MARCH MADNESS!!! (Basketball Manicure)

Ok, so I'm not really much of a sports fan, but I make an exception for men's college basketball. I looooove Syracuse! I'm actually watching the Syracuse vs. Marquette game in the 3rd round of the NCAA's as I'm typing. :)

So in honor of my favorite sports team, I just got done painting some basketballs on my nails!

Great thing about this manicure is that it is FANTASTIC for short nails! I actually think this is one of those manicures that actually looks better on short, broad nails than on long nails.

Anyway, that's it for me. There's about 11 more minutes in the game, so I'm outta here!

Mardi Gras Manicure

Happy Mardi Gras!

Very simple manicure today. Basically it's just french tips with fun Mardi Gras colors! :)

I started off with a purple base coat and added green tips. Then I drew a thin gold line using the gold Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen my friend Sarah gave me for Christmas. And just for fun, I added cute little green star rhinestones on my ring fingers. :)

I don't know why purple is always so hard for me to photograph! It always comes out too blue. Darn! Well, just know that in real life it's a rich, royal deep purple.

Anyway, for those who celebrate it, have a fruitful Lenten season! God Bless!
