1. Space Nails – I ALWAYS love space/sky/nebular nails.space nails

You may have seen both of these polishes in my Top Ten Favorite Summer Polishes, and let me tell you, I REALLY love them. For this look I painted my nails with Essie’s A Splash of Grenadine, taped off a triangle with good ole scotch tape, and painted Orly’s Rage in the triangle. Easy as pie!
I can’t get enough of this pink color. Pink is a hard color for me to wear. Baby pink makes my skin look dirty and hot pink makes my skin look sallow. I think this cool toned medium pink is my perfect pink!

pineapple nailsI’m back (said in my Veronica Mars voice)! What better way to welcome the summer weather than a little tropical flare?! About a week ago I was watching a youtube video on fruit nail art and decided to try a pineapple nail. It’s not the most beautiful pineapple, but I really like it!pineapple nails 2Happy Cinco De Mayo!

geo nailsNailed it on a Wednesday? Crazy! Actually, I had a minor meltdown Sunday afternoon while I was trying to take blog photos because I don’t really know how to use my camera and it takes forever for me to change the settings. I ended up taking these photos yesterday during my lunch break.geo nails 2This design was super easy. All I used were 3 nails polishes and scotch tape!

Nailed It!

galaxy 2In honor of Star Wars Day this past Saturday I made galaxy-far-far-away-nails! I had been wanting to try galaxy (or nebula or milky way or whatever) nails for a while now, but I thought it would be really complicated. Guess what… it wasn’t complicated at all!galaxy nailsI’m way into these nails. They may even stay on my fingers for more than a couple days before I decide on something else. Hmm, we’ll see…
