Manicure Monday: Dreamcatcher

Manicure Monday: Dreamcatcher

Since last week’s Manicure Monday was dark and fierce, I wanted to go light and girly with this week’s.  I’ve always been impressed with dreamcatchers.  The premise of a dreamcatcher is that you hang it by your bed to catch any evil spirits or nightmares while you’re sleeping.  Whether they work or not is a […]

Manicure Monday: Shark Week

Manicure Monday: Shark Week

I have to admit, when I sat down to start this manicure, Shark Week was the last thing on my mind.  In fact, I really don’t even like Shark Week – and I definitely don’t like sharks.  My goal was to sit down and create a DIY chalkboard nail art tutorial – but after a conversation about […]

Manicure Monday: Neon & Glitter

Manicure Monday: Neon & Glitter

There’s bold manicures, and then there’s bold manicures.  When you combine Color Club’s neon and Essie’s glitter, you’re bound to get a pretty bold manicure look.  This week’s Manicure Monday features both fun glitter and bright neon.  This manicure is not for the faint of heart – it involves bold polishes, a lot of tape, […]

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! […]
