Striped Lightning & #MonthlyMani September

September 3, 2014

Hello friends, and Happy Wednesday!  Having a day off at the beginning of the week is wonderful, but it does make the rest of the week feel as if it’s flying by.  I did take the time, however, to try out some more fun nail stickers that I received from Born Pretty Store!


These funky-shaped nail tip guide stickers reminded me of lighting bolts; obviously, I just couldn’t pass them up!  I thought it would be super fun to use some of my favorite colors – both recent and all-time faves – to create a different look featuring the lightning bolt shape.  Let’s see what ya think!


These stickers could not have been easier to use (you can find ’em here)!  I am still a novice when it comes to using these custom nail art doohickeys (yeah, I said it), but even I could manage this simple process.  I will admit, however, that I probably should have waited just a teensy bit longer for the polish to dry before peeling the stickers off, but I’m impatient.  I had to do a little bit of clean-up, but it wasn’t too bad, and I think my nails came out great.


Now for the fun part: Born Pretty Store has generously provided you – my readers – with a 10% off coupon code for any purchase!  Just apply the code “AT10K31″ during the checkout process to receive 10% off your order.


Before I go, I also have an exciting announcement…  That’s right, we are just 2 short weeks away from the next #MonthlyMani, so without further ado, the September #MonthlyMani theme is:

Autumnal Hues!

We’ll be posting our fall color themed manicures on Wednesday, September 17th, just one week before the first day of fall, or the Autumnal Equinox.  In case you missed August’s #MonthlyMani, you can check out Romance in Bloom; or, if you want to join in the #MonthlyMani fun, just let me know!

As always, thanks for reading!  Love, Kristi :)
