Colorful dotticure

Another springy manicure from May! I have no idea what polishes I used though, sorry! It was inspired by the logo of an event I was arranging, and I really love the different bright colors and variations of dot sizes. Related posts: Pearly nail Purple tree dotticure Furry nails!

No matter how many times you guess, you’ll never be able to guess what inspired this manicure. So I’ll just tell you! My toilet paper! *insert ROTFL smiley here* I was about to do my nails, and went to the bathroom right before, as you do, you don’t want to mess up your wet nails! […]

Kicks - Rain Drops swatch white rose nail art manicure

Kicks – Rain Drops

I was just feel like a light, shimmery, blue manicure. So I found my Kicks – Rain Drops, which might really be more an icy blue for winter, but it’s super pretty, and the shimmer really sparkles in the sunshine! The shimmer does not translate in these photos, but trust me, it’s gorgeous!   Then I […]


Kate Spade dots

Vintage pink

After all those “blingy” manicures I’ve had recently I wanted to do something muted and just very pretty.

On my index and thumb I did stripes using striping tape and OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls, […]
