My First Complete Glitter Placement Manicure

There is #ThrowBackThursday for nail art, right? Haha... if you're a blogger, you might feel me. I did these nails 2 weeks ago but just never got to posting them on the blog. There were reviews that needed to get done and bigger, better nail arts to post. xD But alas, I decided I will show you all my first complete glitter placement manicure because it didn't turn out that bad. :O

Head on over to her blog to see how hers turned out! She told me that she has a tutorial for these floral nails... ;) Watch the video here! And keep reading to see more photos!

Neon Tribal Nails (+ Tutorial)

It is time for a little recreation time. ;) I pretty much did this exact design 2 years ago as a #bestietwinnails mani with the famous Miss Hannah from The Nail Trail.

Welcoming Summer with Winnie the Pooh!

Two Words: Hello Summer!!!

I am finally done with my freshman year of college and let me admit something; painting your nails, taking photos, and uploading them to a blog actually takes a lot more time than thought. Hence, the reason that I've been away from the blogging and Instagram world. :( But that's okay because summer has arrived and it's time for me to get back in the groove! I wanted to come back with something super cute so Winnie the Pooh nails was my answer. :)

Awwwww, I loved how Pooh Bear and Piglet turned out. <3 Keep reading for more photos!

Super Bowl XLIX Nail Art

 Heyyyy guys! I am so excited to show you my Super Bowl XLIX nails! This post will be extremely short and mostly just full of pictures because the game starts in about an hour and the pizza is a coming. ;D 

I do have to say, check out the totally awesome Seattle Seahawks nail art that my friend and I did on Friday night! My nails are okay looking; I could only do a closeup of the Seahawk's face but check out my friend Maggie's Seahawk. NOTE: THIS WAS HER FIRST TIME DOING NAIL ART. It is unbelievable.

Miss Maggie FREE HANDED (yes, free handed -- no stickers) that Seahawk on her FIRST time doing nail art. We used acrylic paint but wow. I have a very artistic friend. I did paint her nails a base color, the "12", and a gradient on the rest of her nails but that Seahawk just blows me away. Her first time painting nail art on her nails folks. Don't we all wish we could be that good? Keep reading for more photos!
