Manicure Monday: Mad About Plaid

There’s nail art, and then there’s nail art. It can be as simple or as complex as you make it.  You can do a simple French manicure or you can create a complicated design.  This week’s manicure?

Manicure Monday: Valentine’s Day Heart

When I sat down to do my Valentine’s Day-themed Manicure Monday, I had big ideas to do a different pattern on every nail.  Glitter, hearts, polka dots, flowers, matte polish, everything.
