Cadillac Nails....says Jack

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there!!!!

Let me just start off saying, that this mani is all Jacks idea. When he saw my new Urban Decay polishes, he grabbed this one, and said "oooohhh, you can do Cadillac nails, because it's just like the paint job you see on them."  Haha, he is too cute. So, I figured I would try it out.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze White on White. Oh and as you probably noticed, I nubbinized my nails. They were just getting so long, and I was terrified I would do serious harm to them, and well me. I had already scratched myself and others numerous times, eeek. I'm also going camping at the end of the month, so I figured I will try and keep them semi short for the trip.


I then did just 1 coat of  Urban Decay Fluorescent. It really is pretty. Just the slightest pearlized color to it.


Hope you guys are all having a great weekend!!

  1. Nice combo ! I wouldn't try that because of my skin tone, white is terrible on me, but it's pretty on you :)

  2. Gorgeous! I've only just discovered your blog but already I'm addicted! I'm a complete beginner (I can only do polka dots right now) but I can't wait to try some of your tape manis! (And hopefully start my own blog when my nail designs get good enough!)

  11. Wow. My uncle used to have Cadillac that EXACT color!!! I like that nail length - not nubby to me! I'd love for mine to be that length, but they always break before they all get there.

  16. I really like this look. I would love to get my nails as long as your "nubbinized" version, lol. I am so hard on my nails, I do good to get them to the tips of my fingers.

  17. I loooove your nails! They're the perfect shape! Of all the nail polish blogs i read, yours is my favorite! I'm from the Philippines, and good nail polishes are hard to come by, plus they're a bit pricey.
