summery mosaic/stained glassish nail art!  hot off the  press.  my index and ring finger aren’t super executed, meh, my bad!  so  I mean, I love summer and everything, but my heart lies with Autumn.   as soon as mid-September hits, I’m going to be all about the earthy  tones.  is anyone else totally psyched for OPI’s Fall Collection?!

ncnstntmoon asked: i looooooooooove your blog! i just finished painting my nails inspired by the tribal photo you posted :3

yaaay!!  that’s so encouraging.  I have been inspired so many times by people, it’s such a pleasure to be able to pass it on to other creative gals.  thanks so much for the shout out, hope the tribal nails turned out well.  :]

currently:  a hall full of girls using my polishes to beautify their mini canvases.  I have been on a summer project with about 40 college students in Pasadena and I brought out about 50 polishes - they have been such a sweet opportunity to serve all of the ladies!  it brings me a lot of joy to see them enjoying what I am so passionate about.  I hope you all can find opportunities to use your paints to please!  love you all.  :]

my first shot at tribal nails!  you would not believe how hard it was to chose three colors…  because you could use anything!  oh well, enjoy.  :]
