Still kickin'!

I must apologize for the delay in posts, no worries though, I'm not disappearing. I have lots of posts lined up, but I'll be revamping, redesigning, and probably most importantly...rebranding and renaming the blog. So we'll be going through lots of changes, I'm trying to get everything done for that and finalized before making more posts here. It's just taking more time than anticipated (doesn't everything?) But I look forward to getting things moving around here soon! Stay tuned!

Nails of the Day: Spring Brights

Another Word of the Shay: Nails of the Day for you! My last NOTD was a fresh soft look with a pop. This time around I'm showcasing bright nails. Instead of one shade or an accent nail, I went for two shades alternating, of course you can do this in any pattern you'd like, (some refer to it as colour-blocking for your nails).

NOTD: Joe Fresh Spring Mani

(Joe Fresh Mint) 

Here's a new Nails Of The Day post for you!
I thought this was a great look using some fun Spring colours I just picked up.  I've been obsessed with mint lately, and it looks so lovely and delicate paired with creams and peaches, but I thought for a touch of whimsy, I'd throw in some dots in a tangerine orange, (which is a huge "It" shade this season).

DUPE ALERT: OPI Nicki Minaj Collection VS. Sinful Colors

Earlier this year, OPI launched a collaboration collection with Nicki Minaj, for Spring 2012. When I spotted it at my local Lawton's drugs, I was really interested in the three creams in the collection, which would have rung up at $29.97CAD before taxes. But before heading to the register I headed over to the Sinful Colors section and noticed that they were on sale 2 for $6, (regularly $3.99CAD each here, I know you lucky folks in the US can get these for as low as $1.99USD and even cheaper on sale). As you can guess by the title and the above photo, I walked away polishes, just not the ones I had expected.
