Yikes! It has been a long time since my last post, but life has been absolutely crazy these past few months. I remain hopeful that I will be back on a semi-regular schedule soon. For now though, let’s talk about Broadway Nails and their new imPRESS press on manicures. I have never used press on nails before in my life as I’ve always been a little intimidated by them and didn’t believe that they would live up to my full expectations, so this was a new experience to me. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have tried the Broadway imPRESS manicures either if Influenster didn’t send me a few to try.
I know it’s not Mani Monday (I seem to have missed that by a couple of days) but I did want to share with y’all my feelings on the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure (CSM) nail polish that Influenster sent me to try as part of the Sally Hansen voxbox.* Of course, since this is a review post/Mani Wednesday post, I don’t feel right without having a song of the week attached to it. The theme of the voxbox is “Complete Salon Manicure Total Knockout” aka #CSMTKO so I’ve gone with a boxing theme video… also a classic from my school dance days: 98º – The Hardest Thing.
It’s that time again and as promised I have the other NARSxPierre Hardy nail polish duo up for y’all. Last time we were walking, but this week we’re running with ‘Ethno Run’. I picked ‘Ethno Run’ up from Sephora and it is available online at Sephora or NARS. As for the Manic(ure) Monday song of the week – I’ve decided on some Beyonce because in my mind, it just works for these colours (let me know if something else pops into your mind)?
Hello June (and Monday)! This past week, I picked up my favorite nail polish of the moment from Sephora and I cannot stop raving about how much I love this. So on this wonderful Monday, I present to you the limited edition NARS x Pierre Hardy nail polish duo in ‘Easy Walking’. There are 6 different duos and while I want them all, I am being frugal and have only purchased 2 (second set coming up on our next Mani Monday). I decided to start with ‘Easy Walking’ because it is NOT available on the Sephora online site so if you’re interested, you may have to sprint to your local Sephora store to find it or order it off the NARS site. I struggled with this week’s song, but I finally decided to go with ‘Walking on Sunshine’ to celebrate my joy over this awesome nail polish and my hope for a lovely June where I can spend my days walking on sunshine.
Happy Monday or if you’re in Canada – Happy Victoria Day! It has been an absolutely gorgeous long weekend in Edmonton filled with nothing but sunshine. I wish I owned the Victoriana polish from Butter London as it would have been very appropriate for this week’s Mani Monday. However, I have a polish named after another queen; this polish was created to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee last year and which other royal has had a Diamond Jubilee? It was none other than Queen Victoria – maybe I’m forcing the theme a little bit but at least I tried. Butter London’s Lillibet’s Jubilee was created last year as a limited edition colour but it is still available for purchase. In honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, there was an epic rock concert held last year and my musical song styling of the week is a clip from that concert featuring Elton John singing the very classic ‘Your Song’
