Mad Men Nail Art

Mad Men Nail Art

Today is the Mad Men finale. I've been rewatching episodes all week, mostly my favorites and whatever episode is on AMC when I turn on the television. I've always wanted to try Mad Men inspired nail art so I finally sat down and did it!


I knew it'd be a bit of a challenge. I looked around Pinterest for ideas and the one that inspired me the most was by NailNerd.com. I used it as a guide for my thumbnail on which I painted the businessman that you see falling in the opening title sequence. I used a toothpick to paint it. It's not as good as the Nail Nerd's work but I'm happy with it!  I changed it up a bit by doing a martini glass on one finger and a tux nail on another.  I also painted my pinky nail red and added some pearls. It'd been a while since I've done more complicated nail art- it was fun for me! 


So now my nails and I are ready for tonight's episode!  I'm looking forward to watching the Mad Men finale but I'm a little sad too.  I've enjoyed watching all these characters and their stories and am sad to see it come to an end!

Springtime Flower Nail Art using Pure Ice Happy Hour Polish

 Springtime Flower Nail art using Pure Ice "Happy Hour" polish

It's springtime which means bright colors and flowers!  I did this flower nail art for Easter this year.  I used a nail polish I recently bought called "Happy Hour" by Pure Ice and I absolutely love the color.  It's a very pretty shade of coral. I found it for less than $2 at Walmart. I liked the color so much that I didn't add anything to it for a few days until right before Easter which was when I added the flower on the ring finger.

I look forward to using this polish for other manicures! It's perfect for spring and has a perfect name too!  :)

Nails Inspired by Chip from Beauty and the Beast


For this year's spring Dapper Day at Disneyland I wore a look inspired by Belle of Beauty and the Beast.  To go with it, I used a tutorial posted on Disney Style to paint my nails to look like Chip from the movie.  I didn't like the outlining so I skipped that part.  I was in a rush to do them because I picked my outfit at the last minute due to weather but I think they still came out okay!  I hope to try it again sometime! 

Here's how it looked with the rest of my outfit.  You can kind of see my nails in the photo below:
