Manicure Monday: Bold Ikat

I typically base my beauty look on what I’m wearing that day or where I’m planning on going.  Obviously a more natural look is appropriate for work, or I can spice it up if I’m going out.  This week, I was so inspired by what I was wearing that I created my manicure from it! […]

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.

Manicure Monday: Faux Claws

Manicure Monday: Faux Claws

The thing I might love most about nail polish is how versatile it is.  You can take the same colors and apply them in different ways to get completely different manicures.  On the other hand, you could do the exact same design in different colors and get a different effect!  For example, a classic French […]
