tough love

I haven't had a chance to catch up on here, but to all who have left comments recently - Thank You So Much!! I can't believe some of the super kind things people have said and the awards are fantastic! 
So here is a mani a little less sweet ;)


we've got chemistry

I've been spending a fair amount of time on and they have the most incredible selection of art prints. I saw this one the other day and I had to do it <3


light hearted

More cute heart designs from cutesville! I can't control myself, I have another one planned for tomorrow too!


love is in the air

I don't know when I became the girl who loves hearts and bows but I am thrilled that Valentines Day is approaching as I have a legitimate reason for all this girly stuff <3


rhinestone tiger

I'm a little obsessed with the rhinestones right now so there may be a couple more in the next few days ;)


nail buff

I love using acrylic paint! Any color you want, right at your fingertips (pardon the pun).
I added some of my new rhinestones but I think it looks a bit like a pickle...not quite the look I was going for : /



I'm a barbie girl

Just got bunch of tiny nail art rhinestones! I have wanted to do a mani like this for quite a while.


ladies who brunch

I'm having brunch today with an absolutely incredible group of women and I wanted something very ladylike :) What better than diamonds and strings of pearls <3



apple of my eye

In keeping with the color theme from my recent award (*cheeky*) I thought I would do a coordinating mani :)

woo hoo!

When I got home tonight I was greeted by one of Zingerman's super cute mail order catalogs <3 This is awesome because: a. Zingerman's rocks & b. it's all Valentines-y



heart breaker!

I absolutely LOVE having pointy nails! For the longest time I thought they looked so 80's but I'm having a great time with them. They seem to add a little more glamour to the designs :)



I had to see what it would look like stamped and I love it! I might try this again at some point, only with all red :)



After finally getting the green stains off my nails from the Sinful Colors I used the other night, I wanted to try something different. I love mani's that incorporate bare nails; I was going to stamp these as well but decided less is more.
Plus I think these look just a little bit villainous ;)


lavender lovelies

I think I've only used this image once before but it's probably one of my favorites for a simple mani. I love the little hearts; you almost don't notice them at first <3


hungry as a hunter

I picked up this incredible hunter green polish tonight from Sinful Colors called Last Chance. I'm not sure if this was the right color to put with it but it will do for now :) It is such a beautiful color that I considered just leaving my nails polished, but I caved and had to add a little flare ;)


retro flowers

One of my favorite sites is You can design palettes, patterns, colors, and browse thousands of designs other folks have made. The inspiration for this mani came from a pattern I was playing around with :)


i heart miu miu

This is another mani inspired by Miu Miu; an adorable heart print skirt from the 2011 resort collection.


Happy New Year!

This doesn't really look like anything "New Years" related but I'm kinda loving it anyway ;)
