Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Admittedly, I’ve been getting pretty technical with my manicures lately. From chevron to tribal print, some of these manicures really require a steady hand.  With today’s manicure, that’s not the case.  While the look may have been inspired by the gorgeous paintings of Monet and Cézanne, you don’t need to be a famous artist to […]

Manicure Monday: Tribal Accents

Manicure Monday: Tribal Accents

When it comes to nail art, tribal accents look like possibly one of the most complicated designs. I’ve always been drawn to the design, but with such small details, I’ve never been brave enough to try it. And that is what today’s Manicure Monday is all about – making the tribal manicure easy.

Minute Manicure Removal

I change my nail polish as often as I change my clothes. Okay – not that often, but I still do my nails more often than the average person.  When it comes to taking my polish off, the cotton balls can add up.  Until I learned a neat little trick to use only ONE cotton ball […]

Manicure Monday: Chevron Stripes

Manicure Monday: Chevron Stripes

I look for inspiration for my Manicure Monday designs in a lot of places. Sometimes I think about what events I’ll be attending that week, sometimes I look at what new techniques I’d like to try, and sometimes I just stare at my nail polish collection and hope that something comes to me. Today’s Manicure […]
