Since the famous italian fashion house doesn’t make nail decals, we figured we’d give “Missoni Nails” a shot! While doing these nails, I discovered my new favorite nail decorating tool: THE GREASE PENCIL!

There are so many fun nail trends today that it makes you want to change things up… a lot! In this tutorial, we show you how to give yourself a perfectly polished, natural manicure that looks lovely and allows your nails to breathe. Always clean your tools properly before you begin.
Photos + post design by Kristin Ess While you’re all probably busy decking the halls right now, perhaps you’ll be able to take a break to get fancy, festive + fun with this manicure tutorial from Lady Conrad! She wanted to string some lights across her nails and so she did… Literally! Here’s how she created these lil’ cuties: TOOLS: base & top coat, green polish & red polish (you can use any colors you want), white or off-white polish, cuticle nippers or small scissors, black cotton string, a small brush or pointed q-tip. On clean nails, do a solid coat (or two thin coats) of white or off white polish.

photos + post by Kristin Ess First of all, sorry for the lack of posts this week. By now you know that Lady Conrad has a brand new book called THE FAME GAME . We joined her on her book tour and that busy schedule left little time for much else.
