N.A.I.L- Tye Dye

Hello, I am so proud of this mani I just want to burst. First I am sporting a new nail shape that I did on my own ( so proud of myself)  almond nails ! It was super easy to do , all I did was cut and shape and wah-lah! On to my mani, I did a dry tie-dye on accent nails and then I did a gem border mani with tiny caviar beads in between on my other nails. This has to be to me the coolest thing I have done in a while.

Black, White, Pink border mani

Yay, so happy Dancing With the Stars is back on! The cast they have this year is great and I am having a hard time picking who I think is going to win. I am team Maks though he is so yummy!


I got the inspiration for this mani from one of the backgrounds on the video screen while one of the couples were dancing. I really wish my borders were not as thick, but I still like the way it turned out.

Nail-Art-A-Go-Go: Game Night

So many ideas so little time.  I was so tired last night that I did not want to put anything fancy together. I decided to do paint cards on my nails and us this nail polish I have called Shuffle the Deck.

N.A.I.L.- Border Manicure

Yes! I did it! This is the first time in a long time that I completed a whole challenge. I went with a non-traditional color for my border mani,  I have wanted to try the cartoon nail look for a while and thought if I did a normal color it would look too much like copying. Think of it as cartoon chocolate manicure.

Classy not Trashy

My job has decided recently that they want to make  tutorial videos to help customers that have issues with our website, instead of fixing the actual website. It was suggested that I be in the video.

I wanted to do keyboard nails, but it looked one dimensional and just looked like I had letters on my nails, I really wanted it to have more depth. I scratched that idea and went for something a little more classier. What is  more classy than black and white?  I noticed some black gems that I know I was not going to use much and decided to do a border mani with them. ( What is with me and the border mani’s lately?)

Inspired by Dancing with the Stars- Snooki

OMG I such a old lady for admitting this, but I love Dancing with the Stars. The music, the costumes, the emotion, and the hunky dancers ( ❤ Maxim).  I did post a long while back of nails inspired by Dancing with the Stars outfits. I finally got inspired by this season to do it again. This post was inspired by Nicole’s ( Snooki) outfit for this past Monday night. It was a brown leopard dress with teal or fringes on the shoulders and bottom of the dress. This is the best picture I could find
