Polished and Pretty


To me, the perfect accessories are painted nails. You can be wearing jeans and a grungy T-shirt, but if your nails are done you look pulled together. Because I use my hands so much, polish always seem to chip off so quickly, so I don’t paint my nails as often as I would like. But whenever I do, even the most mundane tasks feel more fun!

Well I could put in about a hundred more photos, but I think that’s enough for today! I’m off to paint my nails now...should I do red or a dark purple?

P.S. Happy birthday to my brother Leon and my friend Jenn!

    I think I'm going to try the gel nails because I just love when I first leave the manicurist or I just finish up a coat myself. So pretty when it's all done!

      Ooh I have never tried gel nails. And yes, let’s definitely do a manicure together the next time I’m in town! Hopefully it will be soon :)

    I totally agree!! I love polished nails, especially something bright that makes a statement. True Red is perfect for winter and I like bright pinks & tangerines for summer.

      Jenn, those are my favorite nail colors too! Although I’m also really loving dark nails this time of year.
