Nails of the Day: Candy Sweet!

Candy Nails

I love anything girly and adorable, and I really wanted to make my nails express that! I recently bought some fimo clay slices from eBay and had a ton of fun making my nails look like delish candy!

I love the personality of this art as well as the long wear of my Kiss Press on Nails! I’m really happy I began using fimo clay to decorate my nails, the charms are affordable as well as adorable! I hope to soon make a tutorial on how to get this nail look, I hope you like it?

DIY Cute Press On Nails

DIY Cute Press On Nails

Hey everybody! I wanted to show off my first manicure using fake nails from Kiss!

I have to say that I’m quite satisfied with these press on nails. Although things didn’t go perfectly I can’t wait to wear more sets soon.

The nail design features a girly pink that pops nicely against my skin and little bows on the thumbs with the word “cute” painted there and on the pinky fingers.

I’ll be uploading a tutorial soon! Hope you like the nails!

Dramatic Nail Art

Again, this is a design I did quite awhile back, but I have to say that I love the drama and simplicity of this design. I wanted to share it with you all and teach you how to recreate it!

1: Paint on a clear base coat.

2: Pick out a nude color or similar shade as your glitter polish and use that to go under your glitter polish.

3: Paint your entire thumb in two coats of glitter.

4: Paint the tips of the rest of your nails in glitter.

5: Take a black nail art pen or a toothpick dipped in polish and draw arcs on each nail, right above the tips.

I used many different polishes to create these abstract stripes. The design features differently sized stripes in one palette while the pinky fingers are more curved. IF you’d like to learn how to create this look, read the directions below!

1: Paint on a base coat to protect nails.

2: Paint each nail in the base color you would like. You can pick whatever base you want, you’ll be covering them with stripes later.

Hey there everyone! I wanted to do a simple and cute design with some of the new polishes I bought in a giant makeup haul and thought I would it share it with you!

1. Prep with OPI’s Fast Forward Base Coat. I find this polish really helps keep the rest of the lacquer on.
