Mani Monday - Jet Setting

Yes, I know it's Tuesday😊

So I'm quite busy over the next few weeks. I just got back from an amazing, fun, and romantic trip with my hubby in Chicago. If you're my Facebook friend, sorry to blow up your news feedπŸ™ˆ  But I wanted to share the great time we had.

I was WAY overdue for a manicure. Like embarrassingly overdue. This Memorial Day Weekend we were in Chicago as I mentioned, this upcoming weekend we are going to my darling friend Darcy's wedding in Bermuda, and the weekend after we are going to celebrate our awesome cousin Jay's 40th birthday in Vegas! So I needed a polish that was fabulous but not too colorful where it would clash with a dress for a wedding.

I was drawn to this clear looking polish with specs of gold. It felt both fabulous for Vegas but classy for my friend's wedding. I also reshaped my coffin nails back to stiletto shape (inspiration from my last client who had awesome nails). You can't really see how they gleam in the photos so check out my like 5 second Instagram vid @rebelle1010. Let me know what you think. Or show me yours! I could use some summer mani-inspiration. 

Mani Monday! Hot and wild blue nails

I had such a muted mani going on, that I decided I needed something wild and crazy. I love the blue, it's so fun and edgy. GorgeosaπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™.

Also, the color is called Rue du France and I have a slight obsession with France (huge obsession with Paris, ugh, love it.)

Mani Monday! Muted Mani for Lauren's Wedding

For my last manicure I wanted to do something a bit more muted. I rented an amazing dress from Rent the Runway and since it was a very fabulous dress, I felt I needed to go a bit more natural with hair, makeup, and nails in an effort to not look overdone. I was SO in the mood to rock some edgy nails, but I wanted a classy look for Lauren's beautiful wedding at the Fox Hollow. Congratulations to Lauren & Danny! We had an amazing time at their wedding!

Mani Monday! Valentine's Day Sparkly Red Coffin NailsπŸ’…πŸ»

As I've been told, "coffin" nails sounds kind of creepy. OK. I understand that. I guess having grey/ mauve coffin nails last time didn't really help my case. But I love them anyway, they're AMAZE. The coffin nail shape gives my red nails a little edge and look super cool. What's everyone else rockin today for Mani Monday? Please comment or post a pic below! xo

Here's a chart showing the different nail shapes:

Mani Monday! Mauve-Gray Coffin Nails

I love my signature stiletto nail, but I wanted a change. I love to switch it up with my nails. I get bored of the same ole same ole.

I had an aquamarine shimmery stiletto nail going previously, and I wanted something in the nude family and wanted to switch the nail shape up. Coffin nail, although it's a bit of a strange name, it's a pretty cool shape. Mine isn't super dramatic because it's not easy transitioning from stiletto nails to coffin nails, but I still love what my nail lady did.

I was inspired by some winter lip colors and found a color that is kind of a mauve-gray. I found it to be very chic and I'm really into it!

(I'm in love with these leggings by the way! Very cool and they actually fit great for the material)

What do you think of the nails? What are my Rebelles rockin? I could use some inspiration for my next mani in 3 weeks!
