My little manicure pays homage to two great blogging ladies, Greta Guide and Wendy Brandes, the queen of Minx manicures. See how the ring finger’s nail is different? That is lovely Greta’s trademark. It was a coincidence that they did them that way (it was a time issue), but shhh…I’ve actually copied her nail trend before.

This is only my second experience with Minx (I had a full set a year or so ago), but I think they are so much fun!

(p.s. Minx are little decals that are shaped and applied to your nails with heat)

    Ugh I wish I had more time to paint my nails! Mine are uber chipped yellow right now 😉 I know, attractive right? I wish I had leopard nails 😉

    Love and Turtledoves,

    this really makes me want to play about with nail art. when i was in america there was such a huge selection of diy nail art, but here in england there isn't much at all boooo

    I love that it's just on one nail, I feel like any more would be overkill. But instead it looks perfect :)

  17. Jonna says: May 21, 20107:20 pm

    This is so interesting! I love how only one finger is like that and others so simple.. Amazing!

  22. Alice In Fashionland says: May 22, 20103:28 pm

    That's pretty cool, I like that the ring finger is different!

  23. Greta says: May 22, 20108:50 pm

    Beautiful, well kept nails I believe says a lot about the person, and you can be proud of yours!
    You have a fabulous blog, really love your pics, and as I have said before, and the kind lady long before me, where you took the pics in the street with the short skirt, you are very pretty, I will not say pretty as hell, coz hell cannot be pretty. :-)
    Keep up the good work, you are doing very well.

    Hope the rest of your weekend is going to be great.
    Colin.

    Nice! I have seen this idea before and finally decided to try it (although less bold than your animal prints). I love it! Can't put my finger on why I love it so (no pun intended), but somehow it just works…

    such a clever idea! i hate nails that scream for attention, and this seems like a very subtle way to do something very interesting. well done!
    yours, rachel rose
    this is who we are

  27. Adri says: May 26, 201010:48 pm

    I've been meaning to try that and especially in the leopard pattern..but the look of just one in each hand is pretty fun

    Love your nails! Nail art is really cool. Currently mine are a color called Eggplant Frost. My left pinkie and right finger have nail art–little silver stars.
