Graduation Nail Art

Guess what?! I'm graduating from college on saturday! Woohoo! Finally! I'm have a new outfit for every night of the weekend and needed the perfect nails to go with them! I decided on a simple purple and white polka dot design to complement my many dresses. For the white I used "Alpine Snow" by OPI and the purple is "A Grape Fit" by OPI. Next week I will be embarking on a cross country road trip so we'll see where my nails my take me during the trip! Enjoy!

Princess Nail Art

First off I want to start this post with a "IM DONE WITH COLLEGE!!!!" shout out. Four years finally over, now all I have to do is attend graduation next week. After graduation I will be doing a cross country road trip with my Boyfriend which I'm super excited about and I'm moving back to LA to start graduate school in the fall. Yipee!

This week's nails I wanted to do some free style nail art. I was inspired by the funky, gorgeous royal blue polish "Butter Please" by Essie to do a fun Basquita-esk design. Let me know what y'all think!

Lace Nail Art

This week I felt a little lazy about my nail art so I decided to go with some stick ons by Sally Hanson! Sticks ons are way to pricey in my opinion, but they are just so easy to do! I love not having to worry about ruining them after I put them in because they don't need to dry! I have only tried using Sally Hanson and Maybelline stick ons and Sally Hanson was much much better. What are your favorite stick on brands? Let me know!

Wedding Nail Art

This past weekend I did my mom's nails for my art exhibition. I just added a little accent to each of her ring fingers, but when I took the pictures with her diamond ring I immediately thought this would be such a great design for a bride or bridesmaid! Even for an engagement party.

For the base coat I used "Tickle Me France-y" by OPI. For the roses I used "Peachy" by Revlon and "Peas and Qs" by Nicole by OPI. For the details on the roses I used "Draw in Pink" and "Green Skecth" by Milani's Nail Art collection.

Sun Flower Nail Art

Finally spring is here on the East Coast! My Senior Thesis Art Exhibition is opening tomorrow and I'm super excited for it. I'm wearing a cute white summery dress so I decided to go with a bright and fun nail design for the occasion.

For the base coat I used a bright yellow orange polish by FACE. For the base coat on my index and middle finger I used "Tickle my France-y" by OPI. For the sunflower petals I used "Electric" by Revlon and for the middle of the flower I used a beautiful brown polish by Illamasqua. Finally for the details I used "Sassy Brassy" and "Glitzy Jam" by Milani. Enjoy!
