Mani Monday – Rainbow Edition

Love is Love.  In addition to supporting Gay Pride this weekend, this rainbow mani just cheered me up every time I looked at it.  Who doesn’t love a rainbow?  After rain, it is a beautiful surprise.  A rainbow, like love, goes with everything.

Mani Monday – Blue Stripes Edition

It’s no secret that I love all shades of blue and all manner of stripes, so this week’s mani falls into the neutral category for me.

It has been a little busy lately with the end of the school year and a lot going on as I am sure is the case for most of you.  In fact, you may have noticed there was no Mani Monday on Memorial Day.  I hosted a really fun dinner party on that Sunday and decided to take the holiday off.

My weekly manicures are regular polish, I have never tried a gel manicure on my nails.  I tried gel on my toes this winter which was a game changer.  Due to the process and fast drying I was able to walk out in socks and shoes and go have a workout right away.  I was excited to try Essie’s Gel Couture Color.  It has a “gel finish” without the process.  My manicure is currently on Day 8 and it looks brand new!

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The colors are “Perfect Posture”  and “Surrounded by Studs” in Essie Gel Couture Color.

Items in the photos:

Saint James Striped Shirt

“Blue, The History of a Color”

Mani Monday -Gray Geometric Edition

This week I am easing into fall even if we do have off and on heat waves with gray   I added a pop of pink and black and a little geometry.  Geometry was my favorite subject in High School.  There is something soothing about these triangles.

The color is “Hyde Park Place” by NailsInc with “Black Taxi” also by NailsInc and Fiji by Essie.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Happy Monday!
