Stormy Skies Nail Art for Kelly

It's been a while since I made such a wonderful mess over a couple days to create a design. I had many polish bottles, brushes, paints, liquids, etc. spread out all over my work space. It felt good!! I admit, I waited one more day before tidying up -- viewing the aftermath was satisfying.

Happy 3 Year Blogiversary Kimett Kolor!! Plus Giveaway!

C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-O-N time!!

It's been 3 years since I started Kimett Kolor!!

Wow. Just. Wow.

And, what a great adventure it has been! I've found a much greater enjoyment in nail art and blogging that I ever anticipated. Through this hobby, I've also made many connections with folks all over the world that I will always cherish. There are constant ways to grow and expand with new products and techniques. Indie brands have brought unique and more personal choices to nail art. For these reasons and many more, I'm very much looking forward to three more years (at least)!

Crimson Flowers for #maniswapcircle


It is undeniable that nail art is more enjoyable when accompanied by really great polish. It's been three years since I started this blog and I'm unashamed to admit that I've amassed quite the collection. For me, having lots of choices makes the experience feel that much more decadent. Speaking of decadence...take a look at these nails...

Science Is Girly - Nail Art for Silvie

Hello. I have some special dotty nails to share with you today. There's a bit of an explanation that goes along with them that I'll get to during this post. But suffice it to say, I was in a unique brain space when coming up with these!

You see...these nails were created for a unique gal. She likes pink and girly designs, she's got a cheeky sense of humor, and she's a physicist who studies optics and lasers. And, it was her birthday.
