Paint All The Nails Presents Pastel Geometric

Hello lovelies! Today is my favorite day of the month where I get to participate in the Paint All The Nails link-up! This month's theme is "pastel geometric". I love geometric nails, but I always have the hardest time photographing pastel nail art. My solution this time was a lot of contrasting black lines and that seemed to do the trick!

March 2016 Magic 8 Box: 80's Love Songs

I've been wanting to share this post for the last couple of weeks but I've had trouble finishing it because I have been so sleep deprived. I feel half brain dead right now so please forgive me for any missteaks. First things first, I want to let you know this box is no longer available. Sorry! But since I went to the effort of purchasing the box and trying them all out, I wanted to show you the polishes and let you know what I thought of them.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Spring

Hello ladies! Who is excited about Easter weekend? It's one of my favorite holidays so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm joining in today with another 40 Great Nail Art Ideas link-up and I love today's theme. I could  have been a little more outside the box with the Spring prompt, but why pass up a perfect opportunity to do a floral mani?

Mommy/Daughter Twinsie Nails

Hello everyone! I have something a little different to show you today. My four year old daughter is finally kicking the habit of biting her nails, thanks to some product made for that purpose. I don't know who's more happy about this, she or I. So recently I painted her nails to celebrate her progress. She was so pleased with the final look and asked me if I would paint mine the same. I couldn't refuse her request, and these are our resulting mommy/daughter twinsie nails!

Gold Is A Leprechaun's Best Friend

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Who's doing something fun to celebrate? We don't celebrate the holiday in our home, so just a regular ol' boring day for us. But that doesn't mean my nails have to be boring!

Feeling Royal With ALIQUID Lacquer Can't Fight This Feeling

Hello my beauties! I have some super simple nail art for you today. This mani is what I would call a lot of bang for your buck! It is absolutely stunning, if I do say so myself. I totally felt like a queen wearing these nails.

Hehe 076 Stamping Plate Review

Hey everyone! As promised I have another Hehe stamping plate to review for you. Like the 075 plate I reviewed  a few weeks ago, this is from the Plaids and Floral collection. This plate has some beautiful animal print images on it, and that's what I chose to show off for you today.

40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Food

Hello lovelies! It's been a couple of weeks since I've done the GNAI challenge so i thought it was time to jump back in. I had this idea to do a strawberry design with the dry marble technique, and today's food prompt gave me the perfect opportunity!

Delicate Dry Marble With Pahlish

Hey everyone! I am on a little dry marble/needle drag/decal kick right now. What do you guys call this technique?? I can't make up my mind. Whatever you want to call it, I love it.

Double Stamped Purple Roses

Hey all! I have some more stamped nail art for you today. I am slightly obsessed with stamping at the moment. You may think this design looks a little familiar because I used the same stamping image in this mani for Valentine's Day. A couple weeks ago my mom invited me to see the ballet "Romeo and Juliet" with her and I wanted to do some romantic nails for the occasion. I loved this rose image so much that I wanted to use it for a second time that week.

Hehe 040 Stamping Plate Review

Hey everyone! I have another Hehe stamping plate review for you! This post is a long time coming because I did the manis weeks ago. Then I did my Chinese New Year nails and I felt they looked a little similar with the color scheme, so I kept this one in my pocket a little longer.

Flower-ish Needle-Drag Marble

Hey everyone! Enjoying your Saturday? I have zero plans for the weekend. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I have some fairly simple, yet complicated looking nail art for you today. I created these needle-drag marble nail decals on my UberMat a couple nights ago. I forgot about them (oops), then remembered again and put them on my nails.

Blue Cirque Reciprocal Gradient

Hello everyone! Today I have some quick nail art for you. For this mani I had the idea in mind to do a vertical reciprocal gradient using  X pattern stencils. I tried it on my other hand first and realized you couldn't really tell what was going on at all. So I tried a different approach, clipping off some of the Xs. I'm still not sure if it would have been better to remove some of the vinyl from the sides instead of the top. I guess I should have done more experimenting first. But the way that I went with made a big enough difference that I liked how it turned out. I hope you do too!

Go Home Spring, You Are Drunk

Hello my lovelies! Who else is so excited that Srping is almost here? Oh, oops. Did you see that? That's right, in case you didn't notice it (I'm talking to you men), there is a typo. Not just here in this paragraph, but on my nails!
