In case you missed some of my other posts for this theme, I’ve shared a microbead sunset view, a criss-cross textured gradient, some elegant striped nails, and a very colourful textured dotticure.

Each snowfall has been beautiful to me and it’s only natural to want to put that on my nails. (more…)

Hi everyone!

You might remember that I briefly showed you three different nail art designs in my recent post about the Frankie watch from JORD, but I didn’t show you many detailed pictures of the nails or tell you how I did them.

On the topic of that recent post – if you haven’t grabbed your gift card for $25 off a JORD watch yet, you can get it here(more…)
