Manicure inspiration

Photo: Love my manicure!
The first photo is a manicure I admired on twitter from the singer Tamia. The bottom photo is my manicure that I got today. I love it. I get a lot of ideas from magazines, tv, and online on fashion, decorating, etc. It is really fun to get inspiration from others and put your own spin on it. I even people watch at the mall sometimes and get great ideas for my next outfit or hairstyle. Who or what most inspires you?

Red carpet Manicure

I couldn’t sleep last nite and I saw an informercial on Red Carpet Manicure. It is an at-home gel nail kit. The manicure is said to dry quickly and last up to two weeks. The cost was two payments of $39.99 + S&H. The kit is also sold at Ulta (the basic starter kit is $59.99). Please leave a comment if you have tried this manicure brand. Here is the link from ulta, which includes reviews: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2239297&productId=xlsImpprod3920255&navAction=push&navCount=1&subdoc=11redcarpetmanicurewk3211&categoryId=cat80045%20cat80068

Cute Nail Tips

I love getting mani/pedi’s, but i can’t always get there nor do I always want to spend the money. I just discovered e-bay has very nice nail tips, for very little money. Most of the listings are from Hong Kong or China, so I always make sure to use a top-rated seller or use only shops that others suggest and have dealt with in the past. This allows doing your own nails for little expense and at your own convenience. Also, youtube.com has tons of tutorials on doing manicures if you are challenged.
