A year of @beautylookbook instagram nail polishes:

Due to popular request, I’m working on a hand and nail care post. I’m constantly asked whether my manicures are self-applied or done by a professional. I would say the split is about 60/40 for self/professional. I’m getting things organized to write a post about all of my staples and tips. Bottom line is that tons of practice helps. You can see (and perhaps laugh or cringe) at my self-applied manicures from 2009 here or 2010 here and compare it to this year’s self-applied swatching in 2013 here. I am still a total 100% fail when it comes to self-applied pedicures. If you have tips I’d love to hear them!

    I can do a pedi and dark nail polish mani quite well, it's the lighter color nail polish that send me running to a professional. I'm looking forward to your nail post.

    A good mix of neutrals and deep colours – especially like the Tom Ford Polish x

    I have the most days of the week nailpolish on my nails. So I like this great pictures all about nailpolish 😉 The t.f. looks nice and also pink and purple.
    Did you have ever gold nailpolish on your nails? 😉
