31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 11-Polka Dots

24 Nov

Today I did my Polka Dot nails, with Essie’s Ballet slippers and a random Sally’s beauty mini polish.  The dots turned out okay, considering it was only my second time doing this pattern.



31 Day Nail Challenge – Day 7 – Black and White Nails

29 Sep

I am SOOOOOO excited to show you all my nails for today!  This is pretty much the first real nail art I have done (and this isn’t really real nail art, lol).   The polishes I used were both from dELiA’s.  Sorry my nails are super short!  I put the tutorial I used to get this look down below the pic.


The tutorial I got this idea from:  (andreaschoice, another awesome YouTube channel)

The only thing I did differently was paint the tips less, and use black crackle polish.





“Salon Express” Nail Stamper

21 Jun

Recently I got the “Salon Express” Nail Stamper.  For this I used Sinful colors dark purple (I don’t know the name), over Megan by Zoya.  Make sure the polish you are using as the design is thick enough, or else the design won’t come out as good.  The kit came with a stamper, a scraper, 5 differant design plates, and a thing to put the the plate you are using on.  Here is a quick tutorial (sorry the pics are so bad, it’s hard to take pics with one hand!):



Megan and unnamed Sinful colors polish



Chose a design (I will use the squares), and clean the scraper, the stamper, and the design you will be using if you have gotten polish on the plate.  Keep a cotton ball with nail polish remover on it close by to do some cleaning.



Cover the design you want with the nail polish of your choice.



Scrape off the top layer of polish, so just the design shows through.



Press the stamper down hard on the design, so that you pick up the whole thing.



Press the stamper down on your nail.  You will probably have to clean the edges.



The finished look!





Here is a picture of the directions on the box:





31 Day Nail Challenge – INTRO

14 May

I am going to start the 31 DAY NAIL CHALLENGE!!!  I probably will only do about one a week, because I don’t like to change my polish too often.  Feel free to join in (tell me if you do and send me pics!).



  • One post per day
  • If you miss one, pick it up the next day
  • Post a picture of each mani
  • It would be nice if you listed/linked to what polishes you used
  • For the inspiration prompts, SHOW US YOUR INSPIRATION/SHARE LINKS
  • HAVE FUN!!!

NOTE: don’t want a new look every day? Go at your own pace! The big goal is to get through all 31 manicures… and notice how your skills grow!

p.s. I got the idea for this challenge from http://maesbeauty.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/30-nail-challenge/

Marbled Nails

11 Apr

Yesterday I tried out the marble nails trend for the first time!  It was really fun.  If you don’t know what I am talking about here is a good tutorial I found on YouTube:

My observations:

The tutorial part starts at 1:10

You can use vaseline instead of tape to keep the polish off your nails

I think the pattern looks better with more than two colors

You don’t have to pick up all of the polish with the tooth pick after you put you nail on the design,  but the design won’t be as good


I started by just doing an accent nail

Polishes I used: OPI “Manicurist of Seville”, China Glaze “Awakening” Essie “Ballet Slippers”






P.S.  The polishes I used came out redder than they really are in the photos!

Blue Nails!

6 Apr

I just wanted to show you all my REALLY pretty nails for this weekend!  They are blue glitter with darker blue polka dots.  I am really into nail art, like this, these days. 🙂






P.S.  Sorry the photo quality is so bad, I don’t have a real camera available at the moment!
