I received this set of Cricket 1/4 Inch Cuticle Nippers to review. Until I went to nail school, I hadn’t really used nippers before and it was something I had to practice to get comfortable with. I’ve been asked for recommendations on nippers a few times so I thought it would be nice to try(...)

I was inspired to create a patriotic nail art design for the Fourth of July. This design was mostly done freehand and I love how it turned out! I started out with two Pink Gellac colors – Lipstick Red and Cobalt Blue. I painted a swoop of blue onto my nails and then filled the(...)
I officially graduated from nail school last week! Woo hoo! The picture above is the class photo that we took a week before graduation. I love these ladies and really enjoyed the camaraderie with like-minded people. We all brought something different to the table and shared our knowledge and expertise with one another. I think(...)
My recent nail school update left out the most exciting news I’ve received in a while… I was selected as one of the winners of the BCL | CND | Tippi Hedren Nail Scholarship! It’s a huge honor and I’m so thrilled to have been selected! You can see and read the full announcement here(...)
Happy Wednesday! I’m trying to work through some more un-swatched polishes from my stash. I have a small collection of Kiara Sky polishes and today I have a few pinks and corals to show you. I applied three coats of polish for each of these swatches for optimal coverage. Kiara Sky is a two-step gel(...)
When this post publishes, I will be in the air on my way to Las Vegas for the Cosmoprof North America trade show!! I’m going to get the scoop on all of the new and upcoming products, collections, and trends while I’m there and will be posting updates through my social media outlets over the(...)
MelodySusie has a new 48 watt LED nail lamp that I’ve been testing out for a couple of weeks. It’s their most powerful lamp yet, and has some really nice features. I conducted a full video review that you can watch below. I demonstrated how it works and touched on the most important features. Here(...)
Bundle Monster (BMC) has a new collection of Speed Gels called Ain’t No Basic B!tch. Speed gels are one-step gel polishes that don’t require a base or top coat, and have no tacky layer. The BMC Speed Gels require a 1 minute LED cure, or a 2 minute UV cure. I haven’t conducted a wear(...)
I have a few more Kiara Sky gel polish swatches for you today! Kiara Sky is a two-step gel polish that can be applied without a base coat, though I prefer using one. Each gel polish also has a matching regular polish color that can be purchased separately. That’s nice sometimes if you like to(...)
I don’t often write about nail lacquer (non-gel polish), but I received a new product from Morgan Taylor that intrigued me and wanted to share it with you! Morgan Taylor launched a new Chrome Collection that includes a silver chrome base coat and six bright color washes. Application is a simple two-step process in which(...)
I’m finally back from my trip to Vegas for the Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) trade show! I extended my trip to visit with family and friends on the West Coast after the show and we did some fun things like kayaking and a day trip to the Grand Canyon. It was a great time, but(...)
This is the second post detailing the new gel polish collections & products that I learned of while attending CPNA this year! If you haven’t already, check out yesterday’s post for the first half of my report! SuperNail ProGel has several new collections coming out as well. The ProGel Summer collection is called Tropical Pop,(...)
I picked up the Neon Daze collection from TruGel earlier this summer. As the name of the collection suggests, it consists of six bright, vibrant neon shades. You may want to break out your sunglasses for these swatches! This is also the first peek at my new nail shape! I was getting bored with my(...)
My last two CPNA posts focused on all of the new happenings in the gel polish world, but I managed to also get a few tidbits of information about some new releases in the world of lacquer too! The term that I probably heard the most while touring the showroom floor this year was “gel-like”. (...)
Pink Gellac released a new collection of nudes called Uncovered1. This collection consists of 5 gorgeous neutral shades that are perfect for any occasion, or for the office. I love the soft subtleness of these shades. All five colors are now available for sale at Chickettes Boutique! Worldwide shipping...
By now many of you have probably heard of Caption Nail Polish from Young Nails. Caption is formulated with LacQ3 technology, which provides an “air cured, gel-like manicure”. LacQ3 combines a triple layer fusion of dual polymer technology, volcanic glass, shellac and plant-derived plasticizers that all work together to...
When I heard that OPI released a new LED lamp that was smaller and more affordable, I had to buy it and try it out. I’ve been using the new Studio LED Lamp for a little while now and am very impressed with it. I put together a video...
Who wants to see swatches of the new Urban Cowgirl Collection from Gelish?! This new Fall collection contains colors that are rugged with a feminine touch. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there are actually 8 shades in this collection because the swatch wheel that I saw at...
I posted swatches of the new Gelish Urban Cowgirl Collection a few days ago, and many of you are wondering how the colors compare to existing colors. Many of the colors in this collection are original and unique, but a few have some similar shades. I also conducted a...
