Turn on the Water(color)works!

Nothing to Disclose Press Sample

I love finding inspiration in clothing and fabric patterns. I love their repetitive nature, and they often lend themselves well to nail art. :) A while back, they had a sale at work, and I bought this dress with the most beautiful design on the hem of the dress. Not only was the dress only $5, but I had nail inspiration too?! Total twofer! To get the watercolor effect, I painted the shape I wanted, and then while it was still wet, I dabbed it with a q-tip that was soaked in acetone. I'm super excited that the design turned out pretty much exactly how it looked in my head! :)

What's your favorite go-to for nail inspiration? Tell me in the comments below! :)

The actual dress I bought is no longer in stock, but here is a picture of it. It's the StyleStalker Aura dress in Lilac:

The Daily Nail Dog!

Nothing to Disclose


As you guys may have noticed, I've been a little lax in my posting the past year or so. Because of that, I've decided to take the blog in another direction. If you follow my Instagram, you know that I just adopted a new little fur monster...her name is Molly, and she's a 4 year old deer chihuahua! Because I could never paint Homer's nails, I was so excited to get a girl dog so I could paint hers!

The new focus of the blog is going to be nail art painted on puppy toes!! I've changed the name of the blog ever so slightly from 'The Daily Nail' or 'The Daily Nail Blog' to 'The Daily Nail Dog'! :)

I decided to test out a spinoff one of my favorite designs, Reverse Rockabilly, which is perfect for this weekend here in Las Vegas! It's Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend here this weekend! She was so patient, and such a sweetheart through the whole painting process! Homer hates when I touch his toes, but she just looked at me with her weeping, bulbous eyes. She's so cute, and a total spitfire! She and Homer are CONSTANTLY playing, we're so glad we found her! You can click on the photo below to enlarge it! :)

She is an extremely spoiled little worm! :)
