Teardrop Stud Nails.

I tend to think the best way to take a mani from bland to cool is by adding a few studs. It's fast, easy, and eye-catching. I recently got a wheel of different shaped studs and was excited to try out something new.

I chose the teardrop studs to play with first and I wasn't disappointed. I used them over Morgan Taylor Going Native and was happy with the combination!

Nail Foil Article.

I've written my second nail article for Beauty Blitz, and am once again excited to share it with all of you! This time you can get my take and tips on nail foils. Read the article, here


Now that I've introduced the Beauty Blitz readers to foils and glitter sandwiches, what do you think should be next? 

Mexican Fiesta Nails.

I recently held a fiesta themed housewarming party in my first New York apartment, and I thought the occasion warranted a manicure. I didn't get a good shot of the nails due to party preparations, but after I deemed them Instagram-worthy I thought I'd share them here too.

I was short on time when working on this design so I decided to stamp something, and luckily found a few images that were perfect for the theme. I used the pepper image from BM-06 and the citrus images from BM-04 to create limes.

The polishes I used were Orly Spark, Sally Hansen Lickety Split Lime, and a red stamping polish from Born Pretty.

Dusty Negative Space Nails.

The negative space trend in nail art is one it took me a little while to warm up to. As someone who has nails that haven't been without nail polish for more than a few hours in years , I can't say they're perfectly white. 

But after seeing so many cute negative space designs, I realized there were plenty of options for me even if the tips of my nails are a little stained. 

For my first attempt I decided to do a negative space version of this manicure, I used OPI Steady as She Rose to create a half moon and french tip on each of my nails and left the center unpolished.

I ended up being very happy to have tried out this trend and definitely think you'll be seeing more negative space designs from me in the future!
