My Current Obsession: Nail Art

I blame Pinterest for my current obsession with nail art. Actually, it may have started with my friend's 7-year-old daughter who has the biggest collection of nail polishes I have ever seen. She's definitely a manicurist in the making.

When I was shopping for a gift to give my friend's daughter, I came across all these cool nail art supplies on Amazon.com. It got the creative juices spinning. Then I started seeing all this nail art on Pinterest. You can see some of my favorites that I've pinned to my Beauty board. I am now officially hooked.

The picture above is my interpretation of this "clouds" nail art design. I used Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in "Dive Deeper" as the base color followed by N.Y.C. Nail Glossies in #243B, and the top color is "Ms. Milani" Milani nail polish.

The next time I do my nails, I'm going to try out this technique from the Charlotte Ronson spring runway show at New York Fashion Week...

I also want to try out this marble nail art when I have more time and patience. Watch how it's done in the video tutorial below...

  1. OMG this is so hot, I loved all of them but the Marble one the most. Very cool thanks for sharing :)

    1. Yes, I love the marble technique too! It looks so fun to do, but I just need to set aside at least an hour to really make sure it looks good.
