Makeup, fashion, and me.

Summer nail polish colors are all about being bright and perky, with neon oranges and hot pinks. But in the winter time you can match some of your new darker nail colors with you darker wardrobe, and here’s a dark nail polish that I’m especially fond of.

Another thing I love about dark nail polish is that it looks good on short and long nails.

So dive head first into the winter monthes with 1 of this season’s hottest nail colors, dark purple.

This fall it seems most fashion is neutral, full of grays, browns, and whites, but one thing this season’s a loud to be bright, and that’s nails. And the hottest hot color for nails this season? Yellow.

Neon yellow nail polish is all the rage this fall, but keep it matte. Too shiny or shimmery and it starts to loose its chicness.

The other thing I love about neon yellow is that it looks good on short nails too!

I love french nails. They just look so professional. But alas, I am not a professional, and find it pretty hard to create my own DIY

With this kit, you can make your own french nails.

french nails. I am in fact, what I like to call nail-polishly-challanged. But I have found a french nail kit that even I find it hard to screw up with.

It’s called the sally hanson 5 minute french nail pen kit, and it’s pretty simple to use. You just paint your nails with base coat, wait until they dry, then use the pen to create the white line, and bam, your done. The pen works pretty well and is really fun to use. Just make sure you don’t have to much polish on the pen, or you lines will get drippy (learned that the hard way, tehe). It’s so much easier then trying to use a nail polish brush to paint the lines, I can’t even count all the hours I’ve used trying to make a french manicure that way.

Pros-

. Works well.

. Pen is just fun to play with. 🙂

. Pen can create other designs as well.

. Easy to use.

Cons-

. The pen is slightly drippy.

. Hard to achieve strait lines.

‘Its summer! The time to relax,swim, paint your nails… wait a sec, paint your nails, I don’t now what color?!’ Sound like you? Well, don’t worry, because I’m about to tell you a great new nail color! And that nail color is (dim the lights!)… silver!

Silver nails are great because they shine under water (which is perfect for the ocean!), are wonderfully edgy, and make a perfect base for a cool white-and-silver french manicure.

So pop by your local CVS and grab a bottle, because silver is a great new summer nail color and everbody knows it.
