Hey, look! I’m actually on time for a Mani Monday. I graduated college this past Saturday so hopefully that will mean that I will post most often and regularly. Because I graduated, I wanted to have some nice nails.
I have a confession to make – I have never been to a nail salon. My main reason is because I just love doing my nails, I find it relaxing. Another is the cost, I can create a decent manicure without paying an outrageous amount of money for it. For my graduation, I was thinking of what my nails were going to be like. Do I get a cute nail polish? Do I go to a salon? What do I do? I decided to meet my thought halfway.
I got the Kiss Nails Gel Fantasy nails in the style Fresh Air. I bought these at CVS and they were a little over $8. They are a nice pink color that matched and complimented my dress.
If you follow my blog, you will notice that I have used press on nails in the past and they haven’t always been the best option. I love these nails, they are short and I feel like I applied the nails better than the last time. Even though I love the nails, there are some issues with them. The glue that it comes with is hard to press out, the tube is hard and when you are applying the nails with the non-dominant hand, it is a struggle. My recommendation would be to either use another type of glue, I saw one that came in a nail polish-type bottle and i feel like that would be better for the application. Also, you could have someone help you.
For a manicure that’s less than $10, these nails are amazing.
For this week, I decided to sparkle. I went with Stevie by Zoya.
This is a beautiful lilac color with lots of glitter. This is one of Zoya’s pixie dust nail polishes which not only include glitter, but texture. I love it, these nail polishes remind me of the L’oreal Paris sparkly nail polishes I love.
What are you wearing this week?
Hey guys! These are my nails for this week. I was looking and looking everywhere for a green nail polish, mostly because green is a color that I don’t wear that often. I found this Sally Hansen nail polish in the color Green Thumb.
I used two coats of the nail polish, and I used my Wet n wild top coat.

There are only a few days before Lovesick closes (at least the one at my local mall). This is so upsetting, I loved Lovesick, it was like a Forever21 made especially for me. Although they didn’t offer Forever 21 prices, they had some cute plus size clothes.
I think it must have been around late March when Lovesick announced it was closing. The official word is that they are taking a break, but I think Lovesick will be gone for good. I hope I’m wrong. I loved that freaking store!
But with closing comes sales and clearance, and I’m all about that life. Here are some outfits that I got: I bought all these items for less than $50!!
The first thing I got was this cute babydoll type of shirt. I paired it with this cute shaggy cardigan.
I got lucky with this one! I bought this $60+ dress for less than $15! It’s missing a belt and it’s a bit too big, but it’s nothing a good tailor can’t fix.
I love, love, love this dress. It’s floral and it has a collar, so beautiful. I bought this dress for less than $10
I got lucky and had a Lovesick at my local mall so I was able to snag all these deals. I think all that I bought was from Torrid. I want to say that Lovesick had 40% Lovesick merchandise, 60% Torrid. It was odd, but I guess it makes sense since Torrid is their sister store.
What is your favorite store?
