1. Every time I cut my nails short, I end up painting them red. This is OPI’s Coca-Cola Red and it is amazing! New favorite for sure. #nails #nailpolish #rednails #opi

  3. Neon Pineapples

    After I did my strawberry nails, I wanted to come up with some creative ways to do more fruit nail art.  These popped into my head one day on the way to work, and they needed to happen.  They didn’t quite turn out how I’d envisioned them, but I think they are so fun!  Definitely some of my favorite summer nail art so far.

    I started out with a base of OPI Black Onyx.  Then I used Sally Hansen…

  4. Trying out Essie Sleek sticks today. Found this design at TJ Maxx for $3. They’re pretty, but I think they’re too stiff - I’ll be lucky if they stay put till the weekend.

    Black and White and Peach

    I’ve been kind of obsessed with polka dot nails lately, and did these simple black and white ones to go with a new polish I picked up the other day.  I really love graphic black and white with bright colors (see previous post here).  Perfect for summer!

    I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, OPI Black Onyx, and China Glaze V.

    Modcloth – Handsome Prints Dress

    I am a huge fan of Modcloth, so I was super excited when I got an email from them asking me to do some nail art inspired by one of their summer dresses!  It literally took me an entire week to decide which one to use – they have a ton of cute ones, but I finally decided on their Handsome Prints Dress.  I love that it incorporates a bunch of different patterns, and I thought the unique color combo…

    Happy 4th of July!

    Happy 4th of July everyone!  I’m super excited to have a four day weekend, so I thought I’d finally get around to doing some nail art.  These are pretty simple stars and stripes, but I gave them a little twist with the colors.

    I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue (the old/real one), and Essie Chubby Cheeks.  I kind of like the muted/faded effect it gives, while still…
