Laquered Up

In high school I was a cheerleader, and we practiced 11 months out of the year, so I was never allowed to wear nail polish. After graduating high school I’ve slowly gotten into the habit of weekly self manicures and experimenting with nail art. I’ve come across some note worthy blogs, images, and tips I’d like to share with you all!

First off, most recently I managed to paint my nails leopard, with out any help! IF you’ve ever tried to design your own nails, you understand what a great feat this was.

Through the past I’ve also been known within my friends for creating a really good ombre nail. Last winter I did this with almost every glitter and color combination I could find…

 

pink with blue glitter

Green with green glitter

Pink with teal/blue

Galaxy nails; still messy from being freshly done.

Ombre Green/blue

I use a range of brands including NYC, Sally Hansen, OPI for Sephora, and Wet n Wild.

Now, for some of my favorite nail inspirations:

I actually attempted these on Halloween and failed miserably. It’s not even worth posting an image.

You can find almost any tutorial on Youtube, as well as a few on FYPN. There’s a TON of blogs about nail art, polishes, and design out there but this one is by far my favorite. A close second is Laquerized.com .

Enjoy, and I just wanted to share some fun inspirations with you all!

*EDIT* I’m thinking of doing a Nails Of The Week post…opinions?
