Do you ever paint your nails perfectly and then while you are waiting for them to dry you suddenly HAVE to blow your nose (like you may actually burst into flames if you do not blow your nose)! And all of a sudden there are tissue bits and dust in your once flawless manicure? Well, sometimes I manage to avoid this senario and managed to score some snap shots of my favorite summer manicures:
Black and white floral print Sally Hansen Nail Strips:
(wore these for the 4th of July!)
Chine Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, but I think it looks like
teenage mutant ninja turtle green: (this brand sells polish
at a great value of $4.99 a bottle! Plus lots of color options!)
OPI's Elephantastic Pink, ultra feminine:
(their web page is so simple to navigate!)
A sunny yellow I had done at a salon....
instantly repainted when I got home:
(but check out that amazing ring!)
"Dating A Royal" by OPI is a perfect shade of brilliant navy
blue. Great for transitioning between summer and fall:
OPI makes my favorite base coat and top coat,
I will also wear OPI's "Yoga-Ta Get This Blue" and
NYC's "Sidewalkers" thru the up coming fall season:
(listed in order from left to right)
I believe having your nails painted really completes your look. I take manicure inspiration from the ever classy Jane Russel and Marilyn Monroe who always had their nails perfectly painted to match their lipstick in the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."
