Hellooooooo! At the beginning of August, I went to my stomping grounds of Elysian Nails for a bit of pampering. My claws were looking jank and they needed filled, cut down, and sharpened desperately. I was also looking forward to changing the color to give one final hurrah to the warm weather before fall begins – it will be here before we know it! Take a look at my New Lemonade Nails and let’s discuss:
I have a punk themed OOTD shoot planned and I loved the idea of bright yellow nails along with the red plaid of the blazer that I’ll be sporting. So, the traffic light yellow was an absolute must. And, on my way to the salon as I pondered what color to get the accent nail, I thought some flamingo pink for a lemonade theme would be adorable. As the cogs started turning, I decided that getting the reverse of the colors on each hand would be even MORE adorable and the rest is history.
Are these nails punk? Lol, not in the slightest. But, damnit, are they cute. The bright colors and the unexpectedness of each hand being different gives me an instant confidence boost and my nail tech definitely did me right. These are the perfect lounge by the pool with a fruity drink in hand nails and they just might be my favorite yet!

Helloooo! On Sunday morning, I was able to spend some time being pampered at Elysian Nails for a fill. Some months, my nails grow out and still look alright but, this time around, they were looking SUPER janky so I was happy to get them looking right again. On my way to the salon, I had the idea of navy and grey in mind so I just went with it instead of changing my mind a million times at their polish station. And, I am glad I stuck to my guns because they look great! Check it out:
I love the nautical vibe of the dove grey with the deep navy. It makes me think of huge, puffy clouds tumbling over a vast ocean and they are simple but really chic. After going back to my usual black nails last month, I was still hankering for a dark color and I figured that navy was my next best bet. My walk on the dark side will satisfy the urge for wanting black nails again in the meantime but I can’t promise that I won’t be selecting my black polish next month! 😀

Helloooooooo! Last weekend, I spend a wonderful Saturday morning getting pampered at Elysian Nails for a much needed fill and cut down. My work week was long and stressful so it was so nice to sink into a chair and relax for an hour and a half while my talons got loved on. And, I know I said that I was going to stray away from black nails, but I just couldn’t help resorting back to Old Faithful this time around. Take a look:
While looking through Elysian Nails’ extensive polish collection, the emerald glitter and black combination just spoke to me. It screamed Slytherin from Harry Potter and I was feeling like a badass and couldn’t say no! The daggers also needed shortened as they were getting much too long, even for me, and the lovely young lady named Mary who pampered me did a bang up job.
When it comes to getting my nails done, I could go either way when it comes to chatting with the nail tech. But, Mary was so bubbly and delightful that it was impossible to not chit chat with her for most of the time. She also worked right next to her sister and their little sibling rivalry and quips was so adorable! It made for an insanely pleasant morning and it left me feeling so much better after a difficult week. 🙂

Hi! I had a lovely morning of pampering earlier in the week. It was so nice! I got my hair cut first and then I headed off to Elysian Nails to get a much needed fill. I had the cutest nail tech named Kim fix up the talons and she was an absolute doll. AND she did an amazing job so I can’t wait to go back to her next month. Check out these fiery beauties she fixed up perfect for summer time:
These nails are an absolute fiesta and I am so obsessed! After doing a sweet pink and gold for spring, I needed something with a pop and the only answer was a bright red to go with the promises of eighty degree weather in Ohio. These nails make me feel so saucy and they look really fun and sunny. Now all I need is a beach and a Margarita to go with these babies and I’m all set!

Hellooo everyone! This past week, I treated myself to a new set of acrylics. The ones that I had been wearing for over a half a year or so were getting pretty flimsy and it feels so good to have some nice, sturdy new nails again. And, did I mention that they’re pretty?! I went with a springy color palette and am in love with the soft pink and shock of glitter that I chose. Check it out:
I recently painted one of my client’s nails with a pale pink similar to the color that I went with and I was obsessed. So, I decided that that shade definitely had to be used once I was able to get my nails done. Light pink is so lovely for spring and it reminds me of one of my favorite flowers – pink hyacinths! The gold accent nail compliments it nicely, too, and is reminiscent of golden foil wrapped chocolate eggs for Easter. 😀
And, as always, Elysian Nails did a wonderful job with my talons. I honestly can’t believe I ever went to a different salon, because this one is the real deal. Amazing techs, gorgeous set up, and fair prices – it can’t be beat and I am so happy to have finally found a salon that I love!

Hello!! This past Thursday, I enjoyed a much needed fill at my wonderful salon, Elysian Nails. Seriously, I can’t rave enough about that place. It is so posh, the nail techs are brilliant, and the prices are amazing. I always leave there feeling like a million bucks while only spending a fraction of what I used to pay to get my nails did. This time around, I chose a cherry vanilla motif and ended up with these beauties. Take a look:
For the first time ever, I have red nails and I am so in love! It took long enough to go with nails the color of my namesake, but it was worth the wait because these are fabulous. My talons are nice and sharp and the deep cherry color along with the nude accent nail feels so lux and elegant. This color combination is edgy in a different way. I still feel like the queen of the underworld as I did with my black nails but now I feel like the queen of everything else, too!
Thanks, Elysian Nails! ❤

Hiiii everyone! Last week, I got my talons filled and sharpened and went for a color that I never thought I would before… Hot pink! As I walked into the salon and went to pick out my polish, this gorgeous shade of bright and bold pink spoke to me and, trust and believe, that I listened. And, a glittery twenty-four karat gold accent nail to top it off didn’t look too bad, either! Take a look:
I feel crazy even saying this, because I am anything but a pink girl. However, I think these might be my favorite nails yet! The hot pink and gold combination is just pure fun. The super shiny pink and the sparkling glitter look so lux and I feel like these are the ultimate Barbie nails.
My new nails make me smile every time I look at them, because they make me feel so good! I tried something super out of my comfort zone and, like it normally does, it paid off completely. The colors are girly as can be, but the sharp shape is still rocker and cool. Kind of like me, I suppose. 100/10 would definitely get again!
