Crazy Kawaii or Die Nails

Over the years, I've accumulated quite the nail polish collection. More recently, I've added some of the items from my nail enthusiast gift guide to the mix. :) Despite my love of nail polish, I rarely take the time to actually use it. This year, that's going to change! As part of my organizing goal for 2015, I've scheduled at-home manicures for Wednesday nights (while Tal has his guilt-free game night). It's free (no additional cost) and every time I look at my painted nails, I smile. So... you can expect to see more nail looks on the blog here - I've even added a new "nails" button the sidebar. As an added bonus, hopefully I'll get better at painting my nails in the process!

This particular look was completely centered around the gorgeous "Kawaii or Die" glitter coat polish by Baroness X. I wanted it to be the focus, but also enjoy painting my nails different colors. So I selected colors that matched some of the glitter chunks and also had a chance to try out both my new nail stencils and new Baroness X "Mermaid Madness" polish!

This one took forever, but it was so much fun! This was my first time using Baroness X polish and I found it smooth and easy to use. :)
