Loving Lately: Spring Finds + Favorites

Loving Lately: Spring Edition

I’ve been a little off the grid the last few months (though you can always find me on Instagram), but I thought I’d return to the blogosphere to share a few of my favourite things, ranging from beauty, to fashion and tech.  (more…)

Sparkling Champagne NYE Nails

image

So we could look at this one of two ways. We could view this as me being two months late posting about my New Year’s Eve manicure…

OR, we could look at this as me being ten months early for this year’s New Year’s Eve. I lean towards the latter. You know, just in case you’re already looking for some NYE 2015 mani inspiration. Good for you, non-procrastinator. (more…)

Nails of the Week: Holiday Red

This is the nail polish I was wearing at my birthday party and for the past week. I wanted something that fit the 1940s theme for my outfit, but also something that was festive and December-appropriate. So, red it was! (more…)

Nails of the Week: Frosty Silver Bells

image

It’s officially December, which means I’m 100% justified in indulging in hot chocolate, Christmas music, holiday movies, and all things sparkly throughout the month. It’s no wonder it’s my favorite time of year! (more…)

Nails of the Week: Fancy French

I try to do my own nails whenever possible, but there are two things I just can’t do myself: Shellac and French manicures. So when I went to get my nails done last week, that’s what I got the professionals to do. (more…)

Nails of the Week: Midnight at Sea

If you read my Fall Nail Polish Picks post, then this week’s manicure choice should come as no surprise: Butter London’s “Royal Navy”. (more…)

Nails of the Week: Brushed Gold

I’ve been a terrible blogger this week – forgive me! I have a ton of posts lined up and photographed, but I just haven’t been able to find the time to edit the photos & write them this week. It’s been a busy one!  (more…)

Nails of the Week: Sexy Patent Red

This week, I decided to channel my inner Joan Holloway (from Mad Men), with some bangin’ long, shiny, retro red nails.  (more…)

Fall Nail Polish Picks

image

When the weather gets cooler and the air and leaves turn crisp, it’s time to switch gears from summer into fall. 

Autumn is full of rich colours – from the leaves turning golden, crimson, and brown to vibrant orange pumpkins and knit sweaters. I love wearing rich colours on my nails, too – especially deep reds, golds, and jewel tones. (more…)

Nails of the Week: Autumn Editon

Fall is well and truly here. And to celebrate, I’ve transitioned from brights & pastels to dark, rich nail colours, like this one: Nicole by OPI in “Black Cat-Cha Later”. (So spooky.) (more…)

Nails of the Week: Mint & Gold

image

I’m on the brink of diving headfirst into fall polish colors (how I love my deep reds and jewel tones), but while the weather is still relatively warm and autumn hasn’t fully come to town, I thought I’d do one final summer manicure, as a “last hurrah” of sorts. (more…)

Nails of the Week: Summer Brights

image

Now that we’re properly into August, I wanted a manicure that reflected the last of these hot(ish) summer days. 

I painted my nails an almost neon coral pink, using Butter London’s “Trout Pout”, then used Revlon’s “Jaded” to add mint polka dots on my ring finger. (more…)

White Hot Summer

After rocking deep red shellac nails for over a month, I was ready for a dramatic change. I took my time browsing the whole selection of nail colours available at the salon today, waiting to spot one that was just right.

I have a job interview on Thursday (fingers crossed!), and am starring in a short film my friend is writing/directing this weekend, so the colour couldn’t be anything too crazy, for both reasons. When I saw this gorgeous white, I was sold. Not too sheer nor too opaque (think: White-Out) it’s the summertime spin on the nude nail. (more…)

Summer Nail Polish Picks

I did one of these posts in the spring, so I thought I’d share an edit of my favorite summer-inspired nail polishes too. They’re bright, cheerful, and perfect for a day in the sun. (more…)
