I’ve been curious about Cuccio gel polishes and finally bit the bullet and bought two shades from the new Cafe Cuccio collection. This is Cuccio’s 2014Fall/Winter collection consisting of eight coffee-inspired shades. Each of the Cuccio gel colors also comes with a matching nail lacquer. I also purchased the Cuccio gel base and top coats(...)
If you read my blog regularly, you probably know that I’m crazy about using NailMates for gel polish removal! You can read my full review here. NailMates are great for any type of nail soak-off that you have to do, whether it’s gel polish, glitter polish or a nail treatment. And they can be used(...)
I did some blood splatter nails two years ago for Halloween, and had to try it again using gel polish. This time I spiced it up a little with some “Crime Scene” tape and a fingerprint stamp. I used three colors from Revel Nail to create this look… Honor (white), Festival (red) and Harvest (yellow). (...)

Hi Everyone! I now have the Pink Gellac gel base & top coats in stock at the Chickettes Boutique!

Today I’m wearing some sparkly chevrons that were created with three of the Pink Gellac by Chickettes colors. I’m totally loving the Pink Gellac Fabulous Silver gel polish. You can do so many cool things with the silver and gold glitters, including accent nails and nail art. I started with two coats of Fabulous Silver(...)

I’m trying to work through some of my untried polishes that are appropriate for the season. Today I have swatches of two ibd Just Gel polish colors.

I have some fun nail art to share with you today. These purple turquoise nails were inspired by Nails by Miriam Elizabeth (follow her on Facebook & Instagram). She does some amazing art with gel polish, and I fell in love with her turquoise nail designs. When I saw this design I asked if she(...)
I’ve been wanting to do a pearl & gold combination and this design just kind of happened when I sat down at my nail table the other day. I thought I might try glitter moons, but I wanted something a little more edgy and geometric and ended up with this. I did this design freehand(...)
LeChat Perfect Match Ready for My Closeup is a gorgeous glittery, shimmery, deep blue-ish purple. I didn't think my camera would be able to capture all of the glittery goodness of this polish, but it did a pretty decent job. I'm just drooling over this polish... seriously. It catches the light and just sparkles all over the place.

They can be worn on their own or applied over any gel polish color to add a fun effect! The silver and gold finishes are perfect(...)

If you’re not familiar with Gloss48, they offer amazing independent beauty brands that aren’t available at Sephora or the department stores. They carefully curate (and try!) all of the products offered on their site. For the first seven days(...)
Hi everyone! I get a lot of emails and messages requesting recommendations for things like gel polish colors, lamps, starter kits, nail art tools and the like. Since the holiday shopping season is just around the corner, I thought I’d write a few posts to highlight some of my favorite things to help with the(...)
Part 2 of my Holiday Gift Ideas series is about gel polish starter kits. If you’re thinking about getting into gel polish or know someone else who is, this may help narrow down the options. Most of the kits that I’m writing about today are meant for the at-home DIY user. I’m going to list(...)
I hope you have been finding my holiday gift ideas series useful. Today I’m going to share my recommendations for LED and UV nail lamps. I personally prefer using an LED lamp for the faster curing times, but there are reasons why you may want or need a UV lamp. Differences between LED & UV(...)
