Mani Monday #2

Last week I failed to post Mani Monday because my camera has been acting up on me. Since it's still not connecting to my computer, I decided to post some of my favorite polish trends this week. I looked to Pinterest to find these following manicures. Click on the images for the how-to's.

Hope the pics inspire you to get creative with those fingers! BTW if you are on Pinterest please follow me.

2012 Oscars Best Dressed

Like many other fashion bloggers, I look forward to award shows not so much because of the awards being handed out that night but for the fashion A-list celebs dress in. I enjoy seeing actors put on a costume of sorts and the glam of it all. Last night were the 2012 Oscar's and I was not disappointed with what the celebs decided on wearing. Below are my favorite looks from the night.

Mani Monday #1

I'm starting a weekly meme titled 'Mani Monday'. Since one of my favorite accessories is a pretty manicure, I will post tutorials and pics every Monday! You guys can also post them and leave a link in the comments so that I can check out your pretty polish.
Since tomorrow is Valentine's day I decided to post a Valentine's themed mani. Instead of going with the obvious red colored polish, I choose a pretty pink glittered one and a creme colored one on my ring finger. Seal it with a top coat for a longer lasting color. It's a more girly and flirty choice!
Polish colors: New York Color in 212B Mulberry Street, Wet n' Wild in 435G Sparked
I hope you guys try this manicure out whether you spend it with your love or at home this Valentine's Day! Have a great day!
