Saturday, March 23, 2013


Hi followers,

I just wanted to write this to thank all the people that have followed me. I think I'm going to stop blogging for a while. I will probably have posts here and there. Mostly I have been uninspired lately and thinking of things to do with this blog is more stressful than I wanted. Plus with the announcement that google is taking down Reader kind of bums me out. I know there are other options but I haven't found one I like yet so that probably means those of you that follow me are having the same problem.

 I still do nail art when I can and my social media of choice now is my instagram. So please follow me there if you already aren't. Just be warned that it is about 98% nail art. The other 2% is random NPR stuff. That is also connected to my tumblr if you are on there, so whatever I post on instagram automatically gets posted there too. I have a twitter account but don't use it much but you can follow me there also. I'm also part of a bunch of nail groups on facebook so if you are too, you'll probably see me there also! So I'm not gone by any means, just from blogger :)

Thanks everyone!

March Nail Art Challenge

Hi everybody. It is March and I'm excited about it! March is my birthday month.

I feel like it has been forever since I last posted something and it probably has been. I have been spending most of my time on Instagram or Facebook but mostly Instagram. If you have an account, please follow me @smarifa! I'll follow you back!

So I am going to do a new nail art challenge by Californails. She makes a nail art challenge every month and it is pretty laid back.

So here is my first mani for chevron:
Yes this is mine, just watermarked with my instagram name. I'm too lazy to watermark it twice so I think I'm just going to keep it like this for now. I use an app called PicsArt on my phone if you are wondering!
This was partly inspired by Missy from Gnarly Gnails. She recently made her own decals and I used the same method for this. I painted black stripes on a plastic baggie. Once they were dry, I carefully peeled them off the baggie. Then I took pinking shears and cut small strips to put down on my nail.

The black and white is just Sinful Colors. The glitter is Hard Candy Cocoa Smore on top of Pure Ice Kiss Me Here. Cocoa Smore is a light milky brown color but I wanted it to be more grey so that's why I put it over Kiss Me Here.

Thanks for looking and reading!
