Mani Monday – June

Mani Monday:  June

Mani Monday: June

How are we already 11 days through June!?!  June is one of the best summer months here in Nor Cal because its not mega hot yet, and everyone is excited and not complaining about it being super hot.  I personally love it being super mega hot but I know I’m in the minority.  You know what else is super mega hot?  These Jamberry June Style Box nail wraps.

I’m digging the blue and white design which will work really well into red white and blue for Week O’Nautical leading into the 4th.  I’m definitley trying to use more of my Jamberry Nail Wraps because I have so many pretty designs.

Another thing that is super mega hot, is this sterling silver ring with simulated opal from Avon’s fine jewelry collection.  I seriously have been mega super obsessed with the fine jewelry options.  I got a few pieces that I showcased here already (see more here and my gold piece here).  There are a few more pieces on the want list to mix and match and stack.  The Avon sterling silver opal collection launches Wednesday at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger You can shop Jamberry nail wraps here.

Nailed It: Jamberry Night Sky

20180302_172151.jpg

Mani Monday and I finally feel human again. I had bare nails for weeks, so finally getting a pedi and busting out a Jamberry wrap on the mani, all is right in the world once again!

I felt like doing nail wraps and these Night Sky wraps were calling my name! Sparkly mixed mani in cool icy tones, sign me up!

We have been having a cold spell in Nor Cal so these icy tones are oh so needed. And so is this scarf that’s my back drop. Its actually the signature print from the mark. Rebel Ice collection. Fun fact: If you bought the bath and body line its the print on the packaging!

I also just got these sterling silver rings in from Avon, and thought the complimented the wraps so well! Yes, Avon does have a line of fine jewelry, yes these rings are new and available, yes they include genuine stones, and yes you need them! The fine jewelry also starts at a size 5! I am wearing the Classic Peak Band (sale price $16.99) stacked with the Blue Topaz with Cluster Halo ring (sale price $34.99).

You can shop my rings and check out Avon’s fine jewelry new arrivals at my eBoutique. Message me if your interested in Jamberry nail wraps! I’m always looking for someone to go halfsies 😉

Cheers to 2018!

I wore two holo polishes this New Years, a silver one from Zoya and a black one from Julep.  For a little confetti I added an Essie Luxe Effect topcoat on my middle and added some nail gems on my ring.  Quick, easy and festive!

Only 6 days until Christmas, and another festive mani Monday down!  I’m feeling the festive spirit with finding a way to bring a little red, green and glam to my everyday.  Today’s festive is a buffalo plaid mixed mani, feather necklace and a classic red lip!

For my buffalo plaid mixed mani I started with Friday Flannel nail wrap from Jamberry on my ring.  I then used Julep polishes to do my black and gold nails.  Once it dried I drew the line down the side of my ring and middle with that same gold and then cleaned up around the nail.  This really matched a lot of my festive red and green outfits I’ve been wearing lately, like this feather and red lip look!

The mark. So Fly Necklace with its black feather, hematite metal and gemstone details is a really fun piece for the holidays.  I paired mine over this off the shoulder sweater (WHBM) and a black and white wool plaid skirt (Nordstroms).

Festive and Fun

If your NYE is a little more casual and cold weather this fun necklace might be the piece you need to fun up your look.  Pair it with my favorite red lip, mark. All Butter Up in Fired Up and you are good to go!  You can shop the mark. So Fly Necklace at my eBoutique.  Now what to do for the ultimate festive mani Monday, Christmas Day!  What are you planning on wearing?

Mani Monday’s Gone Fishing

Mani Monday Has Gone Fishing

Mani Monday Has Gone Fishing

Random Fact for the day:  “Gone fishing” is a phrase commonly used when someone is completely unaware of his or her surroundings, checked out from reality, someone who has taken the opportunity to get away from the rigors of the day to day.  Commonly placed in shop windows to indicate that they weren’t around to do business.  This Monday, I definitely feel this way.  So my Koi fish mani is totally fitting.

Jamberry Koi Legend

Jamberry Koi Legend

This is another Jamberry wrap from my style box subscription.  The style box offerings are limited edition but there are plenty willing to trade half and full sheets (including myself).  I decided to pull this guy out because I had a baby boy shower to go to and I wanted something blue and boyish.  Luckily to my surprise, her theme for the party was fishing 🙂

Adorable Koi Fish Design

Adorable Koi Fish Design

The fun koi fish design not only was fitting for the event, it’s also super cute!  Plus, my in-laws have a pretty legit koi pond, complete with a little bridge my dog Zoey gets freaked out crossing.  She stops, looks at the fish, makes sure they aren’t going to get her, then crosses.  Its the funniest thing.

Smile, You’re Gorgeous!  It may be a Monday, but if anything can bring me a smile on a Monday, it’s a good mani.  Now that spring is here, I’m loving a great creme finish mani in a simple spring shade.  Avon Gel Finish in Moondust is that perfect early spring shade.

Moodust is a light grey but it has enough white in it to almost be considered a pastel.  Regardless, it will match your all your spring pastels shades.  I’ve commented before how much I LOVE this Gel Finish formula.  It’s so spot on glossy, goes on smooth and self levels like a champ!  Finish it with the Avon Gel Finish Top Coat!  You know what else goes great with a mani?  A new statement ring, like this ring set from mark. the Quite A Pair Ring Set is only $22 for the pair!

Mani Monday Inspo: Golden Globes Edition

I actually caught the Golden Globes last night and not just the red carpet recap the next day. It was super entertaining with Jimmy Falon hosting and of course even more entertaining with all the fun fashion! Such a glam evening is transferring to my not-so-glam Monday by inspiring my mani.  It’s time to take off my NYE jam’s (see here) but what to replace it with?

OPI Washington DC Collection by Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington for O.P.I.

Just in time for all the holiday sets to come out, this Mani Monday is all about the fall release from OPI, the Washington DC Collection by Kerry Washington.  I got this from a pal on my birthday back in August and has been my go to colors this fall.  Good thing is, they work for winter too especially with the perfect must-have colors in the mini set.

You can shop OPI at tons of retailers, Ulta or Amazon are usually my go-to for these mini sets.  Nail polish is always a good idea!
