Pretty Nails with Karen

Pretty Nails with Karen


Is Prism Break still available? I love it as an accent!
Silly question. How can we tell which ones are transparent enough for layering. I tried to layer the electric yellow under the toile, but you can’t see the yellow at all.
Trinity got her nails did! Love color St.
Ready for Halloween! Love that the ghosts glow in the dark.
Trinity (age7) loves her 🐾 Paws For The Cause 🐾 color street nail strips. She says they are the best and way cooler then regular nail polish!
Wishing everyone a very Happy Mother’s Day!
Check this out... yeah they look gross now, but this was over 2 weeks. Beach, cleaning the house, and a week of Cub Scout camp! These nails can take a beating!

Need a quick Pick Me Up but don’t have an hour (or the $$) for a salon mani/pedi? Look no further! Dry Nail Polish Strips lasting up to 14 days are here! Always available online, but Karen does vendor events, online and in person hosting as well.

Operating as usual

The new fall line is stunning. Check out Scot Topic... Single Layer only!

For those that love the darker colors, check this out! It rivals Soho Over It (IMO)

Sahara Jewel + Made in Milan

Gorgeous, don't you think?!

Sometimes you just need to get creative when your favorite style isn't in stock.

Check out this self-made (not by me) mani!

Swiss & Tell
Clear as Day
Plus a little red sharpie for the baseball stripes!

Batter Up!

Do you like colors that change depending on the light? Then Suit Yourself is for you!

Snake Skin is VERY in this season. Where I'm not a fan, this is eye catching. It may be the only snake I get close to! (Keep the real ones away please!)

Ok Friends lovers... you should get this one without the answer!

What are we thinking about this color?

This is one of the styles I wasn't so sure of. BUT it does have some glitter, so it pops! Color Street is on point this season (but they always are!)

My green lovers will be all in for this style!

Having a little fun with the names of our new styles this week.... Hey, we all need a laugh!

Tell me what you think about this style!

If you joined my VIP group, you would have seen some of the new styles up close! But not to worry, you aren't left out if you follow here.

My favorite meme of the week is here!

Did you hear that some Fall Beverage items are ALREADY coming out?

Sorry PSL, but please wait until September.

However, fall inspired manis... I'll go for it!

Moscow or Never + Swiss & Tell + Upper East Side + Coming Up Rose Gold

Teachers Rock. Add some Color Street, and their creative side really comes out.

Here's how this mani was put together!

Sometimes, the simple manis are the best, don't you think?

Swiss & Tell + Less Bitter, More Glitter

Sometimes the holiday special sets are such a hit that they just don't go away. I'm so glad this one stuck around. It's STUNNING all year round!

Czech Me Out

Look at all of the pretty styles in stock now... INCLUDING new FALL sets!

To balance the blues this week, I needed a little pink. How's this one?

Himalayan Salt + Party in the USA (over Chilladelphia)

I just may add something to my current mani when I'm not loving it "as is" in a few days.... I feel like this has me looking at the stars!

Pool Intentions + Tiny & Shiny


I just may or may not have 1 extra of both of the sets that make up this GEM of a mani. Hit me up if this is one you must have.... I.can't.stop.looking.....

Blue-Dapest+ Underground Magic

This is just such a classy look.

At the Plaza + Coming Up Rose Gold

This is a neutral mani..... I absolutely love all of these shades.

Giza Sands + Upper East Side + Shangri-La (over Upper East Side)

Which color is catching your eye?

I wasn't sure I loved this set... now I'm starting to change my mind.

Frond of You

Yay or Nay for you?

Are you loving the Nailfies? Do you want to share your own? I'd love to see them!!

Here are some tips to help you get that great shot!

This is an EASY mixed mani!

Moscow or Never + Home Sleet Home

Who's trying this?

When you bring scissors to your sets, you get some amazing results. Enter this Sunset inspired Nailfie!

Sunset Boulevard + Long Time No Sea + Palm Before the Storm

I finally took this set off my nails, but I do hope Color Street does bring it back. I'm kicking myself for only getting one!

Atomic Sparkle

Did you grab any of this set from the Stylist Lab? I will absolutely try this one!

Bee You + Tiny & Shiny


This one caught my eye --- Sakura Festival is just beautiful.

Gloss Angeles + Polka Dot Com + Sakura Festival

What do you think?

Not feeling like stripes are your thing? Need them to sit a little differently so you can be your own woman?

Check this out!

1 - Remove Strip from Front/Back packaging.
2 - Lay on Nail in a Diagonal Direction
3 - Use Cuticle pusher to smooth on nail
4 - Use Wooden Stick to GENTLY pierce the strip where Nail meets Skin.

And there you go!

Easy Peasy!

Are you loving the Nailfies? Do you want to share your own? I'd love to see them!!

Here are some tips to help you get that great shot!

Sunflowers... the epitome of summer!

Midnight in Manhattan + Electric City + Tokyo Lights

Add a few hole punchers for the win!

Stylists are amazing people.

Check out this "make your own"!

Blue-Dapest + Glamsterdam!

With all the beach Nailfies, I think I need a serious vacation. Until then, I'll just stare at this one...

Electric City (base) + Oslo and Steady + Any Fin Goes + Starfish decal

Can I go to the Bermuda?

This combo is stunning!!!

Northern Wonder + Palm Before the Storm


If I tell you this set is in stock, don't pass it up! (it's not, but we never know what WILL come back!)

Black Cherry Bon-Bon is stunning!

I will be the first to tell you I don't have the patience to do this... but it is beautiful!

Swiss and Tell + Nevada Neon + Fashion Prague-er + Caribbean Coral + Oslo & Steady
