Hi guys!! Hope you had a wonderful Easter!! I most certainly did, and yes happy new month!! I'm introducing a new feature here on the blog called NAIL IT!! It will be mostly about various nail designs and inspirations, nail care, nail product reviews, D-I-Y, tutorials and all that...the whole nine yards!

This post i titled 'Lone Star"I'm sure most of you have seen this trend, where one finger nail is polished in a completely different color. Now let me state here that I'm no professional when it comes to nails, I just do it and keep getting better at it..once in a while I go out to nail bars to get my nails done, but most time I fix them myself. I've got a laarrrge kit ( nails, acrylic kit, polish, files, buffer, creams and a whole lot), you wouldn't believe I don't do this professionally!!

 I sort of hated this trend a while back, more like how I hated the oval/mountain peak fingernail shape, but style as we all know, evolves! For me, in beauty, fashion, style and all that, it is NEVER SAY NEVER!!

I decided to add some bling, which i thought made it more funky ( or not!)

Neon Polish: Nail forever Lacquer in 042
Ash Polish: Nail forever Lacquer in 006
Stones added on by Atleco Nail glue

Nailed It or Not??!!
