I'm 21. I'm a part-time cosmetology student, I also work full-time. I'm pretty lazy, and don't lift my fingers to do many things in my free time, except to decorate their tips =]

This blog is to document my progress, as I continue to try new things with my nails as much as possible.

I am in no way affiliated with the brands of products that I review on here, I just really love shopping.

Questions? I'm also on facebook

I'm expecting!

Hello everyone!  I know that I've posted about my new computer, and that I'd be on here more often, but it's super crazy how life happens you know?  So basically not only did I get a computer and washer/dryer set for my birthday, but I also got pregnant! Woo!  My boyfriend and I are just elated=] I'm currently about five weeks and a day according to the internet, using the first day of my last period in one of those calculating things...Apparently you're pregnant like two weeks before you get pregnant lol

This does not mean that I will not be blogging, but for now my posts may still be a little sporadic.  Who knows?  What I do know is that since I found out Wednesday morning that I'm going to be a mother, (oh wow, is that weird to type lol) I have been completely concerned with every little thing I put in/on my body and my environment, so if you can't guess what this means; only 3 free polishes, and manis/pedis will be done outdoors!
Anyone know of a good base coat that's 3free? I keep using my Ulta nail hardening one because it works so well, but I can't find anything on it stating it isn't.

This is also a big reason why I'm continuing (and extending most likely) my no-buy.  If I do buy any polishes while I'm pregnant/breastfeeding, they will definitely be 3 free, so bring on the OPI and Zoya!  I know Revlon says 3free, but I also know that not all brands stating they are 3free actually are...I guess the price tag makes me think hmm...what if it's not true?  For some reason I just trust Zoya and OPI more lol

I am also considering doing mommy posts, I will of course be keeping everyone up to date on stuff going on with my pregnancy, but if I have to create a whole 'nother blog just to write about pregnancy then I'll have to think of a new name for it and honestly, I'm out of ideas when it comes to names right now.

My mom's convinced I'm having a girl, and I was on a website earlier that had you plug in your age and the month you conceived on some ancient chinese baby gender calendar, and that thing says it'll be a girl.

However, my boyfriend's family is notorious for only producing boys.

I myself am just waiting for that moment of "I know for sure that it's gonna be a..."

For now I'm logging a journal on my own of what I'm feeling and what's happening to my body.

Also I think I forgot to post this mani lol
This is my nude tape mani (inspired by nailside of course!) using scotch tape, then China Glaze Under the Boardwalk, and then I free handed Splish Splash because I was tired and didn't feel like waiting to put tape down.

I should've waited.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Oooooh congratulations!!! :) I'm very happy for you!


  2. Congrats!!! Seche base and top are the only ones I know that still have toulene in it. Most everything else is big 3 free. I was using China Glaze's base for the longest time, then switched to Orly's bonder. I really like bonder because it's sticky but it is really thin. Since bonder is thin, it is great for doing a nail treatments underneath, like a calicum hardener or a protein treatment. Both Orly and ChG are big 3 free.

    1. That makes me feel so much better! I was trying to read the ingredients on my Ulta base and I was like Oh they could still be preying on the fact that I'm not a freaking chemist!

      I'm hoping it's 3free, but if I get the chance I'll pick those up probably. thanks!

  3. Congratulations!! How exciting :)
