31 Day Challenge: Polka Dots

When I decided to put myself through try the 31 day nail art challenge, I asked my friends to let me know if they come across any cool nail art designs.

31 Day Challenge: Metallic

For metallic nails day, I knew I wanted to do something with black and gold. I love those colors together and it looks so chic and classy together, doesn’t it? So for today’s mani, I decided to do an updated version of one of my more famous manis. This was when I just really started […]

31 Day Challenge: Black and White

I think the hardest black and white nail art has got to be something as seemingly simple as a black and white gradient. It’s tough to get the colors to blend seamlessly, especially when the colors are complete opposites. Here’s my sad looking attempt. Colors used: Essie Blanc and Essie Licorice. To do this, paint […]

I’ve actually never painted straight lines before. I know shameful, if you’re doing nail art, lines are probably […]

31 Day Challenge: Red

Easter Egg Nails

I’ve been so busy over the weekend getting packages ready (thank you, I hope you love them!) that I didn’t have time for an Easter inspired mani. I saw this picture posted by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. on her IG and I love it so hard I had to make my own version […]

Essie Resort 2014

I absolutely love the color scheme for Essie’s Resort 2014 collection. I mean what’s not to love about nude, coral and blues? They go so well together. Application for these were all pretty easy. Resort Fling is a coral peach creme that leans almost to a jelly finish. Shown is 3 coats without top coat. […]
