Nothing is more chic to me than black and white stripes. I always think stripes are such an effortless way to look crisp and polished, so when I came across this dress in Target I had to have it (and at $23 it’s a complete STEAL). I must say that Target has SOOO many great pieces this season, it’s pretty much a one stop shop for your entire spring wardrobe. As you can see I also scored this orchid colored bag from there (and it was on sale for $17).

What makes you guys feel chic??? And if you haven’t stopped by Target yet this season make sure you go!! And please share with me what you got!!

Nail Wraps- Jamberry Nails

Happy Day After Easter!!!!!!!

This has to be one of my favorite “holidays”…. the day when all of the chocolate bunnies and Starburst jelly beans go on mega sale. I’m pretty sure tonight will end in a sugar headache or tummy ache based on all of the candy I’ve indulged in so far today.

I was really lucky to have a rep from Jamberry Nails contact me about their nail wraps. I had never heard of them before then, so when she asked if I wanted to try a few out I was intrigued. I had tried nail wraps (and hated them) before. So, I must say I was skeptical at first, but after using them I actually am a fan.

The entire process (with taking off my old polish, cutting, and filing my nails) took about 30 minutes. The nail wraps came with VERY easy to follow instructions. All you need is a blow dryer and a cuticle pusher. I don’t own a cuticle pusher so I used my nails to push them into my cuticles (which I know now is not the best way to do things). I LOVED the fact that I didn’t have to wait for any polish to dry. I also am in love with the funky designs they sent. And, get this, you can customize designs and colors!! Yup, if you send them an image they can create unique nail art specifically for you. Another plus, you can use these on your toes!!!!

I am no artsy girl, and I completely suck at doing my own manicures…so even the Jamberry nail wraps were a bit difficult for me (as you can see by the few mistakes I made). I’m sure with practice I will become a real pro at this. Be sure to follow me on twitter and I will let you know how the nail wraps hold up throughout the week.

Do you guys use nail stickers, or nail wraps? What are your thoughts on them???
