If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me post my nails from time to time. For years and years and years I bit my nails. Ewwww gross, right? It’s a bad, nervous habit for me and a few years ago I decided it needed to stop. I started going regularly to the nail salon because I knew that if I was going to pay to get my nails taken care of, I would NOT bite them and they would look nice. It worked. With the start of the new year I gathered some of my favorite nail tips. There are some cute designs, tricks and tools to use.

I love all these tips. I love to have my nails done, but it can get pricey so at home tips are a winner for me! The ikat, ice cream and heart designs are my favorites. I know what I’ll be doing this weekend :)
