Happy Birthday, Charlie! We are in love with you.

So, lately I’ve been obsessed with nail art. There seems to be a trend going around, and maybe I’m late to the party, but it’s a GREAT party. I always get a gel manicure before I go on vacation, and my friend recommended Vanity Projects before we went to Costa Rica – she had gotten some cool manicures there. Their Instagram is chock full:

For more simplistic yet still daring ideas, I foundĀ a spot called Paintbox that’s been getting a lot of hype:

A little more subdued, but still awesome!

And lastly, my friend Emily just told me about Ten Over Ten, which does nail art with regular nail polish (which Vanity Projects doesn’t like to do):
