If there's one thing that I WISH I had the patience for, it would be to sit down at the end of the day and paint my nails a new, cool design. I've always loved to do my own nails and, although I really love getting a professional manicure, I'll often try to fix them up myself but rarely do I have time for a full-on nail art design.

To be honest, some of them seem SO ridiculous to be--but that's why I love them! The I really want right now is OPI's new "black spotted" nail polish (kind of like that crackle stuff), but it's not available in the U.S. yet. In the meantime, I've been collecting some super amazing nail art design ideas on Pinterest. Seriously, these are the coolest ones out there. Check them out!

Well, how could I NOT include an Olympics-inspired nail design? Although there have been a few out there, I think this one (with the oh-so-delicate rings) is my favorite.

Maybe it's because I'm obsessed with The Hunger Games book series and movie, but these nails seem like the greatest thing since... well, since the movie hit theatres.

I live in NYC, which might explain why I love these... but everything about them, from the dusk-setting to the big, tall buildings, just speaks to me.
