Monday Manicure: Hopeless Romantic

And we’re back with another installment of Manicure Monday! This weeks theme is all about Runway Inspired Nails with Sally Hansen. There were quite a few trends I spotted while at New York Fashion Week, perhaps one of my favorite trends was black and white. I just loved how sexy it looked on the runway but I also loved the splashes of bold colors.

To get the supplies I needed I stopped by Walgreens to see what Sally Hansen had to offer. Sally Hansen has been running the I ♥ Nail Art Campaign so I already knew that they would have everything I needed. So many gorgeous spring colors, I didn’t know what to choose.

I decided to use pink to give it a more romantic field and as a way to knock out 2 trends at once.
