doing my nails, again

Not sure what’s gotten into me…doing my nails so much since usually it’s just a winter thing. So many fun Spring colors though, I have to keep going. Plus it’s been fun to try different things. The top left picture with the two tone was fun to do. I painted the nail in Essie Tart Deco the night before. The next morning I taped the nail (with Scotch tape) and painted Sally Hansen Mighty Mango on the top part. The only problem with this is that it chipped pretty quickly. I’m assuming because there was so much polish on my nails.

I’ve been experimenting with polka dots a lot. Side note: My friend Jen and I had a conversation about how fingernail pictures often are ridiculous. The person will be holding some really random object. Hence, the picture holding a loofah.

One of my new favorite colors is Essie Turquoise & Caicos. (That’s pictured in the bottom left.)

I recently got a new fast drying top coat by Seche Vite. It’s boss. It really is the ultimate fast dry top coat that I’ve ever used. Definitely pick some up if you can.

It’s been fun to do so many different colors and try different things. Plus it’s a whole lot cheaper than regular manicures or fake acrylic nails. I can’t decide if I’m fickle with nail color or just like too many colors to stick with one. Whenever I sit down to paint my nails I mull over my choices trying to select the best one for that week. Usually Josh helps me make the selection. Thank goodness he’s a good sport about it. Right now my nails are pink. This weekend, who knows…

    You knew I’d comment on this post, didn’t you? Your nails look great! How are you making the polka dots? I’m totally digging the white polish with funfetti sprinkles. Now I need to repaint my nails…

    Very cute! My favorite is the white with the polka dots. Are you using a brush or a toothpick or somthing? Question… What do you use for a remover? I really enjoy painting my nails, but the remover causes my skin to become stained and it REALLY dries the skin out around my nails. I love painting them but skip it due to this.
