NAILING YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Staying comfortable for some means maintaining everything just the way we like it. No deviations, variations or surprises! 

I don’t make a fuss with my nails, but I also like a little glamor from time to time. For a while, I couldn’t find the balance. I used to think nail art only existed in two extremes: dull and plain or bold and dramatic. And because neither extreme was for me, I eliminated nail polish completely.

But, after being introduced to a few fun and minimalistic styles, your girl came around, and now has a few go-to nail styles that are nailing my comfort zone!

White Nails have been deemed the official “baddie” nail that anyone can take part in. I love it because it strikes a balance of simplicity with a message of sophistication and freshness. If I want to take it a step further, I add press-on nails for rich pigment. These Static Nail press-ons from Ulta are my go-to if I want that extra sass.

Simple lines are proof that it doesn’t take a lot to make a statement, which is what I love in a look. Whether you choose a pastel palette or to color block, painting lines over a french manicure creates an easy elevated nail. GLOSSLAB specializes in simplistic nail design that’s just up my alley.

Nail Stickers and Appliques are a simple and quick way to enhance a look. Whether you attach them on top of a design or on your plain nail plate, there are so many cute and fun ways to use stickers to be playful but stay true to your comfort levels. I find some of my favorite nail stickers and appliques in the aisles of Ulta. I can’t decide which one I love the most!

Exploring simple nail designs has been one of the favorite parts of nailing down my personal style, and, who knows, there may be some more nail art to explore in the future!
