Big Moves (and Fancy Pants Nails)

Hi all!

It’s been a couple weeks since I last posted but with good reason! I will be moving to Buenos Aires in just three short weeks and I’ve had a lot on my plate to prepare for the big move!

The move has been something I’ve had in the back of my mind for a long time but I’m finally taking the plunge and risking it all. I mean, the job market can’t be any worse than it is here, right?

Anyway, October 4 I will be arriving to my new home with my boyfriend and I’ll be starting a new chapter in my life and I can’t wait! Any and all advice is appreciated.

On another note I have had a recent obsession with having crazy nails. They’re a great ice breaker (my dentist always notices my nails) and make your outfit look spunky even when you’re just wearing jeans and a tee shirt. Here is my most recent design:


This was actually really easy and I learned something incredibly useful from it. All you do is your base coat and the outer color and let it dry COMPLETELY. Use tape to create a triangle and paint a single coat to make the triangle. Now, I’ve always done this wrong since I was 12, painting a French manicure with tape. Apparently you’re supposed to remove the tape as soon as you paint the triangle. And it works so much better! The paint doesn’t stick to the tape at all.

I found this design on Pinterest but I. Guarantee you can find hundreds more on Pinterest, too.

Enjoy, and until next time!
