Va-va-voom Nails

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I'd love to try this look! Isn't it beautiful? Michelle had a brilliant idea of painting her nails with a light grey nailpolish and topping it off with some glitter for the va-va-voom effect. (Here are the step by step instructions). Loves, would you try this? xoxo

P.S: Also love this and this.

how I wish I could have lovely nails as this. Being an artist, it just doesn't work out. I have them chipped and peeling 2 seconds after they are done.
But these are too beautiful.
Last time you posted about pretty nails I ran right to sephora to buy the paint. It still sits unopened from 2 months ago. LOL

Yes I love it!! I have seen it done with a dusty blue nail polish to and it was so pretty!

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm all thumbs when it comes to painting my nails, so I'm stuck with a single color. But this is so fun! Maybe I can con a sister of mine into doing it for me...

if I had gorgeous nails like that i'd try it!
mine are short and stumpy, flimsy and hard to grow.. so I keep them short.. I don't know how well this look would turn out on my midget nails.

Cool. I WOULD try it, but I just know I'd mess it up dreadfully...
Hope you are well, sweetie? Xx

I saw another post recently with this type of nail "do"...I love it but know that I would chip it and start peeling it off the minute I walked out of the salon..lol.
I am the worst with painted nails...
Toes are always pedicured, but nails just never works for me, boo.

That is cool. I love it but probably wouldn't try it as it would look like a dog's breakfast if I attempted it. She's done an amazing job.
