Updated Dotticure

Posted on 1

The Dalai Lama's Nails: updated dotticureI was thinking about how much I love my dotting tool (it’s true – I love it!) and I realized I hadn’t done any polka dots in quite a while. I also realized that my standard dotticure needed some sort of update. And how do we update things? Add more stuff! Sounds like a …

Looking in the Window

Posted on 1

Maybe that’s a silly name for this manicure, but the design really reminded me of looking in a window! I’ve seen a bunch of De Stijl manicures out there, and I like the idea of lines and squares, and patterns. Maybe I’ll try one that looks more like classic De Stijl. Also, my dad challenged …
