  2. Nordic Plaid

    I’ve been such a bad blogger lately – it’s been almost a month since my last post!  Grad school has been kicking my ass, and every time I’ve actually had time to do nail art, I’ve just been completely unmotivated.  But I’m back with a design using colors from OPI’s Nordic Collection for Fall 2014.  It’s not as clean as I would have liked (I definitely think I’m out of practice), but I think it…

  4. Neverwhere

    Finally another book-inspired post!  I just finished reading my first Neil Gaiman book, Neverwhere, and it was incredible!  Definitely a unique book.  Kind of like a modern Alice in Wonderland.  So, naturally, I had to do some Neverwhere nail art.

  8. Watermelon

    Since watermelon nails in the summer are pretty much obligatory, I thought I’d give them a shot.  I’ve really been enjoying my other fruit nails (here and here), so I thought these would be really nice.  I don’t usually do colored tips, but with these colors, I ended up really liking it.

    I used Essie Ruffles and Feathers and OPI Girls Love Ponies, with black and white polishes from Sinful Colors.
