Jennifer Lawrence has absolutely taken Hollywood by a storm. In the last year, all the movies she’s starred in I’ve absolutely loved: Silver Linings Playbook, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and American Hustle (I’ve yet to see The House at the End of the Street or The Devil You Know). How on earth is she only 23 years old? I mean is that even possible?…

Who loved the golden globes last night? To be honest I thought they were a little boring, BUT I was tuned in for red carpet opening hour to check out all the dresses.  There were definitely some dresses that stood and a number that inspired me to design some Golden Globe nail art (yes I sat in front of the tv with my sketch book)…so…

The big day is almost here, and do you know how you’re painting your nails? I haven’t decided yet…I know I’m leaving it close, but I think it might be some new christmas nail wraps that were just sent to me. Otherwise, I have a bunch of christmas nail art designs I’ve played with over the last month that haven’t quite made it to nailthataccent.com…

Would love any feedback you have (positive and constructive) as I’m working towards optimizing this for my readers. Today I have a quick and easy tape…

Now we can start to look forward to winter because Essie has come out with a fabulous winter 2013 polish collection that is a MUST HAVE. Gone are the greys and blacks of last winter…
