Nailed it!

Hi everyone,

Personally I think Summer time is the best season for nails.  During the Summer you get to try out fun colors and designs.  Although I am usually quite reserved with the colors I prefer on my own nails I am trying to break out of my comfort zone a bit  at least for a little while.  I have also changed up my nail shape from soft square to round.  I have been itching for a bit of a change and even a small change in nail shape makes me smile.

One unpleasant thing about painting your nails often is that they may become stained.  Nails usually are quickly stained as a result of using red bright pink and especially orange and yellow.  Blush tone and neutral colors rarely stain ( if they do it is barely noticeable).  This shouldn't make you run with fear as you chuck your favorite red polish out of the window, just be more careful.  It is no big deal really!

  • You can prevent staining (without buying extra products) by painting a thin layer of clear underneath the nail color of your choosing.
  • If your nails are stained you may try lightly filing or buffing the top layer (stained layer) of nail off.  Don't go overboard with the filing--you are thinning out your nail a bit.  
Here is some nail inspiration for ya:

What is your favorite nail color/design?


  1. Love the colors you picked out and thanks for the tips!
