Summer Print Nails!

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?!?

Blue Floral Nails!

Heyyy everyone! I have some floral spring nails today that I did with a new Born Pretty Store Brush! I recently saw a rose tutorial but I can't remember where! It was really simple though, I used a dotting tool to put a big dot of light colored polish and then used this Born Pretty Store Brush to swirl a darker shade on top. It creates this easy marbled look. Then I just used the same brush to add some gold leaves. I think they turned out really cute!

OH, I also used a make up sponge to blend two shades of blue for the base color.
