To me nails are more than just a great fashion accessory, they are little pieces of art that you get to show the world. They can be subtle or in your face. No matter what, they are uniquely you. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a secondary blog so you may see me as the other blog (I know. I know. I should not have been so creative!). I should have made them totally separate... Oh well, c'est la vie!

Happy Easter, Everyone!

If it’s your thing I hope you’re having a good Easter. And if not Happy Sunday! :D

Quick tutorial for yesterday’s nails!  i really hope the pictures explain it.

Colors: Sienna and Clara by Julep 

Should I do tutorials?  The last one I did was by request, but I decided to throw one out there just because.  Let me know what you guys think!

When are florals a bad idea?  I love Cath Kidston and used one of the patterns for inspiration.

Day trip to Cardiff, so this had to happen.

When will I become tired of Doctor Who nails? Never.  The limit does not exist.

This is where I cross my fingers and hope I didn’t write something awful on my nails because I can’t read Gallifreyan!

These were actually super neon, but it appears the camera isn’t a big fan of bright colors. There is a scotch tape manicure that is like this and I can’t remember where I’ve seen it… I did one like this before a long time ago… this time all freehand!

These were for the week after my mid term, we got to do a freestyle shoot, so I thought street art could be fun.  I used the distressed nail technique from Chalkboard Nails (http://www.chalkboardnails.com/2013/11/tutorial-distressed-nail-art-punkgrungy.html) for the base, and it was so fun and easy!

Thanks to my friend aiexachung/ezrasatlantic for being my model and being fantastically available last minute!

I was going to hold on to these and post over time, but I felt guilty for my absence so have some nail art spam! :D

Did some nails for my styling class midterm!  The teacher didn’t seem to be buying it at first but by the end I totally had him!  I haven’t really done fake nails so that was fun.  I could take all the time in the world! :D
