DIY Ombre Summer Night Sky Pedicure with Julep

Hello friends! Here’s an ombre nail art idea for you today to try out the next time you’re painting your nails.

DIY Gold-Speckled Easter Egg Nails

Since Easter is coming up soon, I was collecting some images of inspiring egg decoration. I landed upon this, and began thinking…what about doing this to your nails? So I did. And it turned out amaaaaaazing. (Who doesn’t love chic gold leaf, right??!) Here’s how to do it too: You Need:

DIY Metallic-Tipped Nail Art: How to Extend the Life Of Any Manicure 2

When nail polish starts chipping there are only a few options for you: take it all off, swipe another coat of same-colored polish on to try to hide it, or try a contrasting color layered over top.

I’ve been on the search for a true-to-form holographic nail polish like a reincarnation straight out of the 80’s… just like those shiny Rainbow Brite stickers or a heavy-duty Trapper Keeper and its accompanying folders.  (Are any other children of the 80’s with me on this??!) But most nail polishes straight out of the bottle […]

Elegantly Understated Half-Moon Manicure: Greige Neutrals

Recently I’ve been playing around with the half-moon manicure.  Though I’ve tried it free-hand (with an uber-steady hand) before with middling results, I found that using those sticker color dots from the office supply store work just perfectly for this purpose.  (I’m sure they’re useful for other things besides fancy nail art manicures…but I haven’t […]
