 I love seeing what’s new in nail colors. Trending nail colors, stickers, nail stencils and nail art. Don’t you? I admit we do most of our manicures at home. Although if I could afford to go get it done at the nail salon more often I would. Wouldn’t you? Today’s nail trend spotting and nail beauty tips will help you pick your nail colors for at home or if your headed to the nail salon.

We love salon days with pampering. Last time we went I tried gel nails. They were great especially since I’m rough on my nails. Although getting them off was another story. Since I can’t make it to the nail salon that often, I wanted to browse the nail color selections after I got my hair touched up.

Did I tell you we have a new Ulta Store nearby?! Our nearest Sephora is 45 minutes away!I know your probably thinking big deal. But, for us in a rural area it is a big deal!! I’ve been getting my hair touched up and cut there. My local stylist is Tomara. I’m so happy to have found her since my daughter who is a stylist is 5 hours from me.

Yes, our Ulta store has a salon. Maybe they all do? But, I’m not sure. Since I was having my hair processed with 45 minutes to read I had been flipping through fashion and beauty magazines. When I was done I headed down the store isles to see what was a hot buy or trending.

OPI Nail Polishes

First I spotted a sale section near the salon area. I found whim nail polish  (shown below) marked down to $2.49 from $10! I picked up the nail color Drinks at Sunset. Then I walked the polish isle and near the front. Only to circle back to the deals on OPI it was buy 2 get one free.

I picked up a deeper orange Aloha from OPI and Top Coat from OPI. I decided to first try my bottle of Whim since I’ve never tried that brand before.

I am not the best at self manicures but, hey a girls gotta do what you gotta do. With the first coat I wondered if this was a tosser but, by the second coat it looked pretty good. With the top coat added it’s now on three days and no chips….

  1. I love doing my nails and never have naked nails. I love various pink, blue, green and purple shades with sparkles. I don’t do reds or oranges. Every once in awhile I will do a buff or neutral depending on the occasion.

    1. Hi Shelly, I can do other peoples nails better than my own but, with that said I’m getting much better at it. I have so many colors we got an acrylic organizer. I love the new buffs & greys too. Thanks for taking the time to comment. See you again soon.
