DIY Nail Art

Between myself and two friends, Tara and Savanna, we have amassed a nice collection of fingernail polish. We’re big fans and constantly change our nail color. I’ve been guilty of changing my polish multiple times within a day.

One of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, introduced us to the solid color on every nail but the ring finger. While hers was inspired because she was engaged, we simply loved having some sparkle. While it’s still a go-to look for us, we’ve been experimenting with different DIY nail art.

After cutting many small strips of tape and countless Google searches for what to do, we decided to keep it pretty simple. I love to paint their nails, even if it’s just one color. So, while I currently don’t have a journalism job, maybe there’s hope as a nail artist.

Thanks to Savanna for being a hand model. Maybe you can find your identical hand twin. (Everybody got that Friends reference, right?)



We used Exotic Encounters from China Glaze’s fall 2012 collection (the darker color) and Fast Track from the China Glaze Hunger Games collection (the gold).

China Glaze is a favorite brand. They not only have consistently great colors, but the polish goes on well, dries fast and the brush is the perfect size. Another great blog for nail polish is The PolishAholic. It’s a great site to go to before purchasing any fingernail polishes.

We’ve made it half way through the week, here’s to an enjoyable last half!
