“Abstract French Nail” Look from Youtube

Thought I’d share this cool nail look I did a few weeks ago. I saw this tutorial on YouTube by user Beenabop and decided to try it. I’m not into “tips” really, but I loved this look so much I wore it for almost two weeks! That’s just about a personal record.

I can’t even lie though, it was a pain to do at first. I redid my nails time and time again. I stayed up late trying to get it right.  I never got some lines perfectly straight, but they were straight enough. Doing my right hand was horrible!!!!!!!! After the millionth time though, it got easier. Practice really does make perfect.

I’m having fun browsing through the YouTube nail art videos and playing around. Those ladies are really good! I hope to one day get decent enough ideas on my own, but in the mean time I’ll keep trying what I see and sharing with y’all.

Spring Has Sprung! My Top Four Colors For Spring 2011

These are my top four colors for spring this year. A few of these you might have seen on different websites or magazines that have ‘the definitive” list of what the hot nail colors are this spring. This year, I took a few of those suggestions and a few of my own. I do wear more colors than the four below, but they are the ones that are in the heaviest rotation, and the ones that I feel really say spring.

From L-R: Sinful Colors "Boom Boom", Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Mint Sorbet", Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Lacey Lilac" and Essie "Coat Azure"

What are your fave colors for spring this year?
