These are moon nails, and they are super easy to do and make your nails look so put together ❤

you will need
*two contrasting nail polishes (I used a hot pink and a pastel pink)
*re-enforcement labels
*top coat (optional)

how to
1) paint the entire nail with the first color
2) let it dry completely.(This step is very very very important because you will be sticking the circles over it)
3) ad the circle adhesives over where your moon would be.
4) paint over it with your other color
5) peel of the sticker SLOWLY and voila!
6) once dry apply the top coat and you have a pretty mani 😉

Valentines Day Tutorial

22 Jun

So Valentines day is almost here and wether your planning on celebrating it or not the great thing is that you have a great excuse to wear pink. Which I must say looks great on everyone
So to help you celebrate, I will be uploading posts this week to get you ready. I’ll post Valentines nails you can do, getting ready to look gorgeous and hand made gifts 😉
Here’s my manicure to give you loads of ideas. It I’m going to be posting the design for each nail separately.

Here is the tutorial for hearts on your nails…
what you’ll need

20120206-155142.jpg
1) a light pink base coat
2) a hot pink stripes nail polish (the kind that has the super thin brush)
3) a hot pink nail pen (to clean up the heart and make it look prettier)
**) if you have a steady hand you can probably use just the pen or the stripes nail polish you might not need both. Just depends on how good you are. But I needed both 🙂

ok let’s get started

(sorry the colors look a little washed out they are much brighter in person, my camera was doing some weird thing with the lighting)

#1. Start with your base coat a solid pretty light pink
#2 Make a V at the bottom half of your nail with the hot pink stripes nail polish
#3 On the top half make a kind of m that meets up with the bottom V
#4 fill it in with the same hot pink color
*optional* define your heart a little more by going over it with your nail pen.
Finish it off with with your top coat
… and your ready to set off on your adventures but instead of having your heart on your sleeve you’ll have it on your nails 😉
Have fun!

Purple and pink cheetah nails tutorial

22 Jun

This is a really fun nail art to have and it’s pretty simple since there is no reason for perfection the little imperfections are what makes them look tres tres chic⚡

So this is what the finished product looks like

20120126-142109.jpg

you will need:
A lavender nail polish mines from sephora
A neon pink nail polish mines from Sally Girl
A black nail polish mines is Nabi
And a dotting tool
Oh and of course nail polish remover and some make up pads to use with it

20120126-142452.jpg
* the pink nail polish is really neon. It for some weird reason didn’t photograph well.

So here is the simple way to do this:

20120126-142909.jpg
1. Coat your nail with the lavender color
2. Using a dotting tool (or the round end of a bobby pin) make random dots/squares with the pink. *But not to close to each other
3. using the smaller side of your dotting tool or a toothpick get black and make brackets [ ] and parenthesis ( ) around the pink dots
4. Finish by putting little dots in the empty spaces
voila! Your done let then dry and put a top coat if you’d like. I prefer not to because I like the way the texture looks
