Every Wednesday I go to a local farmer’s market. There’s nothing fancy about the market but it’s one of my favorite weekly chores.
Being that it’s July my farmer’s market trips almost always include a pineapple. And therefore it’s only logical that I rock some pineapples on my nails.
This manicure was really easy to do. I started by using essie First Timer on the nails I was going to add pineapples to.
For the pineapple nails I started off with SinfulColors Snow Me White. Then, using SinfulColors Unicorn and a large dotting tool I created an oval, yellow shape for the base of the pineapple. Then using a nail art brush and First Timer I added the leaves. After I let that dry I used CoverGirl Perfect Penny to give the pineapple some texture and the manicure just a little sparkle.
I let the pineapples dry for about half an hour before topping the pineapple nails with Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat.
This was such a fun, summer manicure. The cashier at the farmer’s market even commented on my nails!
There are more swatches under the jump.

Back in April I ordered this 5 piece dotting tool set from Amazon for $1.79 (with free shipping!). The reviews on Amazon were overwhelmingly positive and I figured for less than $2 I’d take a change on these dotting tools. I’ve done so many manicure with these dotting tools over the last several months and I […] Continue reading →
Ok, look, I know. It is (literally) a hundred degrees outside right now. And yes, I’m talking about an autumn appropriate manicure. But the deborah lippmann fall 2015 ROAR collection has got me dreaming of boots and sweaters and college football and dark nail polish and it’s just not good. But anyhow. I do really […] Continue reading →

In July, Sally Hansen will be adding 6 street inspired Insta-Dri polishes. From the press release: Borrowing from the city-cool of graffiti tags […] Continue reading →
Oh my gosh y’all. I am so tired. After a night out with the bestie on Friday my phone rang at 7:30 on Saturday morning. I rolled over and saw it was the boy calling. He was in Wilmington playing in a golf tournament and wanted to know if I wanted to meet him in […] Continue reading →
As of Sunday I am a year older. Woohoo! I had a lovely weekend with friends and family though the main even was earlier in the week when the boy and I went to see Matt Nathanson, The Fray and Train on the Picasso at the Wheel tour. We had the best time. Anyhow. Orly Bubbly […] Continue reading →
I love this manicure SO MUCH! essie Chillato was the definite stand out to me from the essie Peach Side Babe collection. That being said I wanted to wear Chillato but I also wanted to use my (not so new anymore…) dotting tools. essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is the perfect complement to Chillato. The […] Continue reading →
I like to call this kind of manicure the lazy girl’s way to fix a chipping mani. The inspiration for this manicure came from a picture in a recent Mark catalog. I was already wearing essie Pret-A-Surfer and really love the color. Unfortunately some fairly aggressive gardening didn’t do my manicure any good and I […] Continue reading →
Oh hey. It’s Alli. Back with another manicure that involves polka dots! I’ve always had a thing for polka dots but ever since I ordered a new set of dotting tools from Amazon I’ve been going a bit polka dot crazy. For this manicure I really wanted the polka dots to look like they were […] Continue reading →
It’s no secret I’m totally swooning over Orly Key Lime Twist. Because of that Key Lime Twist has spent a lot of time on my nails. But, I got a new set of dotting tools and I was itching to give them a go. And that’s how this manicure happened. Because Key Lime Twist is […] Continue reading →
