Instagram update

My friend Alyson convinced me to start using Instagram.  I have been sucked in and that is where I have spent most of my time.  If you are on it and want to check mine out, you can find me at @creativenaildesignbysue.  If you are on and want me to heck YOU out, leave your handle in the comment section. 

I have begun to realize how much I hate the blogging part of nail art blogging. You probably notice, I rarely post more than one picture each time.  I find the process of editing and posting the least interesting.  Instagram gives me the opportunity to post the manicures that I do between blog posts.    I generally change my manicure every other day.  Some are simple and others are more complex. 

I do, however, have followers who aren't on Instagram so I am keeping the blog.  I will continue with my regular nail art challenges and will post on those but I also will post regular picture posts of the manicures that you don't get to see from Instagram.  So, take a look at what I have been up to.....

 This is Illamasqua Muse with a reverse glitter gradient of Oh Teally from Amy's Nail Boutique

 OPI I Vant To Bite Your Neck topped with Nubar Flakies

 One coat of White Owl Lacquers Kittens and Teacups over Milani White on The Spot
 This was an experiment that turned out awesome.  It is three layers of Neon Jelly by Amy's Nail Boutique with a stamp using Konad white three times in between the layers.

A skittle manicure using ManGlaze Matte is Murder and Mink Mitten

Mentality polish gregarious with an accent of quilted nails in Zoya Barbie.

And....another skittle manicure using Zoya Monica and Neely.


  1. I'm sad to hear that you don't like the blogging part of nail blogging! I always like to read a bit about the process and formulas. But I also like instagram and I can see the appeal :)

  2. Oooh, I love the jelly/stamp sandwich. It's been on my list to try forever!
