Mani Monday

Happy Monday! last week you guys did some seriously great work - I'm stoked to see what's linked up this week!

I was lucky enough to get to check out a local nail salon - TL Nails, which is known for their nail art. (Check out some pictures HERE!) The salon was clean and cute, and the staff was incredible friendly! I brought my own colors - Alicia and Robin by Julep and knew I wanted some fun leopard art, and I'm obsessed with how they turned out!

I brought my own toe color, too but after seeing what Kathy, who was doing my nails was wearing on hers I decided to switch. I went with Orly Glowstick, with a hot pink and purple leopard print. (Hint: to make your neon nail polish really pop, do one coat of white underneath it.)  So, I know toe pictures are kind of weird, but they're so fun that I wanted to show them off....hope you don't mind!


If you're anywhere near Livermore you must check out TL Nails - they do amazing work, and I promise you'll be happy you went!

Last week you all linked up some incredible manis, and I'd like to show off Franissh's gorgeous striped mani! After seeing it I immediately went to ebay and bought THIS striping tape kit (SO cheap!)



























And now it's your turn to link up!! Heather and I can't wait to see what pretties you've come up with! After you link, don't forget to check out some of the other fabulous links, and we'd love it if you grabbed a button!

Happy Mani Monday!

Thanks for posting where you found the tape, I was so curious where that came from. Your nails are TooCute! Love your color choices!

DYING over your toes!!!

I love your mani/pedi! The colors you chose are perfect too. I've been wanting to get a Konad stamper to do leopard print nails, I wish I could just freehand it, but alas, that would just be one hot mess.

That's too funny, I too ordered striping tape from eBaY recently and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival! Great minds think alike!

LOVE your mani/pedi! I never do designs on my pedis, but this inspires me!
