Manicure Monday: Gold Cross-Hatch

Manicure Monday: Gold Cross-Hatch

I’ve gotten inspiration for my Manicure Monday tutorials from my favorite clothes, from holidays, and even from just staring at my nail polish collection.  But I also get my inspiration from one of the most inspiring places of all – Pinterest! If you can browse Pinterest without getting inspired, you’re pretty tough.  I browse Pinterest […]

Manicure Monday: Ombre Graffiti

When it comes to creating nail art, there’s a lot of ways you can go about creating the look you want.  You can either invest in a professional manicure – or you can get creative.  Tape can help you get straight lines, a dotting tool (or even a bobbi pin or paper clip!) can create […]

Manicure Monday: Red, White & Blue

Manicure Monday: Red, White & Blue

For the 4th of July, I thought about trying to recreate the flag.  When it comes to the American flag, however, I really think that Betsy Ross did it best.  Creating tiny, intricate stars and perfectly balanced stripes is no easy task, especially if you’re downsizing it to your fingernail.  There are so many options […]

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! […]

June is a big month for seniors, both in college and high school.  For the high school seniors, you’re graduating and starting a new chapter in your life – college!

If you’re looking for a fun, impressive manicure, look no further.  Tribal print manicures can be pretty impressive, but also pretty hard to accomplish.  The amount of detail involved can prove tricky for even the most accomplished manicurist.  Have no fear – I’ve found a solution.  All you need for this manicure? Your favorite polish […]

Manicure Monday: Spring Designs

Manicure Monday: Spring Designs

My manicures are my form of art. Whether through colors or designs, manicures are how I express my style or current mood. I’m not impartial when it comes to my manicures, though – I definitely pick favorites. One of my absolute favorites was my galaxy manicure. On the other hand, there are manicures that aren’t […]

Summer is right around the corner, and I’m embracing it with open arms.  With the weather warming up, I wanted to celebrate in the best way I know how – a fun summer manicure! Combining bright colors typical of summer with black-and-white that’s so on-trend this season, I created this fun chevron-accented manicure! Want to […]

Manicure Monday: Haute Reverse French

Manicure Monday: Haute Reverse French

For all those I haven’t blabbed to, I’m currently spending the week in Paris! What better way to rock Manicure Monday in France than with a French manicure? You might be saying, Can this chick get over French manicures already? But I’m a huge fan of the French – I think it elongates your nails and […]

Manicure Monday: Ombre Nails

Manicure Monday: Ombre Nails

Ombre is huge right now, whether it’s on your hair, your dress, or your nails.  But it’s not an easy look to get. I’ve tried doing an ombre manicure in the past, and I can never seem to pick the right colors.  China Glaze makes it easy for you with their Ombre kits!  They have […]
