if you’re on pinterest, it is hard to ignore the astounding amounts of crazy intricate nail art that floats around. i love my fair share of the hokusai, blue dragons, and hello kitty nails, but i’m one of those girls who keeps my nails short (um… by biting them), and can’t keep nail polish on my fingers for more than 72 hours (and unchipped for 48). so i’m sticking to styles i think i can manage.

one color, one sparkle? i can handle it.

i’m more likely to use two nail polishes, instead of gold leaf, but that doesn’t stop it from being totally cool.

i think a few pieces of tape could help make this a reality.

realistically, i think is maybe the most that i could possibly handle.

have you seen any great nails recently? any you think i’d like? do tell!
