Painted Digits (+ Links!)

(above images via: WeHeartIt)

I loved painted nails. I don't love the actual process of painting nails---I'm quite awkward and clumsy at it. But the result is so worth it. I love having a flash of color on my fingertips to show off. (Too bad I work with a cash register and have to re-paint them every other day because of handling money. Coins chip polish terribly no matter how much I topcoat 'em.)

I'm currently addicted to a bold, metallic turquoise-blue that I have on both my fingers and toes. My go-to colors are matte hot pink and shiny classic red. I tried black for a while, but it wasn't for me. Some nail polish shades on my "to-find" list include: a pale ballerina pink, the perfect nude, and a deep raspberry.

College Fashion published a great post about the 5 Nail Polish Colors Every Girl Should Own. Classic red? Check. Pretty pink? Check. (My personal favorite is titled "Flirty Pink.") No-Nonsense Neutral? Need to get. Mysterious dark color? I have a beautiful deep wine that I love to wear in winter. And color that just makes me happy? Definitely the turquoise I'm currently donning. Click here to check out the full article.

If I didn't have to go through the actual process of painting them, I'd have mine painted all the time! I just hate that you do them and then a few days later they are all chipped and then you have a start over. :/ My favorite of the examples up top is the last one. I love the french tip done in black. :D Very cute.
