Hey everyone,

I know I have not been blogging very much, I have been super busy with work, and I finally have 2 days off, however I am still blogging, I just made a new blog over at blogger, I use to use it back when I was teenager, and it was just a lot easier to make the blog how I wanted it without have to pay a ton of money to customize!

You can find me at this link  http://allthatglittersxx.blogspot.com/

I hope that all my amazing follwers will continue to follow me over there for the same kind of content and posts!

Thanks, Ashley

The knotted trend is back, this was popular in the 90’s, this time this trend is being worn in a more classic way, and taken on a lot more than just the classic knotted shirt. This trend is also being seen with long and short skirts, which is probably my new favorite way!

You may shy away from this trend if you don’t like to show any skin, however there are many ways you can wear this with little to no skin showing!

What do you think, glad this trend is back, or are you still unsure?

Want to know why summer is one of my favorite seasons?

Besides the warmer weather, swimming pools, beach days, and all that other good stuff, summer is my favorite season because….

COLOR: Summer is the one season that gives you an excuse to go crazy with color!

With summer just about official being here I thought I would share this simple colorful nail tutorial!

STEP 1: Start with a bright base

With any nail tutorial, first things first, always apply a base, it will make the color go on smoothly, followed by a layer or two of your favorite neon shade you own. I used a creamy bright orange from Revlon called Tangerine, perfect for this summer!

Wait about 10 minuets until it’s completly dry before moving on to the next step!

STEP 2: Add your stripes

You can add any type of stripes you want, I choose a simple thin stripe not quite in the middle of my nail, more to the outter right side of each nail! (The color I used for my stripe in Essie’s Mod Square) This is what you need a somewhat steady hand for, as long as you wipe most of the excess nail polish off the brush before applying to your nail you should be just fine!

If you just never have any luck with doing designs on nails, you can always take a piece of tape and cover the part of your nail you don’t want the stripe to be a paint the part uncovered by the tape!

Step 3: Add your top coat! 

I hope you enjoyed this nail tutorial, you can make this your own, but using any color, and then adding a stripe to each nail with another color!

Link your nail tutorail post in the comments below I would love to see them!

For so long my hair has been a long nasty mess, I finally got some color, and a whole lotta hair cut off, well not a whole lotta, but it;s a about to my shoulders, so before I got it cut, I would just throw some hair to side and stick a bobby pin in it. Now that I got my hair cut I have only been leaving it down and straight!

There are so many hairstyles out right now, so I thought I would show you some of my favorites that I want to try on my hair, I just don’t like spending a lot of time in the morning, and I think these are perfect!

Have any more hairstyles? What are your favorites?

Metallics are so back in for summer, be sure to check out the new Essie Mirror Metallics Collection coming soon to stores! I think my favorites will be “penny talk”, which is described as an incandescent copper, but I feel like it’s more of rose gold, which I love! I also love “Blue Rhapsody”, this is described as a heavy metal blue, it’s more of a silver blue but I love it!

Are you excited for this collection as much as I am? I love metallic colors, they are just as much fun as all the bright colors that are in for the season!
