Favorite Things – Nail Polish

Favorite ThingsToday I am linking with Andrea and Erika to share my favorite nail polish colors.

As embarrassing as it is to admit… I am a nail biter. Ugh! I have tried all of the bad tasting polishes that are used for breaking the habit but I have yet to find one that works. Therefore, I usually keep tips on all of the time. I do try to keep them as short as possible though because I feel like the shorter they are, the more natural looking they become. With that being said, here are a few of my favorite colors.


OPI “Pamplona Purple” is what is currently on my toes right now. A couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend Stacey and I were getting pedicures and I just wasn’t crazy about the pink polish that I had originally picked out. She finished a little early so I told her to go over to the colors and surprise me. This is what she came back with and I am a total fan.


OPI “Black Cherry Chutney” and  OPI “Lincoln Park After Dark” are two of my favorites for Fall and Winter.

For spring and summer I like to go bright with either OPI “Strawberry Margarita” or OPI “Cajun Shrimp”. By reading this, one would think that I am an OPI snob but the truth is that OPI is the main brand that my salon carries so 9 times out of 10 I end up choosing an OPI color.

Recently, I have been pinning lighter, more neutral, shades for Spring. Below I have shown some of my favorite nude nail inspiration for you ladies.








August Favorites

Favorite Things PArty

The best place to be in the August heat is by the pool or on a beach! Here are a few of my favorite items that are perfect for laying by the water.


If you haven’t used Baby Lips go and get some now! I always ask for tubes at Christmas and usually get enough to last me throughout the year. This lip balm has just the right amount of moisture. It also has SPF 20. Perfect to throw into your beach bag.


A coverup is a must! This one is on sale at Belk for only $10.49!!


Bubba Kegs are perfect for long pool days. I also use mine for water at work. I fill it up before leaving the house and by 5pm I still have ice left.

July Favorites

Favorite Things PArtyDuring CMA fest in June, Crystal Light had a booth set up and were offering samples, if you liked it, you got a 1.62oz bottle to take home with you. The Strawberry Lemonade won my heart! Since then, Chris and I have both grown to love it. We go through a bottle per week. This has really helped me cut out all of the sodas that I was drinking.
