Overall I really enjoyed this book. Nails covers 3,000 years of nails, detailing antiquity up through today. The photography and illustrations are amazing all the way through from the cover to the photo essays at the end. Any true nail nerd will love learning about all the amazing twists and turns that lead women from shaping their nails with acid to today’s diverse world of DIY nail art and over-the-top nail bars.Nails Story of the Modern Manicure - Book Review & Polish

Today’s nail art is inspired by the sea…which is now 5 minutes from my new place, literally down the street! To celebrate I created this simple blue beach studded manicure. Silver sea shells and “star fish” studs look great over a blue-green gradient! What do you think?Blue Beach - Born Pretty Store Sea Shell & Star Studs

Full review and swatch of the Wintermint shade from the Revlon parfumerie scented nail polish collection. This is a minty green-glue with small blue hex-glitters that has a candy-cane like smell to match. It reminds me of the sparkly sea on a really sunny day here in San Diego with the promise of a “green flash” sunset. So pretty!Wintermint - Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish Swatch & Review

As usual, the stencils were super fast and easy to use really adding a punch to this look.Easy Stencil Gold & Pink Interview Nail Art

My first attempt at flower patterns – and I wanted to try them all! So I did two different manicures to create a little “vintage rose sampler”. In this post I try out two different techniques for painting tiny flower patterns with two different sets of color choices. What was my conclusion? I like all of the techniques and patterns of course!Vintage Rose Sampler - Floral Nail Art for Spring
