Manicure Monday: NYFW

Manicure Monday: NYFW

We’re all in a current state of Fashion Week frenzy.  While fall fashions are exploding in stores, spring fashions are gracing the runways in New York, Milan, and Paris.  Naturally, I get most excited about new trends in beauty, but I was honestly a little disappointed by the nail art I’ve seen from Fashion Week. […]

Manicure Monday: Silver Details

Manicure Monday: Silver Details

Manicures are a great way to express your feelings and personality without being in-your-face – unless, of course, you take a ton of photos and post all about your nails in a blog online, then maybe it’s in-your-face. Anyway, whether I’m feeling geeky, pretty, or punk, I can change my manicure as quickly as I […]

Manicure Monday: Acid Wash

Manicure Monday: Acid Wash

Sometimes the coolest manicures require little to no skill – and this manicure is one of them.  No precision, but all the impact.  Acid-washed jeans are kind of like those manicures.  They don’t take precision to create, but they definitely make a statement.  Acid-wash jeans exploded into the style scene in the late 80’s/early 90’s […]

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 […]

Manicure Monday: Minnie Mouse

There’s something about Disney that’s so … magical.  I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t like Disney.  In fact, I don’t even know anyone who is neutral about Disney.  Everyone loves Disney! So why not make a Disney-themed manicure? This week’s manicure is a tribute to none other than Minnie Mouse! The bright red […]

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: Ombre Graffiti

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 […]

ncLA x Clueless: As If You Wouldn’t Wear This

The 90s are having a major fashion flashback moment — which makes me wonder about the old saying: if you wore it the first time around, you’re too old to revive the trend. If that is truly the case (although I’m young enough to swear it’s not a steadfast rule!) you can still get in […]
