great tutorial on nail clean up

i highly recommend reading this article. this is the kind of information i've been looking for from a lot of the nail blogs out there. I guess they forget that some of us still need some tips on getting good nails. :)

This was my first time ever using a stamp. Coat Azure is the base coat, and the one i'm holding is what i used for the stamp.

blue + stamp + glitter!

Konad M57 stamped with OPI Nicole Light a candle.

Gold glitter + pink

inspired from this mani. loooove. i've been waiting forever to get some gold glitter polish to try this one.

Super bossanova lookalike?

here's a quick comparison to NYC's fashion ave fuchsia and Essie's Super Bossanova (pic from truthteller)

Coral + Grey + Stripes

you can't really go wrong with this combo. I messed one this up and re-did it too many times... not as lovely as it could be. but still fun to wear different colors on different nails. yay! inspired by katrina's mani.

across the universe

I need to recreate this look. why is across the universe so expensive!

Patchwork Mani from Chloe's Nails

Here's my attempt at the Patchwork mani from Chloe's Nails tutorial. I really should have taken my time on this one, making sure the nails were dry so i could push the tape down more securly! My colors are slightly different, but i still like it. :) I need some of that Seche Vite top coat. Seriously.

Konad stamp - first attempt!

first time ever using a konad stamp #57. Base color is Essie Coast azure.
