I don't update often enough...

...but I haven't lost interest in doing my nails! Here are some iPod (I'm not cool enough to have an iPhone) photos of some recent over-the-summer manicures. These were inspired by some designes that I came across on Pinterest (Check out my nail art board to see the originals). My favourite manicure to do as of late is a double accent nail. Now that nail art is becoming more trendy, I feel like I need to be ahead of the game. Pretty soon I will probably be rocking different designs on all of my nails ALL of the time!

The chevron nail was my biggest challenge. I tried to free-hand it, and failed. Then I tried to cut out tape guides... also a failure. I ended up painting scotch tape with black nail polish, and carefully cutting out chevron strips using an exacto knife. It was time consuming and required a lot of patience, but I was thrilled with the results! I have since ordered nail art stickers from here, so the next time I attempt chevrons, it shouldn't be as much of a struggle ;)

Until next time (whenever that may be!),
