These are the nails I wore to the county fair this past summer. This Incoco design is called Made In America.
I never get tired of Incoco nail appliques. They always look awesome! Also, I love how the largest nail strip in each pack fits my big toe perfectly, so when I do an Incoco manicure I can do a semi-pedi to match….
What do I mean by a semi-pedi? Well, Incoco gives you 8 different sizes of strips so I always have 3 sizes leftover. I put a few of them on my toes and then paint my other toes with a complementary nail polish for a cute mix-n-match pedi that coordinates with my mani. You get more for your buck that way! ‘Murica!
Yup, I know…I haven’t posted in a bit. But I’m here and I’m still kickin! Reason is, I got a little burnt out from our big July nail challenge! But I’m still painting my nails and I want to show you a color I was wearing last week. It’s OPI Just Lanai-ing Around from the Hawaii collection. When I got the collection I wasn’t really feeling this color at all. The dusty pink shade just didn’t seem summery enough for me! But now that it’s cooling off I pulled this shade out because I think it has a more autumnal feel. Don’t you agree?
Just Lanai-ing Around is a dusty rose shade with a little hint of shimmer. But most of the shimmer got lost on the nail. The formula of this one was a little weird. It was more runny than I expected. Yet, for a runny polish it was surprisingly opaque. It was virtually a one-coater. But it did flood my cuticles a bit as you can see in my pics.
What do you think of this OPI? Boring? Or purty? I thought it was boring until I got it on my nails and then I kinda loved it!
I love novelty nail polishes! So when the bookstore (I work at a University) had a 40% off sale I snatched up two Ruby Wing polishes which change color in the sun. I grabbed a purple for my mom and a pink for me. My mom LURVED the purple one, and I was impressed with my pink too! Mine’s called Sweet Rose . Let’s see what it looks like!
It needed three coats to get good coverage which made it seem a lil goopy. But a nice coat of seche vite smoothed it all out. Sweet Rose changed really well from light pink to magenta in the UV sun rays. I was impressed. I have a couple rubys that are duds. But this one was nice!
Do you own any of these? They’re fun, especially in summer when ya spend alot of time outside. Ciao my bellas!
I don’t know about you, but I’m a little sad that summer is almost over. Good thing I have one last summery (and fruity) nail design to show you before our September heat wave disappears!

Long time no blog, right? I got a little burnt out and needed a break! In my two week hiatus I went with bare nails, creme nail polishes, and some incoco nail strips. No nail art. I was keeping it effort-free. But the incocos I’ve been wearing were hellacute so I just had to share these pics from a week ago!
I don’t wear french manis often enough. And my favorite kinds are funky frenchies. Like dis-
I went for a yellow and blue polka dotted frenchie this time!
