Manicure Monday: Au Naturale

Manicure Monday: Au Naturale

You might be wondering why my nails aren’t painted here. I put a lot of thought into this week’s Manicure Monday post, but not in the way you’d expect. I have spent countless hours planning the colors, patterns and techniques I use to create a Manicure Monday tutorial each week. But this week – and for […]

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 […]

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 […]

If you’re looking for a fun, impressive manicure, look no further.  Tribal print manicures can be pretty impressive, but also pretty hard to accomplish.  The amount of detail involved can prove tricky for even the most accomplished manicurist.  Have no fear – I’ve found a solution.  All you need for this manicure? Your favorite polish […]

Manicure Monday: Spring Designs

Manicure Monday: Spring Designs

My manicures are my form of art. Whether through colors or designs, manicures are how I express my style or current mood. I’m not impartial when it comes to my manicures, though – I definitely pick favorites. One of my absolute favorites was my galaxy manicure. On the other hand, there are manicures that aren’t […]
