Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

Manicure Monday: Little Mermaid

For Halloween this year, my team at work went as hipster Disney princesses, and I was a hipster Little Mermaid. I went all out with my costume – long red wig, suspenders, boots, thick glasses, fork … I mean, dinglehopper – and all I needed was the perfect manicure to go with it! I decided […]

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.

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!

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 […]
