I think I found something new to love.

Its hard for me to paint my nails.

Not in an "I'm unable to paint them because I am incapable way" more like a "I can't pick up the crying baby because my nails are wet" kind of way which is really a lame excuse so my nails just end up unpainted. Until last night. We're hosting 5 girls for an Aquire the Fire event (which is a local youth concert/convention type thing) and since that makes 12 hands available to cuddle and love on my sweet Ivy I painted the heck out of them! I even added glitter.
I also discovered a new love for the amazing nail art on Pinterest as we all scrolled through for inspiration. 
I have a new found appreciation for the term nail "art"

I mean just look at them!

Nail strips are actually the perfect solution to the wet nail thing-you just press and smooth them on and voila!

I know I'm late to jump on the nail art train so please share-What is your favorite way to do your nails? Any amazing tutorials to share??

  3. I am slowly coming around with the nail art thing! I prefer to keep it simple, but I really like adding an accent nail.

    The new Sally Hansen strips look like they'll be great for summer. A classic french with a little twist, so fun!!

  6. bwa haha. "nail art". I think it looks beautiful, but I can barely keep my nail polish on my nail. As soon as my "art" would get chipped, I'd be frustrated!
