Starlight Manicure

I am a little bit obsessed with nail polish. I have been collecting nail polish since I was about 12. I love all the creative ideas out there today, in particular the mix and match nails looks.

For this look I used Loreal Stroke of Midnight as the solid colour and Essie Ignite the Night as the glitter polish.

1. I put 3 thin coats of Stroke of Midnight on the solid nails and 1 thin coat as a base for the nails that were going to have the glitter polish on them.

2. Then for the glitter nails I put 2 coats of Ignite the Night over top.

3. To finish off I put a coat of Revlon clear nail polish in Natural over all each nail.  I find that it makes my nails look really shiny and it does not chip off as fast as some other top coat nail polishes.  Using the clear nail polish allows you to put a very thin layer evenly all over each nail.

A Bedroom Inspired by the Natural World

I am planning on putting a nice bedroom together in the upcoming future, I would say re-decorate but my bedroom is not actually decorated and is more structured for purpose and storage, a look I have been planning to do away with for a while now.  One of my goals for 2014 is to be more financially strategic  and save and plan for home improvement projects.  Heres one idea.

Black Gold

This is a simple look that you can dress up or down depending on your choice of shoes.  I choose the "dress up" shoes for this post.  I love black and gold right now.  I like this look because its dressy enough to go out in but the shirt and the pants are really comfortable.

Visions of Gold

H&M Inspiration

This is a lovely outfit that can be worn out for a day of shopping or to a casual evening event. Love the necklace. I tried the blazer on at H&M and it was really nice, unfortunately they did not have my size. Oh well, the search for the perfect blazer continues!
