Half Moon manicure

I'm in love with my nails this week!

I decided to cut them short because they were sooo uneven. They grow back I know I have nothing to worry about. .

These nails were achieved using a black from CND Shellac and a gold from color club.

I love the versatility of shellac nails. After getting them done I can do everything I want immediately.

The smallest task such as getting your wallet out to pay can be the biggest task with regular polish. I would always get smudges. Boo!

Are you a fan of the Half Moon trend?

Beauty/Fashion News: Payless, So...? Fragrance & Win a Lifetime of Shellac

New from Payless
 Have you had the time to visit Payless lately? 
A lot of super cute styles have arrived! Perfect for any look that you are going for.
My current favorites are all pretty high but that thankfully they all have a platform!

So...? Fragrance

I'll admit I'm a few years too old for this line: Ages 14 - 25. 
Since I'm all about fruity & fun scents, I decided to try the line.

I work in a scent-free zone. In basic terms we are not allowed to wear any fragrances which may cause headaches, migraines and etc. I can wear these in the office because they are light. Which is pro for me at work but it may be a con for anyone who loves strong bold scents.

How to Remove Shellac, Glitter and Artistic Colour Gloss Nail Polish tutorial

I love wearing nail polish... but I hate the removal. For years, I avoided polishes with serious glitter or anything with gel. Gel required extra time at the salon for removal. One salon quoted me "$15.00 for soak off removal".

Are you serious?!?
That's the cost of 5 Sally Hansen nail polishes..haha.
