The Old But New Nail Art Trend

I remember the first time I got my nails done at a nail salon and believe it was Love at first sight. It was for my 16th birthday and felt like my transition into womanhood. It was with false nails and acrylic powder and the process was a long one, but the best part of it all was choosing the final representation of your hands for the next two weeks and it was worth it. The possibilities are truly endless and the fun is unlimited for the creative types. Nowadays the process has been refined to be a little speedier and there is a gel manicure alternative which is more durable compared to the traditional manicure option and healthier for your nails than the acrylic option. I want to showcase  the many variations within the nail art community and hope it gives you inspiration to express your own individual personality.

You have so many choices on the shape of the nail…

I realize nail art can become quite expensive with a trip to the salon every two to three weeks so I thought of something for that…I buy a complimentary color nail polish for my at home pedicures. It cuts the cost down a little without totally neglecting your toes and you get to build your polish collection. The name of this polish is called “Raisin The Bar” #207 from Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Collection for just $8 at any drugstore or grocery store.
