The Perfect Nail Polish Neutrals



Hi gals! I'm super excited to be writing about nail polish, although it's a simple luxury it makes me feel absolutely beautiful. I can have sweats on and have my hair in a bun but with my nails done I feel so confident. 😉  Can anyone else relate? 

Today I wanted to dive in and share my favorite OPI colors along with some staple Dip Powder Colors so that when you're in a pinch for a good neutral you know exactly where to look. Although this is a part of my wedding series, it really does apply to any time in life! 

Lets start with my favorite OPI colors: 
(all these images were taken from Pinterest but every color shown I have personally worn)

Lets be Friends! (All time favorite OPI color)
This color is the perfect pink and white combo.


Alpine Snow (a classic all white color)


Be there in a Presecco (perfect for pairing with a ivory or a warm colored outfit)


Bubble Bath (a very soft bubble gum pink)


Dont Burst My Bubble (mostly white with a hint of pink mixed it, not opaque)


Funny Bunny (some would say it's the perfect bridal color, it's a soft white and not nearly as stark and harsh as Alpine Snow)


Tiramisu for Two (a true neutral that has a browner tint to it)



Now for the top three Nexgen/Dip Colors that are the perfect neutrals! 
(The names of the color are shown in the picture, I have not worth all these personally but did some research and found them for y'all)

This is a fan fav for my friend, Alana. I'm debating using it for the wedding! 




Color is S45, picture taken by Alexis Belbel.


Well friends, there is a round up of some fantastic neutrals! I hope this is helpful whether you're getting married or just wanting a fun nail color. 

Are you a shellac/gel gal or a dip/nexgen fan?

Thanks so much for reading!

All Things Wedding: David Gardner's Series Part 2













Hi friends! I know it's been a bit but to be honest life has been beyond hectic. It's November 1st and I cannot believe it. I will be a married 2 months from today! SAY WHAT?! Things are coming together and we are so excited. I'll be sharing some more wedding updates soon so stay tuned! 

With all the wedding fun in mind, I wanted to dive into my second post with David Gardner's and share another amazing aspect about their company. If you missed my first post, you can view it here.

Custom pieces are something David Gardner's is known for. Although they have so many pieces on hand to choose from they also give each and every one of their customers the opportunity to design a piece step by step with David if nothing in the store suits their fancy. That may be an engagement ring, a bracelet or a beautiful stone necklace, they do it all, literally. 😉 

If you remember from my last post, I shared a unique aspect about their store, the shop is in the center.  They designed it this way so that customers could see exactly what was going on. Not only that, but they now have a new way of showcasing custom pieces with large photographs behind and the piece in a beautiful individual box to really show it off. This gives customers the opportunity to see it in actual size and it blown up. This particular day that I was in the store, David was sharing the beautiful multi stone cross I have on above. That's something I love about him, he can sit and tell you the story behind each and every piece he has crafted and has such a heart behind it. He loves what he does and that is so evident through his actions and words. The customization process is what I believe makes David Gardner's so unique. 

David has designed pieces for the older generation as well as the younger and they do such a wonderful job of mixing both of them in. No matter your age there is something for you in the store! They don't just have one target market, they have a huge clientele base and that's what makes their company so very special. 

Through this process of working with David and Julia we've begun to develop a friendship that is so near and dear to my heart. They are incredible people y'all that just love others and serve them well! Below is a new video that they just launched showcasing their engagement customization process, it's so captivating, so take a minute to watch it. 

Lastly, for those that follow me on Instagram know that I have been talking up a storm about my event next Tuesday November 7th at the store with David. It will be from 5-7 and is an opportunity for you to try jewelry on, sip champagne and be entered to win a $500 gift card!! I hope you'll join and meet me if you haven't already!! You can RSVP here.

Enjoy this video and stay tuned for next month's post when I do our wedding band reveal! 😍



Thanks for reading friends!
