Manicure Monday: More than Glitter

Manicure Monday: More than Glitter

Sprucing up a basic manicure is simple – just add a glittery accent nail! Whether it’s because I’m too lazy to decorate every nail or because I don’t like to over-complicate things, I’m a big fan of the accent nail. It helps to elevate your manicure without going overboard – and without spending hours to […]

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Admittedly, I’ve been getting pretty technical with my manicures lately. From chevron to tribal print, some of these manicures really require a steady hand.  With today’s manicure, that’s not the case.  While the look may have been inspired by the gorgeous paintings of Monet and Cézanne, you don’t need to be a famous artist to […]

Manicure Monday: Frenchie

Manicure Monday: Frenchie

My hands-down favorite manicure has always been the classic French.  It’s simple and elegant.  It always makes my nails look longer and prettier than they really are.  I think it’s a great manicure for almost any occasion.  I like to play up a French manicure any way I can, and for Manicure Monday this week, […]

Beauty, Simplified

You may be the kind of girl who isn’t big on wearing makeup because she thinks it takes too much time.  You could be the girl who would love to wear makeup regularly, but only wears it when she’s going out for a night on the town.  Maybe you’re the girl who knows everything there […]
