Floral Nail Art

Pin It Hmmm it's been awhile since I did some nail art from "the list"! Now that we're semi settled into our new apartment and my nail stuff is unpacked, I can finally get down to business!

If you're new to my blog (*waves*!) and aren't familiar with "the list", pretty much - in a previous giveaway I asked for nail art suggestions. Welp, those suggestions ended up forming "the list", where I am going top to bottom doing them all :]

Floral Nail Art

So here's the next "the list" mani suggestion, floral!

Summer Inspired Nail Art

Pin It Here's another one of your suggestions! AKA "the list" manicures.

I toyed around with a ton of ideas in my head. I Googled some manicures to get some ideas and this was what I came up with!

After seeing a bunch of gradients it REALLY made me want to do one haha.

Pictures and more after the break!

How to removed a stuck nail polish cap!

Pin It Someone asked me if this was on my blog! I posted it to Facebook but I decided to post here since not everyone likes my Facebook page and not everyone follows me on Blogspot!

I've done this for years and decided to share when my cap got stuck today. Just take a rubber band (this is a silly band lmao) and wrap it right around the cap so it won't slip. And then open the bottle! Wallah! Hasn't failed me yet!

Enjoy the little tip!

Zoya Remove + V.S. Cutex Advanced Revival

Pin It Today's post is a little different than you are used to from me. BUT It's still nail related :] However, I warn you that it is longer and more wordy than most of my posts! But worth it!

Cutex Advanced Revival (left) , Zoya Remove + (right)

I don't know if you guys have heard of, or received a sample of, the new Cutex Advanced Revival. I received a sample felt pad last month and I was pretty impressed with it so I decided to give a bottle a shot!

Now, why the comparison? BECAUSEEEE it reminded me and a few other girls I've talked to of Zoya Remove + and because Zoya is $9.99 for a 8oz bottle and Cutex is $1.96 (EDIT: at Walmart) for a 6oz bottle.

So jump over and take a look at my comparison research of these two removers:
