Springy Nails

As you know, bc I mention all the time. This semester has been so busy for me I haven't been able to blog as much as I used to, and sit down and write out content like I usually do. I do spend time on the computer at work and at home, and I spend a lot of time looking at my nails. I can't help but notice my nails are currently in need of TLC. Im on my second week. I try to paint mine every week. I can usually go 2 without my nails chipping. The tips don't chip but at the base there is a void where they grew... HOW? I use Sally Hansen extreme wear invisible as a base coat (mainly so the color doesn't stain my nails... anymore than they already are.) And Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top coat.
Since I don't have a lot of time to do cool nail art I try to do the typical-- bright nail color and paint my ring finger or thumb a contrasting color.





For spring, I am loving bright nails. I'm currently wearing yellow, but I think I'm going to paint them a melon color soon. The photo above is orange from last season! And Milani gems on my ring fingers.
As an easy way to spice up any plain color I use a crackle or holographic coat on the ring or thumb nail. Super quick and easy. I want to paint my nails right now!
The trend I need to try, is newspaper nails taken to the next level-QR NAILS!

I love candy painted nails. To me, a look always seems to be missing something if your nails aren't doing something fun
