A year of @beautylookbook instagram nail polishes:
Due to popular request, I'm working on a hand and nail care post. I'm constantly asked whether my manicures are self-applied or done by a professional. I would say the split is about 60/40 for self/professional. I'm getting things organized to write a post about all of my staples and tips. Bottom line is that tons of practice helps. You can see (and perhaps laugh or cringe) at my self-applied manicures from 2009 here or 2010 here and compare it to this year's self-applied swatching in 2013 here. I am still a total 100% fail when it comes to self-applied pedicures. If you have tips I'd love to hear them!
