Fun Nail Friday!

Happy Friday!

Today I end a chapter of my life that started my career and move onto something bigger and better–and I couldn’t be more excited (and scared)! So I thought I’d paint something super cute and cheerful so my new coworkers know how cool I am! (wishful thinking)

What do you think? Am I gonna fit in?

Have a great weekend! ❤



Fun Nail Friday!


I’m back from my girls’ birthday-wine-summer trip to Solvang (hence, no nail last week) with a roaring nail look. Okay, so giraffes don’t ROAR. What sound do they make?

I think every group of girlfriends needs a nice, hearty weekend in beautiful wine country. Some highlights:

Catching our breath @ the Los Olivos cafe. 8 wine tastings a day will do that to you




Fun Nail Friday!

Hey, August!

Wow, I can’t explain just why yet, but it’s only a hair into August and it’s already like, the best month ever. Sorry Buzzfeed, but this list is just not true! 

My birthday’s on Sunday and I’m celebrating with some birthday nails! Yeah!!!

Happy birthday, August babies!



Fun Nail Friday!

Hooray! It’s the last Friday of July. On to better things, such as, the entire month of August! My birthday month!

I thought these cartoon-ey matte nails would be a different take on the neon color thing everyone’s rockin’ this summer. I used Essie’s “Matte About You” to achieve the look. Great results, but on the downside, these chip like a mutha!

My mani, literally 6.5 seconds before it chipped.

Cool pastels and polka dots- this is what summer manis are all about!

Fun Nail Friday!

I can’t say it enough: T.G.I.F.

Some weeks I feel like I can bang out a really cool nail design, and some weeks I have trouble even painting a nail nicely. What’s up with that? This is one of those weeks. I couldn’t decide on a coherent theme for my nails, so I threw together things I love: Chevrons, abstract rosettes, pink, and glitter. Enjoy!


Fun Nail Friday!

This week’s theme was so easy…because ‘MERICA!!!!!

This makes me smile. And so do L’s Bollywood nails! Great, now I’m craving samosas and have the urge to dance around my office–not that it’s ever a bad thing!

Looks like it’s another movie themed nail week with the release of Pixar’s first ever prequel: Monsters University!

For once, I can’t wait to go back to school! 🙂

Fun Nail Friday!

It’s finally Summer Blockbuster Season and I could not be more excited!

I’m most excited for Man of Steel although I’m sure you can’t guess why.



Yes, I’m very excited about the…uh…screenplay…

My friend and I pulled together our “Mani of Steel” looks for our favorite day in Summer 🙂

I’m sorry…I think I need a moment to recover.

Enjoy your weekend. I know I will! Okay, I’m done. 🙂

Fun Nail Friday!

Every now and then I start feeling very confident in myself, and I troll Pinterest looking for something to replicate! Usually it never ends up as badly as these Pinterest Fails but it’s never quite as perfect as it seems online.

SERIOUSLY? Show me the person who got time fo' dat, and I'll punch you.

Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.

So here’s my take on a popular Pinterest nail trend. The great things is, the pin has the instructions built right in! How could I possibly mess this up?

And my version:

Not terrible…right? I need to find me a more reliable, sturdy nail brush for the intricate designs I want to practice!

Have a great weekend!
