When Birchbox approached me to be a Guest Blogger, I was beyond excited. I’m not only a huge fan of Birchbox, but also a subscriber. If you’re not familiar with it, Birchbox is a beauty subscription site that sends a customized box- based on your needs- of sample products for just $10 a month… a beauty lover’s dream. I gifted a subscription to my mom for her birthday and she loves it too.
This week I give tricks, tips and nail art tutorials. Be sure to follow!

You may have noticed that here at Birchbox, we have a deep, abiding love for all things nails. Which is why nail artist extraordinaire Taryn Multack, a.k.a Miss Ladyfinger, is a great fit as this week’s guest blogger. Multack, who’s spent time working at fashion staples like Oscar de la Renta and W Magazine, uses trends and looks straight from the runway to create gorgeous, imaginative designs for her digits. The most impressive part? She does all of her art while keeping a day job in the fashion world. This week, she teaches us how to make our nails just as fabulous as hers.
Let me just first say that I am not a nail technician. I repeat: not a nail technician. I’m simply a fashion industry gal with a steady hand, but we all need to start somewhere, right? Miss Ladyfinger started out as the typical nail blog, swatching colors as I purchased them. (Side note: It’s embarrassing, but I admit to spending more money on polish than on clothes.) It wasn’t until I bought my first nail art pen that things got interesting. Like any art form, a blank canvas can be intimidating. Luckily, my day job requires that I immerse myself in fashion runway images to gain inspiration, so that’s exactly what I did. I’m here to tell — and show — you how you can, too.
