Nail Ideas + Inspiration

December 13, 2015

So I'm planning on getting my nails done for the first time soon and I have no idea what to expect lol. I have a general idea of what kind of nail design and shape I want but I'm torn between so many looks at the same time! And of course to help me with my small dilemma I went to Pinterest and Tumblr for some nail ideas.  

M A U V E / N U D E 
This is probably one of my top favorite pictures in this collection of photos I have for you guys. I love the polish color and although I never thought I would like the almond shape, this picture makes me feel some type of way lol. . 
 I'm also attracted to the "coffin" or "ballerina" shape as well, which is one of the shapes I'm torn in between. It's either the almond, coffin, or square shape. I did like the stiletto style for a little bit and I enjoyed the thought that if I were to ever be attacked by someone, having actual "claws" to scratch someone's face off (if need be) was somewhat reassuring. But for my first time getting my nails done I want to go a more "natural" route before experimenting with unnatural shapes.

While I'm always more towards a neutral palette I loooooove dark nails and this color is absolutely stunning. If I were to just have a YOLO moment I feel this would be the first color I go to. 

Speaking of dark colors, this picture is tempting me so hard to go for a red and this length looks daring but it adds some glam to your hands, if that makes any sense.  

F I N A L V E R D I C T ? 
Overall I think I am really leaning towards the picture above. I love the color, shape, and just about everything about this nail look.  I think I may go a little shorter in terms of length but if you can't already tell, I am no where near making final decision on how to get my nails done. I know it's not necessarily a big deal, but I just don't want my first time to be a bad experience (considering it's probably going to be expensive too, I want my money's worth lol)
Agh. I don't know.

What are some of your guy's favorite nail colors, nail polish brands, and nail style? Also what are some good nail salons you guys would recommend in your area?
