Manicure Monday: Monochrome Matte French

A French manicure is always classy. It’s hands down my favorite way to do my nails. I think it’s sleek, pretty, feminine, and elongates your nails like no other manicure can.

Manicure Monday: Pretty & Polished

As anyone that knows me knows, nail polish is my favorite hobby, my favorite love, and maybe even my biggest vice. I have more nail polish than I really know what to do with, but I can’t help myself from buying more. I love finding new colors that I’ve never seen before, but that seems […]

Manicure Monday: Inspired by Color

As much as I love looking for inspiration on Pinterest, I know that I’m limited in terms of nail art by what I can actually do and what tools I have at home.  It’s more important for me to have a simple-yet-neat design than an intricate-but-possibly-sloppy design.  Sometimes when I’m trying to figure out what […]
