Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

For Halloween this year, my team at work went as hipster Disney princesses, and I was a hipster Little Mermaid. I went all out with my costume – long red wig, suspenders, boots, thick glasses, fork … I mean, dinglehopper – and all I needed was the perfect manicure to go with it! I decided […]

Manicure Monday: Silver Details

Manicure Monday: Silver Details

Manicures are a great way to express your feelings and personality without being in-your-face – unless, of course, you take a ton of photos and post all about your nails in a blog online, then maybe it’s in-your-face. Anyway, whether I’m feeling geeky, pretty, or punk, I can change my manicure as quickly as I […]

Manicure Monday: Acid Wash

Manicure Monday: Acid Wash

Sometimes the coolest manicures require little to no skill – and this manicure is one of them.  No precision, but all the impact.  Acid-washed jeans are kind of like those manicures.  They don’t take precision to create, but they definitely make a statement.  Acid-wash jeans exploded into the style scene in the late 80’s/early 90’s […]

Manicure Monday: Minnie Mouse

There’s something about Disney that’s so … magical.  I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t like Disney.  In fact, I don’t even know anyone who is neutral about Disney.  Everyone loves Disney! So why not make a Disney-themed manicure? This week’s manicure is a tribute to none other than Minnie Mouse! The bright red […]

Manicure Monday: Dreamcatcher

Manicure Monday: Dreamcatcher

Since last week’s Manicure Monday was dark and fierce, I wanted to go light and girly with this week’s.  I’ve always been impressed with dreamcatchers.  The premise of a dreamcatcher is that you hang it by your bed to catch any evil spirits or nightmares while you’re sleeping.  Whether they work or not is a […]
