Holy Hera, this polish! ❤ So freaking gorgeous. I know quite a few people who say that this is a One-Coat Wonder (OCW) for them, but I had a few patches on the first coat, so I guess I just got in a hurry.

Independence Day Manicure and Pedicure

Press Sample buttonGood morning, my wonderful readers! How is your weekend going so far? Have you started to celebrate early? 😉 We are off to have a good Saturday with my husband’s family, but first, here are my mani & pedi for today.

Pretty & Polished White Hot | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Pretty & Polished White Hot macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

For my manicure, I started off with Pretty & Polished White Hot from the July box. This kind of finish isn’t my favorite, but since I was partially covering it up, I’m okay with it. This is 2 coats.

It has a really pretty green shimmer though that I couldn’t really  capture, unfortunately.

I then used P&P True Blue and Red-y.Set.Go! (both from the July box) and wavy lines and stars from You Polish (press sample) to create a flag.

This is so pretty in the sunshine! I am in so much love with True Blue – I can tell it’s going to be a favorite of mine.

Independence Day pedicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

For my pedicure, I used the Little Miss Independent nail polish trio from Colors by Llarowe, plus China Glaze Fairy Dust. I know, the picture is taken at a strange angle, but I can’t take pictures of my feet anymore (thank you, baby bump!) so my husband had to take this photo for me. LOL.

Well, I hope you have a great day today, and be safe out there!

Mommy & Me Nail Vinyl Decals by You Polish review

Press Sample buttonGood morning everyone! I hope you are enjoying the weather, wherever you are. We are gearing up for kind of a busy week ahead of us, sometimes it’s nice to just sit and relax at the end of the day. 🙂

Awhile back, Lauren from You Polish had reached out to some nail bloggers who are parents, to see if they’d be interested in reviewing some “Mommy & Me” nail vinyl decals. I jumped at the chance, because not only do I love to do my nails, my little girl loves to have her nails done as well. 🙂 I was sent three different sheets to try out:

Bows, spirals, and mermaids (full sheet):

Cupcakes, butterflies, straight lines (I was sent a half-sheet):

Hearts, stars, and wavy lines (half sheet):

I love the fact that each decal and lines set are made in several different sizes for those small child fingers, and my fingers as well. The lines and cut-outs were a little hard to separate from each other – make sure you have an exacto knife handy.
