My Top 10 Favorite Nail Art Posts of 2014

Nail Art by @chalkboardnails
2014 was an amazing year. I visited the set of the first nail art reality show, was on TV myself, attended my first beauty trade show, judged a nail art competition, taught teens how to do nail art at a local library, started a nail art challenge group, and cohosted many successful Twitter chats.

Before I look forward into 2015 and all it has in store (nail school!), I want to take a moment to review some of my favorite nail art looks of the last year. As usual, it was nearly impossible to narrow this list down. These are in no particular order, except for the last one, which was my favorite of the year.

Here's to a fantastic 2015!


  1. I love all of these! I wish I could do nail art but I don't have a steady enough hand for it (:

  2. Great picks for your favorites! They were all so awesome.

  3. All great looks Sarah! My favourite is the galaxy nails, there's something about the variations in colours and intricacies that make these really appealing for me. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do in 2015. :)

  4. The Fireflies is my absolute favorite of the year. So many wonderful and awesome looks!

  5. I'm afraid if you get any better, my head will explode. I guess it's worth the risk. Can't wait to see what you have in store for all of us this year!

  6. The sunflower one is my favorite. I wish I had the skills to pull this off myself. Happy new year!
