Nail Inspiration

5 comments

Lately, there have been some really, REALLY cool manicures floating around Pinterest and the blogosphere. Inspired by everyone’s nail creativity, I decided to do my own creative DIY manicure (see above). This is a combination of OPI and Zoya and it was super easy to do! First, I painted a base coat of the Zoya purple and then did a few coats of the OPI on my tips. And ta da! It’s a jewel-toned, sparkly french manicure.

This wasn’t my first attempt at a creative manicure and it certainly won’t be my last. For Halloween, I tried Sally Hansen’s press on manicure in “lace”. See below.

And last year, I did a variation of the first manicure I showed you but with a navy blue from American Apparel’s line of nail polish (as opposed to the purple), and the same gold glitter polish. See below. (You can read more about this manicure in my blog post “Polished Perfection.”)

Although I’m proud of my DIY manicures and think they turned out pretty well – these manicures below put mine to shame. Oh well – there’s always room for improvement!

One of Sara’s ever-inspiring manicures over at Glitter and Grace – She used tape to create that clean line!

I think this is called Baby it’s Coal Outsite? But I’m not positive. Image from Pinterest.

And my personal favorite…

I love the black w/ the gold studs. I must try that out.

Great Nail Inspiration.

The chrome nail polish you can wither find through "Stargazer Chrome" or "Maybelline Mirror Magic!" Hope that helps :) It's absolutely one of my favorite new nail trends.

I love your purple and gold manicure! Nice work! I pinned it and plan to have the salon attempt it tomorrow. :)

So, so cool! I love the studs one!

I love all of the different options you give in this post. One of my personal favorites is the letters that are transcribed onto the nail. I love the idea of my fingernails looking like pages of a book (nerd alert). I love the shiny ,metallic, colored nails as well.

Great post!
