Funky Cheetah Nail Art Tutorial

Kinda funny, but I was inspired by my Victoria’s Secret PJs to do this tutorial! You’ll see my inspiration in the “how-to” video. 😉

What I show here is a funky nail art cheetah/leopard design. I’m just going to call it cheetah print for now…does anybody know the difference? If so, please share!

Anyways, while hand-painting is time consuming, I think it gives you more options and you could do this on ALL of your fingers for a bolder design. I sometimes prefer a little variety, so I made it more subtle for an everyday look by painting this funky pattern ONLY on my ring finger. I did a pink tip manicure on my other 4 nails  to tie in the cheetah print colors. Pretty cool, huh?

Wanna see how I did it? Checkout my video below!

Red, White, and Blue Inspiration – The Perfect Look for the 4th of July!

I love the “American Vintage” style, so I wanted to do a quick post in honor of the 4th of July! I typically prefer vintage pieces of American flag apparel to be worn outside of patriotic holidays (it’s more unexpected), but for a bit of fun try this out for the holiday. It’s a cool, casual look that you can take anywhere, and more than likely you’ll be in a crowd of people outside celebrating in the heat. With that being said, choose the type of bag/shoe that works best for you and your activities, as this is meant to be more of an inspiration.

What will you be wearing for the 4th? Do you dig this look?


Easter worthy Spring Pastel Nails

Springtime is here (yay!), and the pastel trend is taking a rise. I’m not talking about the neutral tones you’ve been seeing for awhile, but specifically pastel colors (think Easter eggs). I actually love that it’s taking a big role in nail polish this year. I especially love the way pastel “pops” off of darker/tan skin with the contrast (because pastels typically have a white base), but I think it definitely works with all skin tones. For example, checkout this pic of my sister and I with our “Easter egg” pastel nails.

 Ok, we’re matching A LOT  in that pic with our Michael Kors watches and Pandora rings. What can I say, we’re definitely sisters! 🙂

Anyways, unfortunately I’m not sure the exact color she is wearing because she got it done at the salon. However, I wanted to share the color I’m wearing and loving!

Meet Revlon’s nail enamel, color Charming 211.

Recognize this? That’s right, I actually used this color in my Ombre Nail Art Tutorial on my thumbs! This shade is a beautiful pastel lavender that isn’t too “purpley,” and it’s actually a lot more vibrant than this picture shows. Very wearable for everyday, and looks great on both fingernails and toenails. I love how quick it dries, that you don’t have to put a million coats on to get the opaque color, and it doesn’t chip. The brush that it comes with is good too, because it doesn’t leave my color streaky and only takes a few quick sweeps to cover the nail. I found this polish for under $6 here at Walgreens Beauty Shop

Now if lavender isn’t really your thing, then no worries. There are a billion other cool pastel colors you can try! Here’s a few examples:

From top left to bottom right: Revlon nail enamel, colors Dreamer, Flirt, Minted, and Blue Lagoon.

That last color, Blue Lagoon, actually looks just like the color Katharine McPhee is wearing here!

You can actually get any of those Revlon pastel nail polish colors  here for under $6, which I think is a great deal.

I’m definitely going to buy another pastel color, or maybe a few soon. So I’m curious, which of these is your favorite?
