorite Spring collection (so far…) is the essie Flowerista […] Continue reading →
Happy Valentine’s Day! I know not everyone likes Valentine’s Day but I, for one, am a fan of a holiday that celebrates love. And chocolate. Even though chocolate isn’t the point but any holiday is better with chocolate. Anyway. While this manicure is red and pink I still think the fact that the base is […] Continue reading →
It’s that time again for my absolute favorite post of the year. I love looking back at all the fantastic polishes released during the year. This year’s list is interesting. Last year not a single OPI polish made my top 10 list; this year OPI has 2 polishes on the list. Goes to show a […] Continue reading →
While today may be the first day of 2015 lets take a minute to look back at 2014 and all the awesome polishes and things that happened over the past year. 2014 marks the first year my nails appeared in a magazine. My nails graced the pages of both All You and First for Women […] Continue reading →
It’s the last day of 2014! I can’t believe it. But that means one of my favorite holidays is here; New Year’s Eve and New Year’s day. This year I’m going to a Beatles New Year’s Eve event. I’m quite looking forward to it. But first, lets talk about my NYE manicure. Last year I […] Continue reading →
Merry Christmas! I hope everyone who celebrates is having a lovely day with food, family and of course, presents. I wanted to quickly share my Christmas day manicure. I kept it simple this year turning to the ever trusty China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. That polish always seems to come out this time of year! Previously, […] Continue reading →
Oh my goodness y’all, it’s the first day of winter. This is bad news because that means it’s going to start getting cold. And there might even be snow (I do NOT like snow). But the winter solstice is always good news because today is the shortest day of the year and I, for one, […] Continue reading →
