So a few weeks ago I had another nail break, but this one was actually really bad. I don’t want to show it to you, because it was just too ugly. But before cutting my nails down, I wanted to see what little petite points would look like, and have some fun with them.Broke Another One - Playing with Nail Shapes

With the plethora of nail artists and nail polish related accounts on Instagram you might wonder, “Who is worth following?”. I have trouble with this myself, and I actually follow about 450 artists, indie polish makers, and commercial brands on Instagram at any given time. And the list seems to always be growing! For those of you that like a little edge with you nail art, I think you will love my favorite alternative nail art accounts. These accounts all have a little something extra to their nail art – maybe a little bit edgy, a little bit dark, but always different.Best Nail Art Accounts on Instagram - Alternative Nails

For this studded mani got a little cheeky with my color selections and decided to whip out my Sinful Colors Leather Luxe collection. I was finally able to complete this collection the other day when I found “Get It On” (which I used here) and “Laced-Up” (a red-orange) at the Wal-Mart by my new place.Black Bubble Wine - Studded Matte Sponged Nails

This is the manicure that I wore on Valentines day, inspired by so many others that have done the heartbeat manicure, but I wanted to add something new to the design, my own little twist. So I broke out one of my favorite, save-for-special-occasions-only nail polishes, the color changing Lipstick Yakuza to create a special disappearing act. Disappearing Heartbeat Nail Design

I lost another one. At approximately 11:40 a.m. on a Sunday at derby practice, another nail was sacrificed. Okay maybe it wasn’t all that dramatic, but it was to ME! My nails were about three months long and it broke below the top of the nail bed. Luckily it didn’t hurt and there was no blood.Broke My Nail - New Stiletto Nail Shape
