a blog about my busy little life as a mom

nail craze


First of all, allow me to introduce myself.  I’m Rita Martin, mom to two (soon to be three), living in the Pocono Mountains.  I also blog over at Local Flair Magazine and my own personal blog.  I hope you’ll follow along with this, my newest adventure, as I blog each month about beauty, health, and fashion for one of my favorite local places, Pure Day Spa.

Recently, it seems like nail polish and manicures are all the rage.  I’ll admit, I have fallen victim to this trend and become a little bit obsessed myself!  Pinterest is full of great ideas, but you can really be creative.  I love to do separate colors on my hands and feet, instead of always matching.  Here’s a great chart to show some coordinating color pairings.

I also love the idea of an “accent nail.”  I tried it on my pointer finger, but found that I much prefer my accent nail to be on my ring finger.

Polka dots have been my favorite for as long as I can remember, so I love this polka dotted mani!

Some others ideas I have found online are pretty awesome, but a little too complicated to try at home.  Leave these ones to the professionals!

Some recent additions to my polish collection include:
