When I'm older...

i'll wear whatever i want. ................................................. “I’ve apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It’s been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I’ve found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn’t mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I’ve just added more things to my list.” ................................................ Jeremiah 29:11

Now that the first day of spring has come and gone, it’s time to put away the dark, gothic nail colors and pull out the pastels. The new collection from SquareHue has the perfect colors for spring.

SquareHue is a monthly subscription service that delivers three nail polishes a month for only $14.99. That’s only $5 a bottle! This month’s theme is from the Passport Collection and is Paris. These three colors are absolutely gorgeous. The first color, Arc de Triomphe is a nude rose color with a hint of pink shimmer. The next color is called Champs Elysées and I know that this is going to be one of my most-worn polishes this season! It’s the perfect pastel green. It reminds me of Easter and grass and happiness. The last color is called Notre Dame and is a glossy cream. I think a cream nail polish should be a basic in anyone’s collection but for some mysterious reason, I didn’t have one before this. 

Overall, I was extremely pleased with this box. The nail polishes are high quality, they didn’t chip and they went on streak-free. I love that the colors were specifically chosen for the season and I think the whole collection is stunning! 

And, as if it couldn’t get any better, SquareHue donates a portion of your subscription to help other organizations. So. not only will you have the best lookin’ nails around town, but you will also be a charitable person. Win-win situation? I think so.

*ftc disclaimer: I was sent these products for free but all opinions are my own.

I have countless bottles of nail polish (we’re talking 180+ bottles) so I’m always searching for ways to use them other than just for my nails because let’s face it, I will never use them all up. Combine them with my love of hair accessories and we’ve found a winner.

I always see pretty metallic and colorful bobby pins at places like Anthropologie but $18 for four bobby pins? That’s not so pretty. Then, I got to thinking, why not just make my own? Brilliant right?

  1. Start with grabbing some scrap paper. 
  2. Clip the bobby pins on to the edge of the paper so they lie flat.
  3. Select the prettiest polish you can find and begin to paint the bobby pin.
  4. Use some q-tips to clean around the edges so the nail polish doesn’t pool up.
  5. Apply three coats. It takes a few coats to become opaque! It helps if you use lighter colored bobby pins.
  6. Wait for them to dry and then repeat on the other side.
  7. And voila! You’ve got yourself some good lookin bobby pins.
