Beauty Break | Brilliant Shine

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

As a gal on the go, I don't always have time to indulge in weekly nail salon visits so I've teamed up with Sally Hansen to give myself a DIY shiny nails mani featuring Miracle Gel while on a Friday afternoon coffee break. The nude pink shade perfectly complemented my Friday night playtime outfit, a Forever21 pink trench and H&M black lace dress.

I love working in coffee shops. With the right combination of gunpowder green tea and Beast Mode playlists, I can usually work for hours without blinking or moving. To instill a sense of balance and to wave off carpal tunnel, I brought my Sally Hansen shiny nails kit to Espresso Cielo a few Fridays ago. Using a combination of Sally Hansen tools, nail treatments, and miracle gel polishes (a two-step process to achieving gel nails without a heating lamp), my twenty minute DIY mani brightened up my nails to a shade of brilliant pink shine for a fun Friday night of craft cocktails and small bites at BrilliantShine in Santa Monica.
