Okay so I don’t know about you guys, but I have always been obsessed with personalizing everything about myself as often as I can. From the obvious, clothing, to hair accessories, tights- shoes – jewelery. But the one that has evolved a lot in my lifetime has got to be NAILS!
I remember my cousin going to nail school back when I was a teen in the 90s and I made her do my nails every time she came over, I had an extensive nail polish collection, and as this was the 90s there wasn’t too many nail decorations you could get back then to put on your nails – other than what the beauty supply stores offered, but I did with what I had.
Fastforward to 2013, and I am still obsessed, and always trying to expand my nail kit. Back on an older personal blog I kept, in early 2010 when I first moved to NYC I sent out craigslist ads to get hand models or just models to come to my house and let me do their nails.
Also here are some videos of a couple of them if pictures do not help :
So those are some basic nail designs, which I simply used a base coat, nail coloring of my choice, and a top coat. Nothing fancy unless you include the miniature nail pens.
What I’m getting at, is this is going to be a recurring feature here on Seven Minutes in Heaven! I will be showing you what new things I am adding to my kit, and hopefully Nicki will be my model so I can show you how to do some of the nail designs I come up with!
Here are some pictures of nail designs I have done on myself lately:
Stay tuned for more nail fun!
