#manimonday – Gold foil

Happy Mani Monday one and all. This week’s #manimonday is a loud one. Almond nails, empty moons and gold, silver and green foil.

Happy summer time Mani Monday, one and all.  Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the nail art options out there? Ever want to mash multiple looks into one?

Give it at Tips Nail Bar, like our Danielle Morgan did when she went in to see Nargis Khan, one of their nail…

Avoid monotony by reversing your setup on an accent nail or totally inverting your two colours on…

For this mani we kept them smooth and round. Once your nail shape is good, even and smooth, make sure you paint them carefully. Clean off…
