Today’s post is a DIY of sorts, but not really. What I mean is, I’ll show you how you can take your nails from janky to shiny in 5 minutes – no nail polish or manicure skills required.
First of all, I’d like to admit that I suck at manicures. My real nails are short, stubby, and brittle (see below). If my nails grow past that finger threshold, they are guaranteed to break, which is why for the most part, I don’t even try. Last year, I got some free samples of imPress Press-On Manicure kits, and my first reaction was: “Pfft, sticker nails? AS IF!” But then…I tried them!

My morning today was the opposite of good. Had to drag my butt out of bed extra early, so that I could stand in line for over an hour at some Civic Court, in order to set a trial date for my traffic infraction. Buckets of fun, right? Not!
Well, at least something made me smile this morning – these Prada Spring 2011-inspired nail designs by WAH Nails. What at first seemed like a pretty complex thing to do, turns out is super easy to recreate! All you need is: yellow nail polish, nail art pens in black and white, and a shiny top coat – c’est tout. If only getting Gwen Stefani’s “B-A-N-A-N-A-S” song out of my head was this easy.
