I spent some much needed time cleaning my room this weekend. While folding and putting away clothes, I realized there is so much stuff I really just need to get out of my drawers. Everything that doesn’t fit can be donated for sure, but what do I do with my sorority, band, and university t-shirts that have sentimental value? I decided that a t-shirt quilt was the way to go (I’ve seen a few of my sorority sisters do this and the results have been pretty positive, so why not?). Knowing that I will have to send all my t-shirts away and never get to wear them again, I got nostalgic, and decided to wear one of my favorites one last time.
On top of that, I got some awesome nail mail on Friday (that I mentioned in my last post). One of the colors from KBShimmer, called Shore Thing, is pretty much a spot on match for the t-shirt that is my inspiration. I say it was destiny.

The Finished Product
I really just can’t get over how clean and classic this manicure is. I’ve always loved PhLL’s Gold on the Ceiling – it makes me feel like a rockstar and I try to wear it as an accent as often as possible (for this mani, I used 3 coats, but it can also be used as a topper because it is so sheer). My new KBShimmer polish, Shore Thing is perfect and creamy. Application was a breeze. These nails almost make me feel like a mermaid and it’s a nice reminder that summer’s not over just yet.
