flower manicure with Heather's Hues Lucy Polish Pickup Pack February 2019 thermal nail polish | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I’ve been crying off and on for days, and this manicure made me tear up even more. Confused? Well, I’ll attempt to clear it up. If you’re new to my blog, you might not know that this week marks the 8th anniversary of my mom’s death. Usually on the actual anniversary date, my kids and I go perform Random Acts of Kindness in our community in her honor. (#RAOK4Lucy on Thursday to follow along.) I’m really struggling this year though. Maybe it’s because as my youngest two grow up, I’m realizing more and more not only what my mom is missing, but what they are missing by not having known her. Let’s see more of this manicure and then I’ll tell you why it made me cry this morning.

Heather’s Hues All is Bright + Polish ‘M Dusty Trail manicure

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Heather’s Hues All is Bright (from December Polish Pickup Pack), 2 coats and no top coat. This applied really nicely, great formula.
Polish ‘M Dusty Trail, 1 coat and top coat. No complaints on formula!

This was part of a failed manicure for New Year’s Eve. I should have just stopped after I applied Dusty Trail but noooooo, I tried to do more. Ugh.

Guest Post by BeginNails: Pink Leopard Nail Art

Greetings and Nailutations,

Hello!  I’m Kristi from BeginNails and I will be standing in for Jessica today, while she is tending to a new addition!

To me, Jessica is a glamorous mom – stylish, always trying out new beauty looks and has amazing hair!  She is fierce, adventurous and I love her hair!  I wanted to go with something that was feminine, yet sassy and fun!

Products used:

Drip Drop Nail Paint: Sentimental Journey (pink), Yoga Pants (black)
It Girl Nail Art: IG112 Plate (press sample)
Clear Jelly Stamper: Stamper, Clean Up Brush (press sample)
Ellagee: Lickity Split Latex Mani Mask (press sample)
Heather’s Hues: Heart of the Matter

I started with a base of Sentimental Journey, which is the 3 year tribute polish for Drip Drop Nail Paint.  (Gotta love milestones!)  Then I protected my skin with Mani Mask and stamped with IG112 Plate from It Girl Nail Art and Yoga Pants.  I had to make it look soft, so I topped it off with Heart of the Matter – my current go to matte top coat.

Does this mani show femininity and sass and fun?  I hope I did Jessica proud and I hope she is enjoying her bonding time.

Thanks for reading,

Happy Polishing,

Kristi aka BeginNails
