Manicure-ing

Another dabbling that I love to do (but difficult because I have to sit still for soooooo long) is nail art. Not museum-worthy art, just cute mostly seasonal manicures. I have 111 bottles of nail polish 😮  most of which is a result of my subscription to Julep over about 1.5 years (their polish is fantastic, I highly recommend it).   The rest is a result of an “oh look something shiny/colorful!” moment in either Target or Walgreens OR an off-the-wall color that I totally had to have to do a project – like this blue for Minions when my Minion obsessed BFF came to visit:

One of the coolest manicures I’ve given myself is when my husband (San Francisco 49rs fan) and I (Pittsburgh Steelers fan) went to Pittsburgh to see our teams play each other:

Left Hand:        steelers

Right Hand: niners

I found this piggy idea on Pinterest. normally I don’t do the design on all my nails (because, you know, sitting still) but I had a lot of time this day and they turned out really well:

Next on my list is a July 4th design which I just realized I already have the blue from my Minions project and the red from the 49rs nails….bummer, I’ll have to make up another excuse to go to Target.
