As some of you may know, I lost my first nail artist love, @basecoattopcoat to the west coast last December. I thought all hope was lost, until Kelly referred me to her colleague, Misleidys, and she worked this Saturnalia magic on my nails last week. I think I’m gonna be just fine. :) 

Misleidys is also at Valley NYC and you can follow her on Instagram here. I knew I wanted Saturn-themed nails after my Jupiter ones, so I went in with a selection of images taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft (during its tenure at the ringed planet). When it comes to Saturn, the more abstract the better in my opinion. I especially love the images that are just lines and dots because they look like minimalist art and it’s hard to believe things really look like that!

@basecoat-topcoat has outdone herself this time. Since I’ll never be able to afford an actual piece from Valentino’s Cosmo Collection, I figured this was the next best thing. Plus, this way I can “wear” Valentino every day. I feel so fancy!

ICYMI, @basecoat-topcoat (aka Kelly Ornstein) is the best nail artist ever. She did my galaxy nails, Hubble nails, and visible spectrum via Pink Floyd nails too. 

As you might expect, I’m having a hard time paying attention to the real world and not swooning over my nails all day, everyday. ;)
