I don’t bow to White folks but yeah she (they?) is good at the nail game, I can’t even front 

Whoa whoah whoah.  I’m touched that someone wanted to defend me, but please don’t pile on this person.  homohomosapiensapien apologized and seems like a cool chick so it’s all okay.

hey sorry what I said about your hand, I'd never heard of that before. I honestly really do love the paint job, I sure as hell couldn't do that

Hey thanks for being cool about it and apologizing, I really appreciate that. I seem to get a lot of weird comments about my hands and nails, and I get a little defensive about them.  Sorry to single you out.

I want to believe.

you did all that but couldn’t fix that crooked ass pinky nail?

I actually, literally cannot fix that crooked-ass pinky nail.  I have fifth finger clinodactyly, AKA crooked pinkies.  The nail itself is pretty straight, but it looks weird because the finger tip it’s attached to is bent.

Tune in for next week’s edition of People Sure Do Have All Kinds of Opinions About My Hands.

I think the worst part about this is the misuse of “you’re.”

Although I’m not too big on the unsolicited sexual comment either.

How To Have a Pizza Party on Your Nails:

I started with a bright purple base (Maybelline Ultra Violet), then added the shape of the pizza crust in cream and the slice in yellow (OPI My Vampire Wears Buff and Zoya Darcy, respectively).  I used a light brown (Zoya Flynn) to add some shading to both the cheese and the crust, then did the same with a light orange (Zoya Arizona).  With a much darker brown I lightly outline the pizza and crust, and added a few spots here and there.

I used a bright red (Essie Clambake) for the pepperoni, then added a little shading to them with a deeper red (Zoya Sooki). To finish off the pizza, I used some small dabs of cream on both the cheese and crust as highlights.  For the background, I added a shadow along the top and one side of the pizza with a darker purple (Zoya Kieko), and some confetti.  Top coat to smooth everything out, and blam! Pizza Party!

The flower prints on these bad boys was inspired by Nails Ya’ll's flowers, which were in turn inspired by Bouffants and Brokenheart's patterns.

The very talented Laura of Polish All the Nails! recently launched a web store selling nail charms and glitter: The Sparkly Shop.  She sent me some of her charms to check out, and they’re all pretty great—I had trouble deciding which to use first.

These nails feature the enamel pizza charms.  They’re small and flat enough to fit easily on the nails, which is nice for when you don’t feel like getting too crazy with shit. And they’re very cute.  You can use the code LADY15 for 15% off your purchase from The Sparkly Shop, if you need these in your life.

Is that guy your husband??

A

Nope, neither of the guys in the last post are my partner.  They’re my cousin and an old friend his (and of mine), who were both down for some nail art.

My man has promised to let me paint his nails sometime soon, and I’ll definitely post that here. He’s pretty much my biggest fan.

Besties!

I love a man who’s confident enough to rock the polish.

Not even sure what to call these babies.

I made my veggies matte. Think I like them better this way.

I've gathered from your tutorials that you tape around your nails while doing gradients, but whenever I've tried this it ends up being more work than it's worth. How do you do it? Do you do one finger at a time or cut the tape to go around the curve a bit at the base of your nail or am I just naturally horrid at this? I'm considering just painting glue around my nails and then base coat/colour applying while the glue dries so I can peel it off. My cuticles are so horrid after I try to gradient.

A

Gradient clean up is the worst, isn’t it? I don’t always tape my nails for gradients, but I usually do if I’m using a dark or skin-staining polish. I use the technique laid out in this video, which does leave little gaps at the bottom corners due to the nail’s natural curve, but otherwise does a good job. I also try not to sponge polish directly over the bottom edge of my nail, since it’s so hard to clean up around my cuticles and usually I want the line of the gradient to start a little higher up the nail anyway.

Another thing I like to do is paint cuticle oil around the edges of my nails before I do a gradient. It keeps the polish from sticking to my skin quite so well and as a bonus helps moisturize. I have one of these nail oil pens and it works particular well for this.
