I just have to share my nerdy (yet classy) nails. Black, white, and grey since I’m working a lot more recently with black and white photography. I love what we do to add personality to our appearance. I’ve gotten my arms decorated too.

Thanks to Angela at Foxy Nails for doing such a great job. #foxynails #blackandwhite #nails #tattoo #semicolonproject #semicolontattoo #nerd #photographer
