NOPI | Do Good... Feel Good, Something About Spring
OPI | You Pink Too Much

Hey guys! Today I have a review of the Born Pretty Store's chevron nail art stickers. I always see nail artists and bloggers incorporate cute chevron patterns into their nail art manicures so effortlessly. To be honest, when I first received these, I did not know what I wanted to do with them. First time I tried them out, the nail polishes that I used were not cooperating and began to lift up when I peeled the sticker away. Second time around, I came up with this pretty design for Valentine's day.

Born Pretty Store Review - Flatback Metal Studs (Chanel Inspired)

Description of Photo

Hey guys! Today I have a review of the Born Pretty Store's flatback metal studs to share with you. Since I have no hopes of owning one at this point in my life (forever in debt because of university...) I took inspiration from the highly coveted Chanel classic quilted flap bag and recreated it on my nails. A girl can dream, right?

OPI Hawaii Spring/Summer 2015 - Swatches & Review

Description of Photo

It may seem a little far-fetched to be talking about sunshine and beaches when caught in the dead of winter. Every time I look outside I get a little more depressed and have to brace myself before I step foot outside -- I presume my fellow Canadian readers would agree.

As hard as it is to believe, spring is around the corner and once again OPI is on the ball with their upcoming SS15 collection. Today I have some very tropical shades from the Hawaii collection to share!

It's a Man's World

Of all the hundreds of posts that I aimlessly scroll past while perusing tumblr, a select few actually resonate with me. Whether it be an inspiring quote or a great graphic, it usually takes a lot for me to stop and read something. Upon surfing the other day, I came across a very valid question posed to a style blog that I follow. The reader asked how to rock menswear-esque outfits without losing femininity. I thought this was very applicable as I have been experimenting more and more with boxier cuts and loose-fits. The author's answer was such that one should not be afraid to style menswear inspired pieces so long as one accessorizes and puts a smidge more effort into their hair and makeup. For whatever reason, this simple and seemingly obvious answer was the primary inspiration behind this outfit.
