My first step into rediscovering myself. hoping to one day possess the skills to such a beautiful art..
I am new to blogging and somewhat awkward, and don't know what to write. I love pretty things, like to see nail art and makeovers and such. I do intend to actually post my manicures as my skills improve with nail art and such, I might even start posting pics. But these will probably be sporadic and even pathetic attempts while I learn so ... Bear with me please. :)

Ideas/Tutorials

These are manis I like and think I may be able to do with my lack of experience. Of course, all the experienced polishers make all the styles look easy, so it may not turn out as well. But you gotta start somewhere right?  
Anyway, these pics do not belong to me, nor are the manis my work. I found these either on the web or in a blog. I will link back to any blog I borrow from. If they belong to you, and I do not have a link, please feel free to contact me to either supply a link or request the removal of your work. I am not trying to take credit for anyone's work, I just really like these manis and want to try them sometime in the future and have no better place to track them. :)
