How bout them cowboys?

Being from Texas, I have a soft spot for Clint Eastwood, cowboy boots, Southern accents, and of course football. Today, I included some cowboy inspired manicures I’ve done lately. I’m sure these won’t be the last.

Texas stamp

I used Layla Hologram Effect 02 Coral Glam with Konad plate s5 for this one. This plate is adorable!

Cowboy stamp

This was with Zoya Tiffany with Cheeky plate CH34. It didn’t turn out exactly how I liked it. It’s hard to make out the cowboy on the horse. Instead, it looks like a houndstooth print.

cheeky summer collection

I love the packaging of the Cheeky summer collection. It comes with a little card that can be used instead of the scraper for stamping nail art. I’ll post some nail art from it soon!

Glitter French Manicure

I have a love/hate relationship with French manicures. I can’t decide if they’re classy or kind of garish. Instead of letting people wonder if I am trying to be sophisticated, I decided to learn towards tacky and go all out with the glitter.

I hate how fast a French manicure usually chips on me so I decided to do a gel manicure with Gelish polishes from Sally beauty. I have thin nails that peel easily, so I like gel manicures because they make my nails hard enough so they can grow out. I do my own with a UV lamp from and Gelish or CND polishes.
