i’m wearing (pinkie to thumb): “hayden” by julep, “sun kissed” by sally hansen, “tart deco” by sally hansen, “brazilliant” by essie and “paz” by zoya.

this is what happens when you can’t decide what color to paint your nails. it ended up being a sort of unintentional ombre mani! then my new ann taylor shoes (they were my mother’s day gift and thankfully 30% off) were delivered and i could NOT wait to open them up. and i ruined my mani. but it was worth it. i am in love with my new shoes! they are even prettier on. love when that happens.

    Those shoes are hot!!!! And love the colorful mani. That is a great idea when you can’t just pick one color. Which happens to me almost every time. By they way thanks for your help yesterday. Got it to work. You are awesome.

        haha…I’m surprised no one else has already asked. I am so obsessed with nail polish, it is ridiculous! 🙂 Thanks for feeding my addiction.

    Ann taylor has really upped their shoe game this season! I just did something similar last night, sorting through nail polish… I have so much pink and dark reds…and hardly anything else.

    I actually have been thinking of ordering those shoes in black for a wedding this summer, but I love them so much I may order both colors if I get a 30% off coupon! Did you order up a size or down? Love the ombré mani too!

    ” i could NOT wait to open them up. and i ruined my mani. but it was worth it.”

    ^ hahaha that part almost made my coffee spilt out of my mouth from chuckle. lol I just got my new Alexander Wang shoes too… I was checking out the door every hour to see if it’s here.. lol

    It’s beautiful nails by the way! Never tried multi-colored/ombre nails before, but I was interested when I saw it on pinterest the other day… And nice Ann Taylor shoes! nude sandals can never go wrong! 🙂

    I love the ankle strap on those heels! I think they are so sexy.

    I ruined my mani last night too. I usually do my nails at night, and even if they have been dry for an hour, I always wake up with sheet indentations. Boo.

    I am not sure what’s going on but the comment box isn’t loading in your recent post. I love that blazer Jenn! I bought that for my Mom as part of her Mother’s day gift 🙂 She really wanted it the last time we were in Zara but her size wasn’t available! I think Zara was about to list me as a stalker as I kept going in there hoping someone would return it or they’d get another shipment. A miracle happened and her size was there the Thurs right before mother’s day 🙂 It looks beautiful on you and enjoy it!

    The Pantone-style mani is actually adorable, and I love all of those juicy summer shades!
