Simple Manicure

Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean

January 30, 2013

Today’s manicure: two coats of Julep Eloise (navy), with one coat Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean. :)

The above photos were taken with my iPhone the morning after I painted my nails (in natural light). Here’s a shot with my big momma camera (Canon 50D) taken the night before right after painting my nails (desk lamp)…

And one the next morning in natural light with the big momma camera…

Disneyland Manicure #1 (Dots & Mickey Mouse)

January 27, 2013

I go to Disneyland each year with s good friend and I’m so excited our trip is coming up soon! I really want to have some cute Disney nails while I’m there so I’m trying out a few different designs.

I’ve been pinning some ideas on Pinterest that I’m going to try, but this one is my own design…

  • Black polish: 1 coat China Glaze Liquid Leather, 2 coats Girly Bits Into the Night
  • White polish: OPI Alpine Snow

Long time no blog

January 8, 2013

Hi all! It’s been a really long time since I last posted here. Definitely not “daily.” ;)

Back in December my nails were probably the longest they have ever been! What’s the perfect manicure for long nails? A French manicure of course… :)


Unfortunately I had a run-in with a really bad manicurist at the Salt Lake City Airport just a few days later. :( The poor girl really had no idea what she was doing. Filing down my nails (No! Stop!), and trying to cover ever bit of nail with polish (Hint: theres a reason why good manicurists leave a little bit of nail near the cuticle unpolished).

Mental note: Never get another airport manicure. Its just not worth it.

Image below is shown small because any larger would scare small children. No, really. Sadly, I did pay for this manicure. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I got back to my gate to wait for my flight…


After she totally messed up my nails, I ended up trimming them down so I could grow them out. They were pretty stained anyway.


And now I’m just growing them out again. :)
