Pretty frickin’ sweet, huh?

MAD MANI: Glittering Coral Digits

Welcome to Mad Mani! Every other Wednesday, we’ll be sharing the wicked-cool manicures (and pedicures) we’re seeing across the World Wide Web.

Our current favorite manicure is this one, which we’re calling Glittering Coral Digits. Again, we’re not sure whose handiwork this is; we found it on Pinterest, as we do most things these days, and there wasn’t a source.

Know whose genius this is? Please let us know!

To recreate the look, use China Glaze Coral Star nail polish ($5 on Amazon) and Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Boom Boom Pow ($21 on Beauty Collection).

MAD MANI: Pink Ombre Nails

Welcome to Mad Mani! Periodically, we’ll be sharing the really wicked-cool manicures (and pedicures) we’re seeing across the World Wide Web. Today’s pick? Pink ombre nails.

We saw this mani on Pinterest and following the links to the original tutorial. Sammy over at The Nailasaurus created this mani and posted step-by-step instructions on her website. Check out TheNailasaurus.com for the how-to. These nails are insanely pretty and we’re dying to try it.

And be sure to check out The Nailasaurus’ other tutorials.

MAD MANI: The Neon Jackson Pollack

Welcome to Mad Mani! Periodically, we’ll be sharing the really wicked-cool manicures (and pedicures) we’re seeing across the World Wide Web. Today’s pick? Something we’re calling “The Neon Jackson Pollack.”

While we found the picture and super simple directions on Pinterest, we believe the originator of the Neon Jackson Pollack mani posted it to Beautylish in the first place. But we can’t find that original tutorial, so this will just have to suffice:

Directions:

1. White Base Color

2. Place small dots of colored polish in corner of nail.

3. Spread colored polish dots outward with a toothpick.

4. Apply topcoat.

Enjoy!
