Nicole gets Nailed

Just your average thirty-something nail polish addict sharing my addiction with the world or the 2 friends following me - thanks mom!
Happy Friday!!  Hand painted diamond and lips FTW - I used acrylic paint for the detail, I find it much more forgiving than nail polish!

Another splatter mani, this time I used acrylic paint and no straw.  I have to say this technique worked so much better for me than using a straw - I managed to keep the paint on my nails and out of my mouth - bonus!!!

Then and now Tuesday!! #thenandnowtuesday I was so proud of this mani, I loved how the ring finger turned out, now I’m quite impressed with my bow!  Happy Tuesday masquerading as a Monday!

Solo shot of my #bestietwinnails I did with my favorite @sassypaints2012 I had been wanting to do a mani inspired by @tartecosmetics  golden day & sultry nights eye shadow palette packaging for some time, so glad I got the chance to share that with my Gini!  ps. It was @sassypaints2012 birthday yesterday, please head on over to her IG and wish her a happy one!

#bestietwinnails with my favorite @sassypaints2012 So honored and happy that Gini agreed to do this with me – Gini is the SWEETEST, kindest and all around loveliest person, friend and blogger I have met since starting my nail journey over two years ago.  If you haven’t checked out Gini’s blog, do so now, her nail art is more amazing than she thinks and her swatches are beyond incredible – I mean look at her nails (hers are on the right, by the way), they are impeccable!!  Inspiration came from the joining of our two great minds and mostly from the @tartecosmetics golden day & sultry nights eye shadow palette packaging, which I LOVE!  Can’t wait to do more collabs Gini, you rock!! xx
