Mauve & Pink Nails

I’ve always been a bit confused about what the color “mauve” is. According to Wikipedia (because they have an article on Mauve), it can be considered a dirty pink and a shade of purple. Apparently, this particular mauve is a “mauve taupe” color.

By the way, I always thought mauve was pronounced “mahv,” but it’s a french word, so it’s actually pronounced “mohv,” like rhymes with “grove.” Silly French!

The pink on the outside is my Tropical Fiesta from Milani. I just used scotch tape. Did them at work, what’s new.

So, there you have it, a lesson on the color mauve and an interesting color combo for Spring/Summer nails. You like?

Dandelion Nails

Oh, lucky lucky US! The darling Anna has once again given us the pleasure of an adorable nail design! It has come perfectly in time for Spring. I must try this!

I started with plain mint green nail polish and let it dry completely on my nails.

Then on my thumb I painted what should look like a stem for a dandelion in black with a nail art brush.

After which I simply added white little “seeds” to my other fingers like I had blown the dandelion and the seeds had floated to my other fingers!

Keep in mind you can use whatever colors you want and that it’s not hard to paint lines all over your fingers! It’s simple but looks cute when you’re finished!
