Laquered Up

In high school I was a cheerleader, and we practiced 11 months out of the year, so I was never allowed to wear nail polish. After graduating high school I’ve slowly gotten into the habit of weekly self manicures and experimenting with nail art. I’ve come across some note worthy blogs, images, and tips I’d like to share with you all!

First off, most recently I managed to paint my nails leopard, with out any help! IF you’ve ever tried to design your own nails, you understand what a great feat this was.

Through¬†the past I’ve also been known within my friends for creating a really good ombre nail. Last winter I did this with almost every glitter and color combination I could find…

pink with blue glitter

Green with green glitter

Pink with teal/blue

Galaxy nails; still messy from being freshly done.

Ombre Green/blue

I use a range of brands including NYC, Sally Hansen, OPI for Sephora, and Wet n Wild.

You can find almost any tutorial on Youtube, as well as a few on FYPN. There’s a TON of blogs about nail art, polishes, and design out there but this one is by far my favorite. A close second is Laquerized.com .

Enjoy, and I just wanted to share some fun inspirations with you all!

*EDIT* I’m thinking of doing a Nails Of The Week post…opinions?

Girl Crush: Kate of Paniekscelencja

Girls get crushes on other girls, it happens. Especially when they have excellent fashion sense and just seem bad ass. One girl I’ve been “crushing” on is Kate from http://paniekscelencja.blogspot.com/¬†. She’s badass, gorgeous, and when I first found her blog I thought we had alot in common style wise! She’s classic with a punk edge…we’ve both been known to wear shredded black tops, spikes and studs, and leather (but who isnt). she’s like my overseas twin, right down to the hair, and the fact that although my ancestors were primarily from Germany, they had come from Poland prior to that. Differences, though include her bigger repertoire, her love of cross accessories, and her love of skulls!

Since she’s such an inspiration to me, I figured I’d post some inspiring shots from her blog and such. If you plan on reading her blog, please go through google so it can auto-translate for you as her entire site is in Polish. Enjoy, and go show her fabulous blog some love!
