Guest Post ~ Steph from Imperfectly Painted

Hello! This is Steph from Imperfectly Painted. One of my favorite recent trends is the accent nail. You want to know why? Let’s face it,  I’m nail art challenged. There are many talented nail art ladies out there that I give props to, but for me, the less hassle the better. This is exactly why I love an accent nail. An accent nail is a fun way to be creative with polish without having to commit your time and patience to nail art. The following is a recent accent nail manicure I did that I loved.

Here I used L.A. Girl Hustle as my main polish. This is one of my favorite bright blurples, and it is from their Disco Brites collection. I complimented this polish by using OPI Mad as a Hatter as an accent nail. I love how Mad as a Hatter had similar color glitters in it as Hustle. These polishes play off each other nicely, and you can’t go wrong with a little bling! I like to do my accent nails either with glitter or a complimentary color. I bet it would be cool to even try nail art on an accent nail; that way you’re still not spending a lot of time doing art on every single nail. I think I should try that, it seems like a more doable challenge for me! You certainly can unleash your creativity and do your accent nail anyway you please. I’m always on the lookout for accent nail inspiration on blogs and Pinterest! 

I want to thank Lakeisha for the opportunity to guest post for her. She is one of the kindest bloggers I know. Best wishes to her with the completion of her dissertation and doctoral degree!


Super cute mani Steph! You know I love an accent nail as well. I love the look of nail art on accent nails for two reasons: I’m lazy and sometimes nail art on all fingers looks a bit busy to me. Maybe we can tackle a few nail art trends together! Steph is one of the sweetest bloggers I’ve interacted with. If for some odd reason you’ve been under a rock for the last couple of years and you haven’t checked out Imperfectly Painted, please take the time to do so today!
