So you guys already know I have an unhealthy obsession with nail polish.

To be honest I don’t think its the polish itself…okay it is. Yet there is also the underlying fact that shiny nails can represent so much more.

Nothing like looking down at shiny nails, and realizing that whether you took out the time to go to the salon or did them yourself, you actually took out a few minutes for yourself.

Something as small as a new nail color can do wonders. I thought I would set up a weekly link up to encourage everyone to just take a little time out during the week to do something for you.

So if you keep a fresh manicure, make sure to come and link up on Mondays and show off your digits and find some new bloggy friends.

I’ll go first. I hope to have a badge by next week. In the meantime just link back to this post

In honor of Halloween, last week I went with orange and black nails. I took my inspiration from Pinterest.

I used Revlon brand in Siren and a black nail art pen that I got from Dollar Tree

Here is my final result..I know it looks a little shaky but I was alright with how it turned out. I did the “sandwhich” method and it lasted for an entire week.

The linky will be open for the entire week!

  1. Don’t you just love Pinterest? The nails are cute. I’ve been visiting the Dollar Tree and Dollar General in addition to scoping out nail polish sales at CVS to build my collection back up. Now all I have to do is rekick my nail biting habit.

    1. I bite my nails too. I have been trying to be good so that is why I keep them polishes. However if one snags and I end up biting it, its like an addiction I have to go and bite off all the rest of them!

    1. That is the only way I don’t bite is to paint them. My habit is awful. If I bite one then I have to bite them all!! So I try to refrain.
