Nail Tutorial // Scallops

I fell in love with all things scalloped in the Spring, and yes it’s now November, but I’m far from over it. 

After my last sassy mani, I decided to do something a bit sweeter. What do you think?

The colors above are both Essie. The base color is “Love and Acceptance” and the tip color is “Fiji”. 

  1. Paint your nails as usual, then with a toothpick or nail dotting tool, create small dots of paint
  2. Connect the dots toward the tip of the nail
  3. Spread the bubble of polish in a circular motion until your desired scallops are set
  4. Top coat (not pictured)

Stay sweet! AJ


Country Nails

I’m going to my first country concert everrr. Yes, ever.

I know what you’re thinking, and yes, it IS a miracle I’ve never seen Taylor Swift live. It’s equally surprising we’re not bffs. I will do her hair one day. You watch.

BUT, I’m not going to Taylor Swift, I’m going to Sugarland in a couple of weeks. Pretty excited for the whole sundress and cowgirl boots getup! I decided to find something to separate myself from the crowd… COUNTRY NAILS!
