Hanukah Has Nailed It: A Festive Nail Art Tutorial For The Festival of Lights

Hanukah is upon us! In light of this event, I wanted to share a quick #NailedIt with you. I didn’t actually nail it too much because I tried this technique in the middle of the night- and with five hours available for sleep for me that’s a particularly stupid idea- and I ended up facing

Game of Chance in Nail Art

Summer time means a lot of road trips for my family, and that means a lot of time eating out. While we wait for our food to come we like to break out a pack of cards and play a quick round (sometimes three if it takes a while or we are moving quick!) of

The Hand of Destiny: Organic Tattoos

I recently went to a Summer festival, full of carnival games and delicious sweet and fried tidbits. I ate a yummy fruit tart (gluten free, of course) sold by a local bakery, and actually won a round in that impossible milk bottle toss game. And then, I noticed a little both on the outskirts of

Fire and embers

I was a little shocked that my current project, an upcycling tutorial, is taking longer than the 5 days I had planned. So I have chosen, in the meantime, to share this quick nail look with you all, though it will already be a familiar sight to some of my active Twitter followers. The background

Monthly Surprises: Julep Subscription Box Review

I recently subscribed to Julep Brand’s monthly box program. Julep is, of course, the brand that is most well known for their nail polishes and manicure tools that “make a home manicure easy and fun.” I know I always enjoy doing my nails regardless of whether I use dollar polishes or fancy brands, but I

Mean Green Sweetheart

I decided to simply slather on whatever green nail polishes came to mind, and I’ve got to say it worked. I love the look of this manicure! (I’m sorry for the door messing up the background, I don’t own Photoshop or anything else…) And I was able to pull it all together with free drawn

St. Patrick`s Day Nails

Tomorrow is St. Patrick`s Day! So, in a mixture of nostalgia for February and love for a joyfully pointless holiday, I created this nail design.   Trace a heart on a dried out pencil eraser, and use an x-acto knife to cut away the excess. You may find that the stamp doesn`t work perfectly, so

Surprise Inside! Rainbow Crackled Nails

I`ve been promising some things for about a month now. In particular, this little gem of a preview post foretold the coming of a theme week. Then, in a fit of pique, I decided to drop that project. However, I felt inspired to return to the question a few days later, on the third if

Talons of Zteel (or Steel, if you are into the whole letter ‘S’ thing…)

I dont know about you, but I love nails. They are the one piece of glam on a girl that can look perfect for a week and good enough far longer, as well as always available in the right size! I have wide feet, and shoe stores always annoy me because even though I have

I was off on a Zafari…

Wondering about the title? I just really love sticking ‘Z’ into everything now. It makes me feel like I`m following a theme or something! So, what`s up in Zville? I have been crafting five different posts for you today. That is why I did a double post yesterday, just to make sure I wasn`t leaving
