About Me

My name is Randi and I am a college Senior. I'm studying in the engineering field and will be graduating in December in 2014! I created a blog to write about my addiction to nail polish ( and all that it involves) and also to document and share my journey to becoming healthy!

GoVoxBox from Influenster

Hello Lovelies! 

I am VERY excited to be sharing my first fitness post with you all under my new name! I was so excited to talk about this GoVoxBox! Everything arrived just in time and at the perfect moment for me to get started with my transformation! 

I first want to talk about that Aqua Spa. I am BEYOND in love with this lotion! I am so very picky about lotions because I usually get very disgusted when things are between my fingers and then it feels greesey and I just don't like it, but this lotion is so unlike anything I've tried! It's not greesey or leaves a sticky feeling between my fingers! The smell is amazing too! It's a mixture of Lavendar and Camomeille, so it's really a relaxing smell! Another good thing about this lotion is that it's perfect for sunburns/peeling skin!  My boyfriend recently had an AWFUL sunburn because he wouldn't listen to me and out sun screen on... SOO of course I had to play doctor until he got better! :) I put this lotion on him once a day and it's cut the amount of peeling he had a tremendous amount! He barely had any peeling and it was amazing! :) 

Next I would like to talk about the PROFOOT Inc. Orthopedic Inserts! I'm not sure what I did to get those but boy-oh-boy did I need them! I have very flat feet so I am constantly in pain and my feet on sore almost every second of every day! I suffer from Plantar Fasciitius which is a condition of inflammation of the thick tissue that connects the heel of the ball of the foot! If you think it sounds painful, it is! Custom Orthodics are very expensive and I quite frankly don't have the money for them so I'm constantly buying insole for my shoes. So this was truly a blessing to receive them in my GoVoxBox! 

With the summer months fast approaching that means one thing- FLIP FLOP SEASON <3 I am constantly wearing flip flops but after long winter months, like most people, my heels get really cracked! Cue PROFOOT Inc. Pedi-Rock. It is gently enough that it doesn't completely rip my feet apart, but also rough enough that it really makes a difference after my usual foot soak! It has my heels feeling nice and smooth after a few weeks of using it! 

Next in line is the Next Step Blender and Protein samples! The blender is perfect because it can keep one at home and keep this one at work, along with the protein samples! The protein samples came in 3 different flavors: Swiss Chocolate, French Vanilla, and Fresh Berry

My surprisingly favorite little snack from Blue Diamond! Blueberry covered Almonds- WHAT! I absolutely LOVED these things and I totally plan on buying more of these to keep at my desk as a healthy snack when I get a little hungry before lunch time at work! They sounded like such a crazy combination I almost didn't even try them! Lol They taste almost like a blueberry sundae with an after taste of almond! Spectacular! 

And who doesn't love getting free tampons! I won't go into great detail on those but they're awesome! :) 

As always, much love, 

As times change so do we....

Hello Lovelies! 

I'd like to take a moment and reflect where this blog was and where it's heading! Over the past month I have really changed my lifestyle around. I started working out 5 times a week, cut out fast food and almost all soda. I say almost because I NEED my Ginger Ale when I'm sick! It's my only vice! :) 

Anyways, this blog has been strictly nails and polish swatches BUT that is all going to change. I'm still going to continue to do nail post but I'm also going to incorporate things like my workouts, my favorite recipes and things I've accomplished! :)

 So my blog name will be changing! Drum roll please......... My new blog name will be..... Fit&Polished! I think this really encompasses where my life is heading and I am super excited about it! I'm really looking forward to this change and I hope you all will continue to support me! 

As always, much love,

Toes goes!

Soo I don't really have a lot of pictures for this post (but I'll add more later)! I was kind of bored, had an awful day so I wasn't about to leave my house! I received some bad news that two people I went to high school passed away in two unrelated and unfortunate accidents! Today also makes 4 years that I have been out of high school and 4 years since another person I graduated with father pasted away. SO none-the-less, I'm kind of starting to HATE you June 8th! 

Back to the pedi! I wanted something fun, cheerful and summer-y. I'm not totally in love with crazy tribal print but the non-obnoxious ones are really cute so I slapped some on my toes! Honestly figuring out my color combination took the longest... cue boyfriend... I had it narrowed down and he chose the final colors! 

This design was super easy! And the best part, I could be messy and it would still look okay! It was literally sooo simple! All you need to complete this is 3 colors and a striping brush! I'd also suggest having some nail polish remover and some paper towel! 

Step 1: Apply some base coat. I used Zoya Anchor.

Step 2: Appy base color. For this I used 2 coas of Zoya Snow White with appropriate dry time between layers!

Step 3: Apply middle color with a random (or planed) lines to cover the nail from side wall to side wall! I used Color Club Warhol!

Step 4: Apply top color repeating the same lines technique as used in Step 3! I choose to use Color Club Mrs. Robinson! 

Step 5: Apply Top Coat! I used Glisten&Glow HK Girl quick drying top coat! 

I hope you enjoy and if you have any questions feel free to ask! :) 

As always, much love,
