I have a love-hate relationship with painting my nails. I love when they're done but get so discouraged when they chip 5 hours later. Gel nails were obviously the solution but the polish is a pretty penny and you pretty much have to build your collection from scratch. One of my best friends had tons of gel polish, a legit LED lamp and an amazing steady hand for painting nails but now that I am 2,000+ miles away I needed to figure something else out.
I recently got a GelTouch Mini because it was a cheap and easy way to get the gel effect. Check out how easy it is and why its so great!!

First start with a fresh prepped hand. Push back any Remove any nail polish, shape your nails, push back/remove cuticles, moisturize, etc)
Paint your nails normally with a color of your choosing. Literally any color. That amazing color you got at Forever 21 for like $2 on clearance? Yup that one will work too! For better results do a second coat as well.
Now comes the fun part. Take your GelTouch gel polish and apply a coat to the top. Make sure you get the top of your nails as well to create a strong seal. 
Then take your little square LED light, open the legs and plug the USB into anything. I usually watch movies on my laptop while I do my nails so I just plug it there. The Mini is designed for when you're on the go so it's really only meant for one or two nails at a time. 
Cure for 60 seconds and you're done!

My absolute favorite thing about GelTouch is that it turns any normal polish into gel that lasts!!

I love cardigans and I love bodysuits. I have long legs and a short torso so whenever I can make my torso appear longer, I'm game! Both bodysuits and cardigans help with that! 

Outfit details below:)
First let's start with the cardi. Go long here! Pick a color that you know you could pair with other items in your closet. If you're not a pink girl then get a different color. Just get something you love!

Here are some similar styles:
I'm obsessed with bodysuits because I love the tucked in look. You never have to think twice about your shirt bunching or coming untucked. It's pretty great!

Here are some similar styles:

Pair the outfit with your favorite pair of jeans and some cute booties and you are golden!

Business casual.
That is probably my favorite type of dress code. I am in meetings all the time so I want to make sure I always look presentable. I feel my best and therefore perform my best. Business casual is also pretty forgiving! One simple piece can really make it. Blazers are perfect examples. Add a blazer to a casual look and all of a sudden you have a business casual look! But as much as I love blazers, today we're highlighting another statement piece - neck tie blouses! Bonus points for floral because who doesn't love floral in the winter?!
Here are some similar styles to my floral top:

Aaaand for the pants:

Last but not least, some fun booties:

Boom! Business casual!
What's your favorite business casual look?
