Hawaiian Shirt Inspired Manicure


I’m so excited– “Weird Al” Yankovic announced his tour, and he’s actually playing here! So, when I went to buy my tickets at a pre-sale, you bet I did up my nails proper with this Hawaiian shirt-inspired manicure! I started with a white base (Sally Hansen Insta-Dry White Pick-It Fence) and sponged on some colourful […]
