Today’s post is a short one, but I wanted to share my quick and easy chip fix for my polish.
Polish from base of nail to tip:
Julep Polish in Sandra/SpaRitual Polish in Looking Glass/SpaRitual Polish in Drop Dead Gorgeous.
The tips of my nail polish started to chip from all of the wear and tear I put them through. Rather than taking off my polish and starting from scratch, I decided to give them a quick fix. All it took was one coat of a deeper pink polish to not only fix the chips but also give the design a new look!
What do you do when your polish starts to chip? Do you touch it up or start from scratch?

I have a not so good update on my at home gel manicure. It is already chipping. However, I am not quite ready to swear off this product all together.
The top picture shows the chips in my at home gel manicure. The second picture shows me crocheting.
Why? Because I think that is what brought on the chipping. Crocheting may not seem like it would do much damage, however, I have been working on a significant crocheting project the past week. When I am working on the squares I am frequently using my nails to pull and tighten the yarn. The chipping is exclusive the fingers I am using most to crochet.
So ultimately, I think this at home gel manicure has the potential to hold up for a week or more with normal wear and tear. I just think it’s not quite strong enough to stand up to direct abuse. For the $5 I spent on the kit I don’t mind.
If you go easy on your nails I think the at home gel manicure will hold up well for you!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Hello lovely readers!
Today I thought I would switch things up with a nail polish post. I am my own manicurist and I love coming up with my own polish creations. Lately I’ve been enjoying gathering ideas from Pinterest as well.
I love a funky take on the traditional “manicure”. Today I went with my vegan Spa Ritual nail polish in “Undercurrent” for the base color. Read more about it in my other post. The top color is silver sparkle by OPI. I got this years ago as part of a mini-set so I am not sure what the actual shade is. I am fortunate enough to have a steady hand so I painted the tips on myself.
Last but not least! I would like to give a big thank you to Stephanie over at Twenty-Something for nominating me for “The Versatile Blogger” award! Please head on over to her blog and see all of her lovely posts!
