Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

My pre-teen weekend

That’s right, I channeled my inner 12 year old this past weekend.
kiddos+Justin Bieber+Santa Magherita pinot grigio= me getting leopard print fingernails. 
And I dig ’em. 
Courtesy of the Sally Hansen salon effects. 

I had seen these before, but this was my first go round. 
Please note, if you accidentally spill wine on them, the WILL still stick. just sayin’. 
I actually really like them, they are fun for a change, and so super easy to put on! Still sporting them in the office this morning
Whilst getting my cheetah mani, I received further validation that my crush on le Bieber is in fact, legit. 
I caught the fever and watched Never Say Never with the kids, and I didn’t hate it. 
Bieber and vino, what more does a girl need?
If you haven’t seen this, you really should, the kid is mega talented, and pretty freaking adorable. 
Is he 18 yet? 😉 
Happy Monday!

  2. Ahh i love Justin Bieber, a guilty pleasure. Too young for me too tho haha!

  3. Courtney says:

    I DIG the nails. And maybe Justin Bieber a little bit too!!

  4. Café Moka says:

    Cute nails!!!
    Haha Justin will be 18 in 2 months! And he is Canadian! You should get married to him and get Canadian nationality!

  5. I love those nails, they look so good! I have been wanting to try those out for awhile but I was afraid they'd be hard to put on. I'm definitely going to try the Houndstooth ones!

    Hope you have a great week!

    LOVE ze nails! Also, while I think your love for Beibs is totally normal I have to share that my old roommate from college took her love to a wholeee nother level! She had Justin Beiber everything from posters to perfume AND she paid $800 to see him in concert in the 5th row. Crazy girl haha

  7. I've always wanted to try those nail things! Though I'm sorta hoping to use them on my toes? And I kinda want to see the Bieber movie too!

  8. MJ says:

    Love the nails. I always wanted to give them a try but it seems too labor intensive. Hmm, a drink would help with that. I want to try the halloween ones when it comes back around.

  9. Sarah says:

    Are those nails hard to put on? I've seen them around for a while but haven't used them yet because I don't know how well they work!

  10. Rissy says:

    I saw that movie in a theatre that served drinks… and I thought I had fallen in love… previously I didn't get the whole Bieber fever deal. haha I think the alcohol really puts it over the top.

    I have been wanting those sally hansen things forever! darn it, now I have gels

    I love it though! if you feel young, act young.


  11. love those cheetah nails!

  12. Monica says:

    I am dying to try those out!! I may finally go get them! I can't comment on the Beiber thing…I just can't.

  13. Michelle says:

    Very cute nails! I'm currently sporting the blue glitter Salon Effects…and yes, I'm a grown-up 25 year old 🙂

  14. The Bases says:

    I keep meaning to watch Never Say Never. I love the Bieber!

  15. Jill says:

    I've never tried those nail effects but maybe I should give them a whirl 😉 Btw, did you go to Target on Saturday? As I was pulling out of the parking lot I saw someone who looked like you from the side, but I wasn't sure!

  16. I love the sally hanson nails!! I mostly use them in the summer when i'm about to go to the beach and realize how terrible my nails look and need a quick cute mani/pedi. And, although i don't have the beiber fever, I do adore Justin Beiber and the way he treats his fans. Long story short, i was invited to the 2009 VMA's at the Rockefeller Center in NYC (as a part of Taylor Swifts performance) and also as a fan on the red carpet. At the time I had no idea who this kid was ( he was so short, practically reached my chest! and i'm only 5'5) but he stopped and took pictures for every little girl who was screaming his name. Couldn't say that for some other stars walking the red carpet (aheemmm Kanye West. just saying)

  17. I did those nails this weekend too except I chose the glittery gold ones. Mine turned out ok some nails better than others 😉

  18. Jamie says:

    Wine and leopard nail stickers. Sounds perfect !

  19. Kodie says:

    Confession – I LOVED Never Say Never 🙂 Gotta hand it to him, he's a super talented kid and he seems so down to earth. I made my sister watch it with me (she was NOT happy) about it and she loved it as well.

