 Hello Everyone!  I'm back with another nail polish inspired idea wohooo! This time, I used Wet N Wild Brand which is pretty affordable. The weather is not so bad but its just so cold outside again with that being said, I'm wishing for Spring right this moment, So, this is where my orange inspired nail polish kick in. I think the color can be blend with anything and its so Spring, (Chikka Buzz!) I was transferred to another department and been adjusting for like a week now, Yippee! So, my week is pretty much adjusting with my new work schedule. I'm learning as I go and pretty stoked about it. Can you tell I'm excited?( hehhe)
I can't remember when the last time I made bead bracelets, its been like a month now and I missed doing it. I should be back in making beads bracelets, or earrings pretty soon. I might make one right now (hahaha). What the best way to spend my day off right? Hanging out with my kids, painting nails, making beads bracelet or earrings, and pigging out Filipino food? Anyway, just giving you an nail color idea of the week. You might want to try it out. What do you think?
So far, this is my third nail polish inspired since I started this blog. If you want to check my other nail polish inspired creations just click HERE and HERE.  I hope your get inspired and join me with my Orange inspired nail polish today....wink:)

 Beauty Tips:
- Pick your favorite brand and color of nail polish.
- Make sure that your nails are clean and polish. I personally don't go beyond cleaning my nails just little trim and brush is fine with me.
Right Handed
- Start painting your RIGHT hand using your left hand. Let it dry first before applying the second coat of nail polish.
- Pain your LEFT hand using your right hand.  Let it dry first before applying the second coat of nail polish.
- If your LEFT handed, paint your left hand with your right hand and vice versa. I found this method so much easier and less mess..:)
- Let the nail polish completely dry.
- Enjoy your fresh painted nails anytime of the day!!:)

Till next time everyone!. I hope you get inspired painting your nails this week. See you in few days for more crafty moments, beads creations and much more...:)
