kate spade – new york

My iPhone needs its own “case closet”.  Like a shoe rack. Or a wardrobe.

I didn’t realize the extent of my foolishness until I received my new case in the mail… that I forgot I had ordered… because I already had 6 cases that I wasn’t using.    And yes, I have had my new iPhone for approximately 3 (count them: one, two, three..) weeks. 

But I NEEDED this case!!!


Okay, okay.  I know “need” is relative. 
This gave me the perfect motivation to try out this “border nails” nail trend in the process.

I started with China Glaze – “White On White”

I didn’t have a perfect color match to the case’s pink trim. So, I made my own. *shrugs* 
I blended an even ratio (1:1) of Sinful Colors – “Boom Boom” & “24/7” and used a size “0” nail art brush to outline my nail.


I knew it was a completely successful manicure when the cashier at Whole Foods commented that she loved how my nails matched my phone!  Nail art wins again :-).

    Wow! I’ve always wanted to try the manicure with the polish circling the outside like that but didnt think it was gonna turn out right…I just make try it soon…

    • Hi Jazmine!! (LOVE your blog!! – now following on bloglovin!) 🙂

      The border nail was easier than I thought, but still took some effort and focus on keeping my hand steady. But it’s a really nice look! I hope to see your results soon!!
