[NOTE: All photos were taken by the camera on my Blackberry.]

Lately I have been playing around with some nail designs. This happens to me every few months or so. I would love to go all crazy and rock Skittles nails all day everyday but the reality is, my profession (ugh, I hate being an adult….seriously) forces me to be rather conservative in the nail polish/design department. No fair!! But that doesn’t stop me from trying to sneak a little vavoom on my nails. Even if it is only one one nail.


For this look, I am rocking Zoya’s Rea with a quick dash of Zoya’s Jacy. I love love loooove how Zoya’s Rea looks. It is a gorgeous foil-y plum with silver bombs all up and through it. Jacy, a jelly, gives me that extra bit of glam without going overboard. I thought this look was rather work/church safe.

Total weekend look! Dark nails are unexpected in the summer. And that’s just the kind of lady I am…unexpected. Diamond Cosmetics’ Plum Pie in the Sky with a dash of Diamond Cosmetics’ Berry Sweet is a slammin‘ weekend mani.

Ah yesss, this may be one of my favorite random designs ever. Lavender purple nails with a spot of green. Quite spring-y, uh? Orly’s Mint Mojito with a splash of Orly’s Cashmere Cardigan. I decided to go with the french mani on the ring finger because, well… reason, really. I was playing around and that’s where I ended up! Michelle from All Lacquered Up even gave me props on that mani. You know I died, right?

Now this mani is about a month old or so but I am seriously thinking about re-doing it; but adding some nicer touches to it. I struggled with the design on this one. It looks rather amateur but a round 2 should really set it off! China Glaze’s Sky High Top with a splash of China Glaze’s Tree Hugger are probably two of my FAVORITE blues and greens. I mean….ever.

I am STILL doing cartwheels over Nubar’s Going Green collection. I did this mani shortly after reviewing the collection. That delicious Reclaim dominates the scene will Wildfire makes a guest appearance on the ring (haha, that rhymes). I topped it off with a pink flower nail decal from Fing’rs (stay tuned for reviews!). The sticker gives it a nice touch but let’s be honest, Reclaim really steals the show.

If you follow me on Twitter, you never know what I may sister’s darling new Mali-poo puppy, sneak peeks of upcoming mascara reviews, behind the scenes shots at events, my travels, yummy raw/vegan dishes… just never knowwww.
