Workaholic Wendsdays: Chalkboard Nails

For the first installment of "Workaholic Wendsdays" I have a very special treat for you. The amazing blog.... "Chalkboard Nails"!! Not only is this blog a showcase for some of the most amazing nail art I've ever seen, but it also provides you (the reader) with all the information you'd ever need to start becoming an amazing nail artist yourself. Below you'll find a few pictures advertising Sarah's lovely work as well as a fantastic "how to" for EYEBALL NAILS!?! If I can actually pull this off (never done nail art before..) I'm going to have the most beautiful nails for the rest of my life! Thank you Sarah for being such a bad ass and making all my dreams come true. ;)
