I did a guest post this week for nerdyfleurty!

Alternately titled “second time’s the charm.” Basically I tried to do a design very similar to this a few weeks ago but I wasn’t feeling it so I didn’t post it. Much happier with this version!
Yesterday was my 19th birthday so I did this design to celebrate! I didn’t really want to do something typically birthday themed so I combined my love of gradients, tribal designs and new polish (Essie’s Mochacino - it’s got a subtle shimmer just like Naughty Nautical!) to create this subtle birthday design!

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!
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!
I can’t even remember the last time I did a design with a pastel colour palette but I’ve remedied that this week with this super cute Molang design!
Today I have some silver rhinestones to review. I’m not going to lie, I literally spent over an hour trying to figure out just what to do with these rhinestones. In the end I decided on this super cute design!
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.
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.
