It’s a busy month here at The Daily Varnish! Earlier in the month my nails appeared in All You magazine. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, my nails are also in the latest issue of First For Women magazine.
Interestingly enough, the magazine took a poll of their readers and 56% said they would try sweater nails.
If you agree with the 56%, or if you are simply interested in finding out more information on my manicure that is featured in the magazine, you can find out all the details in my DIY Velvet Manicure post.
As always, thank you to all of you who are accompanying me along this fun journey!
Y’all! I’m so excited about this! Several months ago All You magazine contacted me regarding a technique I’ve used in past manicures to create an ombre effect using an eyeshadow sponge tip applicator.

It’s pretty obvious by now I have a serious thing for polka dot manicures. I’ve done tons of them. And I never get sick of them! This manicure came about because I wanted to use OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. but did not want to use it as a full manicure. It’s not the most flattering color on […] Continue reading →
Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend! While I’m much more of a college football fan and my NFL team didn’t make it this year (Panthers ) I’m still excited for the game. It’s a cultural event, after all. And those commercials! But let’s be honest, the reason I really look forward to the Super Bowl […] Continue reading →
I love shoes. Like nail polish, I truly believe there is no such thing as too many shoes. It’s just not possible! Over the years I have done manicures inspired by shoes ranging from a pair of Miu Miu slingbacks to Missoni for Target suede pumps. It’s a nice way to merge 2 of my […] Continue reading →
The February issue of Marie Claire came in the mail recently with Drew Barrymore on the cover. My eyes immediately went to her nails. She was rocking what looked like easy nail art that was really cute. So of course, I had to give it a try. In the magazine it actually said what polishes […] Continue reading →

I just have to say; I love this manicure. I’m a bit obsessed with Sally Hansen Midnight Glitz and I love how it looks over white. So I wanted to use it in another manicure but in a different way. Another polish I really love is China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around. I was already wearing […] Continue reading →
