Today’s design is easy and festive.

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!

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”

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

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.

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.

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.

Happy Friday! Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend.

As I mentioned last week, Ryan and I spent time in Tahoe a few weeks ago, here is another foto from our trip.

WinterSunset 2012

Story behind foto: took the foto a few days into our trip after it had been snowing for about two days straight. We decided to put on our snow clothes, layers were necessary, and take a “walk” outside the condo where we stayed. For me it had been at least 4 years since I had seen or touched snow, to say the least I was very excited. We got in touch with our inner child and had a snowball fight; it was so much fun! Once that was over I took foto’s and here is one taken toward the end of our walk.

And if you must know… yes, we made snow angels too.

Happy New Year!!! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season surrounded by family, friends and loved ones.  The beginning of a new year always inspires me to create new memories, to grow as an individual, and to gain wisdom.  Wish you all an awesome 2013!!

Here’s the first Foto Friday of 2013:

Tahoe 2012 A

Story Behind Foto: last month Ryan, my boyfriend, and I took a trip to Tahoe, Calif. During our week stay we explored South Lake Tahoe, however, we did not ski nor snowboard because there was little snow. Because we were unable to do typical snowy weather activities we did a lot of low key type of activities such as going on walks and hanging out in the casinos. Oh, and eating a lot of pizza and locally brewed beer, yum. Moving on, on day two we took a little walk in low 30s degree weather, I understand this may be the norm for some, but for me it was super cold temperature. It was actually really nice, I went off the trail and took some amazing photos this is one of my favorites.

Have you ever been to South Lake Tahoe? If so, tell us about it.

Hope you enjoy and cheers to new beginnings.
