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 […]

Good thing Ipsy gave me a […]

You’ll find […]

Manicure Monday: Galaxy Nails

Manicure Monday: Galaxy Nails

Galaxy nails aren’t just for astronomy majors.  I’ve tried to recreate the look a few times and never been too happy with the result. They look absolutely beautiful, but look pretty complicated.  Every time I’ve tried in the past, they just look sort of … sloppy.  After many attempts and several different methods, I finally […]

Manicure Monday: Neutral Daisies

Manicure Monday: Neutral Daisies

Black and white is a huge trend for spring.  Adding in bright colors might look a bit tacky, but adding in a pop of nude can brighten the look without being overpowering.  After all, the black and white is the point of the trend! Pair these colors with some flowers and you’ve got a perfect […]
