latest and greatest

...manicure, that is. as you all know, i love doing my nails. one of these days i'm just going to open up my own salon where you can only get manicures, and your feet need to be out of sight! i can see it now: "Jess's salon rules: No shoes, No service!" now if only i could find a nail school where you don't have to deal with disgusting feet, then i could get all certified and stuff. anyways, sorry about the tangent.

usually every weekend i will do a new manicure. how interesting/detailed it is depends on how much time i have, and how lazy i'm feeling. i keep telling josh i need some sort of nail dryer/UV light so my nails will dry faster. that way the whole process would be so much faster! (note to self--add this to my christmas wishlist!)

this weekend i used my new ulta polish 'freshwater pearl' as the base, and then used tape to add ulta's polish 'little black dress'.  if you aren't familiar with using tape to get awesome manicures, you can look at this tutorial i did a couple years ago. after adding the diagonal half of black, i wanted to make one nail a little different. so after the polish dried, i put tape down going diagonally in the opposite direction, which left the little triangle of pink on top.

sorry for the slightly blurry ipod pic...

i think it turned out really cute, and i [vainly] love looking down and seeing this new manicure. what do you have on your nails right now? if you'd like, just come on over to Jess's Salon and i'll hook you up :)
