Pedicure Must Haves for Perfect Toes

Pefect Pedicure Must Haves - Longing 4 Length (2)

Hallelujah its officially springtime!  I can't speak for readers in other countries but here in the US we had a horrific winter.  We had record breaking low temperatures, tons of snow and ice storms and overall just an awful season.  I already hate winter (except for the holidays) and the fact that the cold just kept dragging on and on made it worse.  Now that April is here - its time to break out my pedicure must haves, these keep my toes … [Read more...]

Manicure Mania! Tons of Nail Art

nails nail art manicures

I've fallen back into my old tricks - posting pics of my manicures each week on Instagram (@EbonyCPrincess) but not sharing with you here.  So I decided to do a massive collective post showing all of the manicures I've done from the past couple of months.  Get ready....here it go! As you can see, I've truly been feeling dotticure nails!  I'm trying to tell you, a set of dotting tools only costs around $1 (including shipping) and the … [Read more...]

A Different Kind of Gradient Nails!

Gradient-Nails-Tutorial-5

It's been way too long since I've shared nail photos, let alone a tutorial!  With the advent of the almighty Instagram, I'm just more apt to snap a quick pic with my cell phone and share than to upload here to the blog!  Which is really sad because I like sharing my thoughts on my various manicures, my impressions and opinions about the polish and of course tutorials!  Today's nail art is another gradient nails tutorial, but different than the … [Read more...]

Neon Abstract Nail Art Tutorial

neon abstract nail art tutorial

This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite nail art designs to date!!!  It was inspired by a nail tech I follow via Instagram (NailsbyS0phia) - her design was soooooo flyy, I immediately took a screen shot.  For some reason I am really in love with using this neon yellow color as an accent - with everything from earrings to shoes and clutch bags, and I feel these nails set off any outfit!  I felt a lil like an Around the Way Girl with such … [Read more...]

Orly Glowstick Review – Neon Nail Polish at Its Best!

Orly Glowstick

This nail polish is so fabulous I had to give a full Orly Glowstick review!!!  I didn't jump full force on the neon nail polish train last year - it seemed like every major brand released a neon collection.  I passed on most because usually neon polishes are a huge disappointment.  They require a ba-zillion-ka-jillion coats to be opaque and normally need to be layered over a white polish.  I bought two neon polishes when Ulta had a BOGO sale … [Read more...]

Springtime Watercolor Nail Art Tutorial

watercolor nail art tutorial

I had caught a few watercolor nail art tutorials around the web for the past several months or so before finding a technique that was quick and easy enough for me to try.  In general, I don't like complicated nail art - although I'm sure some of you may beg to differ.  This was my first time doing watercolor nails, and I only wore them while on vacation, but I must say I did like the look and I'm sure my next attempt will be even better. … [Read more...]

Henna Inspired Nail Art Tutorial

henna inspired nail art

How much do you love this henna inspired nail art?!  I'll be honest, it isn't very easy to do but compared to the intricacies of most actual henna designs, I think it is very straightforward and simple.  I love the results and I can't count the number of compliments and comments I received on my nails while wearing it.  It is difficult to explain how to do this design so check out the tutorial below.  Don't worry - I walk you through it … [Read more...]

Dotticure Nails

dotticure nails

I've been truly slacking on taking pics of my manicures each week and even if I do, the pics never seem to make it to the blog!  If you follow me on Instagram @EbonyCPrincess, you have a better chance of seeing my current nail polish.  And even there, I've been off my game!  A couple of weeks ago I had the BOMB purple polish with a fishtail accent nail and I have no photos!  By the time I thought about it, the mani had lost its luster and I … [Read more...]
