Today's News


So, something exciting happened to me today!! I was interviewed for the Today Show website! SO exciting, I never would have imagined that anything of that magnitude would EVER happen to me!! In honor of the article, I decided to do the Today Show logo on my nails!


I used OPI Alpine Snow Matte as a base, with Nubar Sexy Red for the red, CND Electric Orange for the darker orange, Zoya Jancyn for the lighter orange, and CND Bicycle Yellow for the yellow. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Woo!!! I'm soooo stoked! Thanks to all of YOU for being such great readers, and WELCOME to the new readers!!! :) You kick ass!! (and not the kind from yesterday's manicure)

  20. Discovered an article on you from the today show on msnbc.com. I actually intern there. Wow, very impression nail designs. Loved the rubber ducky one, it was real cute. You should open your own salon :) It would be beyond more creative than the designs from other nail salons.

  22. You kept me very entertained at work today, as I came across your blog on the top stories of Bing. I'm sure your hits are bananas today! I love, love, lo0ove your creativity! I've maintained really long, natural nails for years w/o painting them b/c I found it useless. You've totally changed my mind! And yes, do put all of your designs together in an album. Congrats on the success!!!
