Just a quick update tonight. I'm suffering lady cramps today. They hurts :(
Anyhoot, I wanted purple nails today and I love orange with purple so I ended up with little monsters on my nails (hehe GaGa reference) I think they're cute...though I got a little impatient so they're a bit messed up now >.>
And because I can, a better shot of the thumb! Grrr! hehe
I set out to do something different last night and I ended up having a lot of fun with it. I used paint this time around as there were a lot of layers and I could imagine the sticky mess I'd be in if I just used polish. So, here we have it, my under the ocean/underwater/sea inspired manicure.
Two things to talk about here today. First, I was given the Sweet Blog Award by Less Than A Queen :D
I'm really starting to feel like I'm part of the Blogger/Nail Blogger community now so thanks so much everyone for that!
- Put the award on your blog.
- Let your nominated 10 know you've awarded them by leaving a comment.
Now I have to nominate 10 others! Unfortunately, a lot of people already have this award so I'm just going to nominate a few that I don't believe have it...
I painted my nails last night and I've got the photos and everything done but I don't want to overload on designs and look like I'm obsessed with doing my nails (even though I am) so that will be posted some time today. Also, Renee asked me to play with her nails again so I should be doing that today...I have to come up with some ideas...
Thanks for reading! :)
Wow, so much to say in this here post. First, I'm now a member of the Gumleaf Mafia which is so darn awesome! Those are the girls that inspired me to record and share what I like to do with my nails and now I'm listed with them. Ohh yeah. Also, it's introduced some new followers/subscribers to my blog so thank you so much! I think that's super awesome and all that jazz!
Second, I cut mah nails, the length was driving me crazy! However, I cut too much than I intended but hey, they'll grow. Lately I've been throwing on a really thin layer of acrylic to help keep my nails strong, they're so soft usually and it also stops polish from chipping so that's awesome.
Anyway, to the nail art! I messed around trying to find something to do with this length so I tried that "on nail marbling" where you blend with a top coat. Worked out quite cool if you ask me ;)
What I used; Again, that unamed lavender that I'm in love with! Blending with Ultra3 in Bo Peep. Lastly CoverGirl in White Night for the peace signs and finally a coat of Out The Door.
What I want to ask is if anyone has advice for nail art for shorter nails? What do you think would look good on my nails? haha
What I used: Rossburn Cosmetics, which has no name! The lavender colour. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Platinum, Ultra3 in Baby Pink, Ultra3 in Bo Peep and Hawley Manicure Pen/Brush in Black.
- One coat of N.Y.C in Snazzle
- One coat of Satin in #37 (rainbow glitter)
- CoverGirl in White Night
- Hawley Manicure pen in Black
- Ultra3 in Baby Pink for the cheeks :)
What I used: One-Two coats of Inglot's Matte Black 730. I used the Konad plate M19 for the "feature nail" and layered it, and M57 for the rest with NYC Color in Snazzle.
My first nail art post is the nails I have done now. Marbling! Because it's simple (if you have the patience!) And you always come up with something different! Whenever I marble I always put some medical tape around my nail beds and fingers, it makes the clean up super easy!
With this mani I dunked my nail in a few times, layering the colours which turned out really cool!
For this design I used: Ultra3 in Honolulu for the base. For the marble; Ultra3 in Plum Violet and Rimmel London 60 Seconds in 430 Coralicious. As well as two glitters, Revlon Glimmer Gloss in Banana Blaze 615 and Sirray no. 117
The glitter is so subtle it's not even worth it! Next time I won't use those two polishes for marbling!
So here it is, my first post on blogger! I've had this account for quite a while, I mostly follow nail blogs and I figured, why not do my own?! I love painting my nails, I try not to do it every day but I find that difficult at times! Haha
I'm currently a beauty student, make-up application and design and nail technology (who-da thunk it!?)
On this blog I'll be sharing all things nails! Nail polishes and products I buy, want to buy, nail art I've created, or acrylics I've done! I'll also list all the products I use, in case you spot something you like!
So without further ado, welcome to my nail blog, I hope you enjoy it!
