Fun Nail Friday!

Happy Friday! It’s Oscar weekend of course, so it’s time to start taking some risks.

So I decided to file my nails to a point like all the cool kids are doing and combine some interesting colors and textures! I gotta say, once my nails grow longer I think I’ll be a great asset to the pointy nail community. It really does good things for my fat sausage fingers.


Please excuse the cuticles. They are out of control this time of year!

Pastel pink? Gold glitter? Yes, I can wrap my head around that. But black and white chevron pattern thrown in? That’s when things get weird. But you know…I like the combination of these textures and colors. At first glance, it’s weird and doesn’t seem to really work, but then you realize it does. Kind of like Ben Affleck’s ARGO hair.

Don’t like this hair? Argo-f*ck yourself!

It’s still February (for some reason) and LDL is back with pinky rhinestones! Tis the season! 🙂

Emergency Glitter Removal

Now that its the new year and you’re not legally required to wear glittery/sparkly nails (at the moment), its time to take it all off. Simple. That’s it. Any questions?

Oh yes! Everyone knows that glittery polishes are a pain in the ass, so here are some tips for removing it without spending 5 minutes on each freakin’ nail.

Using mild acetone:

  • Saturate a cotton ball with nail polish remover
  • Place on nail, making sure you’re covering the entire nail from cuticle to tip, and gently press down
  • Hold for about 30 seconds, letting the acetone soak in
  • Gently slide the cotton ball from the cuticle to the tip of the nail. Most of the polish should be gone by this point, but wipe away any stragglers with the same pad
  • Repeat for all nails
  • Make sure to moisturize your nail beds afterwards, they’ll be a little dried out

You could also use pure acetone (which I prefer), which is much more powerful, but will dry your fingers out immensely, so be doubly sure you’re moisturizing. Here’s a fun tutorial I found that shows a creative way to get your glitter polish off. It takes a little longer than I’m used to, but more effective.
