Sidewalk Chalk Nail Art!


I hope everyone is familiar with sidewalk chalk because it is something I loved as a kid. In fact, I still love it so much that I have a some in my trunk, just in case!

I decided to some nail art dedicated to sidewalk chalk and this is what I came up with.

For this manicure I used: Nicole by OPI - Unknown, someone please tell me if you know the name of this great black/gray matte. Revlon - Waterfall, Sally Hansen - Yellow Kitty, Essie - French Affair and Funky Fingers - Mint Montauk.  I topped it off with a coat of Hard Candy - Matte-ly In Love

I used very small paint brushes to create the "chalk" look.

Thanks for looking!

Frank-tastic Nails!

Hi everyone!

So I have decided to change My Boyfriend's Pick of the Week to Frank-tastic Nails (a name picked by Frank, my boyfriend) This week's post is very special because Frank himself picked out the colors AND painted my nail for me! Let me tell you, it was amazing! Take a look at his work.

He chose to use Funky Fingers - Peacocky (a name I love) with OPI - Black Shatter as an accent on the ring finger. I have used OPI Shatters planty of time but I have never had it come out as good as it did here. I might have to have him do my Shatter for me for now on!

So I would like to say a BIG thanks to Frank! I love how my nails turned out and I will be sad to take this off!

Has anyone ever had their boyfriend/husband/significant other paint their nail for them? How did it turn out?

You Can Use Duct Tape For EVERYTHING!


I was trying to come up with some original nail art idea, but it is very difficult because there are so many other great bloggers out there. After pondering about it for a while, an idea struck me. I searched the web and popular nail blogs and I didn't find anything even remotely close to my idea so here it is...

DUCT TAPE NAILS! Now I know they don't look all that great, but this was my first ever attempt. I actually like how it wrinkles on some nails because then it has that true duct tape look. This took me less than ten minutes to do and it was a lot of fun.

If you have any questions on how I did this, please comment! I would also love to see other attempts!

A couple of posts ago I mentioned an OPI giveaway and, don't worry, it is coming soon!
