Nail Art


To say my friend Lauren is a pro at nail art, would be an understatement. She is freaking amazing at it. When she was over my house the weekend we went to the feast of San Gennaro, she made it her mission to give me the full nail art treatment. Since I normally stick to the same colors, I was a bit hesitant at first. But after she got started, I began to relax, and was really excited for the outcome.

The final product: leopard nails!!

(colors used are Essie's Sugar Daddy for the base, Forever 21's Mint for the tip, NYC Pink Promenade Creme for the spots and Wet n Wild Black creme for the spots)

Check out Lauren and her friend Julia's nail art blog F!nger Paintz, with pics of their designs, and tutorials. Even if its not your thing, the talent these two girls have is INCREDIBLE, and its definitely fun to look at.


  1. Nice! I've never had a fancy nail design done in my life!

  2. Looks great! I love doing leopard print nails but have never thought about doing just parts of the nail. I'll definitely check out your friend's blog :)

  5. Its fun for a little change!

  6. Thank you! Definitely check it out!! :)

  7. Your nails look incredible! To say I'm jealous is a total understatement :) And even though I usually stick to solid and more classic colors, recently I've become a little more adventurous. Starting with half moon manis- I'm obsessed :) 

    But seriously, your friend is so talented!

  8. I am the same way! Not adventurous with my nails with my nails, AT ALL! It was a really fun look to have! 
    And yes! Im amazed at her talent.