  20. mrsj says:

    I've got the Beiber Fever too 🙂

  21. I've always wanted to try those nail things out, now that I know they work I am going to have to give them a try!

  22. Emily says:

    Love Biebs… He is such a cutie patootie ( I can say that cause he's still a baby…) I also love the Sally Hansen Nail Effects–I used a really cute fleur de leis type pattern this summer and got so many compliments. I do love the cheetah print–that would match a few scarves I have!!! Glad you had a fun wine/Biebs/cheetah weekend! oxo

  23. Caroline says:

    Love this! I've been wondering about those nails. And is it sad that I want to watch the Biebs? He's a cutie!

  24. I blame all of our Justin Bieber crap on my kids you know the cd's and the movie but I seriously dig him, too! haha …and I love the Sally Hansen salon effects! They are awesome!

  25. Kerry says:

    ohhh wow i LOVE those nails!! i need these in my life! haha! not a fan of the bieber though, sorry! one direction all the way……..!! xx

  26. Um, wish I could pull off leopard nails! PS. Got my first "real weave" last night online… I seriously cannot wait until it comes in, it's like waiting for Christmas!

  27. I love this post! You crack me up! Bieber fever! I love the leopard nails! xo

  28. I love leopard print anything! And I am so excited to be a new follower of your blog.

    Have a great day,


  29. JR Mazur says:

    love the Sally Hansen nails, I used them for the first time last week. The only problem is getting them off, it takes more time than just polish..but totally worth it!

  30. Ashley says:

    LOVE those nails! I am def going to try them out! Also, a Bieber crush is totally legit! Enjoy. I think only one more year til he's legal 🙂

  31. Lauren says:

    I agree! The movie wasn't awful. 🙂

    Love those cute nails!

  32. Your nails look so cute! I am going to have to try them soon!

  33. Ashley says:

    Im 28 and my Daughter is 5……I think I like Justin more than she does. So it's OK I won't judge you lol

  34. Amber says:

    I love Bieber too! He's such a cutie pie! I'm loving the nails, I haven't tried those yet but they look perfect! Gotta try em out soon..

  35. Krystal says:

    Love the Justin Bieber!!

  36. Love the nails and the Biebs!

  37. meghan says:

    I love the Sally Hansen nails! I was so surprised by how good they looked and how long they stayed on when i did them last year! I've got a few more in my drawer to use one day! Love these leopard ones.

  38. Sarah says:

    Confession- I may or may not have seen the Beiber movie when it came out….and it was good! I tried those Sally Hansen nails this weekend too but they lasted all of 2 hours. They didn't fit on my nails that well and then when I went to wash my hair they started to peel off a bit….soooo I just took them off. Maybe I'll have to put a little wine on them next time 😉

  39. Magan says:

    Loving those nails! I have a friend who is a pro with these things but every time I try them it's a big fail (ok, so maybe I only tried once but bottom line is…I'm not good at them). You're love affair with the Beibs is cracking me up. Must admit – I don't see it. Not a Beiber fan. Sorry PLL! He's all yours!

  40. Blonde Maven says:

    The nails are great. I wish I could get away with ones like that at work…..I just am getting started on a blog of my own

  41. I don't understand the whole beiber thing, but I love the nails!

  42. Lauren says:

    Love em…I love anything animal print, leopard mostly. I may be a little too obsessed!

  43. love the nails, girlie. super cute. I've yet to jump on the Beiber train and fear that the movie could potentially turn me into a super fan, considering I tend to quickly become obsessed with things. lol. so, for safety reasons and legal what not, i'm going to pass. lol. as for the nails, totally coping this. 🙂

  44. Nikki says:

    love the nails! Just wait, they stay on SO GOOD! No chips for weeks! ha

    nikki @

  45. Nicole says:

    i wear those leopard ones ALL the time! LOVE then

  46. sarah says:

    i love the nails! i did the zebra print ones over the summer and they stayed on for atleast two weeks and then took FOREVER to get off when i finally wanted to. im going to try the leopard ones now 🙂

  47. 2Anchor says:

    I did the cheetah nails a couple months ago and LOVED them!! they are the cutest, and get the most compliments. Hope you love um!
