  • Perfect 4th of July Nail Ideas!

    Independence Day is almost here, and we've been scouring the Internet for ways to show our pride for the day of fireworks, BBQ, and fun! While we've of course been picking out our favorite red, white, and blue dresses at www.rissyroos.com, we've also been looking for cute ways to accessorize. And, of course, one always go-to way to show some 4th of July love is on your nails! It's a simple, yet totally chic, way to wear red, white, and blue, without wearing it from head to toe. Below are our favorite patriotic nail looks that we've found on Pinterest...not only just in time for July 4th, but for #ManicureMonday, too!

    4th of july nail decals

    It doesn't get much more patriotic than literally turning your nails into the American Flag! If you're freaking out over the idea of trying to paint those perfect stars and stripes onto your nails, don't fret; just use nail art decals to get the look! They're simple to use and give you a professional look. You can get the decals used in the above photo for only $5 on Esty.com!

    firework fingertips

    Sparkly nails have been super on-trend lately, and is there really a better time to wear sparkles than on July 4th? Definitely not! That's why we love this "firework fingertips" nail art idea from PrettyPrudent.com. It's a perfect way to incorporate the sparkly nail trend into a 4th of July look!

    nautical nail art

     

    Looking for a nail idea to not only rock on July 4th, but all Summer long? We love the above red, white, and blue nail look for just that. It has a nautical theme to it, but the combination of colors also makes it perfect for Independence Day! We love the small heart over the stripes, but feel free to rock this look without the heart, too.

    However you decide to show your patriotism on the 4th of July, just make sure to have fun! If you've found any nail ideas that you love, feel free to write a comment below and share the link.

  • Perfect ways to wear Neon Nails!

    Last week, we posted an article about perfect neon dresses for prom. With the warmer weather here, a lot of us girls here at Rissy Roo's have been rocking neon nails this week - we just can't get neon off of our minds! So, with all the different nail ideas we've been sharing with each other this week, we wanted to share some of our favorites with you.

    Neon nails are especially perfect for those who love the neon trend, but are hesitant to wear it on bigger clothing pieces, such as your prom dress, shirt, or pants. Painting your nails a bright color lets you have some fun with the look without feeling like it's taking over your outfit.

    When it comes to wearing neon nails to prom, just make sure that your dress is a neutral color. If you wear neon nails with a neon dress, you'll start to look like a highlighter. For wearing neon nails every day, don't be afraid to try something fun and funky. Remember, neon is meant to stand out, and if you don't like it one week, you can always change it the next. Below are some of our favorite neon nail looks that we found on Pinterest. They offer great inspiration for every day looks, as well as perfect ideas to wear at special occasions, like prom! So, check out some of our favorite ways to wear neon nails below and get painting!

    neon green nails

    You can never go wrong with choosing one single bold, bright nail polish color to wear! To let your nails do the talkin' we especially love neon green (like shown above), neon orange, and neon yellow.

    nude and neon

    Pairing neon and nude together is such a great way to tone down how bright neon can be, while still rocking the look. We especially love the style above because of how the neon was used as an accent to make a triangular shape. Geometric shapes are so in right now, so this is a beyond trendy look to rock on your nails! This is a perfect idea to take to your nail salon and have them paint on for you for prom. Having the accenting color piece match your dress color will really complete your look!

    neon polka dots

    We just thought this look was too cute! We love the sparkly metallic paired with neon - they work so perfectly together! And, who doesn't love polka dots??

  • Valentine's Day Manicure

    While finding the perfect Valentine's Day dress is obviously the #1 priority when it comes to this holiday, having a fun V-Day manicure is another great way to celebrate, whether you'll be sitting at home or out for the night. There's always the classic red or pink nails, but we love going a little funky for this holiday! We're especially loving all of the heart nail art that we've been seeing on Pinterest, so we picked out our favorite tutorials for getting the look. Check them out below!

    The first two are more simple for those that aren't the best when it comes to applying nail polish, but want to get into the nail art fun. The first takes basic red nail polish and adds a gold heart to one nail. We absolutely love the single, big gold heart - it's so perfect for adding a hint of Valentine's Day to any outfit! You could add the gold heart to both hands, or just one. The second takes the trend of making one nail a different color and adds a little V-Day twist - it's too cute! Like the first, you could add the different color nail & hearts to both hands or just one.

    The first one gives a great step-by-step guide right in the photo. If you want more detailed information on how to complete the second look, clicking the photo will take you to Pinterest, where you can find a link to the creator's blog with a step-by-step guide in the description section.

    The last nail tutorial takes nail art (and how much Valentine's Day love you want to show off) to the next level. It uses a color blocked look, adding some hearts and dots to each nail. It gives a great step-by-step guide, so if you're not afraid to get a little artistic, try it out!

  • Fall Colors: Nail Polish That Will Get You Noticed

    The summer sun has set and fall is officially here, so that of course means it is time to re-work your go-to nail polish colors for the crisp, cool weather ahead. While the nude shades of the summer are still “in,” it is time to add some darker tones to the mix, as well. Scroll down for a look at the fall lacquer trends to try out before it turns to winter time!

     

    Darker shades like midnight blue, burgundy, and dark purple are great for showing off your feminine side with a hint of ‘badass.’ The neon pink and yellow colors of the summer were fun, but it’s time to turn a new leaf (pun intended) and embrace that darker, gothic part of your femininity with the cooler weather ahead. The darker shades are always classics to choose when dressing up for formal occasions, as they can add a subtle hint of color to your outfit.

    If you’re truly looking to get into the season, choose nail polish colors that match the changing of the autumnal leaves, like rusty oranges and reds and golden yellows. These hues will look particularly great with that little black dress.

    Still not ready to give up on summer? The neutral colors of summer-time will always be a go-to polish because of its ability to be paired with any outfit! If you are looking for a more discrete color, neutral hues are always a dependable choice.

    Green has been a popular color for a while now, with variations in the color changing according to the season. For Fall, military-inspired green is the hue of choice. While this may be a more difficult color to match with a formal outfit, if you have the right dress (military-related colors like black, silver, or gold would work best), it would be a great way to stand out from the crowd.

    What fall occasions do you have coming up? Which polish color will you choose? Do you have any tips of your own to offer up? Leave some love in the comment section!

  • Prom Tips: Plan a Timeline

    In order to make sure your special night is a spectacular one, just a little planning can go a long way. Taking care of the following items will ensure a perfect night. After all, once it gets to the big day, it should all be about fun.

    Three months in advance:
    Start your online search to familiarize yourself with the look you want to go for.
    • Order your dress and, if ordering online, be sure to get a shipping date and make sure to schedule for any alterations that may be needed.
    • While three months may seem like a long time, in terms of your prom dress, it's not! The most popular styles go quickly and since the perfect prom starts with the perfect prom dress be sure to snag that hot new style in your favorite color and size before another prom goer does.

    Two months out:
    • Begin looking through fashion magazines and search online for "prom hairstyles".
    • If you plan on going to a salon, schedule an appointment. Get something earlier in the afternoon, you don't want to be rushing around at the last minute. Continue reading
