Y’all. I love this manicure!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done any nail art that involved sponging. I forgot how pretty it can be.
For this manicure I used deborah lippmann Rolling in the Deep as the base color. I let that dry completely then sponged Orly Rage just on the tips using an eyeshadow sponge (for a full tutorial on that click here). The result was better than I expected.
I really love the combination of the rose gold and navy. It’s also a nice way to brighten up a darker polish.
There are tons of swatches under the jump (I was kind of obsessed….).

Sometimes I feel like my entire life is shades of blue. I just love blues! Navy, baby blue, royal blue, you name it, I love it. So when I was deciding on a manicure to do using my newly acquired striping tape I, of course, reached for 2 different shades of blue. For this manicure […] Continue reading →
This manicure was my first attempt at using striping tape in any way, shape or form. I ordered silver striping tape on a whim when I was placing an order on Trans Design. I thought it would be fun. I was wearing Avon Cosmic Nail Enamel in Eclipse which has holographic shimmer. The silver striping […] Continue reading →
Believe it or not this is my first waterfall manicure! I was trying to come up with something different to do for my weekly Auburn themed manicure. Thanks to my friend Tyler, who asked for a recommendation for a winter white polish, I had China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around on my mind. That ended up […] Continue reading →

I’m one of those weird fun people who walk around all day in a pseudo, life appropriate costume. This year I adopted a […] Continue reading →
My favorite holiday is quickly approaching! I absolutely love Halloween so it’s only natural to mix it with another thing I quite adore; nail polish. Over the years I’ve done quite a few Halloween manicures so I wanted to put them all in one post. Most of the manicure ideas are pretty simple yet super […] Continue reading →
The countdown to Halloween continues! Clearly I don’t subscribe to the idea that Halloween is only one day. I celebrate all month! This manicure is super easy to do and looks pretty cool when the ghost glows in the dark. I used Cover Girl Orange Oasis as my base color. To add the ghost I […] Continue reading →
I come from a baseball family. One of my grandfathers was a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals. The other is the biggest Yankees fan on the planet (and he’s from Birmingham….go figure). Yet when I was in second or third grade I fell in love with a then rookie ball player named Chipper Jones. […] Continue reading →
Forget Christmas, Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year! Every year on October 1st I put up my Halloween decorations (and get kind of, ok really excited about it). This excitement naturally makes its way to my nails. I was browsing previous Halloween posts and ran across my spider web nails from last […] Continue reading →
Somehow I managed to land in a horrible nail rut which is a problem when you’re a self declared nail junky and will not, under any circumstances, leave the house without perfectly painted nails. As any rational person would do, I turned to the internet for a little nailspiration. Finally I came across a manicure […] Continue reading →
