The one with the nail polish.

There have been so many pretty nail tutorials floating around the internet lately. I've been hoarding the inspiration on Pinterest, so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you.

1. Rainbow French Manicure: Ok, I found these nail art polishes for only a dollar each at Walgreens. I thought it would be easy to recreate this look. Hah! My hand is not that steady. ;) If I was going to do this again I would probably use tape to get a cleaner line, but it's still a fun look.

2. Blue Crackle Manicure: This was actually my least favorite look, but Jer wouldn't stop talking about how he loved it. Maybe it's a guy thing? I'm not sure, but it was nice.

3. Half Moon Manicure: How cool does this look? Click here for an awesome step-by-step tutorial.

4. Chinese Blossom Manicure: Hands down this is my favorite look! No steady hands, drying time, or top coat required. They are simply nail stickers very similar to the Sally Hansen ones that are so popular. This pattern from Sephora definitely spoke to me. :)

  3. I love the last look! And if it does not require steady hands, I think I could do it ;) Hmmm..I am thinking we need a girl's nail painting party in the near future. It would force me to try something new.

  8. I want to try those blossom stickers so badly! I feel like as easy as it's meant to be, I'd find a way to screw it up though...and then I wouldn't have enough stickers for all nails, or something like that! haha :o)

  11. The nail stickers have my name all over them! The floral is gorgeous and I have heard that they don't chip like polish - I get sad when I spend an hour on my nails only to have them chip later on in the day. Problem solved!

    You are the nail queen.

    xo,

  12. I love the Chinese Blossoms and the Half moon manicures. How pretty. How cool would it be to do the confetti one on the left side of your inspiration picture? I'm guessing that might be fairly difficult. :)
