Mara Hoffman Bikini Nails!

It's been so hot! But summer is my favorite, so I don't mind. It just means more pool time! Every summer I like to do a mani to match one of my bathing suits. You can check out last years here and the year before that here.

This year I have another Mara Hoffman pattern. All her patterns are amazing, but I had to have this particular bikini because it reminds me of the "Sea of Holes" from The Beatles movie "Yellow Submarine," which is a favorite of mine. Except this would be the rainbow "Sea of Holes," so, even better!

Fourth of July Nails

Hi there! Long time no see. I'm a bit late, but I was off from work last week for the 4th of July holiday, and I jam packed that week full of activities, so I didn't have time to post here. I did post to Instagram though!

I went up to Maine for the holiday weekend, and spent the rest of my week on a whale watch, at a water park, by the pool with family, and pub crawling :)

But I did make time to actually do my nails! I always love doing my nails for the 4th of July, I love the red, white & blue combo, and it only feels right to do them around the holiday. I actually did 2 mani's this year, one for the 4th, and one for the following weekend when I did a patriotic pub crawl. I'm only going to show you one today, as well as a cute little mani I did for a friend for the holiday as well.

Mine are similar to the ones I did last year. Did it totally freehand too!

Did this patriotic mani for a friend!
