The Beauty Buffs - Nautical/Beach Trend Nail Art

Nothing to Disclose

Hello, all! I'm glad to be back posting after my brief hiatus to celebrate my sister's birthday over the weekend...and what better way to get back into nail art than with another Beauty Buffs week! The ladies and I are attempting the 'Nautical/Beach' theme that has been so popular for so long.

Shockingly, I think this might be my first ever nautical look! I really love nautical looks in my personal life (I have planners, clothing, accessories, etc) that are nautical themed, but for some reason that trend has yet to transition over to my nail art. Today that changes! ;)

The Digital Dozen does Countries & Cultures - Day 5: Tuscany Landscape Nail Art

Nothing to Disclose

Whew! I may be slightly late, but I've finally finished another challenge week with my favorite nail ladies of the Digital Dozen! I always forget just how challenging it really is to come up with 5 manis inspired by one theme. This countries and cultures week was tough but I really love what I managed to come up with this week :)

For the final day, I've got a mani inspired by the beautiful Tuscany landscape of Italy! I've had a deep seated love of Italy for as long as I can remember. My grandmother's aunt (my great aunt?) went to Italy when she was in college way back when on a foreign exchange program, and, as these things go, she met an Italian street artist, fell in love, and has been there ever since! I've visited them twice over the years and I have such fond memories of being there!
