Hey there Nail Enthusiasts!

Are you ready for another quick and easy fashion inspired nail art tutorial?  Well I hope so!  Today’s nails are inspired by the new 2014 Donna Karan Pre-Fall Collection!  This nail art requires absolutely NO special tools & NO coordination or steady hand.  A perfect look for any length nails, that can be painted in under 10 minutes flat!
On another note… in case you haven’t noticed, my nails happen to be much shorter than usual.  I happen to be training for a power lifting competition in February and in order for me to train without worrying about breaking a nail, I had to file down my pretty tips. 🙁  A little sad, yes i know.. but it had to be done.  All in the name of health, wellness & POWER LIFTING!!!  Yes, I might sound like a nut but it’s one of my favorite things to do.. besides painting my nails! 🙂

So, I hope you enjoy the tutorial… Oh, and I also included a video that breaks down each step for those of you who like video tutorials.
