Nail Art

Some of you may know that I am a little obsessed with Pinterest. It really is an amazing thing. I just popped over to my page and I am currently at 2,470 pins and counting (follow me here to see what I am loving lately). One thing that I have found myself pinning a lot of is fun and funky nail art. To me nails are an accessory just like a chunky necklace, a fabulous bag, or a great pair of shoes, and summer is the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone and try something fun (and I am not just talking about your toes here--I know that's where most people feel like they can get "wild").

Here are some pictures of nail art that I have recently pinned (you can find them on my hair and accessories board to link up to the original source):

I got inspired by the picture below on the left and decided to take my own twist on it. I wanted to go with a navy and lime color scheme because I am loving that combo and I thought it was kind of a preppy twist on the design. Disclaimer: I am totally not crafty and definitely did not do this myself. I was lucky enough to get a gift certificate to a nail salon from one of my kiddos at the end of the year and I had it done with my mani!

What do you think? I wish the chevron was thicker, but I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Can you even see my bitty little nails in the pic?! I sure hope so!

On a side note, are there any Zooey Deschanel fans here? I became a big fan of her after watching New Girl on FOX. It is a totally quirky show but definitely my kind of humor. Obsessed. Anyway, I subscribed to her on Facebook once I got into the show and she is now my nail art role model. The girl loves some amazing nail art. Check out her FB page and see what she has worn recently!

Have you all tried any fun or funky nail art? Leave a comment or email a pic. I'd love to hear about it!

Happy nail adventures!
