Embracing the Nail Art Trend

I love having my nails painted. For some reason, I just feel more 'put together' with perfectly polished fingers and toes. It's such an easy way to add a little color to an outfit or get festive on a holiday. In recent years (or maybe just to me) it seems that nail art has become a big trend. Going from simple colors to crazy designs. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it!

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!


Fourth of July 2012 Nails (Essie: Forever Yummy, Mezmerised and Set in Stones)
Orange nails for a Flyer's game! (Not sure of the polish as this was done at a salon. Safe to say it's Essie though)

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!
