Choose a blue and nude shade and see my previous post here to see how to do a half moon using stickers from the drug store!

MONTHLY OBSESSION

When it comes to nails, I always gravitate towards the same thing: bright on my toes and light on my fingers.  But I typically stick to light pinks or bright orangey-reds.  I always like the way nude colors look on other people but I have a hard time finding the right shade for my skin tone. Everything was either too light or too (for lack of a better word)…nude, for my medium-toned skin.  I recently discovered Chanel’s polish in ‘Frenzy‘.  It’s a beige-grey that’s neither too yellow or too pink – the perfect neutral that looks good for all seasons.
