The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2014

Hey guys!

So after a lot of back and forth, I've decided to do the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge this year!

For those who don't know, it's pretty much what it says: it's a 31 day nail art challenge where you do different nails everyday following the theme of the day. You can do it any month, but a lot of bloggers do it every September and after years of watching others do it, I decided to jump in too.

These are the prompts for all 31 days, which I got from the lovely Chalkboard Nails. You can check out her post here for all the details on the challenge.

I kind of can't believe I'm doing this haha. But after months of feeling lousy and having lots of nail breaks, I'm excited for the challenge and for all the practice I'll get out of it.

See you September 1st!

Kimono? More Like Kimo-YES!

First off let me say that my friend came up with that title, and I am not responsible for any groaning and/or falling out of chairs that may result. :)

If there's one trend that's really been hot this summer, it's definitely the kimono. From celebs to fashion bloggers, everyone's enamored with the easy breezy boho look and throwing on a kimono is the cherry on top.

I recently went to Fashion Q and picked up my first kimono. If you follow me on Instagram you know I couldn't wait to style it and put something together.

I got the Love crop top from Fashion Q too and I love how the floral pattern almost matches exactly. I paired it with fringe shorts from Bloom and a fringe purse from Target to complete the look.

When I actually wore this out, I decided to wear sheer black tights and black heeled oxfords to add a different kind of edge to it.

I get my pose ideas from Lily Munster. And I love it.

Of course I needed to match the pattern on my nails too, so I did floral accent nails. I mentioned in my last post how much I loved my black half moon stiletto nails so I did them again, although my nails still haven't grown out as much.

The black is (of course!) Wet N' Wild - Black Creme. The roses are a mix of Wet N' Wild - Tickled Pink, Sinful Colors - Bianca, Sinful Colors - Snow Me White, Sinful Colors - Happy Ending, and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Espresso.

I can't end this post without a picture of my cousin and I. This was the last time seeing her for the summer so we took a lot of pics.

I hope you're all having a summer filled with making good memories and rockin cute nails.
