Tips on How to Remove Color STREET Glitter Nail Polish Easily

This post contains affiliate links.

So I am obsessed with Color STREET nails.  They are amazing and I love how they look, feel and how easy they are to put on and take off.  Because they are 100% nail polish, they can easily be removed with nail polish remover.  All of the nail polish strips come off with nail polish remover but I have found that the glitter ones are a little bit harder to get off (just like regular glitter nail polish).  Well I found out a way and a remover that makes it super easy to take it off the glitter polish (this could be used for any of the Color STREET nails!).

Bathroom Makeover with Timeless Touch Design



This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape®. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am obsessed with paint.  Nothing is safe in my house (and most things are not their original color).  I love how just a little bit of paint can transform a room or a piece of furniture.  It is really amazing the power of paint.  Well recently I have been redoing my house (like the whole house) and I have been painting every room, one at a time. All of my house was a beige color (walls and ceilings, everything!) and I am updating everything a painting all the walls a nice light gray and then all the ceilings white.  I am loving how it is turning out!  I have all of the common areas done so now I am turning my attention to the rooms.  I decided that our guest bathroom was in need of a makeover and I absolutely love the outcome of it!

DIY Fire Pit Sofa Bench with Step by Step Insructions


This post contains affiliate links.

One year ago we built a fire pit in our back yard (it only cost $60 to do and it's one of my favorite things we have every made!)  We have used it lot this past year and we just love it.  We have s'mores whenever we want and roast hot dogs on it and just sit around and chat.  It's so fun to wind down and chat with the kids (and unplug!).  Since we use it so much we decided that we could make a sofa bench for it.  I am so excited for the bench and cannot wait to use it all summer (and fall, winter and spring) long!  What I love about the design we did was that you can have 5 sections like we did or you can have 4 or 3 or 8, it's up to you! :)
