This is my current mani, although I think I’m taking it off later today. The blacklight/neon nails are wearing at the tips really fast, which is annoying. :/ For whatever reason, whenever I have nail art like that, it wears off too fast. But I keep doing it because it’s pretty. haha! Continue reading

Oh man, I remember this mani! Not just because it was so striking but also because I’ve been growing my nails out since this mani – I had three really bad (down to the quick!) breaks on my swatching hand and my fingers just hurt. :/

Sometimes when I type on my computer, I remember typing up papers on my mom’s old typewriter. There’s just something about the clickety-clack of typewriter keys that just is so satisfying. Of course, it’s utterly frustrating to mess up and not have a backspace key. 😀

This mani is one of those that I curse my apparent inability to take a good picture of a multichrome polish, in this case BootylishSlick. In real life, this mani was so damn gorgeous, but I could only capture a fraction of that beauty on camera. Continue reading
