Loafer Love!

I love the new loafers that I keep seeing around on Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People!

I am absolutely in love with these by Sam Edelman! I have never been a huge stud fan but I want these.
These are another good choice from Jeffrey Campbell! Around the same price. 

These are the minty green ones from Jeffrey Campbell also! Minty green is one of my favorite colors! 

For those that are not a fan of the studs here are some simple patent caramel colored loafers from J.Crew.

Half moon nails!

   I did half moon nails yesterday! It was my 2nd attempt of the day. I first did it with minty green upper and purple moons. I love the combination but I made some critical mistakes. Too many coats of polish and when I took my stickers off it peeled the polish underneath. I took the polish off and went and worked on some other things around the house and came back to it. I decided to use 2 polishes that are very close in color so if it was off then it would be harder to tell. This worked pretty well!
Far Left: Sunset Orange, Middle: Jack Pot, Far Right: Top Coat

  • Polishes used: 
    • Jack Pot from Pure Ice (Top coat)
    • Sunset Orange from Rimmel London (Under coat = half moons)
    • Sally Hansen Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthening top coat
  •  I also used page reinforces to get my guide! 
  • After I finished my nails I found out that your supposed to peel the stickers off when the nail polish is still wet! Part of my problem was that I was waiting till it was dry.
 I think it turned out alright. I think that I will try it again. Although I would like to get it done professionally one day. But as a broke college student that has to wait.

Finished nails, already chipped. It did not last long but hopefully next time it will!
