The Nail Files

It's been a while since I've linked up. And, to be honest, I've not done a whole lot with my nails lately. There just hasn't been time...and I needed some bare nails for a bit (GASP!).

But, I broke out the nail art this week, so I thought I'd share what my nails were like for the majority of the week!

The inspiration (from my pinterest and this website):

The execution:
Two coats Ulta Glam Session on all nails.

The "tail" of the star is from my silver nail art lining polish. The stars are nail stickers I've had for a couple years. They were a pain in the tuckus! The didn't bend very well, so they didn't fold down on to the nail. Which translates to sharp corners and a butt-load of topcoat around them to kind of "smooth" them out and make them stay. It worked, too. The first star fell off in the shower on Wednesday...after being on since Sunday.

This weekend I'm going to Comic-Con in San Diego with Mr S (his early birthday present). I'm planning an Avengers theme for my nails. Stay tuned to next week to see what happens!


  1. They looked great! What a bummer about the sticker, though. Booo!! I can't wait to see your Avengers theme!! Have a great time at Comic-Con!! (I'm SO jealous!) Thanks for linking up! :)

  2. Wow, that's an incredible idea! Love it!!
