more freehanded nail art: one of my favorites

I hope everyone is having a great October! I love fall. Well, technically, it's still summer here. California's idea of October: 80 degrees F.

I've been in love with baking lately. Cakes, pies, cookies... but my favorite to make so far has been French macarons! I'd be happy to post some pics and recipes if anyone would like that! :)

This mani was done maybe a month ago. It took a while, but I LOVED it. I'm glad I took the time to freehand the stripes rather than just Konad them. I know, I know, stop talking and get to the pictures!

I used:
Zoya Lolly
Milani Nail Art in Black Sketch

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone is well- I've missed you guys!


  1. your Free hand on this manicure is amazing looks so much better than stamping would. So jealous, I don't think I could ever get zebra stripes to look that good!

  2. You have some serious talent, girl. SO jealous. Come over and do my nails plz :)

    Also, I'd love for you to post some recipies! I also love baking!

  3. I've had Lolly sitting around for months but haven't used it yet! Maybe that'll be my next after seeing this post. Mitzi and Phoebe didn't cooperate too well with me!

  6. Wow, it looks really gorgeous!
    And I would also love to see some pics and recipes! :-)

  7. Freehand is so much better than Konad. I kinda feel like Konad is cheating, although it can also make amazing manis.
    Loved the colors together!

  14. Dear Wife,
    I check your blog every other day in hopes of a new post as i would hope your 1447 followers to do as well. I sit here i think when will she post something new, maybe a actual long post based on her hobby which seems to be baking at the moment or fuse together make up nails and baked goods. anyways not to sound mean or rude but you're fuckin' slacking. I Love You. i think i speak for all your bloggers when i say post more for the sake of our interest and for the sake of me having a convenient website to see the wife's creativity from Afghanistan in my free time since you never send me pictures :/, But that's besides the point you're busy i know but when you're busy it consists of your hobbies so do us all a favor and take some pictures and 30 min of your times to upload lay down some text so we have something to do. Love, Christian aka your husband
