Missed my nails? Well here’s a recap of all the nail art I’ve been sporting in the new year.Before we start I just want to clarify that I am NOT a professional manicurist, I am simply a nail art enthusiast and trust me, my designs are all kinds of wobbly and imperfect. But who cares? They’re just nails. Anyway, let’s dig in!

You will notice that lately I’ve been obsessed with Essie’s Minted Candy Apple shade. It’s slightly brighter than last year’s seafoam-green trend and it just makes me happy. The cool pastel will brighten up your finger tips while still being “office-friendly.” Here I paired it with Essie’s Chinchilly and a silver metallic shade to bring you an argyle print.

I followed up with a simple and easy polka-dot design. Paint your nails two coats of your favorite mint shade, then spot on silver polka-dots with the end of a bobby pin. InstaCUTE!

Here I tried it with Loreal’s Nail Lingerie on top. I loved the way this turned out! If you missed my last post, click HERE to watch my review of the Colour Riche Nail Lingerie.IMG_2622

I took a break from the mint and stepped into the Pantone Color of The Year, Emerald. I went with Revlon’s lovely shade called Posh and threw in some black and white dots and stripes for fun.IMG_2699

Looks like I missed that Minted Candy Apple again. To “spring” it up, I threw on some black and white daisies over (gasp!) clear, bald nails.IMG_2843

Here’s what I’m currently wearing, and what I’m most proud of. I can’t begin to describe my love for the black and white trend we are seeing on the runways for Spring. Everyone looks good in this combo! It translates beautifully into nail art. I did daisies on the thumb, Beetlejuice-esque stripes, reverse polka-dots, white lace and a stamp-on graffiti design.

Hope you enjoyed this peek into my nail-art life! Which design will you try?
