Blue to Purple Gradient Nails

Hey Lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! For today's look I started out with one coat of Julep's Shelly. I then went in and sponged Julep's Shelly and Flora to get a beautiful blue and purple gradient. To top this look off I went in with Sinful Colors Black on Black and stamped Bundle Monster plate BM-618.


I am loving this color combo and gradients are for sure my jam right now! What is your favorite gradient color combo?

Julep Maven's Flora

Hey Lovelies!!! Just a super quick post today to show you all Flora by Julep. I am loving this bright purple polish with blue shimmer. This is my first Julep polish and I was very impressed with how even and opaque it came out. This was two coats and they dried within three minuets.   


Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Jamberry's Something Blue (Matte) Nail Wraps

Hey Lovelies! In this post I am rocking Jamberry's Something Blue (Matte) which is from their New & Notable collection. I absolutely  love that this wrap comes in a matte or glossy finish! I found that the matte finish wraps heat up much faster then the glossy finish and they adhered to my nail extremely well. Need something blue for your wedding day? Then these are the wraps for you!

Boy Scout Nail Art


Hey Lovelies! For today's look I decided to do some fun Boy Scout nails because my husband and his two older brothers are all Eagle Scouts and my mother-in-love is associated with the Boy Scouts of America! How awesome is that?!?! 

  For this look I started out with two coats of Essie's Brooch The Subject. Once that was dry I went in with Fresh Paint's Spruce Street and stamped the fleur de lis image on The Born Pretty Store plate BP-36.

Purple and Blue Radial Gradient

Hey Lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend like me! I became an Aunt on Friday to the most perfect 8lb 13oz baby boy!! I can't wait to spoil him rotten! Today on the blog I have a beautiful radial gradient! My first one ever I might add :) I was so in love with the blue and purple combination that I did with my neon rainbow gradient nails the other day that I just had to use them in their own mani.   


For this look I used China Glaze's Towel Boy Toy and Sinful Colors Let's Talk. Just like a normal gradient I used a makeup sponge to create this look. Once my nails were dry I went in with Sinful Colors Black on Black and stamped Bundle Monster plate BM-618. I hope you all enjoyed this look!

Knocked Up Nails Review

Hey Lovelies! I hope everyone is having an awesome Wednesday! Today I am bringing you a review of three beautiful polishes from a company called Knocked Up Nails.

Preggers in Pink is a bubble gum pink creme polish.

Born Pretty Store's Nail Stamping Plate BP-01 Review

Hey Lovelies! In honor of it being so freaking darn cold up here in Ohio I thought it would be the perfect time to showcase the Born Pretty Store plate BP-01. This Christmas plate features Santa, snowflakes, reindeer, Christmas trees and more! 


Let's jump right into this winter look! I started out with two coats of Essie's Soul Mate as my base color. I then went in with my white polish and stamped the snowflake, trees and reindeer images. I wanted to make this nail design look like a picture so I went in with my small dotting tool and created a snowy ground for the reindeer's and the trees.


I definitely suggest stopping over and checking out their nail art section and see all the great nail goodies that they offer and don't forget to use the coupon code JFL91 for 10% off!
