Makeup with Marisa // We All Scream For I Scream (Nails)

“I don’t like plain nails. I get sad.”

Zooey Deschanel ‘nailed it’ with this quote and I couldn’t have said it better myself!

Like I am sure most of you do, I love spoiling myself with a manicure. Sitting back, getting a nice hand massage and relaxing while my nails get painted in pretty colours is my idea of a good time.

But if you want a manicure that is fun, unique and truly reflects your personality then I Scream Nails is the place to go! I recently paid my local I Scream Nails salon a visit and I just had to share my amazing mani with you!

On arrival at the salon you get to select what design/s you would like from their custom menu. You can have either have a different design on each nail or just one or two as feature nails and they have hundreds of designs to choose from such as basic nail art or more detailed creations like Unicorns, Cupcakes, Cute Animals, Sunsets, French Fries – yes French Fries! If you give them prior warning you can also get a custom design. Sometimes the artists have their own specialties or you can ask for your own design. For example when I was getting my nails done one of the artists was designing a set of Nicki Minaj/Anaconda nails – I am talking her butt, heels, face, a different thing on each nail from the music video – they looked incredible and I immediately had nail envy!


Once you have decided what design you would like (if you procrastinate as much as I do the selection process could take a while hehe) the amazingly talented and lovely staff work their magic and bring these amazing designs to life! The precision and patience they have is amazing and considering all the art is painted by hand no design is too tricky for them to master! They have all the tools of the trade and you’ll even pick up a few tips or two which you could try yourself at home.

Today I opted for some fruity, magical designs consisting of a unicorn, pineapple, stars, grapefruit slices and a mermaid glitter print and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

And if after all that it’s still not enough you have the option to add a little bling!
Diamantes, plastic bows, trinkets, gems - less is definitely not more!
