My nails for the week!

My manicure!

I decided to kick spring off with some lighter colours.  I’ve being wearing straight up vampy colours all winter long.  I am so glad to start rocking my brights and pastels!

  • Tips:       Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Load (a lemony/yellowish white crème)
  • On ring: OCC Nail Lacquer in Cruising (a light, gold metallic foil) with Sephora by OPI Nail Lacquer in Worth My      Weight (medium gold glitter with large gold and silver round glitter)
  • Also used CND Stickey Base Coat and Super Shiney Top Coat

I love this look!  What are you guys wearing for spring and summer??
