‘kiss me I’m Irish’ week: a festive manicure.

it’s fun to coordinate your nails to reflect your mood, the season, or ..the upcoming holiday. which is in fact what I did. with a little inspiration from the flag of Ireland.

[my tip: if you need a particular nail color for a special occasion and you don’t think it’ll be a frequent visitor to your nails. like orange is for me. get it in an inexpensive brand. try forever 21’s selection].

drumrollllllllllll, please.




[J] & I have opened our very own etsy store!!!


[emphasis on [J]. he’s the creator. I’m the assistant-ish].

it all started with a custom wedding gift we created for our friends. I am more appreciative of personal/meaningful gift giving. so we put our brains together & [J] concocted a gorgeous, custom made print. I died when I saw the finished product. it even received a few happy tears from the bride. mission accomplished.
