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

Summer Challenge, Pink and Purple!

Today I decided I would finally try a cocktail mani!  For those that don't know, this is where you paint your one hand all one color, and then the other that same color on two fingers, but the first three fingers have a different color.  You know, the fingers you hold your glass with!  The accent nails can be a bit spicier while the other nails a simple creme, or really whatever you want.  China Glaze held a contest not very long ago (time escapes me) and you can still find their idea page on google.

 I really needa start doing my nails during the light of day again..

I did this right after I got my Zoya trio in the mail, and I chose to keep it simple.  This week was a bad one for my nails, a couple started breaking on my right hand, and the next day I couldn't stand it any longer and now all my nails are short, with the nubbiest being on my right hand.  Zoya Kimber and Tru.  Both are opaque in two coats, with awesome shimmers that apparently cannot be captured in my tired haste..

Do you all like this "trend"?  I don't see a lot of people doing it so I don't really know if it's considered a trend or..what.. I feel really weird about my accent nails being on my right hand, since my left hand is the star of most of the photos on my blog (and with good reason..) so I think I'm gonna break the rules next time and do the cocktail part on my left.  What do y'all think?


  1. Hmmm... I haven't heard about the cocktail mani. Interesting... I would think you would want both hands to match. One time I went out with mismatch hands and my dinner mates were like "Why do you have a bunch of different colors on your hands?" I think you should break the rules.

    1. Hell yeah you should. It def felt weird though lol i felt off-balance.

  2. I haven't heard about this either, but I think its a cool idea - its different! Different is good! :)


    1. Of course it is! And i think this must not be very popular since I've only seen one other person post about it lol

  3. I've not seen this mani before, but I'll definitely be trying it out, thanks for introducing me to it!



Thank you for reading, I do appreciate your thoughts and opinions =]
