After a few failed attempts in creating a pretty spring manicure  I came across these matte nails.

I love the green it’s a nice change to my favorite Essie polish in licorice and I just bought Revlon’s matte  polish.  I figured this a nice way to ease myself into an actual manicure and I’m pretty sure I can handle this one. 🙂

Manic Mani Monday

I’m determined to give myself a decent mani and have been looking everywhere for easy DIY tutorials and inspirations.  I’ve never had the patience to sit down and try to do anything other than a basic two coat mani, but the nail craze has bitten me and I’m on a mission!  Below are some of my favorites that I’ve yet to try, but when I do if (and it’s even half way decent) I will definitely post about it. 🙂

Simple, pretty and sparkly!

One of my favorite bloggers love Maegan real dried flowers is gorgeous!  I’d like to try this but only on my ring and pinky finger.

I love stripes and this would be so cool but I’d try it on a pedicure because IMO it’s a bit busy for a manicure.

I’m totally obsessed with metallics so this easy tutorial is a must!
