Foo Fighter's Nails!

Hey guys!! If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter (you totally should…) you might have seen my Foo Fighter's mani! They came to Fenway Park this past weekend so naturally I had to do my nails for the show.

It's been a few years since the Foo Fighter's toured and I had been waiting since the last show to go again because they put on an unreal show. Plus have you seen Dave Grohl's throne since he broke his leg?!? He's such a boss, I love that man. Who does that?? Dave does. And I'm glad, I would have been so upset if they had to postpone the tour.

Anyways, I went with grays and blacks because, Rock n Roll! I painted their logo and added some gold studs and chunky gold glitter. I was really tempted to flip someone off with this mani because studs on my middle finger just make it seem so badass.

My Dad, Me, my cousin twin and my brother before the show!

Glitter Rainbow Nails!

Glitter. Rainbows. Yes.

I wanted to do these weeks ago, but when are glitter rainbows not relevant? #LoveWins

So I got these sparklies from Born Pretty Store and wanted to use as many colors as possible. I LOVE all the mani's that Polish All The Nails does, but I don't know where she gets the time and patience to do her crazy sparkly nails. I'm jealous. However, I'm always so inspired when I look at her nails, so I went full sparkle. For mine, I just kind of clumped the different colors on with a small damp brush in rainbow order. It wasn't too hard, but it was crazy messy.

Neon Coral Tips!

Hey! Happy Friday! I don't know if you noticed (I'm sure you haven't) but, I'm officially just sarahlounails.com! No more blogspot extension! Woooo! I'm excited. (in case you didn't notice). I'm considering changing my Instagram next...but I'm kind of scared to. How many things are linked to me that won't work anymore? I don't think too much, someone convince me that it's a good idea!

Well onto nails! These I did a few weeks ago. I bought this wicked cute top from express that's beige with neon coral meshy color blocking. (Actually I'm wearing it in my photo over there, but you can't see much of it.) I decided to match my nails to it for the next night when I was planning on wearing it. I ended up working out a bit later after doing these and smashed my hand on a chunk of treadmill and totally ruined them. (I should probably stop working out) So, these didn't last very long.

I used:
  • Essie: Sand Tropez
  • China Glaze: Flip Flop Fantasy
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

Pretty straightforward, Red, White, Blue, Stars, Stripes. Classic.

Hope all my American followers have a fantastic fourth! We're having a pool party!! I'm excited since last year it down-poured all day and I watched "Orange is the New Black" with my mom all night...so lame.

Summer Print Nails!

Heyyy there! You know what I love? SUMMER. It's my favorite, and I'm off work all next week! My work shuts down for the 4th and I'm pumped! Hopefully I can squeeze some nail art in between adventures.

To start my vacation off, here are some summer nails! I originally thought "I should do pineapple nails!" But I decided I didn't want pineapples on every single nail, so I thought flamingos, and palm trees, and flowers! (oh my) The flamingos ended up being my favorite. They're so cuuuuutttteeee!

Mara Hoffman Bikini Nails!

Hi. Hi. Hi. I'm excited. I'm head over heels in love with these nails.

I have been dying to get my hands on a Mara Hoffman bikini since I first discovered them, but they're so expensive so I knew I would never get one. Her patterns are crazy awesome and I knew I would have to do my nails based on one this summer. I was going to wait a bit to do them, but then last week I just happened to pop on over to her site to drool/cry and she was having a sample sale! I KNEW THIS WOULD BE MY ONLY CHANCE! SO I BOUGHT ONE AND I'M IN LOVE!

I actually bought a bikini AND a dress (totally going to do nails for that too) for about the normal price of one bikini top…crazy! The kicker is, none of it was returnable, but it all fit! THANK GOD. I would have cried.

So anyways, I was so excited wearing my bikini by the pool on Saturday that I HAD to do my nails ASAP. What do you think?!?
