Small Interval...and Coraline!

I really want to give you guys an accurate review of the Nailed It! wraps from Espionage Cosmetics, and in my excitement I didn't prepare any designs for the week I tested them out. So unfortunately I don't have any nail designs for you, but instead....



I'm currently working on a piece for the Laika Coraline contest. You can find more information on the contest on their Facebook page. I decided to create a fashion illustration inspired by the film. I really like the button eyes in this because they give a really creepy dead vibe. I'll post the final piece once I finish.

Review: Nailed It by Espionage Cosmetics UPDATE

 I saw a post on Fashionably Geek back in August promoting Espionage Cosmetics' Nailed It! Kickstarter campaign, and of course I needed to invest in these. As you can probably guess, I pledged a large(ish) sum, and it was totally worth it!

Valentine Series: French Hearts


For some reason, I'm obsessed with french manicure designs. I'm not one for just a straight french tip, but throw in some color, or cool accent and I'm in love. It works really well for Valentine designs because the french tips scream "fancy," but the accents really make it fun. This is great for the day at school or work, and for date night.
