Poppin’ Nail Color of the Week: Ulta Salon Formula Alter Ego

I was feeling like wearing something a little darker than the usual bright and cheery pink, yellows, and orange nail colors, that I have been wearing lately. I just bought this nail color, and it was perfect shade of blue. This color is poppin’ because there is a hint of silver shimmer in it so it’s not a bland. If they made blue foil, this is what it would look like. I think.


Quick Update

Just a quick update. Finally on vacay and internet service is very sporadic, so post for the next few weeks will be. I will post as often as possible.

Bling Bling! Nail Bliss Bling Appliques Review

I finally did it. I don’t know why I put it off for so long. I think perhaps I was waiting for some major event so that I could show off my blinged out nails in style. That major event never happened, so I decided to wear my styling nail art anyway.


Multi-Colored Colorblocked Nail Look

So I’ve been m.i.a for a few weeks, and that was purely laziness! I do go through spurts of not doing my nails, and this was one of those times. I did my nails only once and I let the polish stay on til they were way past chipped and exhausted. Now they are naked. Boring but convenient.

Anyway, have yall heard about or implented the color lock style into your wardrobe or look? It is everywhere from clothes to makeup, so you know nails weren’t too far behind.  I’m totally loving it, and I decided to experiment a few weeks ago.

When I first decided that I wanted to try it out, this was not the look I envisioned. I thought more along the lines of a two toned, side-by-side look, but I still like what I ended up with.

I had been wearing the purple polish for a few days, and had just bought some new polish and wanted to try it out on the way home (I wasn’t driving!). Since I can’t get a straight line while riding in a car, when I got home I decided that a black line across would help cover that up stylishly. The reason that my nails are different colors is that I wanted to experiment and see which nail color looked best against my purple base. I ended up loving it, and doing my other hand the same way.

I will probably try colorblocked nails again at some point in the future, and try to mix it up a bit. Do you like the colorblocked nail trend? What are some looks that you have come up with?
