My name is Annie and I paint my nails a lot.

There’s nothing wrong with taking shortcuts every once and a while. Check out my super fun $5 stick-ons I got at King Soopers. Manicure in a minute.

I’m back!  For now.  Not a lot of time for the nails lately, but I really liked this one.  I got it from Sammy over at The Nailasaurus.  She’s my nail idol. I need to be less lazy with picture taking though…

I’m a little stripe obsessed.  Mostly because it’s pretty easy to do and looks so damn cool.  My technique is improving - I didn’t get any color bleeds this time!  The key is patience.  Base color.  Top Coat.  Don’t tape til it’s SUPER dry.  Tape.  Paint and pull tape one nail at a time.  Top coat.  It’s not a quick job, folks.  Oh and seeing my cuticles in these pictures makes me cringe.  Damn dry climates.

#striping tape 

Nautical.  I love striping tape manicures.  This is pretty impressive since I haven’t done one in months, but it needs some work.  I think I’ve discovered a way to prevent the streaking.  Oh and my cuticles still look like they’ve been attacked.

I’m back! This was an easy one. Gotta work my way back in gradually. This is Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac with some nail decals I picked up from Sally’s. They’re so easy to use and look great. As you can see, my nails need some love after a month of being ignored.

Valentime’s Day!
Perfect timing on this one.  I got striping tape in the mail from China just in time for this one.  I am OBSESSED with it.  And it’s holding up quite well.  I expect it’ll go for three days.

Valentine’s Sampler
These are a little all over the place but I wanted to test out all of my Valentinesy stamps.  It’s all about trial and error here, folks.  Now I plan for my actual Valentine’s Day nails. which will undoubtedly need a little bit of glitter.

Hate taking off glitter polish? Use Elmer’s glue as a base coat and then enjoy how it peels off cleanly in one piece.

I love any excuse for themed nails.
I believe I’ve covered all my bases.  Football, 49ers, Ravens, and most importantly, Blue Ivy sparkles for Beyonce.  My whole right hand is Blue Ivy sparkles because that’s what I care most about.
It’s hard to see but the Ravens nail is my favorite (even though I picked the 49ers).  I believe soon I will make a whole hand of Ravens nails.
Oh and my football field lines got smeared by my Seche Vite.  That thing is pissing me off lately.  It’s not formulated to age very well.

NUDE!  
I like using this color cause I like to say nude.  I used H&M Nerd and Essie Noir.  The stamp was from the 2012 Bundle Monster set.  I’m too lazy to go find the number.  I free handed the black sides of the thumbnail.  I like the thumb better than the rest it turned out.
