Leo’s big heart, warm spirit, and love of laughter make them a joy to be around, and when Leo loves you it’s like the Sun has never shone brighter. Leo is a Fire sign that blazes through life, eager for action and driven by a desire to love and be loved.

Gemini – Zodiac Inspired Nails!

May 19th, 2017

Ruled by Mercury, Geminis exhibit a delicious brand of mercurial energy. They are quick-thinking, quick-witted and fast on their feet, much like the messenger god of Roman mythology that rules their sign. Geminis are both curious and clever, which is why they are such a hit at cocktail parties. Although they talk a great game, they also love to listen and learn. With any kind of luck, the Twins will find themselves in interesting company, because if they don’t, they are likely to get bored and start fidgeting. Any social setting is a good one for a Gemini, however, since these folks are charming, congenial and love to share themselves with their friends. While their effusiveness may be misconstrued as scheming by some, Geminis generally have their hearts in the right place. It’s that ample energy which can also paint them as scatterbrained and unfocused, but behind all that zipping around, the Twins are busily filing all that good data away. We paired these bright, sunny and fun colors to this fantastic sign, focusing on Yellows, Pinks, Golds and Oranges!

Pisces – Zodiac Inspired Nails

February 24th, 2017

We’re here welcoming the ever beautiful, ever emotional Pisces! The sign of the artist. Pisces are very friendly, so they often find themselves in a company of very different people. Pisces is a Water sign and as such, this zodiac sign is characterized by empathy and expressed emotional capacity. Their ruling planet is Neptune, so Pisces are more intuitive than others and have an artistic talent.

Check out our Pisces inspired Pinterest Board!:

Pisces does not take well to a position of leadership or high business person, they are too sensitive and lacking in self-discipline and lacking self-confidence for a positions such as that. What they are good at is is writing, acting, poetry, or being musicians. Pisces are excellent at anything that tugs at the heart strings and mystical/spiritual. They are extremely creative and can use their skills of creativity and their understanding of people to inspire others. Unfortunately, most Pisces take the easy way out in life and never attain the degree of fame that they possibly could, they have to stop self-doubting themselves because they are capable of being good role models and leaders to others, people do look up to them.

Zodiac Pairings:

Polish Pro : Blue Martini, Spring Showers, Blanca, Sedona’s Got a Big Ol’ Butte, Shimmering Sand, Tangerine Dream

Secrets Removable Gels : Open Minded, Bite Your Tongue, Brush on White, It’s a Mystery
