Nail Files with Shenae

Happy Friday! 

        I know, I know...it's been a few days since I've posted - a week to be exact :(  Do you ever go through slumps where you just don't feel motivated? That's me right now! What helps you through it?

       Today's mani features Shenae by Julep. It is described as a pastel mint green opalescent shimmer.  It was hard for me to capture the shimmer on my nails but you can see it in the bottle shot.  As to the formula, I found it a bit thick and borderline goopy, and therefore took longer to dry. If you have short nails you can get full opacity in 2 coats but it took me 3. 

      I do think the color is soft and pretty and goes great with gold accents as seen below. I used Glamorous from Fergie's Wet N Wild line and placed the hex glitter where I wanted it with the help of a toothpick. I draw like a twelve year old so hand painting a design is out the window for me. This is as easy as it is cute.   I love the way this turned out! 

Best investment of the week:

      I went to a community garage sale last weekend and scored some AMAZING deals. I even got a vaccum for $10. But by far my favorite purchase was the earrings below for $1!  Mint is hot this season and I  love that these earrings are simple but chic.  Whats even better is that the earrings perfectly coordinate with this manicure and my favorite ring! The stars have aligned :)

  3. Great score on the earrings! I haven't been to a garage sale in a long time. Maybe I'll go this weekend. :) I never thought about individually picking the hex glitters out of that Fergie polish! I love her polishes and have quite a few of hers. Maybe I will try that toothpick idea next time. The mint is also so pretty! I love mint polishes! <3
