MY TYPICAL TUESDAY NIGHT..PRETTY LITTLE LIARS & MY NAILS!

HEY LOVES! 
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! WE'RE ALMOST TO FRIDAY AND WE HAVE SURVIVED AND ENJOYED YET ANOTHER WEEK OF LIFE! :D 

I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU HOW I TYPICALLY SPEND MY TUESDAY NIGHT! SO I'M PRETTY SURE I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT'S OBSESSED WITH PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, I LOVEE THAT SHOW! IT IS DEFINITELY MY SHOW! :D BUT WHAT I ALSO LIKE TO DO EVERY TUESDAY WHILE WATCHING PRETTY LITTLE LIARS IS PAINT MY NAILS! 

MY TYPICAL SET UP! :)
NOW I'M NOT A PROFESSIONAL MANICURIST OR ANYTHING BUT I DO TRY AND KEEP UP WITH MY NAILS EVERY WEEK. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE NICE TO SHARE WITH YOU MY NAIL POLISH COLLECTION AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT COMES WITH IT. :) 

FIRST OFF, THIS IS MY NAIL POLISH RACK! :D NOW, I GOT THE IDEA FROM DULCE CANDY'S DIY ON HER YOU TUBE CHANNEL! I HAD MY DAD BUILD IT FOR ME AND I LOVE THAT IT CAME OUT SO WELL! I WAS RUNNING OUT OF ROOM! :P





I HAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT NAIL POLISHES THAT I'VE ACCUMULATED OVER THE YEARS. I HAVE A LOT OF ESSIE, JULIE G, COLOR CLUB, ETC. I ALSO LIKE TO GO TO TJ MAXX OR MARSHALLS AND BUY ESSIE NAIL POLISHES FOR CHEAPER! 

I HAVE THIS BAG WHERE I PUT ALL MY TOOLS INSIDE; SUCH AS MY DOTTING TOOLS, NAIL CLIPPERS, NAIL FILE, CUTICLE PUSHER, GEMS, STICKERS AND SUCH. THIS IS HOW I USUALLY SET EVERYTHING UP. 

I USE THE PLATE TO PUT NAIL POLISH FOR DOTTING OR FOR TRASH. :)




I'VE GOTTEN A LOT OF MY TOOLS SUCH AS GEMS AND DOTTING TOOLS FROM THE SWAP MEET. BUT I ALSO KNOW YOU CAN BUY THEM OFF AMAZON! :) 

I WANTED TO DO A MATTE BLACK LOOK FOR THIS WEEK'S NAILS AND I ALSO ADDED RED GEMS FOR UPCOMING VALENTINE'S DAY! <3 
FIRST OFF, I REMOVE MY OLD NAIL POLISH AND CLEAN UP MY NAILS. (FILE AND BUFF)


AFTER I HAVE A CLEAN BASE I USE MY 2 TOP THINGS THAT ARE MUST HAVES IN MY BOOK WHEN DOING MY NAILS. I PUT A TOP COAT ON MY NAILS FIRST! I USE THE O.P.I. BASE COAT TO PROTECT MY NAILS. I HAVE TO SHARE WITH YOU THE FAST DRY TOP COAT THAT I SWEAR BY! IT IS CALLED "SECHE VITE" AND I BUY IT FROM SALLY'S BEAUTY SUPPLY. IT IS THEE BEST TOP COAT EVER! PUT THIS BAD BOY ON AFTER YOUR MANICURE AND IN 2-5 MINUTES YOU ARE GOOD TO GO ABOUT YOUR DAY WITHOUT FEAR OF SMUDGING! OF COURSE I DIDN'T USE IT TODAY BECAUSE I WAS DOING A MATTE LOOK BUT I JUST THOUGHT I'D SHARE. ;) 


THE LITTLE CUP I GOT FROM THE PASADENA FLEA MARKET AND I USE IT TO POUR IN THE NAIL POLISH REMOVER WHEN I NEED TO CLEAN UP MY EDGES. I GOT THIS "SMUDGING" BRUSH FROM TARGET AND IT IS FROM ELF. IT WAS $1! AND I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT WORKS TO HELP CLEAN UP. THE NAIL POLISH REMOVER THAT I LIKE TO USE IS "BEAUTY SECRETS PURE ACETONE" AND IT IS ALSO FROM SALLY'S BEAUTY SUPPLY. I LIKE THIS ONE OUT OF ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE IT REMOVES THE NAIL POLISH AND GLITTER RIGHT AWAY! 

SO HERE IS MY FINISHED PRODUCT AFTER I'VE APPLIED THE BLACK NAIL POLISH AND MATTE TOP COAT. THE MATTE TOP COAT IS FROM FOREVER 21 AND IT WORKS PRETTY WELL. AGAIN, I DECIDED TO ADD THE RED GEMS JUST TO KEEP THE MANICURE A LITTLE MORE GLITZY! I USED MY TWEEZERS TO HOLD THEM WHILE I DIPPED THE BOTTOM IN THE MATTE TOP COAT AND ADD THEM TO MY NAIL. 

TIME TO CLEAN UP! 



AFTER THE CLEAN UP, HERE IS THE FINISHED LOOK! I WAS REALLY HAPPY WITH HOW IT CAME OUT AND THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A FRESH MANICURE! :)

  1. My two favorite things: at-home manis and PLL! I love going to TJ Maxx for Essie polish, too! It's such a bargain and I feel like they carry different colors than Target and other drugstores. I love your polish collection, too. Glad I'm not the only one with a large collection!

    xoxo,
    Amy
