Visual FBFF: DIY Manicures


Kendra from Thrifty and Shameless wanted to to see our creative manicures. I was quite excited about this week's visual FBFF post idea because as you may know, I am quite the nail art freak. Be warned, lots of manicures ahead!

I've done strawberry nails:

Watermelon nails (A personal fave):

Half moon nails inspired by the Ruffian runway show:

I've also added lace which was inspired by the runways:

I get into the team spirit with Yankees nails:

Or the holidays with flag nails for July 4th:

And Christmas:

I found new uses for old eye makeup:

I enjoyed the crackle trend:

And the Sally Hansen nail strips:

Currently, I'm wearing Orly's "Passion Fruit" with Sally Hansen's Salon Effects strips in Wild Child on my ring fingers:

I've seen this look around the blogosphere and thought I'd give it a try. I've never used Orly polish before but this bright color caught my eye. After two coats it's still pretty sheer so I'll have to add a light color first so I can build up the color next time.

I have so many nail art ideas and so few nails. Stay tuned! How do you like to spice up your nails?

  2. I'm very impressed. You must have lots of patience and a steady hand. I agree with you--the watermelon one is my favorite, too.
