Celebrating Zoey in an American Style Kinda Way

Celebrating Zoey in an American Style Kinda Way

A sidenote this is the anniversary weekend of rescuing Zoey and her sister Chloe. ¬†Even though we rescued them, in reality they rescued us. ¬†Nothing is better than this little goof troop running over to me with her crooked run when I get home everyday to shower me with hugs, yes she hugs. ¬†There are so many wonderful pets who need a home so if you’re looking for a new member to add to your family check your local shelters and fosters. ¬†We found her on petfinder.com and could not be happier!

Nail Trend: Mixed Media Nails

Alicia 10 years ago, heck! ¬†even 5 years ago would NEVER wear different nail colors on different nails! ¬†Jigga what!!! ¬†Def would of considered it tacky and gaudy…esp on my long nails. ¬†Let alone multiple colors, patterns, textures, etc… ¬†Let’s just say times, they are a changing because this girl now feels boring with a regular old mani. ¬†I’ve been rocking the accent nail pretty heavily for the past year now and since my nail-spiration pinterest I’ve been inspired to create mani-pieces (mani + masterpieces). ¬†And I have to say, these are way more fun!

For the mixed media nail trend you coordinate mixing color, texture and prints.  Basically, the options are endless!  Play around with which fingers get which color/texture/print but the one rule is more than one nail has to be different.  (if its only one nail, then its an accent nail!)

Mixed Media Nails... Coral, Graphite Glitter and Houndstooth

Mixed Media Nails… Coral, Graphite Glitter and Houndstooth

This was my first attempt, and let me say, at first I didn’t like it. ¬†I thought I looked weird, like I forgot to take off some old polish or was testing out new polish on only a few fingers… ¬†However after a few days I loved it! ¬†So fun, and everytime I looked down at my hands I smiled. ¬†And really, that’s the real reason I paint my nails, because it makes me happy!

For this mixed media mani I used Essie Camera from their Spring 2012 collection on my thumb, pointer and pinky. ¬†For the graphite opaque glitter I used a favorite from China Glaze’s holiday 2011 collection Tinsel Town. ¬†(warning: ¬†as beautiful as it is, this shade chips off like a mo fo). ¬†Finally for my favorite nail, the houndstooth nail! ¬†I used a black base of Maybelline Onyx Rush stamped with konad plate M63 and white Konad polish, all finished off with Essie’s Good To Go Topcoat. ¬†Of course that ring is mark. ¬†I love turquoise and coral together and this was no exception! ¬†You can get the Pretty Stellar ring for yourself at me e.boutique at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

My most recent attempt got compliments galore! ¬†I used my newest additions to my nail collection including my July Julep maven box. ¬†I decided to break down and get a 2nd box because July’s box included a FREE bottle of America and red white and blue glitter with silver stars. ¬†Ummm YES! ¬†Had to have that! ¬†So I got my bombshell selection including the free America glitter plus a pearly white and purple glitter. ¬†To learn more about getting your own Julep maven box click here!

Mixed Media Mani:  White, Purple, Glitter & Metallics!

Mixed Media Mani: White, Purple, Glitter & Metallics!

The other newest addition to my collection is the newly released Essie Summer Metallics in Nothing Else Metals a metallic lilac used on my pointer and middle! ¬†Which I love love love! ¬†I also picked up Penny Talk, a rose gold but that’s a later post :). ¬†For this mani I used Julep’s Kate on my thumb, ring and pinky with Julep’s Chelsea as a gradient on my ring. ¬†I really loved how this mani stood out but wasn’t loud. ¬†And look how chic it looks with black and white and my new favorite ring pairings! ¬†The chevron rings are a set of 3 currently at Target for $7.99 and that KILLER mega black cocktail ring is once again of course mark! ¬†The Black Facet Ring has been my go to lately with the old hollywood flare in the big black stone but keeping it modern with the shinny silver, plus its large and in charge but super wearable. ¬†Get it now for $16 at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

Are you daring enough to go out of the lines and rock a mixed media mani????

Happy Memorial Day with Nautical Nails

You got a sneak peek of my mani here and my pedi here so its no surprise what I’ve been sporting all week, but here’s a little more.

Nautical Nails

Nautical Nails

I wanted to do something different but I wasn’t very inspired. ¬†After some google images searches I still wasn’t too inspired. ¬†I knew I wanted to wear gold on my fingers and I knew alllacquredup.com¬†did a great nautical flag manicure with last year’s China Glaze Anchor’s Away collection, so I took that idea and ran with it for my toes.

I have on the bright orange from my Julep intro box, ¬†Natasha. ¬†I then tapped off my big toe and did a diagonal block or Essie’s Midnight Cami, a sparkling deep navy. ¬†I then used one of those Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen’s to do the line, which I can’t recall the shade right now but I have to say… eh. ¬†They just don’t work as great as I want them to. ¬†The flow isn’t even so I can never get the line to be how I want it, clean and precise. ¬†However, it works for now.

For my mani, I used that same deep navy, Essie Midnight Cami, ¬†as my accent nails. ¬†I usually only do my ring, but I wanted a little extra impact this time. ¬†The gold glitter on top is also from my Julep maven box, Oscar. ¬†I did it in a gradient approach and I just loved how this color combo glittered in the sun with the dark navy base and bright gold glitter. ¬†My regular gold polish used on the rest of my fingers is China Glaze High Tech. ¬†I love this shade, its not to warm or cool and super metallic! ¬†Check out how it looked with my arm party chillin’ at a weekend BBQ.

I’m of course wearing my Borrowed from The Boys Watch once again and my Cross Your Fingers Ring in gold both from mark. ¬†The white bracelets I randomly found in my jewelry box and I think they’re from H&M years and years ago, but was pretty pleased I found them to wear with this weekend’s nautical looks!
