Guest Post from The Dalai Lama's Nails

I meant to have this posted Monday, however wine trips are not conducive to blogging--but check out my nails from Saturday on instagram!

Make sure you enter my First Blogiversary Celebration Giveaway if you haven't already. It ends November 2nd, tell a friend!

Today I have a guest post from The Dalai Lama's Nails! I have to say I feel a special affinity to this blog name. My birthday is April 8th and this is also the accepted birthday of the Buddha. And so, my high school World History teacher (who was totally awesome) dubbed me "The Shelby Lama." It almost became my blog name. When it came time to ask for guest posts I knew I had to ask this amazing lady, and I almost fell off my chair when she had the time to accept. Hannah is one of the bloggers I go to for amazing freehand nail art and today she does not disappoint!


Hi there everybody! My name is Hannah, and I blog over at The Dalai Lama's Nails. I am so honored that Ms. Shelby Lou asked me to guest post for exciting blogiversary! A blogiversary is a very exciting thing (I'm approaching a blogiversary, myself!). I've absolutely loved getting to know Shelby, and her nails are divine. I thought I would honor her blog by recreating some of her nail art that I really love. Shelby did some really cool nude and neon zebra stripes a while back that I adore. I'm not much of a stamper, preferring generally to freehand. This is my take - freehand nude and neon zebra stripes!

I began by applying two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff, which is one of my favorite nude shades for nail art. Then I used a small detail brush and OPI A Definite Moust-Have to create the zebra stripes. I top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

A big thanks to Shelby Lou for having me as a guest post today! If you want to check out my work, you can head on over to The Dalai Lama's Nails


So I am totally in love with these nails! I am a stamper myself, but these freehand neon stripes over the best nude ever... *drool*. Teach me your secrets, Hannah! If you are not following her already, you are welcome. The Dalai Lama's Nails is also about to celebrate three years of nail blogging which is quite an achievement! Thank you so much, Hannah, for doing today's post for me and making them so perfect :-)
