The One With June and July's #MonthlyManiFavs

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this first day of August?  Can you believe August is already here?  I feel like it hasn't even been summer because we haven't had that many hot days.  The weather is so weird lately.

Can we take a minute and love on my new blog layout!?  Thank you so much to Sarah from 25 SweetPeas who re-did my whole blog for me the other night!  Honestly, I don't know what I would have done without her.  I've been wanting a new layout for so long, but had no clue what I was doing and just never did it.  I stuck with the same look for the past 5 years.  Now that I have this new blog layout, I'm hoping it will ignite the blogger in me and get me motivated to get more posts up!

As promised, today I am sharing with you my monthly mani favs from June and July.  June kind of got away from me, and by the time I noticed that I didn't have a monthly fav up, it was almost midway through the month.  So, let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we....


  • The One With the Cracked Stone Looking Manicure - After being inspired by a stamped design I saw similar to this one, I had to try to re-create it.  Since I'm not one for stamping plates, and honestly have no clue how to stamp, I decided to free-hand the look and I think it turned out really well.  Maybe next time I'll try to go a little lighter on the lines, mine are kind of thick.
  • The One With the OPI Tape Manicure - What can I say, I love me some OPI blues.  This manicure highlights two of my favorite OPI blue polishes.  Took me a little bit of time, but was well worth it.

  • The One With the Watermelon Nail Art - Absolutely loved this watermelon design.  I've been wanting to re-create that accent nail for quite some time, but never did because I didn't have the right shaped vinyls like other bloggers.  Then it hit me, I could freehand the design.  So I put my own little twist on it and was very pleased with the results.
  • The One With Daisies and OPI No Tan Lines - I think this manicure is going to show up in my favorites of the year post.  Something about that orange and the look of those daisies.  I received a lot of compliments on that manicure and kind of want to do it again with a different base.
What do you think?  Which are your favorites?  Loving my new blog?!?

Thank you again Sarah for all that you did!!!!  <3

Until next time, <3.
