Nails: Facets, Colorblock, & Clouds

April 16, 2012

My nail art abilities have progressed since my last nails post. If you follow me on Instagram (you do, don’t you?) then you see me showin’ off my manis all the time. I’m in the habit of painting my nails at least once a week, usually twice, and sometimes thrice. And yes, it takes forever. But like all things meticulous, it soothes me.

My favorite nail blog is Nailside. I can’t get over her Abstract 80s nails, frequently repeat her Freehand Clouds look, and am still perfecting her Explosion Mani.

Do you have a favorite nail blog? Please share!

      Thank you, Kristin! I don’t have patience/ability to let my nails dry either – I use Seche Vite which dries nail polish super fast and makes nails super super shiny. Plus if you have a bunch of layers of polish, it somehow smoothes everything out. You can find it at Sally’s and I think even Target is carrying it now.
