Nail It! Magazine: May & June 2014 Issue


   My third issue of Nail It! arrived early in May.  My one issue with this issue (ugh, didn't realize I was saying that until it came out) is that they changed their address labels.  I really like to peel the mailing label off of magazines when I get them because to me it looks nicer (and I feel more comfortable sharing the magazine with anyone), but this one stuck fast.  Hopefully it was just a fluke?  =(  So I quickly covered up my address labels with some scrap labels I had around...

   At least the cover look is basic enough that the only thing missing from the model's nautical nail art look is a blue pinky nail.  Not too bad.  I will say that my daughter really liked this cover.  She must have thought the girl was trying to play peek-a-boo with her.  At 8 months old it's her favorite game.

March 2014 Recap

Influenster Prizes!  ·  Craft Projects  ·  Spring, is that you?

   Oops, it's already April!  I don't know exactly how it happened, but I haven't been the only one to say this: March went by just as quickly as February.  (Was it that way for you, too?)  Perhaps because it had the same cold, dreary blur that the days of February had.  I don't really know.  I do know that I was very disappointed 1 week ago when I realized how close April was.  Alas, now it is already here.  Let's see how I did this month.

March Goals
  • Finish stocking that last bit of nail polish on Storenvy!  (Ugh, I haven't even touched my destash pile this month...)
  • Build a light box?  (Not done, but I found the boxes!)
  • Polish my nails more often.
  • Feature some Influenster J'adore Box content!
   Not too bad, I guess we could call that 50-60% completed?  I left my list of goals pretty bare because I expected to be busy, and indeed I was.

Nail It! Magazine: March & April 2014 Issue


   After taking my first issue of Nail It! for a test run, I bought a year's subscription and was very happy to find the next issue in my mailbox recently.  Yay for not missing any issues!  I'd like to continue to share my thoughts on the magazines I get, and if you're a reader too I'd love to hear what articles you enjoyed, too!

January 2014 Recap

Win a $100 Amazon Gift Card!  Princessly Polished is on Facebook!

   Is it any surprise that things didn't go as expected for me this month?  I ended going back to work 2 weeks earlier than we were planning on, and now I'm just starting to get into a new routine.  Again.  As I said a couple posts ago, I'm trying for blog updates on Wednesdays and Fridays for now!

January Checklist
  • Finish stocking my Storenvy shop
  • Put the finishing touches on, for real this time
  • Build a light box
   One of these things got checked off, but I already need to update my social media buttons again.  The media buttons I'm using currently seem a bit off with my new layout, anyway.  (Does this mean I should have left this item un-crossed off?)  As for my other projects, my Storenvy shop is close to being completely stocked (and I've already made sales!  So I'm not too upset about that - I'll have the rest of my destash polish listed soon.  The light box hasn't been built because I couldn't find a box that I was 100% happy with.  I refuse to buy a square box...  I know I will get one to recycle eventually.

Nail It! January/February 2014 Issue


   Hello reader!  I understand you like to read things, since you're a blog reader and all, so I thought you might like to read a review about something I read!  Confused yet?

   I picked up the January/February 2014 edition of Nail It! magazine while I was at the supermarket a couple weeks ago, curious to see what one of the only nail-focused 'zines was like.  Magazines aren't something that get a lot of serious reviewing, so I wanted to share my first look at this relatively new bimonthly magazine.  Want to see if Nail It! earned my subscription?
