It’s Spring Time Baby!

12 Apr

I’m very pregnant now and not feeling particularly pretty. But with the help of my gal pal Sally Hansen I don’t feel like a total mess.

I brought my manicure in season with Sally Hansen Salon Effects in “Spring Fever.”  I love these because I don’t have to wait for polish to dry.  I rarely get a few minutes to myself without having to do something for some little person with my hands, risking my polish job.

Once I had “Spring Fever” all over my nails I realized it was a little much for me.  So I cut it with “Tart Deco” by Essie.  Then I realized that my nails also happened to match my favorite shoes!




Beauty-ful Tips

14 Mar

I know that WhoopieCookie is not typically a beauty blog, but we do love beautiful things.  I came across this image via Pinterest last week and decided to try my hand at it.  In keeping with this week’s green theme and in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, I went with green glitter polish.

For the base color I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Peachy Keen (140).  The green glitter polish is Spoiled by Wet n Wild in Show Me the Money (S041).

After applying a couple coats of the Peachy Keen and letting it dry, I applied a thin coat of the Show Me the Money only going about 3/4 of the way down the nail.  The next coat of the green I started about 1/2 way down the nail.  I did one last coat of green just on the tips.  The thicker application at the tips creates the ombréed look.  I love ombré.  Of course you want to top it all off with your favorite top coat.  My favorite is called Out the Door.  Its a fast drying top coat for those of us who are always running “out the door” after painting our nails.  I literally painted my nails and then drove to work with the air conditioner on full blast pointed at my steering wheel!  A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
