Gray Malin Inspired Beach Nails

Happy Summer!! I have super summer appropriate nails to show you today! I've been waiting so long for summer to finally take a stab at these nails, and I'm in love.

Have you heard of Gray Malin? He's a photographer that I've been a bit obsessed with for a while now. My favorite photos of his are these amazing colorful aerial beach shots of beaches all over the world. I hope one day I can afford a huge print of his work because I just love them. Just looking at them made winter suck a little bit less this year. Hahaha.

I chose the print "Coogee Beach Horizontal" (Australia) as inspiration for this mani! How much do you want to go to that beach??










Wishing my cuticles looked a liiiittttlllleeee nicer.

Beyoncé Nails!

Heeelllloooo! How was everyone's weekend? Mine absolutely slayed. I went to see Beyoncé on Friday night AND went to a Beyoncé themed brunch on Sunday! It was a Bey filled weekend and I loved every minute of it. The concert was flawless of course, we tailgated, wore Bey shirts that we ordered from Etsy, (I got this one) and danced the night away.

At our Sunday Bey Brunch, we ate Bey themed food, they had lemonade, played music videos, gave us pictures of Bey, had champagne and took pictures with cardboard cutouts of the Queen. It was awesome. Our appetizer was called "Becky With The Good Hair," and it was fried cauliflower with a picture of a Barbie head on a stick with x's over the eyes and it said "R.I.P Becky." We were cracking up because my BFF's name happens to be Becky, so they gave her a Becky shirt! HA!

Anyways, enough of my royal weekend, here are my Beyoncé nails! Can you figure out what each finger means?

Color Blocked Negative Space Nails!

Hey! How was your weekend? Yesterday I met up with a few Boston Bloggers for some drinks! I knew two of them already, but it was awesome to finally meet some of these ladies I only see on the inter-webs. So fun, can't wait to do it again.

Of course I needed a fresh mani for our meet up, so I did this quick color blocked/negative space mani. I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, so I went for it. I was a bit rushed though, it's not quite as crisp as I would have liked, but I still love the way it turned out.

Kitty Nails!

Crazy Cat Ladies, Unite! Ok, I don't really think I'm that crazy, but my family are recent cat owners. I posted about our little guy here a while ago. His name in Linus, and I think my mom is really the crazy one. But I had been thinking about doing cat nails and recently a friend of my brother's (who has an adorable kitty) asked me of I'd ever do them. So, I did. Her kitty is on my ring finger, my kitty is on my middle finger, and I have two cousins with cats, so I did theirs on my pinkie and index fingers. My kitty's tail is on my thumb.

I'm loving these more than I thought I would! Are you cat obsessed?
MEOW!
