I used to paint my own nails all the time which lead me to start the series Paint Your Love. The series is all about taking time once a week to invest in yourself, stopping for a moment to paint your nails and reflect on how to best love and invest in yourself. After about a year of playing with lots of crazy nail art, I started to just want more neutral colored nails. And in recent months, I have been getting shellac nail polish at a salon about every month and a half, it last THAT long for me! My nails chip like crazy with regular nail polish or without it. So I've become a shellac-a-holic since it lasts for weeks and never chips on my nails. I usually get a pretty neutral color like pale pink, burgundy, grey, or black. So this week I asked my nail lady if I could do something a little weirder. I wanted a natural nail color base with one little black line on each nail, taking inspiration from this photo on Pinterest by Love Aesthetics. I LOVE how it turned out. I think it looks like creepy cat eyes and I dig how simple yet strange it is. My sister and boyfriend are not huge fans of the look but I am obsessed. Obsessed.
Do you paint your nails regularly? How many of you get your nails Shellac-ed? It's really the best!
