Manicure Monday: Mad About Plaid

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? It’s pretty complicated – but that didn’t stop me from trying to tackle it.  If you’re patient enough (and […]

Manicure Monday: On the Dot

As I’m sure you all know by now, I can’t get enough of nail art.  I’m always looking for new ideas, techniques, and styles.  Admittedly, when there isn’t a holiday or big event going on, sometimes it can be hard to think of new, creative nail art ideas.  Enter Nail Art Society.

Manicure Monday: Faux Diamonds

Manicure Monday: Faux Diamonds

I am absolutely in love with the idea of gems, lace, and other things to bedazzle your manicure.  I’m not quite as in love with anything that will make my manicure 3D.  If my nails aren’t totally smooth, I find that my nails snag on my hair way too often.  So as much as I […]
