Nail File Friday’s: Pink Glitter Outlined Nail Tutorial

The outlined nails is the trend, it’s also very different – pretty different! I used here a pretty pink with shimmer polish, but you can do this look with whichever color you enjoy. The look is fun, the negative space where you can see the natural nail is also nice and it’s thinking outside the box to your everyday looking polished nails!

Nail File Friday’s: Easy + Simple Light Pink With Glitter Detail

So, after all the dark and neon colors I’ve been trying out over on my YouTube, this week I wanted to share with you something neutral and pretty but still toned down. I went with this neutral, and very beautiful light pink/nude tone nail polish by Essie – Go Go Geisha. It’s that perfect neutral shade that you can wear to work, a wedding, school, etc. when you want a color that isn’t loud.

Of course though, I still wanted to ‘dress it up’ a bit, and decided on this tiny detail of colored glitter on the ring finger – love the final look!

Nail File Friday’s: Easy Negative Space French Manicure

This is a very easy negative space french manicure in lime green. This is such a fun color and I’m especially loving the name – Mojito Madness. If you’re low on time, a negative space nail tutorial is the thing to do.

If you can’t freehand a french manicure, no worries, use scotch tape as a guide to help you get a straight line. Also, use as little polish at a time, using too much will cause too many mistakes. Enjoy!

Nail File Friday’s: Korean Inspired Nail Art

This week I was inspired by the South Korean nail art. It is so easy, they’re all about leaving the nails looking minimalistic which includes the ever so easy, negative space. I always enjoy looking at different trends, especially in the world of nail art. So, today with my great-grandparents in mind I went back to replicate this very fun Korean trend. Enjoy!

This week I am bringing you something so fun and vibrant, and so easy to do! And before you find this a bit intimidating to achieve, don’t!

The use of color is so cheerful, use neons, use purples, and pinks, do not be afraid of color, as it can alter the look of your hands, even helping you feel more happy.

Chiari Sister, I See You

Chiari Sister, I See You

As a stay at home mom, I frequently think about other moms that are in my position. It’s no secret that the stay at home parent doesn’t get enough credit. The day to day seems lost in translation to many, except the one living it. And often we need the reassurance, because as mothers – humans, we want to be seen and loved.

Whether you have Chiari Malformation + Syringomyelia or any other illness that physically impairs you from feeling your best, know that you are doing your very best. I often compare myself to the wrong people, to those that don’t have physical pain and not needing to be medicated for pain relief.

As for the stay at home parent living with chronic pain though, the day to day is different and is a tiny bit more challenging. And for me, the physical pain can cause me to have self-doubt, so today, to my chronic pain brothers and sisters, I want you to know, I hear you and see you.

I want to reassure you that you are enough.

Just in case you haven’t heard it today, you did good!

You did more cleaning than your body could handle. It’s OK, not to do more, your body will thank you later.

Yes, it’s OK, the rest can wait.

You folded the laundry that had been sitting in the basket for over a week – no judgment, you did it!

You cooked a meal with love, and that’s all your family could ask for.

You’re pushing through the pain with every step you take – you’re a warrior!

Don’t be hard on yourself, you’re 1 in 1,000 uniquely designed people and not everyone will understand – and that’s OK!

Push through, shower; push through, brush your hair; push through, push through, push through.

Take a break, a much needed break.

Know that your illness doesn’t define you – you are beautiful, believe it.

You are so loved, and you are just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.

You are not alone.

Chiari sister – I see you.

Nail File Friday’s: How To Create A Flower With Toothpicks

The best things to do – in my opinion, are things that you can do with tools or things that you already own. Say, toothpicks?! This is so simple and so pretty, and it’s something you can do with what you already have in your kitchen! You can also, make this look your very own, by combining two of your favorite colors.
