Color Changing Gel Polish

Hello friends - 
As you may have noticed I haven't posted for awhile. I returned to work full time after having baby Max and life has been hectic! But, I'm going to start posting again a few times a week. It's a great way for me to de-stress since I truly love blogging. I may start talking more about motherhood or do more posts around kids, so I hope you still enjoy them! Don't worry, I'll still mainly be blogging beauty.

Speaking of beauty...I'm totally obsessed with mood color changing gel nail polish. Have you heard of this? This is my 3rd manicure with LeChat Perfect Match Mood gel polish. The first two manicures lasted so well I couldn't resist a third. Plus, it's so much fun to watch the shades change!

The color changes based on body temperature. When my hands were warm, 70% of the time, the polish was a light pink, slightly sheer. When my hands were cold (after washing them or even sitting in an air conditioned room), the color got darker. When the color would change between the two it would take on an ombre effect. It was worried about it looking unprofessional for work meetings, but very rarely would I have all different colors on one hand. 

This shade is LeChat Perfect Match Mood in Angel's Breeze. It's definitely a conversation piece! 





OPI Sheer Tint in Be Magentale with Me

OPI Sheer Tint in Be Magentale with MeI'm always keeping my eyes open for pretty, light nail polish shades for every day wear for work. I spotted the new OPI Sheer Tints Top Coats and had to buy the pinkish-red Be Magentale with Me shade. In the bottle, it reminded me so much of a fun nail polish I had when I was younger.

I LOVE this polish as a quick go-to polish that will go with every outfit. I've seen other bloggers put 3-4 coats on it to make it more opaque, but I like the sheer look with my white tips coming through (this is right after I had my son, and the prenatal vitamins were still working overtime...such long nails!). Pictured is just two coats over my natural nail. It's such a elegant, clean look. I use this polish all the time! 

You can find this Sheer Tint on Amazon for $7.25. What do you think? Do you like the look of this sheer polish? Or would you be more likely to wear it over a color coat?

Sinful Colors 'Pretty In Pink' Collection


Pink or red? Your only options for Valentine's Day colors :)

Check out Sinful Colors 'Pretty in Pink' Collection. Beautiful shades of pinks...and majorly affordable! You can find Sinful Colors nail polish in drugstores (in and outside of the US), and at the affordable price of $1.99! I'm wearing Soul Mate in my pictures, with a base coat, 2 color coats, and fast drying top coat. The nail polish went on really smooth. This color specifically would look awesome with a tan (fake tan, that is!).Here is a breakdown of the colors in the collection:
Pink Forever - Bazooka meets Bam-Bam to equal beautiful
Beautiful Girl - Classic ballerina with a flirty finish
Glass Pink - Sheer, shiny, shimmer-happy bliss
Boom Boom - Magenta-infused pink, which pops on toes and tips alike
Scandal - No-nonsense neon, slick and sensational
Soul Mate (pictured) - Muted peachy pink with a melon twist

On a separate note, check out this awesome ring I got from Forever 21. It's a double ring, so it fits around my ring finger and middle finger. I get so many compliments on a $6 ring!
