The Week I Got Crafty With My Nails

Lately I’ve been inspired by the gorgeous at-home manicures to be found at Style by Santina and Star Crossed Smile. My attempt at interesting nails (black with accent nails in pink sparkle) wasn’t nearly as fun as the manicures these ladies pull off but I’m happy.




I tried again a few days later with a holiday red color and sparkle accent nails. I think I liked the black and pink more…





Then I did some winter wonderland holiday nails which I loved!





Here are some other manicures that I‘m loving courtesy of my weheartit archive.

I suck when it comes to doing my nails. Its a talent that I just dont seem to posses. That being said I would love to try the winter wonderland look you created here.

i like your black and pink sparkle nails. and you can easily get some of those looks by using the Sally Hansen salon effects nail strips. they make a leopard print!

LOVE the winter wonderland nails. gorg. a girlfriend taught me a trick i've been doing on my nails- do color, then sparkle, then color again. it's more subtle than just sparkles and easier to get off when it's time to change up!
happy new year!

I wish I could get behind glittery nails, but I always find glitter on my clothes or couch two weeks later, so I'm pretty much done with it.

Oh man, I stink at painting my own nails. Yours look great! I love the accent one!

I love the Winter Wonderland nails, they remind me of the inside of a snow globe! I'm horrible at doing my nails, I chip the paint within minutes of doing them.

Happy New Years!
