I’ve been on a nail polish kick recently, more than usual, and it’s evidenced by a long list of nail of the day snapshots. #NOTD is one of my favorite hashtags to lurk on Instagram, so I’ve been cropping and posting all my pictures there as soon as my top coat dries. Whenever there’s two or so free hours of down time, I take the opportunity to paint a fresh manicure. Clean, manicured nails are just a minor detail that tends to really boost my confidence, as weird as that sounds. Plus, it’s another way to showcase my personality, even if I’m not good at nail art. I just love a pop of color on the nails.
Here are some of my most recent manicure photos featuring some great colors for summer. With each application, I’m getting a little bit better at coloring within the lines (ha!), shaping, and minding my cuticles. It’s not my best work, but I’m improving. As you can tell, I’ve been really into pinks lately and that will likely continue into Indian Summer.
