This Tumblog is dedicated to my long time obsession with nails that go beyond the classic french manicure.

It all began one summer while working as a receptionist at Foxy Nails in the local mall during college. Spoiled with free manicures and crazy designs, my then infatuation blossomed into an obsession, as visions of nail designs continue to dance in my head.

This blog is for all the folks who appreciate a nice clean manicure with the freshest nail design you ever saw...starring my friends, myself and anyone else on the street rockin' them Tips & Toes that are more than worthy. Enjoy...

I’ve been hearing a lot about Marie Nails in the Los Angeles area and their use of CalGel nails with designs. 
I had to move my stuff into storage and my nails took a HARD beating. Called and went to a few of the Marie Nails salons with NO luck on getting an appointment. I did go on a waiting list and BAM, got in. 
I am going to be out of town for a while, so I wanted a gradient neutral nail with the ability to not have a noticeable grow out since It might be a month before I can go back. 
Katie at the Harper location fixed me up well with a glittery job. I LOVE IT.

I’m pretty sure a lot of people have done this before! I used small paintbrushes on this (this was two years ago, and there weren’t any pens yet from where I come from).

A little something I did for UN day back in 2008 (along with 9 other flags which were easier to paint). Guess where I’m from? :3

It’s quite messy, though it’s relatively easy to do. I used a small paintbrush for the sun and the stars.

For some reason I had a really hard time taking a pic of my nails. 
So, to clarify, I used a bright orange creme color as the base. A stroke of a slightly iridescent fuchsia. Last a gold pen for the dots. 
I wanted bright colors again for summer and this has sort of a South Asian feel to it.
I tried Sephora’s top coat and it’s super shiny!

I’m currently into China Glaze nail polish. I’m a newb when it comes to nails, so for the brush and the money, I think it is good. 
This green is called Paper Chase. I also bought Sally Hansen Nail Art pen in black to do the random polka dots. I wanted to do something more intricate. but I discovered I’m not THAT ambidextrous.

Just some fun experimenting to bring in the first day of Summer. I still have to work on it, but I love the pink/orange combo.
