Story Behind Foto: a few days ago I joined my boyfriend on one of his weekly fishing trips. Okay, in reality I decided to be a good girlfriend by joining him on his number one hobby. As he was fishing I was taking sunset foto’s and taking in the scenery. Now I understand why he does this so often, it is peacefully quiet out there!

Here’s one of my favorite foto’s from that evening; I took it as we were leaving. Isn’t it lovely?! I think so.

Story behind foto: It’s Friday, weekend is only a few hours away and I feel like a nice tall glass of red wine – Zin. 

“Red red wine you make me feel so fine

You keep me rocking all of the time

Red red wine you make me feel so grand

I feel a million dollars when your just in my hand…”

What wine do you prefer?

Story Behind Foto: My favorite season is Summer! I love the weather, even though in the valley we get triple digits quite often. However, I thoroughly enjoy waking up to a bright sunny morning. My favorite time during summer is around 10:30am, it is still warm enough outside but not quite hot yet, it feels even better when there’s a slight breeze. My favorite time of the day!

When I lived in Southern California and hear the song below, I would imagine myself driving a convertible down PCH, taking-in the beautiful scenery and watching the sunset. Oh how I miss those beautiful sunsets over the ocean.

Welcome to C to C Friendspirations! We’re really excited to share our favorite summer nail polish, thus far, with you all.

Check out Cristy’s: 

Sinful Colors – Innocent. A lime green polish with a close resemblance to DID IT ON EM from the OPI, Nicki Minaj nail polish line. I typically use this one on my toes, but whenever I feel like being a bit wild, I definitely break out my Innocent polish.

Green Nails

L.A. Girl Disco Brights – Dance Craze. The picture does not do this polish justice, Dance Craze is more of a peach color with strong orange undertones and it is by far my favorite of the four. I’ve been rocking this most of the summer.

Orly – Crush on You. A muted tangerine color. Typically I avoid orange polishes as they remind me of Halloween, but this one hits the spot for me. It’s a muted orange and it has a very fresh and summer feel.

Orange Nails

ORLY – Passion Fruit. A bright,  borderline highlighter pink polish. Not only does it dry super fast, but the color just makes me feel happy, not to mention it does not chip easily.

Cat’s faves: 

Sally HansenBarracuda, a beautiful milky blue. Barracuda is definitely one of my top 5 favorites of all time.

Barracuda

Essie’s- In The Cabana,  a deeper teal. I recently purchased this one and I absolutely love it, but be sure to wear a base coat because it stains.

Rimmel London – Mintilicious. The picture does not show its true color, it dries to a gorgeous teal leaning more on the green side.

Orly’s – White Tips. A plain white, nothing super special about it, except for when I wear it I feel crisp, clean, and tan. It would not be summer without a little white polish in the mix.

As you can tell, we’re polar opposites!

Feel free to share your favorite summer colors with us.

Hi there, welcome back to day two of our 2013 4th of July Nails series!

Today’s design is easy and festive.

4thofJulyNails10

Here are the products I used:

(Red) China Glaze “Cranberry Splash”

(White) Orly “White Tips”

(Blue) Julep “Ally”

(Glitter) Julep “Fireworks”

Small fine brush

I started off by painting my nails a solid white.

Then I painted on Red and Blue stars.

Finally, I add a tiny bit of glitter on the edges. I could not help myself; “Fireworks” by Julep is like Fourth of July in a bottle! I LOVE it!

4thofJulyNails09

Well, here’s the final design. Remember to top it off by using a clear top coat.

Come back tomorrow to see Cristy’s design.

Thank you for your visit,

P.s. the design was inspired by Miss Jen Fabulous, check out her YouTube channel.

Here’s the first in our 2013 4th of July Nails Series.

Products I used:

(Red) China Glaze “Cranberry Splash”

(White) Orly “White Tips”

(Blue) Julep “Ally”

4thofJulyNails06

Start by painting your nails with a white base on your four fingers, and blue on the thumb.

4thofJulyNails01

Then I added tiny “stars” on my thumb. Be sure the polish is still wet to secure the stars and top it off with a clear coat. Remember you can always pain on little stars or simply use a silver glitter polish to resemble stars.

4thofJulyNails02

Next, use painter tape and cut little strips. Add those strips to your four fingers with the white base.

4thofJulyNails03

After, add red polish on top of your four nails. Let the polish dry for a few seconds and peel off.

4thofJulyNails04

Remember to add a top coat to add shine and here you have the final look!

4thofJulyNails05

The design is quick and easy to re-create. Go ahead, rock that flag!

Thanks for your visit, remember to come back tomorrow for a new look.

I found this quote through Pinterest and I find it so inspiring and spot on. Sweet and to the point!
