Hi! I'm Sarah Lou and
I like painting my nails
I also like Glitter, Summer, Coffee, Concerts,
Giraffes, The Beach and a million other things
This blog is simply a space to share my nail art creations! My hope is to
keep improving my nail art skills and inspire others to try some nail art!
I’ve always loved nail polish. I loved when my sister would paint my nails as a kid. She’s 9 years older than me, so she was much better at it than I was.
One day, when I was in college, after buying some striping polishes and staring at some zebra striped scrapbook paper, I decided to try and paint zebra stripes on my toe nails. I was obsessed. My toes looked fabulous. I showed one of my cousins, and she was obsessed. My brother’s girlfriend: instantly obsessed. I did everyone’s toe nails zebra print.
From there, I kind of went to town. I bought a few OPIs, and was introduced to Essie. Bought some dotting tools, brushes, rhinestones...
Then, I broke my leg. Right around the time OPI was releasing their Nicki Minaj collection. I had to have it!! I don’t even remember how I got it. I think my friend picked it up for me, or someone wheeled me around the mall...anyway, I had a lot of time to sit down and not move with my broken leg. So I did my nails. And took pictures of them, since I couldn’t get around easily to take pictures of anything else interesting.
Once I realized nail blogs existed after finding them on Pinterest, I knew I had to make one. I was already doing my nails, and taking photos of them, so what the heck? And here we are…
I graduated from a teensy art school with a
BFA in Graphic Design, currently live in Massachusetts and work
as a graphic designer/part time ice cream stand manager.
