1. I love red and turquoise together, and I’ve been in the mood for a bit of shimmer, so I decided to do zig zags and try out this whole trendy, hipster triangle thing. Too bad the sun wouldn’t cooperate with me to take pics!

  2. Galaxy nails! :D

  3. Between taking college algebra, commuting back and forth to be with my semi-long distance boyfriend, and the fact that said boyfriend got me addicted to League of Legends, I haven’t had much time to paint my nails lately. But… The semester’s over now, and I moved in with my guy, so I suddenly have tons of free time! I did these simple “distressed” white chevrons over coral (“Hazard” by Sinful Colors) to get me back in the swing of things.

  4. I painted my friend Brooke’s nails for her birthday and National Nurses’s Week. Not quite the gerbera daisies she asked for, but they’re pretty darn cute!

  5. Purple and hot pink ruffian nails - nothing elaborate since I’m away from home and have been failing pretty hard at more complex designs lately.

  6. Kind of plaid nails for St. Patrick’s Day, vaguely following mrcandiipants’ flannel tutorial. Not terribly pleased with them, but they’re better than the shamrocks I flubbed up.

  7. Snowy nails for snowy weather. I’ve been obsessed with glitter lately. LA Girl “Splash” over Nicole “Khloé Had a Little Lam-Lam.”

  8. Green ombré nails for a date night - thought the color was appropriate for learning to play pool. :)

  9. A rainbow glitter monstrosity for NYE. My toenails match!

  10. Stippled lily pad nails inspired by mrcandiipants’ floral design. I love that technique so much and wanted to adapt it for use with brighter colors. Please excuse the crappy cleanup - I wasn’t taking blog quality photos when I painted these… But it’s the last of the designs I did before deciding to blog again, so you won’t have to put up with sad cuticles anymore!
