This design mostly uses polishes from the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean collection. This is one of my favorite polish collection of all time. I love the muted, dusty looking pastels.1-Phonto1361205287085

Manicure Monday: Super Bowl Edition February 4, 2013

Hi all! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. Here’s the mani I did for the Super Bowl. I’m not into football at all and actually only caught the last few seconds of the game.




Also, this is what I ended up adding to last week’s mani after wearing it plain for a couple days.



And here are a few pictures from the Hand Jobs show at 24k studios in SF.

Just wanted to give you a couple more ideas for New Year’s nails.

I love the gray tones with a hint of glitter in this one.

This one is so pretty with the gold tips and the silver hexagon glitter.

How cute is this tuxedo design!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!
