New At This

I still consider myself fairly new to this beauty community (both starting a blog and doing nail art) so I don't have that manicures I can post up. Most of my nail polish collection are also fairly old (and by that I mean, I'm not too updated on new collections since I am a broke college student :[ ) so swatching my nail polish collection might be hilarious since I would  be doing swatches of pretty old polishes.
More Reason Why I Don't Swatch:
  • My nails are naturally pretty weak and if I were to keep putting nail polish on and removing with nail polish remover, my nails would thin out to a paper like thickness and that would be no bueno. 
  • The smell of nail polish remover is absolutely horrific. I wish they made nail polish remover that didn't have such a strong scent, if anyone sees this and knows of one, PLEASE let me know.
  • Again, I don't have as many polishes as all these awesome gurus out there do, so people may just laugh at me....Although, I think getting addicted to nail polish is something I am slowly reaching. I have probably doubled my nail polish collection since the beginning of the summer. GAH, so much money!
I hope I can continue to post of pictures of nail art, not sure often I can upload since I don't change my nail colors everyday. I do have some pictures of manicures I have done in the past that I might just post up! So I guess here is one:

Not sure when exactly I did this manicure, I know it was sometime in August. I quite like this design. Very simple and elegant! :) The color I used in this is Ulta's Celebutante. I don't think this picture shows the true color. It is more purple than the blueish hue shown in this picture.

If anyone is reading any of these post, comment and make my day! :) Feedback/suggestions would be greatly appreciated on how to make my blog more awesome ;) haha Have a good one! <3


  1. Very pretty mani and I wouldn't have thought that you were just starting.

    Just have fun and post when you can. Keep your nails polish and it will give them strength :)

  2. aww thank you! you are so sweet! :)

  3. I wouldn't think that you were new to this, either. :) Even if you get your inspiration from other places, you still put your own spin on what you were inspired by to make something new and interesting!

    I have weak, thin nails as well, and I agree with RMCandlelight. Keeping your nails painted adds an extra layer of protection to your tips. :)

  4. I really like that design :D purple rocks! and so do daisies.

    Also, there are a few remover that dont stink quite so terribly. In the medium price range is Zoya's 3in1. It smells like... well its hard to describe. It reminds me of the pain cream my mom used to rub on her knees... haha

    for a cheaper one, I like sally hansens moisturizing remover. its like 2$ and makes your hands smell clean like soap afterwards.
    hope you find one that works for you! :D

  5. thanks you guys!!
    @samantha: ohh!! i will definitely look into those! thank you for your suggestions!! :D
