I try to avoid polishing my nails at home because it’s always a major fail. Between taking care of the kids and handling household chores, I could never complete both hands or even get them to fully dry without a smudge. On top of that, the darn polish only lasts for a day or two after all that work.
So a few weeks ago when I got the latest SinfulColors Spring Fever Collection, I was both excited and overwhelmed at the thought of taking on such a challenge. How would I make it to the second coat without Jordan needing a diaper change? Would I really have time to sit and wait for these nails to dry before getting a snack request from Blake?
I always enter the nail salon with the intention of getting some super-trendy, eye-catching design. Then 10 minutes into my mani I get practical.
I’m a minimalist when it comes to my nails, and the craziest I’ll get is bright yellow or orange polish. As a mommy of a 2 year old and 4 year old, I also prefer to keep my nails short and think it’s not an ideal length for fancy nail charms, stones and art.
Well, after finding some simple yet eye-catching nail designs on Pinterest, I’ll have to rethink my weekend mani ideas. These trendy winter nail colors and designs are the perfect look for short nails.
At this moment, you’re probably in full holiday party mode. You’ve got the outfits together (hopefully) but could use a few beauty tips to complete your look. Hair, makeup and let’s never forget that manicure.
This season, a well put together look includes a standout mani. It’s all about bold shades and textures, and that’s why I love SinfulColors new Crystal Crushes collection. These gem-inspired nail polishes come in eight vibrant shades. With a 3D texture and pearlized finish, this is the perfect way to add some glam to your office party attire or compliment your hot night-out ensemble.
My favorites from the collection are Emerald Envy and Ruby Mine. It was easy to apply with just two coats and dries really fast! The most wonderful thing about SinfulColors collection is that you don’t have to fork out $20 (the cost of a mani) for a nail polish. It’s available exclusively at Walgreens stores for only $2.99 each.
