Bold, daring nail colors

Spice Up Your Life With These 7 bold Nail Colors

You know what they say, your comfort zone will kill you.


Forget the summer/winter color rule, don't be afraid to rock a daring color at any time of the year! Plus, I'm too scared to be bold with my hair so I guess my nails are the next best thing?

I recently decided to venture outside of my comfort zone and try a bright yellow. Besides the large number of compliments I received, at least four people told me I inspired them to try a bright yellow too!

These colors are sure to draw the same response.

1. Mustard


This is FOR SURE the color of the summer. From Givenchy to Forever 21, designers everywhere are adding this color in some way to their latest collections. Not to mention all the cool kids are wearing it, so what are you waiting for?

2. Teal


This reminds me of Tiffany's box. And since this #collegegirl lifestyle doesn't really allow me to afford anything from Tiffany's right now, this nail color may be the closest I get.

3. Violet


Royalty. Power. It's all synonymous with the color purple. Channel your inner queen and sport this deep purple with confidence!

4. Pink

When in doubt, pink it out. Pink is always my go-to color when I'm just not sure what I'm in the mood for. From a pale pink to a bold fuchsia, a good pink will never let you down.

5. Army Green


I don't know if army green is the legitimate name for this color but it's fine, you get the point. Green can really be a hit or miss depending on the shade, but this army(?) green is always a hit if you ask me.

6. Royal Blue


Blue is my favorite color. I will wear it in any shade on any day. Although royal blue, isn't my top 3 fav shades, I have to admit it's growing on me. Everything about this color just screams badass. I think I just found my next color to try.

7. Orange


Orange is the new black, especially in the summer. Nothing says boldly quite like a neon orange. Plus, I go to Syracuse, did you really think I would dare to leave orange off the list?

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
