Philosophy Sugar Sprinkles Funnel Cake + Cupcake Inspired ManicuresPHILOSOPHY SUGAR SPRINKLES FUNNEL CAKE

Philosophy Sugar Sprinkles Funnel Cake 3-in-1 ($16) is an adorable shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath which has a pretty shimmering pink color and a yummy baked cake scent. Its decorated with sprinkles and is simply happy faces in a bottle. While I am not a pink and pretty kind of girl – for some reason, I love to LOOK at things that are.Where to buy Aromochology Fragrances

DEBORAH LIPPMANN CANDY SHOPWhich brings me to my last and current manicure. On the left is the manicure inspired by Deborah Lippmann’s Candy Shop – which is a bubble gum pink with 2 sizes of rainbow glitter. The Get This Party Started set ($42 for 3 colors) from Nordstrom was very tempting, but since I really only wanted Candy Shop (the other colors are pretty too) I set out to do a more affordable DIY. I settled for a California Colors bright pink base and OPI for Sephora Spark-tacular Top Coat ($9.50). The finished look is a lot more vibrant that the photograph and received a remarkable amount of compliments.

On the right is my first ever Gelish manicure (or manicure in general that I can recall) which I had done by Jenny at Nailtek Nail Salon in the Town Center of Mililani. The overall process took roughly 30 minutes while there were a few sanitation issues (like the bowl of dirty tools soaking in the sink where clients wash their hands…a bit gross), the overall experience was a good one. I love the look of the manicure – but I’m not sure its worth $50 (including tip). This is not a service that I will do consistently, since I have an issue with the rather harsh removal process (you need to use pure acetone) – the same reason I don’t like artificial nails.
