Manicure Monday: Easy Floral Nails by Janelle

In my last Manicure Monday post I shared with you all a Marimekko inspired nail design by Janelle. This week I decided to try my hand at another one of Janelle's designs, an Easy Floral Nails look that I thought would compliment my graduation dress rather nicely. It was a bit of a rush job so please excuse any imperfections.

Overall, I think it came out very well and I'm sure if I had taken some more time it would've been amazing. If you want to try out this design for yourself head on over to Janelle's Easy Floral Nails tutorial on YouTube, you don't need a lot of skill to do this look nor do you need any professional tools. I actually prefer the Marimekko inspired design over this one, but that's my personal preference. Which one do you like better?

See you all next time!

Unboxing: Popsugar May Must Have Box

Earlier this week I had a wonderful surprise waiting in my mailbox and it was the May Popsugar Must Have Box! As a Popsugar Select Blogger I received a complimentary box to try out. I've heard a lot about the Popsugar Must Have Boxes and I have had the chance to review the special edition NatureBox a couple weeks back so I was excited to open it up and see what was inside.

Popsugar Must Have Boxes are $39.95/month and come with full-size hand-selected beauty, fashion, home, fitness and food products. It's much pricier than your typical subscription box service but if you consider the fact that you're getting full-sized products that are hand-picked by the Popsugar team it doesn't seem as unreasonable anymore. Plus, if you keep reading I'll be sharing how to get $10 off a 3 month subscription!

Unboxing: May Ipsy Glam Bag

Toward the middle of the month most people get a little worn-out. It's not quite as exciting as the beginning of a new month, nor is it as satisfying as making it through to the end. However, what the middle of the month means to me is a new Ipsy Glam Bag full of surprise goodies to keep me going.

If you remember my bag from last month you'll know that it had a rocker chic vibe and was full of products that I was super excited to try. This month's bag is a little tamer with cosmetics in lighter colors and skincare products tailored for the summer.

Manicure Monday: Marimekko Inspired Nail Art by Janelle

I haven't done my nails in months! I've been alternating between au naturale and OPI Nail Envy in order to keep my nails healthy during the brutal winter we experienced in NYC. However, now that warmer weather is here (and hopefully here to stay), I've gotten bit by the nail art bug and decided to try out a nail design by Janelle of Elle & ish.

Inspired by Finnish designer Marimekko's signature floral prints, this nail design just screamed Spring. I used my own combination of nail polishes but kept the shades true to Janelle's original color palette. It wasn't as hard as it looked and I was incredibly satisfied with my handiwork once I saw the final product. I received tons of compliments on my nails from coworkers and friends over the past two weeks that I've been sporting this design. Seriously though, check out Janelle's tutorial on YouTube as well as her other designs because she is hands down my favorite nail art blogger!
