Summer Mani Pedi Combos for August

It’s mani Monday and I have bare nails. And I’ve had bare nails for like 2 weeks or so! I’m ready to feel human again and lacquer these puppies up but what color should I choose!? I’ve picked up a few new shades in addition to put tother a few of-the-moment, perfect-for summer-in-August, mani/pedi combos:

Nuditude and Teal Me About It

Nuditude and Teal Me About It

I just picked up Teal Me About It and I’m dying to use it.  I saw Essie make this pairing with similar shades and I’ve been thinking about it ever since!

Parfait Pink and Creme Brûlée

Parfait Pink and Creme Brûlée

A bright pink is my go to for summer, it always wears well and paired with an on-trend white shade on the toes its a no-fail pairing.  (see Creme Brûlée on here)

Sterling and Roses are Red

A collab that will look great through Labor Day!

Sapphired Up and Orange You Crazy

Sapphired Up and Orange You Crazy

This pairing has those Nautical vibes I’ll be loving come Labor Day for Week O’Nautical.  Sapphired up is also one of my all time favorites (see here).

Terracotta and Limoncello

This duo will look stunning with all the leopard and animal print that’s SO IN right now.  Don’t be scared of that Terracotta shade, its actually really wearable and pretty, not blah and brown.

 

As you can tell these pairing are all in my favorite formula, the Avon Gel Finish Nail Enamel.  It is hands down my favorite formula and paired with the Gel Finish Top Coat it literally looks as good as a classic gel mani, and lasts really long.  Right now you can get any 2 polishes/top coat for 2 for $11.  An even better deal, you can get the Gel Finish Top Coat with select shades for only $10!  Shop Gel Finish polish and the deals online here.  Now the bigger question is what color should I pick to do my mani/pedi!?!  Leave a comment on your pick for me 🙂

Spring Break Nails – Essie Absolutely Shore and A Crewed Interest

When we decided to go to Monterey for spring break I knew I wanted a fun nail in coastal shades.  Looking through my colors last spring’s favorite Essie’s A Crewed Interest stood out and since I’ve been obsessing over mint for the last year with a heavy emphasis these last few months I decided to freehand a fun chevron tip in Essie’s Absolutely Shore.

Pretty sure there’s not a better backdrop to do a mani pic then a bed of sea shells.  Of course my obsession ring came along too, the In A Flash Ring ($16) from my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Essie’s Absolutely Shore is the perfect spring coastal beach shade, and I’m “absolutely sure” about that.  So sure, I did my toes in it!  Even though our spring break was only a day trip it was well worth it to feel the sand on my toes, a feeling that NEVER gets old!
