Manicure Monday: Over the Moon or Hello Halo?

The traditional french manicure seems almost passé thanks to the recent nail art boom. There are tons of different variations of this classic manicure, but there are two that seem to be gaining more and more popularity: The Moon Manicure and The Halo Manicure.

The moon manicure is a fun, geometric play on the "moons" of your actual nails. 
(You know, the light colored crescent shape and the base of your nail.)

The halo manicure uses two colors to create a "halo" effect.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween Everyone!

I hope everyone will have a fun and safe Halloween tonight. For those affected by hurricane Sandy, I send my thoughts and prayers to you.

If anyone is staying in tonight for Halloween like me, here's a great manicure to try that will make you feel festive.

This manicure is super SWEET. The thumb is a tootsie roll. The pointer uses REAL Nerds candy. The middle finger is candy corn, of course. The ring ringer is a Hershey's kiss, and the pinky is a lollipop water marble! 

This was my Halloween tutorial last year. Check out the tutorial below and enjoy your Halloween!If this tutorial is too crazy, you can check out my skulls and bows manicure from this year HERE!

Let's Get Organized

A 9 o'clock last night, my friend Colby texts me this picture:
I think I might have died from laughing so hard. 1) I absolutely love The Little Mermaid and 2) It's true! I always want more nail polish no matter how big my collection gets. 

A lot of people have asked me how many polishes I have and how I store all of my nail polish and nail art supplies. It is pretty simple actually. I have 3 plastic tubs that I color-code my polish in and I have a case where I store all my nail art supplies.

The result: All of my things in one place where I can see and access everything easily. No, it's not the perfect system but it works!

How do you organize your collection? Answer in the poll below!

Again, it is Monday. If you read last week's Monday post, you know I'm not exactly a Monday fan, (and that I love a funny eCard!). But, have no fear, RAGE is here to cure your Monday blues.

Another quick Google search helped me find these hilarious rage memes about nail polish. Don't forget to vote for your favorite in the poll below! Happy Monday! ;)
