birthday nails

after i wrote my it's okay post and realized that i had my nail polish on for 2 weeks,  i thought it was about time to change them. that week i received a very wonderful package with some nail decals from my wonderful friend over at lavender biscuit.
she gave me bird decals & succulent ones, both are so cute. so i tried my hand at then, super easy and instant cute nails! i think next time though i will paint my nails a color and then put the decal over them but i thought they were so cute and got tones of complements on the decals. (thanks ruth!)

does anyone else find it really hard to take pictures of their nails? they always look strange and make me laugh.

xo,

  2. Yes! I hate taking nail pictures. I think it's one of those angles that is just too weird taken by yourself. Those little birds are pretty damn cute. I want to see the cacti!

  3. Those decals are adorable! I love the polka dot you did to complement the decal. Very nice!

    I don't like taking pictures of my hands, because they end up looking like a giant's hands.

    1. I think nail pictures always look angry, or like claws! Haha

  4. Love it! The birds are so cool and yes, I agree, it can be so weird to take nail pics, hahaha! so glad to know that someone else thought that was weird too. :)
    I actually found an etsy shop that sells FRIDA nail decals and ordered some last week... I cannot WAIT to receive them and have frida nails.... although I doubt they will last since my nail art/polish chip and peel in about 30min ha!

  5. Everyone's pretty nail DIYs are making me want to paint my nails. I've only tried once and I think it makes my hands look weird. I have creepy stubby old man hands. Maybe it a light color they'd look better. I love your birdies!

    1. Ive learned what colors look good on my nails because if u try it for the first time and its a color that doesnt go well with your skin then i think it could totally turn you off. Try it!

  6. super cute! I wish I could polish my nails better than I can. My left hand always looks nice but my left hand looks like I polished it with my feet.

    PS Elfland is pretty good so far (Im only on chapter 3), but the writing is a little contrite. However one of the main male characters is named Jon so I just pretend its Jon Snow and picture him in the book....that may be an over share....but if I cant over share with you, who can I over share with!?

  7. Those are so fun! If I ever painted my nails I'd definitely use those. I don't know why I don't paint my nails, I just never really have been into it. I think the drying part takes too long for me, which is pathetic because it's not actually all that long.

  10. I love them, so cute! The sun has finally come out here so I'm painting my toenails pale green. Taking photos of hands full stop is crazy hard! I would find it easier to take pictures of my nails if my cuticles were in a better state tho, haha! :) xo

  11. These are so cute! I'm so sad that I can't participate in the Shabby Apple give-away, I love their dresses, but I'm in Europe, so no dress for me :-(

  14. That's so cute! And I agree, it's so hard to photograph your nails without them looking like claws or old granny's nails, ha ha!
