Stinkin’ Groundhog!

2 Feb

Well, the little groundhog said “forget this! More winter!!!”

If this bums you out a bit too, no worries.  Bring spring in a little early.

Ditch the dark polish, and slick on the pastels.

No judgement here if you pick the grey!!!  My nails are medium grey, with white moons.  If you aren’t sure how to do the moon highlight mani, I did a tutorial here

Enjoy your little bit of spring!!

Mama is going to paint her nails.

I’ve seen it all over the internet, and even on the red carpet.  ombre nails.  Your thumb starts at a dark shade, while your pinky ends at a lighter version of that color.  I have always thought it was really pretty, but never had five different colors that would work for the project.  Three, however? That I have.

Paint the first color (I used silver)

When it dries, use the re-enforcement stickers as a guide ,and just paint on the second color

Cover with a clear coat and Voila!
