I Got Acrylic Nails!!!!!

Hey Lovelies,

Life has been hectic. Work here, university there and somewhere in between all that I’ve kept my social life going. Unfortunately some things have suffered, like my blog and my tv watching and my book reading. With all of these crazy things happening lately I’ve really appreciated my down time and taken extra time just to allow myself to relax. For example, I’ve found it really hard to keep up with doing my own nails at least once a week and I’ve been hating how they’ve been looking. This weekend I was working all weekend and didn’t even have time to see Alex (a.k.a the partner) !!! So instead of the money I would’ve been spending on doing fun things with him I invested in some “treat yo self” time and boy was it fun.

One of my friends has been going to this nail salon close to me for years and they always look fantastic so I finally decided to go and get them done. I’ve had gel done before but never acrylic, people have always told me that they ruin your nails, but after the damage I experienced through press-on nails and gel, I though how much more damage could they be? Also I’ve heard that if you go to the right place your nails will be fine, so I made sure that I went to a good place.

The night before my appointment I was on Pinterest and Instagram just staring at nail pictures trying to decide what to get. I had NO idea. I felt so silly, and when I got to the salon I was just like, “PINK!”.

Envious Nails and Beauty is the name of the salon and I felt very relaxed and taken care of by the ladies there, it wasn’t scary at all (not that I thought it would be). If you’re in Brisbane, Australia, I would say it is definitely a place to check out. Here’s their Facebook Page:¬†https://www.facebook.com/EnviousNailsBeauty?fref=ts.

I can’t wait to rebook and go back, still have no idea what to get but I’m sure I’ll know in the moment.

What’s your favourite way to get your nails done?


Nail Inspirations and Bloggers – #2014BloggerChallenge

Hello Lovelies,

Boy, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but since then, I’ve been sick, the internet went down and not to mention I started back at uni, which made my life super busy. But what better excuse to actually post something decent than post my 2014 Blogger Challenge post.

As much as I wanted to do a NOTD, I really haven’t been loving any of my nail polishes enough to paint my nails. So instead of showing my nails, I thought I’d share some of my fellow bloggers and instagramers and their amazing fingertips, in no particular order of course.

Geeky Owl

This blog has to be one of my favourites, all of her designs are so creative and I love seeing her nail creations. Here is her latest post.

The theme was Mardi Gras, and it’s so awesome and totally takes in the bright colours that surround that particular event.

The Happy Sloths

Every time one of Jasmine’s posts pop up on my feed I get so happy, since they are always so incredibly cute. She utilizes a lot of nail decals and they always work for her and go amazingly with her polishes. Here is her latest post.

Love that mustache!

Ginger Loves Makeup

When it comes to Ginger’s nail related posts, I just love her selection of polishes, they are always so gorgeous. Here is her latest post.

Such a stunning teal shade!

Paint Those Piggies!

If I could get any nail/beauty blogger to do my nails it would be Erin from Paint Those Piggies, her designs are so unique and I wish I had her talent. Here is her latest post.

Anniep1124 – Instagram

Although Anniep1124 doesn’t specialise in nail art or design and instead is the instagram account for an online jewellery store, she still shows some gorgeous fingertips. Here is two of their latest nail arts.

Who’s your nail inspiration?
