Not-Your-Average-Nails

Apple of my Eye

Oh look, I’m doing fruit designs again! I’ve been wanting to do this design for months but waited because I thought it would be more seasonally-appropriate in the fall.

In other news, today (October 1st) is the 2 year anniversary of the blog! So thanks to all of you for sticking with me over the past two years, it means so much to me!

Autumn Leaves

It’s officially fall again which means it’s time for me to break out some of the autumn-inspired designs I’ve been putting off since summer!
This particular design is inspired by this lovely print that I’ve been wanting to turn into a nail design for months!

Boxed In

I’m taking inspiration from everywhere for this design. The scaled gradient is inspired by simplynailogical and the square borders are inspired by mrcandiipants. Both are super talented artists whose work I highly admire.

I’m also reviewing the guides from Born Pretty that I used for the gradient. You can check out the full review below and remember that you can use the code FHX31 for 10% off at BPS!

Product Review: Wave French Tip Guides

Welcome to this week’s edition of BPS product reviews! As always, you can check out their nail art section for the product I’m reviewing as well as other cool items.

Today I have some french tip guides to review. I had a plan on what to do with them from the beginning - a scaled gradient! I’m probably a little late to this trend, but I just had to try it out myself and this was the perfect opportunity.
