I love that you guys are sending me pictures of your nail designs!! There are some I had to share — all in the spirit of getting inspired.

My cousin, Sabeen, tried another design — this time based off InStyle’s black n’ white nail picture.

The how-to:

1) Paint nails white first, and let dry.

2) To get the half-moon shape on the bottom, she used those round stickers you get at Staples and then cut them to size.

3) Cover the bottom half of the nail with the sticker, then paint over with black.

I also received another picture of my friend trying out the “Tim Burton” nails from an earlier post…and some:


My favorite is the ring finger, dark blue with gold tip 🙂 She used Essie’s Fall collection: Midnight Cami with Angora Cardi as the tip.

Skittle nails!

And finally, a last email from a reader who got her nails done this time with bright tips. It reminds me of Skittles!

This is so cool, I love that you guys are trying something different!

Keep sending me pictures if you guys are inspired to try something new (doesn’t just have to be nails!).

  3. I always seem to have a hard time on deciding which nail design to use, sometimes it can take me hours to decide. I usually try changing my nail designs at least twice a month.
