I'm not terrible at doing my own nails, but it always seems to turn out better when I get them done at a salon. This year for Christmas however, I was able to do my own fun nails since I was home sick. They turned out fairly well (considering I was sick and this was my first time using a nail pen)!

Thought I'd share some of my other creations over the years. I'll probably add to this post as I come up with new ones!

As you can see, the designs are far from perfect, but I have fun with it. Typically some of the crazier designs I won't wear to the office. However, a muted accent nail I most certainly will!
Have a very merry Christmas!
